Two pictures of early forerunners of the G-Wagen by Mercedes.


Mercedes Geländewagen G5 - 1937

The Mercedes G5 (Gelandewagen 5) featuring full time 4WD, four wheel steering, three differential locks.


Mercedes Benz Geländewagen G4

Hitler's larger and more luxurious Mercedes Benz G4 Gelandewagen stuck in the mud in Poland!


In German "Gelände" means terrain or difficult terrain.

"Wagen" stands for wagon or vehicle.

Therefore Mercedes-Benz Gelaendewagen translates into English as all-terrain vehicle.
