Battle of the Off Road SUV – Mercedes G Wagon VS Jeep Wrangler

Who Will Be Crowned King? Jeep Wrangler VS Mercedes Benz G Wagon

By Ashley Effinger

What Jeep is similar to the G- Class? What is the Mercedes Benz that looks like a Jeep Wrangler?

Driving a Mercedes G-Wagon AMG G63 is like dining at an exquisite Michelin star restaurant – you’ll be pampered and wowed.

Taking the wheel of a Jeep Wrangler ? Like grabbing some yummy fast food from your favorite spot; it may not score any stars, but there’s still something comforting about knowing what to expect!

In both cases, no one’s leaving hungry or unsatisfied.

It’s time for a royal rumble among two of the most beloved off-roaders out there – the Jeep Wrangler and Mercedes Benz G Wagon .

Both have dedicated fans with passion to match their boxy frames, but only one can come out victorious as king!

Who will it be?

Function or swagger – who do you think has what it takes to win this legendary battle between these two muscle SUVs?

Get ready folks – let’s find out who gets crowned king of boxy four wheel fun!

Which is better G-Wagon or a Jeep Wrangler?

The Jeep Wrangler is an icon of North American vehicular history . Respected by military personnel around the world for its superior off-roading capabilities, this much-loved 4×4 has been conquering rugged trails and saving damsels–er…soldiers –in distress around the world since before hip hop or rock n’ roll was invented!

Although it first rolled onto our roads in ’86 as a 1987 model, adventure seekers have been enjoying all that Jeeping glory since way back in the 1940s when the very first models made their debut – now that’s what we call staying power!

The Mercedes-Benz G Wagon has a long, rich history . First rolling off the assembly line in 1979, it served both civilian and military buyers with its no-nonsense design. But that was just phase one!

1989 saw this classic model get luxurious upgrades – think finely appointed wood trims, buttery leather seats and anti lock brakes – transforming “Tough” to “Extra Tough & Luxe”.

After two decades of dominance abroad these bad boys finally made their way over to US shores…in 2002 (but there were some who had early exclusive access to these gems).

Cruising through any terrain? No problem! The Jeep Wrangler is equipped with a robust 3.6-liter V-6 to take you where your wildest dreams dare go.

Tack on 285 horsepower and an eight-speed automatic transmission , plus two extra lockers for added agility – this isn’t just off-roading; it’s an unprecedented adventure!

When it comes to rumbling power, the Mercedes Benz G-Wagon AMG G63 is king of the off-road. The beefy V8 engine – a 4.0 liter twin turbo that’s only marginally bigger than its Wrangler counterpart – churns out an impressive 577 horsepower…not bad considering you’ll probably be crawling over rocks and boulders rather than racing!

Plus, with a nine speed automatic transmission and one extra locker compared to the Jeep hopefuls, this German powerhouse could just keep going all day long while conquering any landscape in sight.

Are G Wagons really good for off-roading?

Although the G Wagon may look tough and ready for any off-road challenge, it has an undeniably dapper interior that Mercedes owners have grown to love and expect.

With power adjustable steering columns and leather seating you’ll feel right at home cruising even when off road.

The three zone climate control is ideal for those blazing hot adventures; no need to sweat the details here- this vehicle is prepared for whatever rough turf life throws your way… even if you’re stuck in traffic!

Of course, this beast still offers serious strength in its design so if you get yourself into any sticky situations there’s nothing stopping your escape route…just don’t expect detachable doors anytime soon.

The Jeep Wrangler may not be as luxurious as the Mercedes Benz G Wagon, but it sure has its advantages. With removable carpet that’s resistant to all weather conditions and handy one-way floor drain valves for a quick hose down after an active day , what more could you want?

And if heat is your jam – no problemo! Just turn on the heated front seats and voila! Now let’s hit the road (or off-road) in style.

Functionality Observations

Driven to the limit, both vehicles have what it takes for unique conditions and terrain. However, if you’re looking for something that can really take on a bumpy road ahead of you – then consider taking the Wrangler with its extra inch off-roading clearance!

Not only is there more room between those bumps but thanks to its V-6 engine lessening weight by nearly 1400 pounds from their rival Mercedes G Wagon – your ride will truly be one smooth trip!

It may not have a direct link to functionality, but the cost comparison between these two vehicles could play an important role in its use.

The Jeep Wrangler is an economical option at $30,000- however taking a spin with the Mercedes G Wagon?

Hope you’re willing to pay over eight times that amount . Sure, it comes loaded with more bells and whistles than your standard pickup truck off-road vehicle – however when faced with that kind of price tag…will drivers take as many risks knowing their 4×4 investment is well into 6 figures?

The Crown Goes To…

Mercedes G Wagon VS Jeep Wrangler

The Jeep Wrangler is the undisputed ruler of off-roading. From tackling tricky terrain to hauling heavy loads, this rugged ride has been king of its domain for decades.

But when it comes to hitting smooth roads in style with a touch of luxury thrown in?

That’s where Mercedes Benz G Wagon steps into the spotlight – proving that sometimes two crowns can reign supreme. This beauty has even earning approval from the likes of Drake, Meek Mill, Lil Baby, Kiley Jenner and even Pope Francis himself!

It’s been an epic battle between two royal SUVs – the Mercedes G-Wagon and Jeep Wrangler. We’ve gone over each one to determine which SUV is crowned the sovereign king of off-roading!

I n the end it’s really up to you – do you prefer the luxurious, comfort and staying power of the Mercedes G-Wagon?

Or do you want something a bit more rustic, like a trusty Jeep Wrangler?

Both options take outdoor fun to different levels, so don’t choose based on what other people say; find what works for your individual lifestyle needs. If you’re not sure about making a choice yet, then we’d say to research some more – compare specs and test drive each vehicle until you find that gut feeling of “this is the one”.

Ultimately it’s time for YOU to decide who’s crowned king – so what vehicle is it? Let us know on Instagram, Facebook or TikTok when you make your decision. Until then, happy off-roading!
