    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    Don't know if it's the angle, but those headlights look... meek? Somehow off. I guess the slightly rounded grille compared to the outgoing one still needs getting used to.

    Yep, not a fan either. This is actually another reason I switched from the GLC63 S to the E63 S: I badly wanted the Edition 1 but the edge of the black rims was painted in yellow (GLC). Not a fan. The E63 S Edition 1 has all black rims, no paint on the edges. Also, I'm not a fan of that stupid sticker but sales guy suggested I leave it on and if I don't like it, I can still remove it. Not sure it was the right decision though since removing a sticker from that matte metallic paint can be a challenge (according to a friend).

    the center plastic aluminum trim looks very cheap...mail

    the new hype with red circles around the wheels is tacky for such a car mail

    I will start looking at the old version, normal classic color and get a good deal indecision

    That interior is horrible, looks like something from an american Ford or Chevy pickup truck, and the outside doesn't have the rugged macho look of the older version...

    More ugly promo colors from Mercedes. Is there a new partnership with McLaren perhaps? They must be getting their bad press pictures and color ideas from someone...

    The additional width, while no doubt beneficial, makes it look like more a Jeep. If you told me that right picture was the next-gen Wrangler, I'd believe you.


    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    I actually like how it looks in the lower picture...

    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    Looking at pictures again, the standard model looks better than the AMG. AMG looks like a Jeep, the standard one does not.

    Only to enthusiasts. I heard from my cousin yesterday that someone traded in a G63 at their dealerships for a Nissan Armada because they wanted something softer and more comfortbale. And they low balled them like crazy on the trade, the costumer didn't care.

    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    In the UK they are producing an initial batch of G63s in July and following my early interest and deposit we have been offered a build slot. 

    This first production cannot be the Edition 1 model, cannot have Designo paint or Nappa interior and the winter pack is not available.

    So we have gone for black with night pack (ie blacked out bumpers and stuff) 22" black wheels with diamond cut rim edge, saddle brown and black interior and Drivers pack which apparently allows it to do 137mph angel

    That's great news ! Sounds like a pretty stealth, yet striking combination. Congrats, cant wait to see actual pictures of the car.  


    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    Saw some reviews lately. This vehicle begs for an EV powertrain. I want one, but won't until it's an EV.

    Lower center of gravity, way higher "mpg", vastly more torque, actual torque vectoring on a per wheel basis.

    IMHO, then it would lose it's point of being a dinosaur and start becoming a normal car. If I was the MB product manager, I'd EV the GL and leave the big G alone.

    G class as an EV? I would never buy one. Smiley

    In other words, it's what the 911 should be.


    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    I don’t get the G. My RRS is a better car in every aspect for 40% less money...

    Except looks IMO. That's all really. I for one don't subscribe to the "but we love the character of it's crappy old technology" thing. I want a super modern one that just looks like the old one.


    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    EV would suit the G perfectly in the northeast since it is the ultimate soccer mom car.


    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    It would suit it everywhere. There is literally no downside other than "but muh side exhaust noise".
