The 2020 Mercedes-Benz G550 is touted as both luxurious and one of the world’s best off-road machines. Does it live up to the hype on either end? Oh yes.

We took the MB G550 for a drive on our local trails and the fancy truck performed flawlessly. And it should with a starting price of $130,000 (and as-tested at $151,000). Is the G-Class the king of the hill when it comes to luxury off-road vehicles? Absolutely.

[Disclaimer: Mercedes-Benz tossed us the keys to the 2020 G550 and included a tank of fuel.]
