The Range Rover and the Mercedes Benz G-Class were both built to tackle tough terrain and look good while doing it. So, which one is right for your travels around Florham Park and Franklin Lakes? To help drivers in Parsippany, Mendham, and Morristown, NJ, decide, the team at Land Rover Parsippany looks at what each one has to offer in this Range Rover vs. Mercedes Benz G-Class comparison.

Range Rover vs Mercedes Benz G-Class: Capability

The Range Rover features standard All Wheel Drive and runs on a versatile electronic air suspension. To provide extra traction on steep hills, it also includes a two-speed transfer box and an electronic center differential. It can also adapt to different driving conditions with Terrain Response®. This system includes selectable driving modes, such as:

  • Grass/Gravel/Snow
  • Mud and Ruts
  • Sand
  • Rock Crawl
  • Eco

While other modes adjust the drivetrain, Eco mode makes your SUV more efficient. Whether you're running errands or out off-roading, you won't have to worry about your fuel economy. The Range Rover can get up to an EPA-estimated 22 city/28 highway MPG.i

The Mercedes Benz G-Class is also designed to go anywhere. It includes All Wheel Drive, a transfer case, and selectable driving modes. However, you may not be able to stay out on the trail as long. With an EPA-estimated 13 city/17 highway MPG, you'll need to head back sooner to refuel.  

Range Rover vs Mercedes Benz G-Class: Towing & Cargo Room

The Range Rover is prepared to carry everything from a few bags to a big boat. Every engine is designed to haul heavy cargo. Whether you're interested in a 2.0L diesel engine or one of its supercharged 5.0L V8s, the Range Rover can tow up to 7,716 pounds.

The Mercedes Benz G-Class only offers two engines and neither one can tow as much as the Range Rover. With a towing capacity of only 7,000 pounds, you'll have to settle for a smaller trailer.

Both SUVs are ready to carry lots of bags inside, too. To make sure you've got enough space and have room to relax, the Range Rover is available with a Long Wheelbase. This extended SUV offers up to 75.6 cubic feet of cargo room.

Once again, the Mercedes isn't capable of carrying as much cargo. It doesn't offer an extra-long wheelbase, so it only features 68.6 cubic feet of cargo room.

Range Rover vs G-Class: Luxury Design

You'll find a high-end cabin and premium amenities inside both the Range Rover and the Mercedes Benz G-Class. Each SUV offers leather seats, power adjustable front seats, and heated seats in both rows. They both even offer a massage feature, so you can relax on long drives.

While they have a similar style inside, their exteriors offer a distinctly different first impression. For example, the Range Rover perfectly walks the line between rugged capability and sporty, modern luxury. It features an aerodynamic design that includes rounded edges, a rear roofline spoiler, and a sleek diagonal windshield.

On the other hand, the Mercedes G-Class has a more squared-off design with a straight windshield, a flat hood, and sharp right angles on every side.
