The Mercedes-Benz G-Class or G-Wagen, short for Geländewagen (or cross-country vehicle), is a four-wheel drive vehicle/sport utility vehicle and characterized by its boxy styling and body-on-frame construction. It utilizes three fully locking differentials, one of the few vehicles to have such a feature. Originally developed as a military vehicle and offered as a civilian version in 1979, it proved so competent and popular that demand has ensured it is still in production today. Demand came from all over the world with such patronage as the Vatican and the, now famous, series of 'Popemobiles' to use on the Paris-Dakar Rally and many exploratory trips including one to Siberia, the worlds coldest region and driving a standard model traveling 19,000km without breakdown in temperatures as low as -63°F.
With rugged good looks and a proven reputation for both on and off-road driving, this comes with a wealth of luxury items that easily brings this model up to date with other comparable offerings. Supplied with adjustable, heated leather seats, multifunction steering wheel and sunroof and as well the mechanical necessities such as locking differentials, low and high range automatic gearbox and an extremely flexible V8 engine this example also benefits from a command system fitted to the G500 series models offering full Satnav, cd and radio control as well as other monitoring systems. Running boards, AMG alloy wheels and tinted rear windows complete that package and with more heavy snow falls promised for this winter, where would you rather put your family.
