1. 2017 Mercedes-Benz G550 4×4 Squared (17.24 inches)
The towering Mercedes-Benz G550 4×42. The undisputed king of non-pickup ground clearance vehicles. Topping this list is the most expensive, ridiculous, rarest, and certainly the most awesome vehicle for conquering, well, everything. With a stratospheric 17.24 inches of ground clearance, the 4×4 Squared gives its driver to truly go wherever they damn well please, in the ultimate [4-wheeled, lest we forget the ludicrous 6×6] version of the G-class. This leviathan is powered by a 416-hp, 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8.
With just 300 in existence at $225,000 each, it’s unlikely you or I will experience this level of awesomeness. Still, the numbers don’t lie – this is the greatest vehicle by which to sail over anything nature hurls your way.
