There are numerous G-Class offers on the secondary market of Indiana, and prices are different for the same year, but on average, a used model may cost you around $70,000. In fairness, there is practical sense in the old Mercedes-Benz SUV - with its axles and hard locks, it is quite effective off-road. And driving a 10-year-old car in the mud is not as pathetic as a new one.
The Land Cruiser 100, although quite old, is still perceived as a relevant and prestigious SUV - it is very similar to the new Land Cruiser, and the body shape is essentially the same.

The BMW X6 model is spectacular not only due to its Bavarian origin but also due to its coupe-like body. In the X6, the gangster reputation of the BMW brand and the bold youthful design of the coupe mix in an amazing way. More than ten years have passed since the appearance of the model, but its silhouette and design have not changed much - both fresh and old models are perceived as one stylish and powerful car. The only difference is that new X6s cost around $70,000, and used ones from the 2008 year of manufacture cost about $15,000. Such a used car definitely makes you look rich and prosperous on the Indiana roads.
