2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class will be Redesigned! (Probably)

G-Class redesign

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is going to be all-new! After years of rumors and speculation, MBUSA showed an early example to dealers at a meeting recently. It is still over a year away and I have no details but it is already time to react! The photo above is a classic G55. It is a testament to the design that you can’t tell if it is a 1985, 1995 or 2015!

The redesign info important for two reasons:

1 – If you love the classic Gelandewagen you need to snap one up now! Usually in the last year before a redesign there is a short production cycle. They need to retool the factory and get ready! There will be limited vehicles and production will stop early. It looks to me like it may already be locked in through October. Don’t wait 6 months and struggle to find a color you like. I have light Ivory, designo Mystic Brown and Polar White in stock and ready to go!

2 – You should order the new one now! You don’t want to be 10th on the list if you know you are going to want a new G-Class! In my experience, G-Class owners are a loyal bunch who tend to get another G-Class every few years. Once they hear about the redesign they will get on a list! I do not know what engines we will get or how many will be sent to the US. Better safe than sorry!

The best info I have on the redesign right now is that it is longer, wider and less tall. It also has a significantly more luxurious interior and more space in the backseat. It will still look like G-Class but could be a little more S-Class on the inside. If that sounds like your kind of SUV then the 2019 G-Class might be calling your name! We won’t see any real pictures or specification for a few more months.

Now you know!

Mercedes-Benz in St. Lucia!

I recently took a vacation to the island of St. Lucia. While I was there I met a couple of Mercedes-Benz owners who showed me their babies. This island is hard on equipment! Keeping them running and in good condition is certainly a labor of love!

2017 Mercedes-Benz G550 4×4² at Atlanta Classic Cars!

Giant G-Wagen

The iconic G-Class now has a monstrous brother! The 4×4² stopped by today for a moment and I took all of the pictures! This beast is essentialy the famous G63 6×6 minus one axel. It is tall, looming, beefy, wide, and very cool.

G550 4×4²This particular vehicle is destined for another dealership but it was briefly unloaded and it is amazing! I saw it pull in and my first though was “Why is there no wheel on the back?” My second though was “it’s gigantic!” and then I realized that it was the first 4×4² that I had seen in real life!

Mercedes G550 4x4 axels

This vehicle uses the series production G-Class body, variable chassis and all-wheel drive powertrain including portal axels from the G63 6×6 to create a unique off roader with so much presence!  dinamicaThere are almost no choices to be made when ordering the 4×4². Paint color is the only variable. All of the interiors will be the Black Dinamica with white contrast stitching. Can you see the diamond quilting on the doors and seat inserts? The trim is carbon fiber both on the inside and outside of the vehicle. Most of the advertising has featured the Electric Beam yellow paint. This one opted for the more subdued designo Mystic White.

Mercedes G550 4x4 Mystic WhiteThe extra-wide stance is intimidating! Look at the extra carbon fiber width added to the fender flares to accommodate the giant wheels and tires! The front roof spoiler with lights is almost exactly the same as that of the G63 6×6. The sticker quoted fuel economy at 11 mpg for both city and highway.

Mercedes G550 4x4I can’t find the details for this vehicle on MBUSA.com but here is a link to the European specs. This vehicle is now available for sale in the US with a base price of $225,000. I am expecting my first unit in April/May.

Here is a video of the formerly big G550 being unloaded from under the enormous G550 4×4². Enjoy!

G550 and GLE450 Pictures by Joe Driggers!

A local photographer came by to take some pictures of our inventory. He made the dealership parking lot seem like a scouted location and the cars look pretty handsome too! Both of these beauties are available for sale, but now that they have a professional modeling portfolio the price may go up!

You can see more of his work on Instagram @joedphotog.

Mercedes-Benz G-Class in Paprika!

Ask and ye shall receive! I recently posted about the new colors available on the G-Wagen for 2015 and specifically mentioned wanting to see it in Paprika if it was ever built. Turns out there is already a Paprika G63 AMG in the world! It was exhibited at Pebble Beach and the designo Product Manager was nice enough to send me a picture! Enjoy!
