2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG! [Head 2 Head Episode 46]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman heads to Graz, Austria, the home of one of the world’s toughest off roaders - the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen.

The last time a G63 appeared on Head 2 Head, it beat out the all-new and quite excellent Range Rover Supercharged. This time, however, the G63 faces even stiffer competition — another G63. Of course, this particular G has an extra axle, because it’s the $500,000+ G63 AMG 6x6!

Costing roughly twice as much as the awesome twin-turbo V-12 powered G65, the 6x6 is the ultimate expression of the Gelandewagen… on paper. But is it actually any good? Is the 6x6 as awesome as it looks, or is the regular G-Wagen just too well thought out? And why is the 6-wheeled truck always jumping in the air like that? Watch and find out!

Humvee Shootout! Banks Power Armored Humvee vs. Stock M1116 HMMWV! [Head 2 Head Episode 43]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman pits an American icon against itself. Since 1984 AM General’s Humvee has served as the U.S. Military’s primary multipurpose workhorse. However, after adding nearly three tons of armor plating, the already slow, ill handling beast gets slower and clumsier.

One solution is to replace it with a new truck, but that would cost us a fortune. The other comes from Banks Engineering, which adds more sophisticated turbocharging as well as a revised, active suspension. If the Humvee is going to go down in history as the truck version of the B-52, it needs upgrades similar to what Banks is selling. That said, the Banks Humvee does cost a good deal more than the base Humvee. However, it’s a much cheaper alternative to something like an MRAP or the Oshkosh L-ATV. But is it that much better than the regular production Humvee? Watch and find out!
