    Well the G wagen has been around longer than the Defender and even the 110 - like LR their heritage goes back a long way - to the early 50s.

    Notice the ADR fail on exhaust tail-pipe location . ADR states exhaust must exit rear of opening windows / doors. ..... Try getting that past an engineer.

    It seems that Euro Certification gives exemption to ADR's , its also how the Iveco 4x4 is allowed on the roads as theres is no way known the brakes comply with ADR's .

    Thanks all, yes the G Professional Cab Chassis has been at dealers for months now.

    ...But the Wagon version is nowhere to be seen! Despite all the launch hoohaa. It's the Wagon I want to see. Theoretically it's the biggest competitor to next Defender.

    Oh I see, I thought 'wagon' was a typo!

    G Professional 350D

    In Europe the new G Professional wagon is a 350D model, with upgraded dash, more creature comforts than the 300D supposedly in Australia. ...NB: still not one G Professional Wagon sighted in Australia, despite being released here in September last year!

    For tough guys: the G 350 d Professional. - Mercedes-Benz

    Was watching a G-Wagon review recently on YouTube and they mentioned that the new 2018 model has been slightly lengthened and widened. Biggest change for a long time.

    Is the Professional still a front live axle?

    Looking at the up market '18 versions they've gone wishbone front at the least.
