2014 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Exterior

Drivers that want an elite luxury SUV with the exterior design of an African safari jeep are now in luck with the 2014 Mercedes-Benz G-Class. The G-Class tops just about any SUV out there in terms of curb appeal, and there is no way that its unique, boxy styling won’t turn heads. Standard 18-inch alloy wheels and LED running lights only further bolster its commanding on-road presence.

2014 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Performance

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz G-Class offers two powertrain options. The base is a 5.5-liter V8 that pumps out 382 horsepower and 391 lb-ft of torque, and for even more power, Mercedes slaps a couple of turbochargers on it in the AMG trim to boost performance to 536 horsepower and 561 lb-ft of torque.
