The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is an icon of the automotive world. First introduced in 1978, it has had very few modification over the decades. That changed in 2019 with the introduction of the new body style. For the first time we could enjoy all of the modern amenities of Mercedes-Benz, along with the classic lines of the G-Wagen. Welcome to the modern era!
The most common color for a G-Class in real life is Black. At any given moment if you search for pre-owned G500’s or G550’s you’ll find a swarm of black vehicles with a few in white or silver and the very rare specimen in a color. Mercedes must have been in the mood to change this because the G-Class currently has the most possible available exterior paints, even without choosing a custom paint through the PA1 Special Order Program.
An aside on that terminology:
- designo – rare, custom designed paints or upholsteries available from Mercedes on many models.
- manufaktur: colors from historical Mercedes-Benz models
- PA1: Special Order System through Mercedes-Benz that allows you to choose any paint or upholstery possible. This can take some time and does have associated costs.
I have never seen a G-Class in a color that didn’t look good…and I have seen South Seas Blue in person! The Rubellite Red G63 above was a special order that the owner took a chance on, without seeing it in person. Paired with the Macchiato interior, it looks elegant and impressive!
So, if you are already the type of person who likes to stand out in a crowd with a G-Class, you might also be the person who would like it to be a special color! Get in touch and I can do my best to describe colors, show you comparable colors or just encourage you to take a chance on a color that neither of us have ever seen!
