When it comes to off-road vehicles, the Jeep Wrangler tends to get the most attention. Without proper research, shoppers will often write the Wrangler off as the greatest off-road machine ever made. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class vs 2016 Jeep Wrangler comparison might be a little out of place because of the enormous range in price but in terms of off-road capability, you will see why the G-Class is priced so steep. 

On the outside, the G-Class and the Wrangler both embody unique styles that you won't find on any other vehicle. They both have lasted a long time without any major design changes and pictures of them usually include spinning tires and flying mud. Like dinosaurs, they will both be remembered for a long time after the petroleum automobile is extinct, but which one will get you up the mountain further?

Mercedes-Benz Performance

The biggest difference between the G-Class and the Jeep Wrangler is the power. With only an increase of .4 liters, the engine in the G-Class is able to produce 131 more horsepower than that of the Jeep. Granted, we can't forget the price difference as well, but in terms of off-road performance, more power is better. Additionally, the G-Class is taller, wider, and longer than the Wrangler. This provides drivers with more stability, ultimately leading to more comfort and safety. The G-Class and the Wrangler are legends in their own right, but if you can help it, don't skimp out with a Wrangler. For off-road purposes, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class vs 2016 Jeep Wrangler comparison is an easy one to conclude. The G-Class will get you farther up the mountain, regardless of what Jeep fans tell you.
