    MB to keep on building G-Class through 2015.

    "Thirty years is a long time in the automotive industry, but the more things change, the more they stay the same - in 1979, the second oil crisis was in full swing, Detroit was smack in the midst of its malaise-era madness and the Mercedes Benz G-Class was born.

    Despite its age, there are plans to see the G-Class continue on in its current guise for at least another six years. Austria’s independent vehicle manufacturer Magna Steyr has confirmed it will continue to build the vehicle until the end of 2015."

    It does have a following.... and they're more than decent competition for teh Range Rover....
    And it's a time honed design.

    And it remains mildly popular in the US. So.... why not?

    I think they're cool. Do used ones ever lose their value enough to actually buy and off-road like Land Rovers?
