Those wheels are highly functional. They’ll function like paddles while you’re in deep muck.

I also found a U.S. spec video:

P.S. I’d take off the brush guard, but keep the wheels. I’m tired of the five spokers.

Thanks for the pics and video. I like the wheels but the brush guard needs to go. I have the 19" black five spokes on my black G and am looking for a little more contrast on my next one. Can't wait to experience the new driving dynamic and the upgraded interior. Turning in my '16 in March at lease end. Guess I will wait in line until the MY 19 delivery process gets into full swing.

The 2019 G is much "softer" and some might say feminine! The 2018 and older (aka real G, LOL) was/is rough-ish and the last, true hardcore and old school Mercedes. Mercedes can no longer afford to build such a car, and the new one will be much easier to produce and will appeal to a MUCH wider audience.

Of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion. That said, some might say the diminutive proportions of the old G make it look effeminate (in a automotive sense) when compared to the bigger bolder intimidating Ď19 G, but that might only be the MUCH wider audience talking. (Sorry, that was really just too easy of a target.)

Given the readily available discounts on the new Ď18ís still in inventory, it would have been cheaper and much easier for me to buy one of those back in August, but driving the Ď18 G left me unimpressed. I wanted something more. It might not seem fair for me to judge the old G so harshly, but as the owner of a 13 ton International with a Cummins diesel, I can say I know exactly how a real truck is built, feels, and drives. Air brakes are a must have item on a real truck. Heck, my Allison transmission weighs a ton on itís own, so everything else that I drive is wimpy in comparison. Given not everyone can enjoy the true hardcore truck experience so readily, I can see how the outgoing G can be a lightweight substitute for some people. I admit new G will provide even less of that truckiness, but I for one, have no idea why anyone would want unnecessary truckiness in their daily driver. It should be about embracing the Gís much needed improvements and not rejecting them in the name of nostalgia. Besides, if I wanted an old school G experience, I would import a 25 year old diesel as a weekend car.

It seems as though quite a few have been judging the new model sight unseen. I haven't seen one in person yet, just photos. My initial impression based on the photos is mostly positive; though I've got a few reservations such as the bullbar on the G63.

The changes for the MY '19 G being discussed remind me of Porsche's change to water-cooled engines for the 911. This was a hot and much debated subject "back in the day". In the end, the changes and other advances with the 911 resulted in a much improved automobile and widened the customer base. Those of us who are nostalgic about the "old" cars continue to create a demand for the air cooled models. As a result, the prices for the older cars has escalated beyond belief. Now I don't think the price increases will apply to older G's but there is little doubt that older models will be sought after and used prices will remain firm. I haven't seen the new G in person but like most on this forum I have looked at numerous videos and still shots for a long time. I am looking forward to my first drive and am on my dealer's list. Just as an aside; I have researched the values of MY '16 G's going through the auctions in the Northeast region. The values of similar units to mine are bringing about $10K more than the purchase option at the end of my lease. Dealer retail asking prices are an additional $10K. This is a pretty unique financial scenario in my experience, even with Porsche, Mercedes and BMW. I think this is a testimony to demand for our G's going forward.

I am not putting down the new 2019 G, and I think there is a lot of good, if not amazing going on for it. While not a fan of the Jeep LED driving lights, I am so happy Mercedes finally gave the new G LED headlights.

I think the new taillamp design pays homage and respects the old (real, LOL) G. The new rear lights looks great, and you can tell Mercedes spent a lot of time and thought!!

While I hate the dual digital screens inside, I think the one screen with the new analog gauges looks great!!! The new and improved location of the Climate Controls looks really good too. It does appear they look like they were taken from the 2006-2013 S-Class (but since we had a 2008 S550, we always loved the way the buttons felt and worked)

I think the 19 G will do REALLY well. Honestly, if I knew there would not have been such a wait and preorder demand, I most likely would have waited and gotten a 19 G550, but when I drove and saw my 2018 G63, I just knew it was for me!

Right now production cycle for G is for April 2019 and everything is sold out and it will be like that for at least all 2019 production. In 2020 will start see more in stock available G.

Last month MB sold 201 units of 2018 G so the demand is still there. Old G prices I don't think will go down even with people seeing more discounts on 2018 because G-class owners love their car and will not give up for a low trade in and the ones are coming off lease are going for more than residual as some pointed here.

My G was slotted for dealer inventory, but I caught it early enough to reconfigure it to my specs.

I got an email from my dealership saying that the build date for the G550 I ordered end of April (anticipated build date of around October 2018) has been pushed back to July 2019 (2nd of July 2019 to be precise)!!! I have been provided with a po# (whatever that is).
Any similar situations?

Yeah Iím supposed to get my edition 1 and the cars at port, but waiting for these stupid epaís and logistics. Could be stuck there for months or could be sooner, apparently theyíre all going to be released at the same time. But that knowing how it usually goes it takes for ever. What I donít understand is that these engines are already out on the road ie E class GTR etc so Iím left baffled

Congratulation for the Edition 1. I think they will build just 300 of those.

My experience was quite different from yours. I committed to my build mid-July and my G was been built on schedule last week. Does your build have any of the delayed production options/colors?

I wonder what has happened. I was told mine was going to be next a few weeks ago. I was their 4th and the 3 before mine had a build date already.
Suddenly they say not October/November build but July 2019!
Yes, I ordered black magno paint, which was going to be available starting September. I canít imagine itís that. 7 months delay?

Lots of opinions and info on these last few posts. Here's what I got going on:

1. My dealer (Seattle) e-mail me my vin number today, woot woot.
2. I ordered mine on March 26, 2018
3. Here's my spec:

4. My dealer says they can not "delete" the brush guard due to highway safety regulations (but I bet they know someone who can
5. The main thing I am excited about on the new 19 G is the steering. With the old 1970s hydraulic recirculating-ball steering system, I always felt like I was going to drive off the road in sharp curves, and the thing just beat me up on long drives. Mercedes switched to a modern, variable-ratio rack-and-pinion steering system with adaptive electric power assist on the new 19 Gs so that is going to be sweet.
6. We are keeping our 2015 G550, it will live in Idaho as a grocery grabber only, no more long drives for the beast.

This is a very nicely equipped unit. Will probably go with the same options when I order mine. The price is where I thought we would be on the MY '19. I also have the same concerns about the steering. Looking forward to driving the new truck to experience the difference. We usually use the G for local runs but have taken it on one long trip and the steering does wear on you after a while. The trade off is that the higher ride height provides excellent visibility and of course the the load capacity is a big plus. I wouldn't be concerned about removing the brush guard. Once these things hit the road stay tuned to this forum. There will be many who will engineer the removal as their first step after taking ownership. I know I will! Good luck with your new ride. Hope the wait isn't too long. Anxious to hear your feedback once you take delivery.

Sounds like a very nice setup. I chose the base interior, since Iím kind of rough on interiors and complex stitching patterns donít wear well for me. I would have gotten MB-TEX if I could. Although, I will miss not having the Dinamica headliner.

Iím not a fan of the brush guard either, but I may hold out to see if there is an actual functional brush guard in the aftermarket, otherwise it will be gone in due time. Itís the tires that I plan to change first. Iím thinking about the Yokohama Geolandar, which appears to offer a good combo of on/off road and snow performance.

P.S. My G is at the port awaiting for a ship assignment.
