LOL.

Not me. I just like BMW ride and refinement. I'm going with the X7. To me, the G Wagen looks big, boxy, and utilitarian. Fine for those who like that, but not what I'm looking for.

And yes, not true comparison.

This comparison like many other comparisons of "unequals by design" is entertaining.

X7: visiting the mall most of the time, wishing to go off the road
G-WAGEN: designed for off road, visiting the mall most of the time

I drove G-WAGEN many times. Mixed emotions about many factors particularly suspension behavior. It's just not tuned for 90% of daily driving conditions: too busy, and too firm with delayed reaction to road imperfections. G63 excels at emptying the wallet while transmitting more engine and road noises than one would want. G550 is a much better deal.

Other than the exterior retained for nostalgic reasons, the 2019 G-WAGEN models are practically new vehicles if compared to 2018 models.

X7 is still my choice but not because G-WAGEN exists as a competitive offering.

The X7 face is Horrific!
However, why people will pick an armoire on wheels like the G Klass is beyond my understanding. That is a 70's design, an ugly square box on wheels, narrow and tall with a harsh ride and the aerodynamics of a brick.
It makes me laugh to see people paying that price for that cart.
Kudos to Mercedes for taking their money!

1. "Baller" wouldn't not get g550 or family size x7
2. You can compare the GL instead as 3 row vs 3 row

GLS would a better comparison

G wagon is far superior, different animal all together as well as much more expensive

Ballers don't drive X7's. The X7 is a car for people who refuse to drive a minivan.

Essentially, it's for Jim Gaffigan.

No kids, 2 dogs... coming from a Range Rover. I disagree, but the comment was funny!

She is a lot of luxury and tech for the price. That is why I bought one.

G wagon looks like filing cabinet on the outside and dash looks like a snow board with a few cans as air vents.

I don't know how they sell so many

Obviously a bad comparison but it could have been worse if they picked the previous G-Wagon which was more off road capable than the current IFS version.

Somehow I think this video is more of a MB vs BMW to get the fan bases talking. Regardless of its motives, the G Wagon has always been the wealthy mans Wrangler. After being updated, the G Wagon’s interior design looks 10 years old and that’s its cachet. It’s a utilitarian vehicle modified to be more luxurious. I have seen what the G Wagon can do off road first hand and meh.... Get a Rubicon if you really want to go off road and save your money. At least you only spent $50k to look like you go off road even though most still won’t.
