Watch the dramatic drag race between the new and old Jeep Wrangler, Mercedes-Benz G350d and Land Rover Defender.

Once again, “carwow” brought to the audience an interesting video of the SUVs famous for their off-road capabilities.

The Jeep Wrangler, Land Rover Defender, and Mercedes-Benz G-Class are not the usual cars in a drag race, and that makes the below video of the YouTube channel “carwow” even more appealing. Moreover, this video also converges a special factor such as the participation of both new and old Defender.

In terms of specifications, the Wrangler here comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that produces 272 hp and 400 Nm of peak torque, mated to an automatic transmission. 8 levels.

The new Defender has a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with 240 hp and 430 Nm of peak torque, combined with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the old Defender has a 2.2-liter turbocharged engine with just 122 hp and 360 Nm of peak torque, incorporating a modest 6-speed manual transmission.

Finally, the G350d version of the latest G-Class is equipped with a 2.9-liter turbocharged inline six that produces 286 hp and 600 Nm of peak torque, combined. a 9-speed automatic transmission.

The carwow team first ran the drag racing test from a stationary position, and the race was fascinating. The Mercedes started first, but the Jeep followed closely behind it. They had a match, and they went ΒΌ mile (over 400 meters) in about 15 seconds. Judging by the video, the G350d’s bumper seems to have hit the first finish line, but the lead distance Wrangler is only a few centimeters.

For the rolling race, things are a little more unpredictable. The Wrangler quickly took the lead and it looked like there was an easy victory. However, because of the maximum speed limit of 100 mph (161 km / h), the American SUV dropped from first place to third. In the end, the G-Class won and the new Defender finished second. Once again, the old Defender was “leisurely” towards the end.

Finally there is the brake test. This situation is a bit unfair because the Jeep is using tread tires for off-road driving, and they have reduced performance on the asphalt. Therefore, Wrangler needs the longest distance to fully stop, while the Defender stops at the shortest distance.
