    noone1:

    Oh no... Gross. WTF is with that center console and why does a $100K G-Class get the manual dash that even the C-class will have replaced?!



     

    Very hideously ugly! 

    The full digital cockpit will be available as an extra!

    Smiley I wouldn't be too sure about it.

    My Mercedes dealer again asked me if I don't want to buy the G63 he offered me. He said it could be a good investment. Smiley (he could be right but I don't "invest" in cars, sorry).

    The Mercedes dealer In Munich sold this year more than 100 G, mostly as G63.

    Every new week you can see a new G63 and all of them are sold in a heartbeat. So I don't know where's the problem for your dealer to sell this carSmiley

    I do not think he has a problem selling this car, he just offered it to me (March 2018 delivery, according to him one of the last). Maybe he gets more "bonus" for selling the G63 than the GLC? Smiley Also, don't forget that Munich is a bit bigger than my town. Smiley

    Bad move! It looks so wrong!


    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    I don't think CF will make a difference. It's just an ugly design and doesn't look modern at all.

    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    But G class isn’t meant to look modern.

    WAY:

    But G class isn’t meant to look modern. 

    Thats not the issue at hand here...it looks hideous. 

    The current G class looks exactly how it is supposed to look and a modernized version shouldn't look like an ugly homage but a modernized classic.

    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    So do you think the new one will actually have proper steering and ride? Does that take away part of the charm of a G to make it drive like a GLS? Then the question become, why even have a G class?

    Very good question. I don't know. Smiley

    Btw: Saw another two(!) G63 AMG yesterday in my (relatively small) town in the same color (but different license plates). That same color my dealer's testcar is and the same color I got offered from my dealer on a new car, designo platinum magno (or so...). Maybe they only produce cars in this color anymore? Smiley Smiley

    No, they still produce cars in every color you would like to have. To see the difference:
    This is designo platinum magno

    And this is designo Monza grey magno (my wifes car)

    At least the dash is now fully digital. Imagine those fake aluminium parts in CF instead. Don’t think it will look too bad. 


    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    how about the exterior? is it going to be very similar to classic G or reshaped?

    Agreed. That silver stuff just looks bad on this car.

    Mercedes is going fully digital with their dashes, we postponed delivery of our C63 S AMG Convertible because it gets a digital dash after July 2018 (and a facelift...).

    GLC 63 S AMG has been delayed for spring 2018 and rumors indicate that because of that, Mercedes plans to offer this car with the new digital dash for the GLC already (GLC is expected to get digital dash later 2018). Rumors only though, hasn't been confirmed yet (GLC).
