Trucks and SUVs of Geneva 2017

The Geneva Motor Show always overflows with supercars and concept cars, but it tends to have plenty for truck lovers, too. And so long as Mercedes keeps building massive G-Class off-roaders on portal axles, Geneva seems destined to host some of the most interesting 4x4 debuts of the year. This year's collection of trucks and SUVs includes a chauffeured landaulet version of Mercedes' portal axled G-Class, the Dakar winner, an all-new Range Rover, the Mitsubishi Eclipse resurrected as a crossover and plenty more.

Since we last looked in on the all-new Peugeot 3008 DKR, it took home first place at Dakar 2017, with driver Stéphane Peterhansel, aka "Mr. Dakar," grabbing his 13th Dakar victory. In fact, Team Peugeot Total and its fleet of 3008 DKRs swept the top three spots at the rally. Nothing looks better under display lights than a winner, so the Dakar-winning 3008 DKR #300 is a shoe-in for "best truck/off-roader in Geneva."

The 3008 DKR was born with a very clear purpose, and it quickly fulfilled that purpose. The Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet, on the other hand, seems like it will spend its days searching for a purpose. Very possibly the weirdest 4x4 we've seen from a major manufacturer, the newest G-Class combines elements of the Maybach 62 Landaulet and the G500 4x42 , rolling out as a super-burly, high-riding 4x4 that can shuttle two VIP types in open-air, limousine-style comfort. Perhaps it'll find use in the luxury vacation industry, giving the well-to-do a comfy vantage point on safaris or glacier tours.

Those that prefer the regular G500 4x42 over the fancy Maybach version might be more interested in Brabus' upgrade program, also debuted in Geneva. The Brabus 550 Adventure 4x42 adds 126 horsepower by way of a more potent twin-turbocharger setup, bringing total V8 output up to 542 bhp. An electronically controlled suspension lets drivers make adjustments with a swipe or two of the touch control panel, and accessories like the added lighting, winch and body protection help the truck live up to the "adventure" in its name.

Always interesting... The list of ugly cars from China and Mercedes just keeps groving !

The Jeep Wrangler Black Hawk concept by Chelsea Truck Company is cosmetically useless with its bulging body panels and color-matching winches bumper. The aftermarket support for the Wrangler over-shadows this useless concept. This, just as with all the other concepts at the Geneva Motor Show, demonstrates how the manufacturers are not in tune with their customers.

I really want to pronounce that Nissan Qashqai as "Cash-Cow".
