2017 Mercedes-Benz G-Class vs Land Rover Range Rover

When it comes to full-size SUVs, there are few that compete with the G-Class and the Range Rover. On the outside, they are big, powerful, and durable. On the inside, they provide tons of cargo room and all the modern luxuries you can expect from a passenger vehicle. The G 63 and the Range Rover Autobiography in particular share many of the same characteristics, down to the price. 

The Land Rover and the Range Rover are built with the same purpose in mind. That purpose is to provide a driving experience that is both thrilling and comfortable at the same time. Under the hood, they both come with hefty V8 engines that make more than 500 horsepower. These engines, though very different from each other, are powerful enough to propel these 5,500-pound monsters from zero to 60 miles per hour in under six seconds. On paper, these two icons are extremely similar in terms of performance, but the Mercedes-Benz pulls ahead with its interior built for a king.

Mercedes-Benz Comfort and Convenience

The G-Class is an SUV that you really can't appreciate until you sit in it. Its exterior may mirror the traditional look that it has embodied since it was introduced in 1979, but the interior has gone through evolution after evolution, leading up to the work of art you see in front of you today.

One of the features that sets the G-Class above all others is the four-way locking differential configuration. With three easy buttons on the dashboard, drivers can send power to any combination of wheels. This versatility allows the G-Class to get out of any sticky situation. The G-Class also comes standard with COMAND®, Blind Spot Assist®, and Distance Pilot DISTRONIC®.
