Mercedes-Benz consistently makes the worlds best sports cars and luxury automobiles, so why not off-road vehicles? The G-Class, introduced in 1979, is arguably one of the most iconic Mercedes-Benz vehicles to roll on four wheels. It was originally designed for off-road use only, and has since evolved to be a star both on and off the road. Now 35 years later, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is available in Scottsdale AZ and features some of the most advanced and luxurious automotive technology on the planet.
Over the last few decades, the G-Class has retained its classic exterior look, which has developed a loyal group of drivers who understand the potential of the G-Class and appreciate its Military heritage. For 2015, the G-Class is available in two trims. The G550 and the G63 AMG both have price tags in the six digit range, but they also offer incredible power, comfort, and luxury. With a powerful 5.5-liter V8 engine, the 2015 G-Class has the potential to produce 536 horsepower and tow up to 7,000 pounds.
The 2015 G-Class is one of the most capable off-road vehicles in the history of the automobile. It features unique off-road navigation functions and user-friendly differential lock switches for various off-road situations. The G550 has a power output of 382 horsepower and 391 lb-ft³ of torque.
Both trims for the 2015 G-Class utilize a 5.5-liter V8 Engine. For the AMG model, this engine recieves a biturbo setup that skyrockets the horsepower into the 500-horsepower range. Both engines can tow up to 7,000 pounds, and both offer incredible comfort with a 7-speed transmission. The G63 AMG engine even features ECO start-stop capabilities.
Although the G-Class is not designed for fuel efficiency, it is still a leader in its category. The base model G550 achieves an EPA-estimated rating of 12 miles per gallon in the city and 15 on the highway. With the omnipotent G63, the G-Class proudly boasts a similar rating of 12 miles per gallon in the city and 14 on the highway.

It also features a large touch screen that supports COMAND navigation and a DVD changer. The navigation system in the G-Class features off-road functions that are not offered on any other Mercedes-Benz vehicles, giving the G-Class an advantage over the new GLE or GLC SUVs.
