Other than the screen, the interior looks a lot like the old one, although I’m sure they must have improved the build quality. They kept the passenger side handlebar; I’m not sure why it needs a carbon fiber trim though… Only the handle bar has carbon fiber, nowhere else…
Apparently they are getting rid of the solid front axle and splitting the lines between military and consumer models, which they haven’t done in the past. Similar to the Hummer H1 vs. H2 models, though I’d expect this to be a much better vehicle than the POS that was the H2.
I have test driven that thing…That thing is such a poser car it is not even funny…Its windows are straight as opposed to curved so its like sitting in a room with mirrors on all sides. You look to your left to change lanes and see a car that is on the right being reflected from the window…Also, it is very tight inside. Luggage space? Forget about it…Wasn’t for me…
I also test drove a Range Rover which is very very nice but its reliability really concerned me…Plus I wasn’t so fond of driving an Indian car so it was either a Yukon or a Land Cruiser.
Yeah to each his own. If I lived in some suburbs with a 3 car garage there might be a 1% chance of getting one just for the sake of poser effect (it’s actually cool to look at). But I live in nyc and need one car for family road trips - we clock well under 10k miles a year.
Speaking of nyc, anyone living in Westchester county? I am looking really hard at the place - 3 car garage, 1 acre lot, 6000 sq ft house etc…
G Class is like the luxury vehicle for wealthy hipsters. They just make things harder on themselves and unnecessarily complicated because they think it’s “ironic”. It’s still a “cool” car to own, because it implies that you are so wealthy that you can spend over $100k on such a frivolous vehicle (and you must have other expensive vehicles too, since this one is not suitable as a daily driver).
1 acre lot in Westchester is hacksaw. You need to upgrade to 2-3 acres. The lots are parceled like that apparently, because people used to have horses. You wouldn’t want your kids to grow up with less than 2-3 acres.
yeah well what can i say…i am hacksaw but i’ll take 1 acre…that is half a soccer field which is good enough for me. The more North I go in the county the bigger the land. Say in Purchase, 2-4 acre of land with 6000 sq ft is more the norm compared to say scarsdale.
well my kid should be fine with 1 acre he ain’t gonna be no track star haha.
