$300,000 LIME #GWAGEN DRIVEN! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 559 – Fireball heads to Silverstar Mercedes Benz of Thousand Oaks to drive a $300K #MercedesBenz 4X4X2 #GWagen!!

Please, a little help from WIKI… The Mercedes-Benz G-Class, sometimes called G-Wagen (short for Geländewagen, “cross country vehicle”), is a mid-size four-wheel drive luxury SUV manufactured by Magna Steyr (formerly Steyr-Daimler-Puch) in Austria and sold by Mercedes-Benz. In certain markets, it has been sold under the Puch name as Puch G. The G-wagen is characterized by its boxy styling and body-on-frame construction. It uses three fully locking differentials, one of the few vehicles to have such a feature. Despite the introduction of an intended replacement, the unibody SUV Mercedes-Benz GL-Class in 2006, the G-Class is still in production and is one of the longest produced Mercedes-Benz in Daimler’s history, with a span of 35 years. Only the Unimog surpasses it.[3]

The G-class was developed as a military vehicle from a suggestion by the Shah of Iran (at the time a significant Mercedes shareholder) to Mercedes[4] and offered as a civilian version in 1979. In this role it is sometimes referred to as the “Wolf” and LAPV Enok. The Peugeot P4 is a variant made under license, with a Peugeot engine and different parts.

It was not available from Mercedes-Benz in the United States until 2002, although this was preceded by a grey-market where even basic models commanded six-figure prices in the 1990s. It was launched in 2002 as the Mercedes-Benz G500 with a V-8 gas engine and achieved 3114 sales that year.[5] This eventually tapered down to some sub-1000 sales years, however, in the 2010s sales began to increase again surpassing 3000 in 2014 and in 2015 it sold more than in its launch year, with 3616 sold that year.[5] In 2016 this increased to 3950 in the United States.[6][7] Canada saw a similar increase, which, although is a smaller market saw sales increase from 127 in 2012 to over 400 in 2016.
