Land Rover Defender, Jeep Wrangler, and Mercedes G-Class are three luxury cars with high off-road capabilities. In this video, 3 models have the opportunity to compete.
Typically, the term drag racing brings to mind the image of a smoke-emitting tire, a screaming engine, and a silhouette of a car fading as it approaches the end of a straight line longer than 400 meters. You won’t see anything like that in the video below, but instead you’ll see a tense contest to see which car comes down the slowest hill. You’ll also see an interesting uphill race, a competition of suspension flexibility, and even a few heart-pounding situations for the rider.
More specifically, the new video from the YouTube channel “Carwow” opened with an intriguing three-sided drag off-road scene, followed by another downhill race. Nobody says drag racing has to be fast, and when competing names are Land Rover Defender, Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon, and Mercedes-Benz G-Class, speed is not the most important factor to bring. Victory.
In fact, this video is truly a comprehensive, intelligent off-road test between these three famous and highly capable vehicles. They were about the same size, and with capacities ranging from 240 hp on Land Rover to 272 hp in the Jeep and 286 hp on the Mercedes, the performance was similar. All three have good ground clearance and flexible suspension, but not all cars conquer the terrain equally.
We can see that immediately, when the Jeep loses its tail in its first race. All three off-road vehicles were set to low range, and acted parallel to each other until the middle of the hill when the Wrangler disappeared. It was not clear what happened, but only the G-Class and Defender reached the end in the end.
Of course, real off-road players aren’t interested in such things, so the next race could get more attention. All three cars are lined up again, but this time the goal is to be the last vehicle to cross the line at the bottom of the hill. In short, this is a battle of control with no brakes being used, and this time Jeep fans will be more than happy.
