To people who aren't hardcore motoring enthusiasts, the Mercedes G-Class is a line of vehicles that is best associated with super-wealthy urbanites, but the new Mercedes G350d Professional is a vehicle that is designed for getting stuff done off-road rather than simply looking pretty.

This particular Mercedes G-Class looks a lot like its predecessors from the outside, but a lot of the key build and performance factors are different. This particular vehicle is equipped with a 3-liter V6 turbo-diesel engine that is capable of pumping out as much as 240 horsepower as well as a more than handy 443 pound-feet of torque. A ground clearance of 9.65 inches and a tweaked suspension further burnishes this vehicle's off-road credentials.

Ultimately, the G350d Professional is a vehicle that is practical and reliable off the road.
