Mercedes-Benz G Class is stronger than a rock, stronger than the time, and stronger than any other SUV. Mercedes stated that on their page.

Mercedes G-Class is described as the most powerful SUV of the famous German car manufacturer, Mercedes. The German brand confidently said that their cars are stronger than a rock, stronger than the time, and even strong than asphalt. Such a bold statement! Mercedes-Benz G Class and the story about its success, here we go!

In Germany, the G Class is also called with a name  G-Wagen (short for Geländewagen, “terrain vehicle”). Its name proved why Mercedes-Benz G Class is suitable for off-roading experience and road trip.

Mercedes built up their testing camp for this product near the Alps, the highest mountain in Europe. And any cars, which pass the test on this mountainous region, will be allowed to be put on the market. Otherwise, it comes straight forward to the trash. The G Class is stable with the slogan of their producer: Be the best or nothing.

It could be misled with GLC, GLA, GLB, and GLS Class cars, but keep this in mind, the G Class is different from the GL Class. GL Class is the SUV for family and businessman or businesswoman, while its brother-the G Class-is born to become the king of off-roading and road trip.
