2017 Mercedes G-Class Looks More Like Wrangler Thanks To Similar Plans
There are some vehicles that are better off without having a modern sporty look as they stand out by offering vintage looks. Mostly these are vehicles that are meant to be taken off the road and the Land Rover Defender is among them.
People are hoping that the 2019 version of the Land Rover Defender sticks to this but if not then you can always choose the 2017 Mercedes G-Class, albeit with a much higher price tag.
The 2017 Mercedes G-Class has been seen in spy photos and even though the vehicle was hidden from view by wrapping we could still see that it is going to retain the boxy looks.
The Mercedes G-Class does offer looks that are deceiving though as it is following the Jeep Wrangler in that it is going to be more efficient with the fuel, despite it looking like it guzzles the gas.
We have also heard that the Mercedes G-Class is going to lost 900lbs and this is going to help with fuel economy, this is a surprise considering the fact that the vehicle does have more visual heft to it. The car maker had two main objectives and these were to keep the vintage look while offering better fuel efficiency.
The CEO of Wrangler JL said that they had similar focus as they wanted to keep the boxy look of the Wrangler and also improve the fuel efficiency by improving the aerodynamics.
