The TV version of the Top Gear show may never be as fun as it once was but TG’s YouTube channel is still going strong and uploading interesting videos.

In its latest episode, the British media is teasing a duel between the Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4² and the Ford Raptor. You can see both vehicles in action in a short two-minute video.

The German machine offers a V8 engine with 422 PS (310 kW) and 22-inch wheels with 325/55 off-road tires and a slightly modified body with carbon fiber attachments. The producer says the SUV feels more like a “sports car rather than a cross-country vehicle”, despite having a 1000mm fording depth and 52° approach and 54° departure angles.

The Raptor on the other hand has a 6.2-liter V8 engine with 417 PS (306 kW) and 588 Nm (434 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel drive system.
