2017 Mercedes-Benz G-Class vs 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser
Full-size SUVs have a lot of capabilities as well as responsibilities. These vehicles are truly the jacks-of-all-trades when it comes to versatility, because their sizeable enough to fit more passengers comfortably, strong enough to pull a large amount of cargo and sleek enough to make maneuvering through rough road conditions a breeze. Two big names in the industry have full-size SUVs that deliver a whole new kind of power, but they’re made very differently. See how they stack up as we compare the 2017 Mercedes-Benz G-Class vs 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser.
While you may notice the pricing for these two is very different, that’s not without reason. While the Land Cruiser will save you money, you’ll be missing out on many of the features that the G-Class has. Greater performance, more room for passengers and of course a unique, slick design that looks like something from the ‘70s. See how else they compare in the chart below.

2017 G-Class Design
The timeless design of the 2017 G-Class is something to be reckoned with. Having originally been designed for the military in the 1970s and suggested by the Shah of Iran, this SUV was then offered to the general public a few years later. Its rugged shape and intelligently-crafted exterior was even considered tough enough for the Vatican to order a specially-made version to carry the pope around in (known as the “Popemobile”). The shape of the G-Class is made to maximize interior functionality and space while making the vehicle easy to maneuver. Polished chrome and stainless steel line the grille, headlamps, running boards and much more to give you added protection as well as a classy aesthetic glow.
