Mercedes G350 v Land Rover Defender v Jeep Wrangler - TUG OF WAR


Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
It’s time for an almighty tug of war!
First up we’ve got the best of British, the new Land Rover Defender, going up against the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon! On the face of it, you may think the Jeep Wrangler has the advantage, given its 2-litre turbo petrol can put down 270hp - more than the Defender’s 2-litre turbo, which can only produce 240hp.
However, that’s just about where the Wrangler’s advantages seem to end, as the Defender can produce 430Nm (compared to the Wrangler’s 400Nm), it’s heavier (weighing 2.4 tonnes compared to the Wrangler’s 2 tonnes) and it’s jam-packed full of off-roading tech!
However, that’s not all! Once these two have gone head-to-head, the Mercedes G350d will roll up to take on the winner! With a 2.9-litre straight-six diesel which can produce 286hp & 600Nm, this is one Mercedes which can easily take on either of these competitors!
All we know is - you don’t want to miss this!

    Let it be known land rover that your new defender has never, and I mean never, won any of these tests.. Here on carwow and other channels.. The only place it's won was on stats and against the old defender(which really should have been a low bar to clear). In the real world it's about OK which is a shame considering how much tech is in ita nd how much supposed effort they put in it.. I just goes to show that they approached its development from a stats point of view and built it to meet them ignoring years of real world experience. The new defender should have been a budget G wagon and not the new discovery..

    The Discovery was pulled off center compared to the Jeep, the sideway force of the pull may have affected the test, not to mention the better mud tires on the Jeep

    Of course the Jeep won against the Defender. He never broke traction with his mud tyres. Arrogant not to stop pulling after passing the cone though in the Merc pull. Idiot not to use grass mode also.

    The new Defender is nothing more than on pathetic, overexpensive Disco with exposed screws. It can't play in the same league with the big boys. Anyway, brexiloons will buy it, so the JLR' Indian owners did the right think to built it.

    It would be interesting to see how a American jeep would do with this test especially the 3.0L Ecodiesel it has nearly the same amount of torque is a G wagon ( 599nm in metric world or the 4xe jeep that will have similar amount)............ Also the Jeep even fully loaded costs half what the G-wagon does

    Why didn't you use the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon with the turbo diesel v6 in this test? More closely matches the Mercedes - at least in specs. Certainly not in price. I'll stick with the Rubicon - by far the best value @ $60k.

    If you've ever done any off roading then you'll know it's all about the tyres. Plus Landovers come with road tyres because on 99% if them it's all they ever need. Very few are used in anger.

    More of these tug-o-jokes ... I mean it's getting annoying that carwow literally suggests that this actually means something, perhaps concluding that this has anything to do with REAL WORLD offroad ability or that it's sort of a comparison, and fooling hundreds of thousands of people in to believing it ... ?? Why? At least label this as utterly irrelevant, purely for poop and laughter, so that people don't actually consider this as something other than a joke.

    1. MT tires vs. AT tires. MTs win on deep wet turf - doesn't matter what they're on. 2. Configurable Terrain Response mode on the Defender? Maybe not equipped, but can manually lock center and rear diffs on the Defender if it had it so optioned. 3. Grass/Gravel/Snow mode locks the rear diff and limits slip on the center diff. Not used. Why?? 4. GWagen had three lockers and a massive torque advantage over the Heep.
