We are not the only ones believing that the G-Class is in a class of its own, as no less than 63,089 readers of the specialized “Off Road” magazine have voted on the iconic model as being the “Off-road Vehicle of the Year 2014” for the eleventh year in a row.
In G 63 AMG 6x6 guise, the car also came on top in the “Off-road Tuning” category, showing that the bonkers six-wheeler is not only demanding but also getting tons of respect.
Speaking of respect, the even older-than-the-G-Wagen “Unimog” nameplate is also on everyone's mind when talking about the best multi-purpose off-road vehicle you can find out there, with the latest generation of the model series being voted the “Corss-country Vehicle of the Year” for the tenth time in a row in the “special-purpose vehicles” category.
The 63,089 voters in Off Road magazine's annual awards had to select from no less than 58 manufacturers and a staggering 127 different off-road models, so don't think that Mercedes-Benz had it easy. It only goes as further proof that both the G-Class and the Unimog are still put on a pedestal by off-road aficionados out there.
