We have written about several Mercedes Gift from Omaze, our favorite eco-friendly sprinter camper van so far. This gift can top the list, as it is one of the most recognized, luxurious and capable vehicles made by Mercedes, G-Wagon.

The G63 seat five, powered by a twin-turbo four-liter V8 and produces 577 horsepower, not to mention 627 pound-feet of torque. Not to mention it’s gorgeous. We recently had a G63 and took it off-road to get it driven. Here is what we said:

“Loose surfaces and steep hills have not shown any resemblance to G, and we have never once rubbed its belly or those indefinitely located pipes into the result. We are concerned that we are not pushing G hard enough to learn something, which means we Some risks have to be taken so that the outing proves to be uninformed. But then we remembered one basic detail: it’s not just a G-Wagon; it’s an AMG. Slow and steady? Technical rock crawling? Pfft. And that brought us Holly Glenn.

“Near the entrance to Glenn Park, and frankly, it’s a dirt race track. This is not a fancy one. There is no start / finish line label, no accommodation for visitors or officials or anything of that nature. Rather, it’s just a one-way loop that’s enough for half a dozen dirt bikes or a few 4×4’s, which is enough to be “high-speed” compared to the technical hurdles and mountaineering elsewhere in the park, but not straight. Or before the next jump or blind corner you may not be able to stop the bleeding that is flat enough to allow you to create a ton of motion. There are some posted rules (no ATV, not going against the flow of traffic, this kind of thing) but nothing like saying “take your rich boy’s toy and turn around.” In other words, perfect.

“Everything in the G63’s dynamic select is set to ‘stupid’, we bombarded around the course when Wrangler viewers picked up the phone, probably hoping to capture a stupid rich man in their stupid-expensive SUV.” Sorry to disappoint, Neil Wrangler guy. The wind has caught and there is only one absolute explosion, the G 63 has to do That’s right That’s the decent thing to do, and it should end there.

“And when we say it’s good, people, it’s not. The G63 may look like a barebone for the price, but it has a simple, boxy shape and a technology-forward powertrain under the clicky-click door latches that can translate a few millimeter steering input and pedal travel into sound and flying sand vision. . The “trail” mode returns most of the nanny substantially, and the remaining protections remain dormant in the G’s electronic perimeter until you do something particularly ham-fisted.

“It simply came to our notice then. Despite carrying off-camber hills with almost full locks at the four corners, the huge rooster’s tails sent 20 feet into the air, dropping four wheels off the ground and churning so deeply in the loose sand that we felt it brush along the belly of the big G. Never reprimanded by any of the numerous and heavily involved systems. And when our work was done, we put 10 PSI on each tire, returned the Dynamic Select to its comfort setting, and set off for home with a new rattle, scream, or shimmy. As if nothing had happened. “
