2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Buyer's Guide
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is a luxury sport utility vehicle with seating for five passengers. The Mercedes-Benz G-Class, also known as the G-Wagen, went into production in 1979 and it is still available. It was originally developed as a military SUV, focusing on safety, comfort, and off-road ability, and gradually became suitable for on-road civilian use. The G-Class is updated periodically with new drivetrains and features, but considerable refreshes and overhauls aren’t part of Mercedes-Benz’s strategy for this vehicle. A new drivetrain and new trim level join the lineup for 2016. The G-Class is generally not a volume seller, although the United States is one of its biggest markets, with 3,090 units sold in 2014.

What makes it move?
New for 2016, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class features a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8. It’s smaller than 2015’s 5.5-liter unit, but offers a considerable bump in output, providing 416 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. The 2016 G63 AMG carries over its twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8 that now makes 563 horsepower and the same 560 lb-ft of torque. The new G65 AMG model gets 621 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque from its twin-turbo 6.0-liter V-12.
Why buy the 2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class?
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is not a practical vehicle, so it’s best left to buyers who don’t need to rationalize the purchase. However, the G-Class has represented luxury and power for more than 30 years, so if that’s the goal, it’s a great choice. The 2016 G-Class is a very well designed vehicle, and is one of the few SUVs on the market that still uses solid body-on-frame construction. It’s one of the oldest luxury sport utility vehicles in the world, so its effect is timeless. Despite the G-Class’ bulk, its powerful engine range provides good speed, and the vehicle offers plenty of standard and optional luxury features. All versions of the 2016 G-Class come with full-time all-wheel drive.
