Other off roaders
 
Have Y'all seen the new Mercedes g wagon? Is it anything for jeepers to worry about being beat by it? I would assume no just because it's a merc.. It looks pretty capable.. What are yalls thoughts?

80 grand, locking front , rear, and center (?) Diffs. Id say it can compete , plus its got a v8, and its Mercedes 3rd most powerful engine , I'm going off of a top gear I saw awhile back , so don't quote me lol .

Went wheeling one time with a 91 chevy K5 blazer, an 03 Ford f150, a Hummer H1, a late 90's grand cherokee, and a G-wagon... It didn't do to bad, but the owner was real careful about getting any scratches on it...

Although fo $100k, I'm not supprised.

Also, I believe the center locking "diff" is also known as 4wd...

Would it be as good at rock crawling like a jeep? I guess if you lifted and put some new tires on it like an fj or jeep.. So would you say it's worth it's price? Or is the jeep better for an insanely lower price?

I just looked it up the jeep is the cheapest by far coming in 4 place for horsepower
First is the land rover
Second is the g wagon
Third the hummer
Fourth the jeep
Fifth is the fj
Prices go lowest to higher with the jeep in the lead by 5 grand
Jeep at 22k
Fj at 27k
Hummer at 31k
Land rover at 95k
The g wagon 107k
There were others but I feel like this covers all the none truck off roaders I found..

I think your prices are skewed a little bit, considering the G wagon has lockers and your looking at jeep pricing for a base 2 door sport... a 4 door rubi could be pushing $35k+

^ true , but arent those all base model prices?

Mattiday 04-13-2012 09:17 AM

Yeah just straight up out of the factory. I was pricing the wrangler as a 2 door sport.
I got the information from an app called car buzz. If I'm wrong about any of them please tell me.

I think the list is spot on. I don't think peepers took into account they are all base models
