Red is a color normally synonymous with sports cars and is a color not usually associated with Mercedes cars. But Brabus, as it usually does, has defied convention with this red G-Class, which fairly screams for attention with its all-red bodywork, including the grille and side mirrors. Contrasting black wheels make this Brabus Widestar-influenced SUV looking as aggressive as it can be. Knowing Brabus and its customers with big wallets, its safe to assume that performance upgrades are present in this sporty G-Class and unlike other low-slung sports cars that are limited to smooth pavement, this rugged beast can keep on going where the road ends.

Mercedes-Benz has been able to recover from the setback that the G-Class experienced in the Australian Outbacks, after their PR attempt for the G-Class backfired. The parts had been flown in and the mechanics where able to replace the damaged shock absorbers. Mercedes-Benz has overcome suspension issues to become first car maker to make it through one of Australia’s toughest roads. They traveled over 1600 kilometers, even passed a burnt-out Ford Explorer and a shell of a HiLux crew cab lying on its side – a stark reminder that the stunningly isolated outback route is also one of the more dangerous for the under-prepared. If you can still remember, the… Continue Reading »
Aiming to show Australians that their G-Class wagens have what it takes to tackle the Outback, Mercedes planned and organized an almost 1,200 mile trek across the historic Canning Stock Route. This route used to be a major lifeline in getting cattle from remote ranches to Perth. The expedition planned by Mercedes would start from Halls Creek (Western Australia) to Wiluna. Though now unused for its original purpose, this route is recognized as a great adventure route for trekkers. Aiming to finish the route in 14 days, the organizers set off in 7 G-Class wagons, which are vehicles that have admittedly proven themselves to be capable off-road warriors. But not… Continue Reading »

Although the 2012 Mercedes-Benz GL has no official launch date yet, it has already been spotted a number of times in heavily disguised form. In previous settings, observers have deduced that the GL will share the platform of the ML, although in stretched-out form. Now, it has most recently been seen in Sweden, obviously for some hard-edged testing in snow and icy conditions. The spy pics show a wide grill inspired by the R-Class and a front end reminiscent of the current E-Class. Additionally, new headlights and LED daytime running lights can be seen on the bumper. The rear of the vehicle was still successfully disguised so only conjecture will… Continue Reading »
Following the announcement of the relaunch of the Maybach brand in India, Mercedes has announced the introduction of the Geländewagen, more widely known as the G-Class. The first G-Class model to be marketed in the sub-continent is no less than the G55 which has been massaged by AMG. The Geländewagen (cross-country vehicle) has the distinction of being the longest-serving model in the Mercedes passenger vehicle range. Even though its basic look and layout has not changed since its introduction, the handsome ruggedness of the G-Class continues to appeal to a generation of well-heeled younger buyers. Powered by a 500 horsepower 5.5 liter V8, the G55 does the 0-60 sprint in… Continue Reading »

The G-Class was not the only winner for Mercedes-Benz, however. The Unimog multi-purpose four wheel drive medium truck was also considered by a majority of Off Road readers to be the best in the Special Vehicles category. With over three decades of production under its belt, the G-Class is the longest-serving model… Continue Reading »
