It has been almost 20 years since the Mercedes-Benz ML-Class made a silver-screen debut in Jurassic Park 2 in 1997 — best known for spinning all four wheels in reverse while trying to pull a research trailer back from the edge of a cliff.

The Mercedes SUV product-placement offensive has continued in the X-Men films and a few other since then, but never with the same action-packed, memorable drama as the ML320 in Jurassic Park: The Lost World.

The fact of the matter is that the Mercedes SUVs in movies have delivered ROI far beyond a typical ad campaign.

Mercedes is doubling — no, tripling — down on the new Jurassic Park film: three at least six vehicles from the brand star in this summer blockbuster.

The new Mercedes-Benz GLE450 AMG Coupe is the most glamorous machine on Isla Nublar, but it is joined by its hardcore offroading brothers: the Galendewagen G-Class, the AMG G63 6×6 and the new flagship Unimog, the U5023. A few 4×4 Sprinter Vans even make a muddy on-screen debut with all four wheels scrambling to escape angry dinosaurs.

In fact, every road-legal truck in the film appears to be a Mercedes except for two military vehicles and a handful of ATV quad bikes. The Hummer H1 makes an appearance, as does the Textron Tiger, a Dodge Ram-based armored military troop transporter.

So what truck will make a daring escape up a river-bed with a T-rex on their trail?

We’d hop into the Unimog in a hot second, but the G63 6×6 would be a solid alternative!

We’re excited for the film — and to share these 20 on-set photos plus a behind-the-scenes video discussing Mercedes’ role in the movie.
