2013 Mercedes-Benz G550

Gentleman General Purpose There's an ATV slowly idling through the underbrush to my passenger side. Its rider's eyes are glued to the metallic purple bread van consuming every last square inch of the trail: a cube of glittering lunacy resting blissfully in the dappled light of a Tennessee morning. "I ain't never seen a Mercedes up here before." No sir, I suppose you haven't. I've spent the past three hours snaking the 2013 Mercedes-Benz G550 up and down the less-travelled trails of the Windrock OHV Recreation area, laughing maniacally as $118,355-worth of German engineering...

    If you're in the market for a high-performance SUV, you've got plenty of choices at your disposal, and soon you'll have even more. And a healthy portion of those come with a Silver Star on the nose. Mercedes-Benz already offers the ML63 AMG, GL63 AMG and G63 AMG – all powered by the same 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 – in American showrooms. Soon ...

    As a reformed hooligan, there is still nothing more paralyzing to me than flashing red and blue lights matched with the sound of a siren, on a car headed right toward me. But it happens. And it happened while I stood in a cold Detroit parking lot taking the photos of the matte black 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG you see here. On its own, the Merc ("Darth ...

    1407783600

    Like the famously bizarre Lamborghini LM002, the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 feels like a vehicle that shouldn't even exist. With 544 horsepower from a twin-turbocharged, 5.5-liter V8 routing through all six wheels and five locking differentials, the 6x6 can take on just about anything offroad that Mother Earth could throw at it. One intrepid owner wanted ...

    The creations that come from Dartz Motorz almost defy explanation. The company is known for modifying SUVs with so much over-the-top luxury that they seem unreal. For example, its last project was a Mercedes G63 AMG 6x6 with gold wheels and a portable smoking room. The company's latest foray into automotive insanity is another take on the G63 6x6 called ...

    The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has been on the market for a whopping 35 years. That's a heck of a long time for one vehicle to stick around, yet Autocar reports that last year was the Geländewagen's strongest in terms of sales. Little wonder then that Mercedes is in no rush to discontinue the G-Wagen, but it does reportedly have some serious updates lined ...

    Hey, Mercedes-Benz. I love you guys. Seriously. I recently had a blast driving your hot little CLA45 AMG for a week, but now I'm looking for something... bigger. Something a little more, shall we say, robust. Something I can use to really explore the urban Detroit landscape. And lo, according to your Facebook page, it appears you've brought a G63 AMG 6x6 ...

    Much like the Humvees that participated in last month's Head 2 Head, the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG and G63 AMG 6x6 in the latest installment are some of the toughest off-road vehicles money can buy. And you'll need a lot of money to buy the 6X6 - at least $500,000. We're not sure why Mercedes-Benz decided to improve the Geländewagen's already fabled ...

    There are few vehicles that have been on the market as long as the Mercedes-Benz Geländewagen. Magna Steyr has been building it for Mercedes since 1979, and it's not about to stop any time soon. But the convertible version, according to the latest reports, may not be long for this world. Like the Land Rover Defender or Jeep Wrangler – two ...

    Unstoppable. That's what comes to mind when images of the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 cross our screen, as it's usually annihilating some barren stretch of desert. In reality, though, the über-G-Wagen isn't all that unstoppable - it may have six-wheel drive, but it's a car, more or less like any other. That's why Texas Armoring has essentially made ...

    We didn't think things could get any more bonkers when Mercedes-Benz released the G63 AMG 6x6. But that's before we landed in Frankfurt and saw what Brabus has done with the beast. The Benz tuner par excellence has applied its B63S performance package to increase the 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8's output from 536 horsepower up to 690 and from 561 pound-feet ...

    Vehicle performance tests are serious business, with reputations made or broken by things like braking distance, top speed, and lateral g-forces. King of the metrics, though, is the 0-60 run, which for unknown reasons has become the benchmark for what truly makes a car a performance machine. Now, Chris Harris from Drive has turned the whole idea behind ...

A seven-speed gearbox shuttles power to the ground via three sets of portal axles, which helps give this machine a full 15.75 inches of ground clearance. By comparison, the standard G63 AMG ...
