20,000 G-Wagen’s built in 2016

37 years after it was introduced, the Mercedes Benz G-Wagen has hit a production record with 20,000 being built in 2016 having rolled off the production line in Graz, Austria this year, breaking all previous records.

The 20,000th 2016 G-Wagen is pictured here, a bright white AMG G63, complete with a 5.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 motor.


More than quarter of a million G-Wagens have been built by contractor Magna Steyr since the model was introduced in 1979. It was originally intended as a rough-and-ready military vehicle, but soon proved extremely popular with civilians, as well. It even turned out to be a handy race car, winning the Dakar Rally in 1983.
