2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class

When you’re looking for high-end luxury and off-road performance in the same package, there are only a few vehicles that fit the bill. The 2016 Land Rover Range Rover maintains exclusive levels of performance while offering surprisingly solid fuel economy numbers and unprecedented sophistication. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class has certainly earned its place in this elite segment, too, but the Land Rover model beats it out in several crucial areas. Take a closer look before making the drive from Naples or Marco Island to Land Rover Fort Myers.

Price

The 2016 Land Rover Range Rover will cost you less out of the gate.

  • 2016 Land Rover Range Rover: MSRP from $84,950
  • 2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class: MSRP from $119,900

Fuel Economy

The 2016 Land Rover Range Rover easily outclasses the 2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class when it comes to fuel economy. The newly available turbo-diesel 3.0L V6 engine available on this model gets an impressive EPA-estimated 29 mpg highway and 22 mpg city. The supercharged 3.0L V6 gets an EPA-estimated 23 mpg highway and 17 mpg city, and even the supercharged 5.0L V8 gets a respectable 19 mpg highway and 14 mpg city.

For the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, the twin-turbo 4.0L V8 base engine on this SUV gets a dismal 14 mpg highway and 13 mpg city, according to EPA estimates. Opting for the twin-turbo 5.5L V8 brings EPA estimates all the way down to 14 mpg highway and 12 mpg city, while the AMG 65 version of the 5.5L engine bottoms out at an EPA-estimated 13 mpg highway and 11 mpg city.

Off-Road Prowess

Both of these performance luxury SUVs deliver beastly off-road driving dynamics that put them in an elite class. No matter which SUV you pick, expect full-time four-wheel drive, the availability of a locking rear differential, and dynamic traction control systems.

However, the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover goes above and beyond with a standard Terrain Response system with five selectable drive modes, an available Terrain Response 2 system that automatically senses the terrain conditions and sets the systems accordingly, and an All-Terrain Progress Control system that utilizes and advanced version of Hill Descent Control to maintain pre-set speeds on even the roughest terrain.
