$123,600 | U.S. News Overall Score: 7.2/10

We understand the Mercedes-Benz G-Class is beloved by many aspiring luxury SUV owners for its square-edged design and go-anywhere capabilities. But honestly, if you’re in the market for an SUV with a six-digit price, you might want to take a G-Class for a test drive before handing over that pile of cash.

Power is not the problem – the G-Class offers anywhere from 416 to 563 horsepower, depending on which trim level and V8 engine you choose. The issues are that the interior is cramped, the cargo space is tiny, the handling is sub-par, and fuel economy is barely this side of a leaking oil tanker. Yes, it looks cool and was originally designed for military duty. So was a Sherman tank. You wouldn’t want to take the kids to school in one of those, would you?
