The Mercedes-Benz G63 6x6 Is Totally Sold Out

The last of the mighty Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6s are being built this month, and if your order isn't in already you're just gonna have to wait 'til they start showing up on eBay.

Tuned Toyota Supra Is No Match For A G-Wagen In This Weird Tug-Of-War

This MKIV Toyota Supra certainly has enough stickers to be fast. But no matter how hard it kicks and screams and smokes its tires, the mighty G-Wagen just seems to casually haul it home like a bratty little kid. » 12/15/14 11:31am 12/15/14 11:31am

Lift Fail: Watch A $100,000 Mercedes G-Wagen Fall From The Sky

It's hard to tell if this Mercedes G-Class was too heavy for the shop lift, or some goombah working the levers just didn't set the hydraulic device correctly. I don't even like the AMG G-Wagen and this service center fail is hard to watch. » 12/05/14 10:37am 12/05/14 10:37am

How You Can Hate The Mercedes G63 And Love The Cadillac Escalade

Until Bentley turns their 4x4 concept into reality, the Cadillac Escalade and Mercedes G63 are the two flashiest SUVs you can have.

Concept renders of a round-edged, road-tire wearing version of the venerable Mercedes Gelandewagen have started circulating, and while it might be a speculative verscheißern it's got me fearful that the brick-shaped Benz may soon be singing its swan song. » 3/31/14 2:20pm 3/31/14 2:20pm
