Automobiles don't come much harder-core than the Mercedes-Benz Geländewagen, but AMG has proven up to the challenge time and time again. From the base G-Wagen, the boys in Affalterbach have tuned out successively more powerful versions, but surprised even themselves with the release of the G63 AMG 6x6 last year.

Next Mercedes G-Class won't think outside of the box

Anyone that was afraid that Mercedes-Benz would follow the example of the Land Rover Range Rover and soften the looks of the iconic Geländewagen when it came time for a redesign need not worry. The iconic off-roader's brutalist design aesthetic will carry on, as it's essential to its character.

It's a common dream to just drop everything, load up the car and make a life on the open road traveling from place to place. The vast of majority of us just fantasize about it, but it's a reality for the German couple Gunther and Christine Holtorf. They are just finishing what might be the world's longest road trip covering around 560,000 miles in a Mercedes-Benz 300GD named Otto (pictured above right) over the past 26 years.

2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG goes Unplugged in Detroit

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 Benz" as my friend Eric aptly named it) looks all sorts of suspicious, with its murd

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

Mercedes working to comprehensively refresh G-Class

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 up for the vehicle that is, short of the Noah Joseph

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.

Mercedes takes bare-bones 461 series G-Class off the menu

Mercedes has managed to elevate one of its most utilitarian models to luxury status, but those familiar with the G-Class – or really anyone who's ever even seen one – will know that the Geländewagen is a true workhorse if there ever was one.

Say goodbye to the Mercedes G-Class convertible
