This site provides information about one of the
strongest, most capable 4WD vehicles


Mercedes-Benz Geländewagen

also known as

Mercedes Gelaendewagen, Gelandewagon, G-Wagen, G-Wagon, G-Model,
G-Class, G-Klasse, Clase G etc., etc.

In German "Gelände" means terrain, also difficult terrain.

"Wagen" stands for wagon or vehicle.

So Mercedes-Benz Gelaendewagen

translates to Mercedes-Benz All Terrain Vehicle.

Officially Mercedes-Benz calls the G a "cross country vehicle"

With other words: Whatever Mother Nature could possibly throw at you -

the Mercedes Gelaendewagen is ready to deal with it.

No terrain will ever be too rough for this most competent 4WD.

First produced in 1979 the G-Wagen was pretty spartan (its military heritage was undeniable) - by 1990 it got stronger engines and more luxury refinement. Current G 500 and G 55 models are quite luxurious and very fast, but still outperform pretty much any other 4x4 when off-road.

The G 500 or G 55 is present in the garages of many heads of state and many celebreties - of course the pope rides in one as well.
