Watch the Mercedes G550 Tackle a 100% Grade: Video

At the Northwest Outdoor Activity Vehicle Awards back in May, we got to drive a bunch of SUVs and crossovers, back to back, on both a road course, and a rugged off-road section. During the testing, we got a chance to drive the Mercedes G550, and to say we were impressed with its off-road chops would be a massive understatement. Here’s what we had to say about our time in the beefy Benz: Simply put, this baby is an absolute unit off road. Sure, when you’re behind the wheel of the…
