First Drive: Mercedes-Benz G 550 and AMG G 63

Vehicle makeovers are usually progressive, and so when I get in an "all-new" model, I generally find whatever's been done to make it a bit better. But with Mercedes-Benz's G-Class, that went out the window. I admit -- I hated the old one. It was cramped, noisy, and was all over the road. So I went into the all-new one not sure of what I'd find. And you know what? There are so many positive changes, the damn thing's won me over. Find out more in my review at AutoTrader.     [Author: Jil McIntosh]
