Jurassic World to feature Mercedes-Benz models

I was a little too young to have watched the first movie in the Jurassic Park series, but by the time the second one rolled around I was old enough to retain a few things. Besides the big scary dinosaurs (at the beginning of widespread use of CGI, no less), one of the things that stood out was the Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Jurassic Park M-Class

Mercedes-Benz had tied up with the production house and provided them pre-production models of the M-Class for use in the movie, and these models were kitted out quite nicely for use on a dinosaur inhabited island. It was iconic as it was the first Mercedes-Benz SUV designed for an urban market in mind, and it looked downright cool being put through some blockbuster style abuse.

But this time around Mercedes-Benz has taken on a more active role in providing models for use on set. Everything from the classic G-wagon, to the industrial Unimog, and even the GLE crossover coupe model are to be featured in the movie.

The Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 AMG Coupé makes its film debut as the official car of Jurassic World operations manager Claire, played by Bryce Dallas Howard. When Claire must confront a crisis well beyond what she can handle alone, she takes the new Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé  and joins behavioral researcher Owen (Chris Pratt) on a mission in the lush jungle of Isla Nublar.

In addition we see Owen piloting the G-Class, the patriarch of all Mercedes-Benz SUVs. The film also features the Unimog, cast as a dinosaur ambulance, as well as a G 63 AMG 6×6 and various Sprinter models.


It’s certainly shaping up to be an interesting movie- whether you’re in it for the dinosaurs or for the (eventual) vehicular destruction.
