Mercedes Benz AMG G-Class
Starting MSRPs: Base G-Class $122,400; AMG G63 $141,400; AMG G65 $220,400
The “hip to be square” crowd will love the Mercedes G-Class. It’s big, brawny and boxy. Although its slab sides and tall stance evoke authority rather than sporty, AMG — Mercedes Benz’ performance division — ensures that the deeper you bury your right foot, the broader the smile on your face. The G63 sports a 5.5-liter bi-turbo V8 rated at 563 horsepower. The G65 brings a 6.0-liter bi-turbo V12 and 621 horsepower to the party. Concerns about quality? Engines are handcrafted and signed by their builders.
