Survey: The 2019 Mercedes G550 SUV reclassifies the extravagance, rough terrain experience

The 2019 Mercedes G550 SUV

Mercedes first form the Geländewagen, which truly means rough terrain or off-road vehicle, as a military vehicle for the King of Iran. 

Repurposed for regular people in 1979, that rough, bygone original G-Wagen would remain underway for a long time and in the end get on with rappers, famous people and Instagram models. 
However the G-Wagen is a commonplace sight in Beverly Hills, a Range Rover rival with more frame of mind. So when Mercedes at last upgraded it after almost 40 years, there was a straightforward core value: don't destroy it. So regardless of another body, a hugely redesigned inside, better driving elements and more space, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G550 holds the old-school appeal and square shaped style of the first. It's a triumphant equation that makes the G-Wagen not at all like whatever else out and about. 

The great 

Notwithstanding being the most seasoned structure available by a couple of decades, the keep going Mercedes G-Class set a business precedent in 2017. That is in no little part on the grounds that the G-Class sits at the crossing point of two hot markets: trucks and restomods. 

Restomodding, for the uninitiated, is the act of taking old vehicle plans and refreshing them with present day innovation and execution. Vocalist, for example, is a California-based organization that rethinks Porsche 911s from the 1980s with refreshed segments. In spite of changes beginning at $395,000, the organization has a two-year holding up rundown.

The G550, however, is a restomod that you can have at this moment. For $153,115 as tried, you get the majority of the style and coolness of a military rough terrain driver from the 1970s with the solace and innovation of a cutting edge Mercedes. Yet, notwithstanding its freshly discovered acclaim as the go-to carry for Hollywood stars, the Benz hasn't overlooked where it originated from. 

With a substantial brush watch, heaps of ground freedom and a full-time four-wheel-drive framework with lockable differentials, the G-Wagen is worked to deal with genuine going 4x4 romping. The wheels are driven right up to the corners, which makes climbing steep territory a non-issue, while a torquey V-8 motor and a low-extend gearbox give you the oomph expected to bound up trails. 

The $6,500 premium paint employment may not urge you to stretch it as far as possible, however the robustness of the G550 essentially beseeches you to beat on it. On rutted trails or rock streets, the square shaped Benz absorbs maltreatment at all velocities. It feels more sure-footed and intense than, state, a Range Rover. Truth be told, the main other truck we've tried with a similar energetic disposition rough terrain is the Ford F-150 Raptor.

In any case, the Raptor didn't have the G550's lodge. Maybe the greatest improvement over the old G-Class, the inside is loaded up with rich materials and present day innovation. While the old G550 was obviously structured in a pre-infotainment, utilitarian age where cupholders were viewed as pointless comforts, the upgraded one takes Mercedes' industry-driving inside plan language and makes it progressively blocky and reasonable for the squared-off Geländewagen. 

There are two enormous presentations, a plenty of brushed aluminum trim and loads of open-pore fiery remains wood trim. Particularly with the multicolor LED surrounding lighting on and the kneading seats working ceaselessly, it's anything but difficult to consider this to be an inside befitting the $153,115 cost. 

The awful

Taking into account that the G550 is more than snappy enough to overpower the body, we most likely wouldn't prescribe venturing up to the G63 except if you're not objected about worth and need the big enchilada G-Class as a materialistic trifle or straight-line hot rod. 

As a rule, on the off chance that you organize street habits over style and ability, the G-Wagen likely isn't for you. In spite of the real jump forward with the new age, the G-Class is as yet an old-school truck on a basic level. It's not as agreeable, extensive or athletic as top of the line hybrids from Land Rover, BMW and even Mercedes itself.

At long last, we need to state that the G-Wagen is costly and wasteful on fuel at 17 mpg on parkways and 13 mpg in the city. Most planned purchasers taking a gander at a sumptuous V-8 German wilderness romper are presumably mindful of both of those angles, however from an absolutely down to earth perspective the G-Class is more costly than SUVs that offer more innovation and refinement, yet not even close as much ability or style. 

How we'd choice it 

The G-Class begins at $125,495 with the essential goal charge. While our analyzer's Desert Sand paint was a $6,500 add-on, there are a great deal of good hues accessible at no additional charge. The $12,200 Exclusive Interior Package, however, is a decent method to make the G-Class feel as pleasant inside as it looks outside. In addition, it's difficult to skip kneading seats. 

We'd likewise pay the $850 Mercedes charges to redesign from conventional measures to a 12.3-inch configurable bunch that can demonstrate route, interactive media and driving data. We'd skirt the versatile suspension, as no one actually needs a game mode in their ice chest molded SUV. You'll presumably wind up checking a couple of corrective alternatives to get the G-Class appearing as though you need it, however figure $137,550 for a G-Class with the choices we suggest.

Last considerations 

The G-Wagen is an unusual vehicle to prescribe in that it is intrinsically foolish. A V-8 box with 416 drive, locking differentials, rubbing seats and a structure from the 1970s is inalienably a strange recommendation. There's nothing else like it out there. 

What's more, that is the thing that makes it so great. While BMW X5s and Mercedes GLEs mix together, the G-Class is totally extraordinary. It's special, huge amounts of fun and unbelievably equipped rough terrain. Worth cognizant customers would be ideally serviced by conventional extravagance hybrids, yet on the off chance that you need capacity, status and preposterousness, the G-Wagen remains in a class of one.
