Scott Whittman Nov 20, 2012
If thats the best they got for 2025 then they don't deserve to make vehicles.
António Villas-Boas Nov 16, 2012
Did Chris Bangle move to Mercedes???
Josh Banning Nov 16, 2012
Sounds like a 5 year old has named it.
William Forgham Nov 16, 2012
@Colby Does one of those new technologies make car designer blind? Because this thing looks awful.
Jesse Andersen Nov 16, 2012
Looks like a Toyota FJ that got finished. Looks alright, won't get passed tho.
Colby Church Nov 16, 2012
However I understand that they are trying to foresee how future products might look, it's just that it will be inaccurate no matter how well the engineers perform with future design speculation.
Colby Church Nov 16, 2012
have that 80's look to them even if they are more futuristic looking. They look nothing like today's cars. The technology doesn't exist to build a "future" product because we don't know what styles and features will be prominent then.
Colby Church Nov 16, 2012
It can't be accurate considering we are limited to retain technologies and designs today, and much more will be available by 2025, changing every aspect of the automobile. It's kind of like those 80's movies that feature future cars. They still
Anthony Grasso Nov 21, 2012
I think it looks great! Remember this a G wagon so they are supposed be rugged
Tem Porary Nov 20, 2012
I'm a progressive guy, but that is absolutely ridiculous and freaking horrible. Looks like a Toyota. The G class works because it's like the B52 bomber. They change little except the drivetrain and interior the form holdsup because it work. I have bought 8 new mercedes cars in 8 years. If this is real it's a terrible harbinger of things to come and I'm seriously leaving the brand.
Tom Heth Nov 20, 2012
Wow, they're bringing back the Yugo !
Jacob Greenleaf Nov 19, 2012
I don't think Mercedes will go through with this at all,doesn't fit their styling whatsoever at all and if they do we will lose one of the most gorgeous cars ever produced
Ben Schmidtchen Nov 19, 2012
Hahahaha lol wat a heKtiK car!!!
Daniel Carroll Nov 18, 2012
Chelsea tractor meets tango and cash
Alex Pritsert Nov 18, 2012
Looks more Toyota style. Maybe the next Prado?
Mike Bakhsheshi Nov 17, 2012
FJ on roids...

Haha Brandon. I'm just saying. He's a pimp and a good player but I just don't like him
Bill Estep Jr Nov 17, 2012
I thought the top holes were lights for offroad that would be cool
Author Norman R. Colson Nov 16, 2012
It'll probably kill anything in its way
Jesse Cornelius Nov 16, 2012
Hot wheels! Beat that!
António Villas-Boas Nov 16, 2012
I wonder what those 4 vents on top of the windscreen are... Probably 1 air intake, 1 exhaust, 1 for the in-dash barbecue and 1 speaker to ask people to stop throwing vegetables at your car as you try to convince them this car looks good.
Connor Scanlon Nov 16, 2012
Stupid but cool. I'd rather just buy a land rover.
Judah Lindvall Nov 16, 2012
Definitely would not want to see this in production (same with a lot of concepts) but could be nice after being tamed
Colton Adam Sherman Nov 16, 2012
Ugly
Jommel Marcella Nov 16, 2012
Hot wheels much... Looks like a toy.
Dave Larby Nov 16, 2012
That is a pretty good looking truck!!
Alex Medvedev Nov 16, 2012
I don't think they should ruin G class it's a great wagon this should of been named its own class O for offload or something
Alex Medvedev Nov 16, 2012
Woohoo that's a beast
Joseph Flieder Nov 16, 2012
@Noah… Yeah FJ ish
Shane Prasad Nov 16, 2012
Looks like a uglier toyota sequoia
Eric Resetar Nov 16, 2012
Keep the square. It's beautiful the way it is.
Alex Smith Nov 16, 2012
Probably the best futuristic concept I've ever seen. Most look like spaceships from Star Wars.
Adenis KalashNikov Ruci Nov 16, 2012
What would be great is if it still kept the square design. No matter how new it is.
Blaise Harned Nov 16, 2012
Exactly @Colby! Except I don't think it's that ugly, but I agree with everything else
Colby Church Nov 16, 2012
I'm doubtful that this is any indication or insight on what future cars will actually be like. They are just using wild speculation. In my opinion, this is not feasible future design language and styling, and it's also pretty ugly. Sorry Mercedes...
Guo-Sheng Huang Nov 16, 2012
Where are the wings? I thought cars should be flying in 2025. Looks great though.
Taylor Garry Nov 16, 2012
Give me the mud grapplers. Keep the rest
Liam Day Nov 16, 2012
This looks like a hot wheels
Stephen Cobbs Nov 16, 2012
Hahaha wow burn it.
Nick Schnee Nov 16, 2012
These roof intakes are pretty ugly, but apart from that, it looks MUCH better than most of the other "futuristic" concepts out there!
Stephen Ishard Nov 16, 2012
This is ugly as hell
Jose Carlos Nov 16, 2012
Put that thing in Production now. Make it a 2015 model. Good stuff!!
Boyd Boudreaux Nov 16, 2012
I think it's headed in a good direction looks awesome I would love to own and drive one now
Dillon Dixon Nov 16, 2012
It would look great if the windows were proportionate. Pretty awesome concept I think.
Mustafa Alshekhly Nov 16, 2012
Why all the future models look like toys
Borphan Limthong Nov 16, 2012
Needs to have a hybrid motor
Noah Gavurin Nov 16, 2012

Is that the next mars rover?

It looks like a mud toy to me
Dillon Magee Nov 17, 2012
Pretty cool
António Villas-Boas Nov 16, 2012
Looks better from the back, at least it's going away...
Abie Chao Nov 16, 2012
The Taillights look great!
Ethan Amo Nov 16, 2012
Yea, agreed, the g-wagon look is legendary..and even though this looks cool, they shouldn't call it a g-wagon
Alex Medvedev Nov 16, 2012

Back looks better than the front

@Church do you have to post a sermon on "speculation" every couple of pages?
Jack Howard Nov 16, 2012
No shit this is speculation. Calm down and stop taking this concept so seriously.
Colby Church Nov 16, 2012
guessing to it. Right now this is just blind speculation. It may be kind of neat to build on speculation, but along with speculation comes incredible innacuarcy in most instances...
Colby Church Nov 16, 2012
Go ahead and produce this in 2025 Mercedes, and let's see how many you sell when it's released. I'm guessing less than 3000. Future vehicles will look far better than this I'm sure. And that's because it will come naturally and there will be no
Douglas Mughogho Dec 15, 2012
Love it; Even from the top...
Adam Beiersdorfer Nov 16, 2012
The more I look at it, the more it really does appear to be a Hot Wheels toy...
Joseph Flieder Nov 16, 2012
No because in the future birds devolve into dinosaurs and you'll need this G Wagon to survive the nuclear fallout.
Sam Oglesby Nov 16, 2012
It's got a bird bath on the roof
Matthew Darius Razavian Nov 17, 2012
Anybody else notice that the headlamps are shaped like Gs?
Edgar Jauregui Nov 16, 2012
I really like it :)
Alex Medvedev Nov 16, 2012
So bad ass

The G headlights are cool!
Domingos Centeio Fernandes Nov 27, 2012
Lov it
Ryan Riley Nov 16, 2012
Will it me blend
Guo-Sheng Huang Nov 16, 2012
That's a cool paint job especially on a surface so smooth.
Boyd Boudreaux Nov 16, 2012
I'm in love
