Let’s face it: You’ve gotten lazy. Life’s been good, but you’re prone to its digital amenities and modern conveniences. Your home theatre’s setup rivals the local multiplex. You’ve watched so many food shows you could open a restaurant. Your couples time—your family time—aspires to adventure but settles for sedation. Even on vacation, you’re more likely to be seen poolside than exploring the local flavour, tackling the trails, taming the ocean. You’ve got all the will but none of the way.
And then there’s your car. The ultimate convenience. You’ve earned it. You’ve worked hard. Your automobiles are chosen from the luxury side of dealers’ row. But this time, you’ve stepped up a level, to the G-Class, Mercedes-Benz’s makeover of their iconic off-road offering. But what are you going to use it for? To survey urban landscapes? To cruise the cosmopolis, the envy of all? There’s no better SUV on the market to do it, of course, but why not do more, ask more of an SUV like no other? Why not test the limits of the Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC technology that will take you to 100 km/h before the kids can mutter, “Are we there yet?”
Why not use the market’s preeminent SUV for what it was made for?
Life is about exploiting the time we have, and yet modern conveniences have tethered us to urbanity. We indulge in the perfect off-road vehicle, and yet never venture off the beaten path. But your kids still look longingly through the window at what might be. Your partner flips through old photos of ski trips, cottage weekends, and literally taking the road less traveled. Those days are still there for the taking, but maybe you’re missing the vehicle that will take you there, or are hesitant to profit from the utility of the one you already own.
But to do this, you need to leave the city. And this is where the majesty of the G-Class is discovered. The latest from Mercedes-Benz isn’t simply a status symbol or the ultimate vehicle to fill with camping gear, snowboards, kayaks, and outdoor equipment. It’s the promotion of a better way of life. This SUV will make you a healthier, more active person.
We all want better for ourselves, our families. That starts with healthy living and a vibrant lifestyle. Too often our spare time is spent taxiing from big box to big box, commitment to commitment, Saturday and Sunday disappearing quickly into the dread of Monday morning. But the mind craves adventure—it revels in tangible experiences. And while the destination in adventure is divine, we never arrive without enduring the wonder of the journey.
The find the best of the great outdoors, the absolute summit of what adventure lies beyond the cityscape, we must be able to access the most rugged of terrain, the most off of off-road, the quiet chaotic corners of the world where only the truly intrepid dare visit. But this takes more than simply piling the kids and your gear into the car and mapping a route. You need the confidence and assurance that your SUV will not only get you there, but get you there in comfort.
Our busy lifestyles require a guarantee that wherever we choose to go, we arrive safely and in style. There’s nothing worse than a ski trip undone by snowed over back roads, a camping trip tripped up by washed out trails, a remote locale unreached by the restriction of your mode of travel. True adventure asks that we remove variables of weather and environment, but keep the comforts of luxury, luxury that isn’t tempered by form, durability or endurance.
So why not rough it in opulence, ensuring you arrive in style to enjoy everything the destination—the adventure—has to offer? The G-Class is everything you’ve come to expect from a luxury automobile with the added bravado of the best an SUV has to offer. From now on, you’ll no longer be asked if you’re there yet. There will be wherever you are, wherever you want, whenever you want. And when you get there, you’ll be able to delight in the enduring and revitalizing nature of adventure.
