10. 2013 Mercedes-Benz G65
Day three of our Dream Car Garages series is brought to you by the wishful mind of Road Test Editor Richard Cazeau. First on his list, the Mercedes G65.
Why an SUV? Because it all about the “just in case” factor of: hauling in-laws, moving a buddy to a new apartment or a jaunt to Lake Tahoe. And since Land Rovers and Range Rovers are so played-out by Hollywood celebs, why not opt for a classic?
