I am sure the new RR is pretty capable off-road. I am sure it rides better than a G-class on the road. So for most folks it is more suited to their needs.
I have made many trips off-road in my G's. The coil sprung live axles with front and rear factory lockers make it nearly unstoppable. I like the more extreme trails, I enjoy the challenge. My 320 got a spring lift this year. It will be fully fortified by next spring with larger tires, custom bumpers, winch etc. I am pretty serious about the use of these trucks.
In the snow the new G500 should excell. It has full time four wheel drive plus a four wheel traction control system similar to the ML and an electronic stability program to prevent spins and loss of directional control. That along with its nearly 3-ton wieght make it a great snow machine. I am not sure how ind susp and LSD could improve on this.
We should also stay away from the Jeep thing. I agree with you. The best feature on a Jeep is its price, they are really just disposable toys IMO. Their fans however are much more rabid than even the Caddilac fans seen here.
I have some off-road pics of my G at http://homepage.mac.com/bwinterholm
