Styling Expresses Proud Vehicle Heritage

Generation to generation, many vehicles carry over a few hints from the previous model cycle. For instance, the round taillights on the back of Corvette haven’t changed for years, but the rest of the car is unrecognizable.

The G, however, looks nearly identical to when it first hit the market in 1979, a testament to Mercedes-Benz engineering, and proud heritage.  The only other military vehicle that has attempted to match the G was the Hummer, and it eventually went soft too, and then died.

Even the Nissan Pathfinder turned into a mommy-ready crossover. Where the competition has faltered, the G-Class is still the Stalone of SUVs; big, bold and bad ass. It is unapologetic in a world that demands sleek design and fuel efficiency, and for that it deserves kudos.
