The Mercedes Benz G-Class has a long history dating back to the late 1970s when it was first introduced after a suggestion from the Shah of Iran.
Underneath the car is a platform built for off-roading with features such as 3 fully locking differentials and rack-and-pinion steering.
The high ground clearance and low amounts of overhang from the edge of the wheels to the end of the body help the G-Class perform well climbing and descending.
In 2018 the second generation of the SUV was released after the first served a long life of almost 50 years - very rare for a mass-produced car.
This new version was larger than the last with greater ground clearance and many other improvements to the chassis for both on-road and off-road performance.
The massive overhaul of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class allowed designers to incorporate lightweight materials reducing the overall weight by 10% even with an increase in overall size.
Engine choices were reduced down to just 3 from a massive catalog of choices on the previous version to include a 2 liter turbocharged inline-4 and a 4 liter twin-turbocharged V8.
