Mercedes goes on and on about how capable and indestructible the G-Class is off-road, but how much of a beating can a latest-gen model take?
One would assume that without proper mods, the modernized SUV wouldn’t make it on a die-hard off-road course, but the G-Class is one tough cookie. And we’re not talking about a dry press track for demonstration purposes only, but a proper route designed to kneel any type of machine.
Thanks to this video, captured somewhere in the Ukraine (in the Carpathian Mountains), we can make an idea just how unbreakable the G-Class is. During an off-roading event, a G63 AMG owner went to town in his Mercedes, putting it through the equivalent of automotive hell.
Equipped only with off-road tires and a winch, the man didn’t let anything stop him. Even when the organizers thought he reached the end of the road with the G-Class, he heroically kept going – even if that meant crashing the car into the ground, as if he was trying to move the earth itself out of the car’s way.
So, the answer to the first question is NOTHING!
