If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

Saw a new Gelandewagen

Just like this one. It feels over the top and not at all cool, in a way that the outgoing model just barely wasn’t. Like a Hummer or a 300C with too much aftermarket chrome. It feels like it’s trying too hard to be the smug, cool rich boy’s toy it’s supposed to be.

It’s my opinion that this is largely a shit design. It’s severely compromised in a way that works for an off-road vehicle, and it’s not an off-road vehicle. So maybe we can hope that this generation kills it? But, it’s an expensive, show-offy, fast Merc so...there’s always a market for that.
