For the diehard fans of the first generation G Class, the G Class Professional will continue to be made on the same assembly line in Austria. The retail price is a much lower price point, which leaves plenty of room for the cost of Federalization.

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.
the 99k Base is a placeholder. It means the car has 20k worth of options. The base msrp in us is around 124 meaning the sticker will be 144

my G550 delayed 7 months

My order is similar. I ordered it late April. The 3 orders my dealership prior to mine have already been built.

Just got a po number (not sure what it means) and build date 7/2/19 !!! How can that be? Any similar experiences?

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.

I am always so confused when owners or someone reviewing the G complains about the Steering. YES, it is not responsive and and NOT tight, but I do not see how one thinks the steering is punishing or hard to deal with! We have taken several Gs on LONG drives, across 4-5 states and the steering is comfortable, easy and predictable (once you understand a G).

Have all of your G's been AMG's? If so, that might explain things a bit. On my 2014 and 2016 G550's, I found the steering and overall handling to be rather cumbersome to deal with on a long drive. With my 2017 G63, long trips are much more pleasant.

Since 2002, we have had a G500, several G55, a 2016 G550 and many G63. The G500 and G550 had lighter steering, but not cumbersome. G63 feels the best. Turn radius sucks on ALL Gs, and your can move the steering wheel a lot left or right and the G will not move much (it looks kind of like I Love Lucy when they are pretending to be driving, LOL).

Any chance 7/2/19 is in German? That would mean it's build date is February 7th 2019?

AFAIK, the PO means the it has it allocated to the dealer (for inventory or customer order), which also means it's on MB's schedule to be built. The next milestone would be getting the VIN, which happens much closer to the build date.

From only a test drive experience, I would say the G's steering is very predictable, but it gets heavier the more it moves off center. For highway cruiser, I don't think it would be an issue at all, but for canyon carving (in a G???), I could see that it would be a pretty good arm work out. Personally, coming from sports cars, I've always preferred the heavier steering feel of hydraulic units, but the electric units are getting more dialed-in with time.

I LOVE the turning radius of my all wheel steering Q7. Itís unbelievable!
All cars should have it. And the G in particular.

A Cullinan? Wow, congrats. We saw it debuted here in L.A., a "secret" RR event. Stunning and HUGE! Between 2012 and 2015 our company had some amazing years.....and we had 3 new Phantoms and 2 new Ghosts. So gorgeous, and they all spent about as much time in the Service Dept. as they did in our garage or driving them :-O

BUT, that being said....I would buy another Rolls! Nothing makes you feel like a Rolls and nothing else on the road looks like a Rolls. I have always said....the Porsche 911, The G-Class and a Rolls-Royce; no one will ever not know what they are. Iconic and timeless.

Lol i disagree. I agree with the rolls, g and 911. The old range are way cooler looking. The new one are just too mainstream. Nothing wrong with them, I love them and will probably order another one. They're just not as iconic anymore imo.

Agreed. I had a 2014 Range Rover that nobody ever commented on (other than saying something like "nice Explorer").

My last Range Rover (had 4 before) was a Full Size Supercharged 2014. Amazing car, but my family called it the $100,000 Ford Explorer :-O Even some good friends used to say....Nice Explorer. I do hate how they look SO similar from several angles

There are 2 posting for 2019 G63 on bay for potential deliveries, prices are 175 and 183k. Listed option prices but not MSRP. I called the dealer who placed the post to verify, he is charging 20k over MSRP, he said that some dealers are asking 5ok over.
Base on this and prices of listed option price, I think that the MSRP for the G 63 should be around 145-147k
my dealer could not confirm the price but I have my VIN # on my car at port

What's interesting is the CARB/EPA has approved the G550 but not the G63. I assume the G63 should be approved soon.

Not sure what the confusion would be, it's a known fact that the steering in all pre-2019 Gwagons are non-responsive, and certainly not predicitible. It has to do with the steering set up. It's not that it's physically hard or it is binding, so no, it's not uncomfortable, it's the fact that it does not allow good road feedback. I guess if you drive mid 60s vehicles and/or you don't have much experience with more luxury brands then the differences would not be as pronounced, but it's definitely there, and that's not my opinion, it's a known and documented issue (which is why MB changed it on the new model). You combine that lack of steering feedback with the roll properties of the pre-2019 Gwags, and as you drive, you mentally get worn out as that "oddity" constantly pings you.

Still a killer looking vehicle, which is why we will end up with two of them
