The 2025 Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen’s New Monoblock Wheels Are Fantastic

Screenshot: Mercedes-Benz Ever since Mercedes-Benz brought back the monoblock wheel design with the 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe, my life has steadily improved.

Here’s How The G-Wagen’s Ancient French Cousin Ended Up On The Front Lines In Ukraine

While poking around on Instagram I found a picture of what looked like a drab green military-spec Mercedes-Benz G-Class that had been recently delivered to the forces fighting on the front lines of Ukraine.

Jeep Ends Wrangler 392 Production With $100,000 Final Edition

2020 was a weird time. Not because of Covid-19 or the election or anything that actually mattered. No, it was weird because Jeep decided the best thing to do was shove a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 under the hood of a Wrangler and put it on sale. I have thanked the automaker every day for making … Read more
