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
As has been stated many times before on this forum...stay away from these dealers who attempt to charge over MSRP. This tactic does not bode well for future dealings whether it be for service or purchasing of other vehicles. I'm glad the dealership name was posted. Run far and fast. Find a more reputable store.

I was first on the list for Mercedes Benz of Monterey who assured me that they are family owned business and never charge over MSRP, unlike other dealers. I asked them to look into getting Ed 1 if that expedites things. They got firm confirmation but now are asking $10-50K over MSRP. I asked them to refund my deposit and going with Fletcher Jones. I don’t care if I have to wait longer but I’m not going to encourage price gouging.

Fletcher Jones is not price gouging too? We have tried several times over the years to deal with them...Nasty, vile place! Salesperson to the Mgr. and General Mgr...slimey and rude. Our experiences

It might be useful to start a thread listing all the "price gouging" dealers. We have already been made aware of a few on this thread. This could be problematical because there are forum members who are dealership employees and they may be concerned about job security. Out of curiosity I asked my family owned dealership if they would would engage in price gouging. The response was an emfatic no. They went on to say that this practice reflects negatively on the industry as a whole. The bottom line is....refuse to participate. It may prolong your wait but its your hard earned money!!!!

The new G will be more technologically advanced, will lose it's archaic body gap panels, will have super comfy S-Class seats, Range Rover driving comfort, led headlamps, Knight Rider digital instruments....but as with any super advanced, loaded with tech Mercedes...the new G will NEVER be more reliable or have the feeling of being carved out of a single piece of granite like the 2018 and older Gs. I am not putting down the 2019 G, and will probably get one down the road...but the end of the W463 is the end of the last true, great and real Mercedes!!
I am glad I went with my 2018 G63 as well! I love the old school look. Not dissing the new machine. I may end up with a new model down the road, after the prices have dropped and any possible bugs are worked out of the new design!

I’m not sure what the fuss is all about.
I test drove a 2015 G63 over the weekend and thought I was driving a Mack truck. The steering is terrible and ride was rough. Not what I expected in a $100,000 vehicle. Maybe the 2019 version has changed all that. I thought the new interior really enhanced the G. But, between the delays and dealers not offering discounts, I’ve decided to order my 2019 Porsche Cayenne turbo. At least it is a comfortable ride that offers a sporty feel and you can get a discount. Now, there is one more G that you people have the opportunity to buy.

The steering isn't great and the 2019 will be much better. But it was an iconic design that some including myself love. Its kinda like having a Cirrus airplane and still having a love for a Piper J3 if that analogy works. Its part of what gives it the appeal and old school feel. Thats for some, but not for all! No disrespect!

Nothing at all wrong with going to the Porsche. Its all about what you like. And yes you have a valid point about getting one. The G has some exclusivity, but if you could care less, good for you! I am not honestly stuck in the G rut so to speak myself. When it comes time to trade, I may do just exactly as you are doing also. In fact I came from a Porsche to the G (:

I’ve seriously looked at 2019 cayenne turbo, but there are way too many in the area where I live, also their look is getting too generic. For the same reason, I looked at sport turismo turbo, as it’s different, but is not an suv. G wagon isn’t for everybody, it’s the solid door closing feel, the lock/unlock sound plus other quirks...it’s just different. Besides, my wife wanted it but I hated how older G’s drive so I passed on it and got Rangie ATB for her..now this one could be it so we are going to wait it out...

Yes, thats part of the love of the G. The doors, the way it handles, and oddities that make it so different. And you are right, the G isn't for everyone. I have always liked different and unique looking things. Thats my first love about it. There is no right or wrong answer! Only what pleases the person doing the driving is what is important!

As I mentioned before....nothing besides the G-Class, Rolls-Royce and the 911/Carrera are so individual and instantly recognizable and so unique! All are quirky and for sure not for everyone, and this is why I have had several of each!! Love oddities too!

You are about to get your G63 and they arenít telling you the official price? Thatís pushing this announcement close to the hilarious. Whatís their problem? Just say $150k and done. Easy.

MB does not increase the price suddenly for any model. Prices go up 3-4 k with every generation. I personally think that the starting price is going to be between 145-147k for G63. There is a big difference of price between European countries, you can configure G63 AMG in German and Austrian websites, Austria is more expensive which does not make sense because the car is made there. Many buyers of new MB models have to sign a consent of not exporting the car outside the US since the value for $ is much better in the USA than Europe. the base G63 will have so many standards that are considered options in Europe

I optioned mine to have about 9, almost 10k of option. Estimated MSRP is around probably right around mid 150s. HOWEVER, put me down for another no go here. My dealer is having a 20k markup. Will not buy into this nonsense.

I really can't understand how dealers can do this and expect customers to pay, if the price is close to 180-190k, Lamborghini URUS will be the best deal, the fastest SUV ever produced. Lambo is making mass production of this so not only prices will be at MSRP but also u may get a discount. the URUS will be released in late 2018 so I am really happy to see how MB dealers will face that

I think avg urus pricing is around 240k? I never looked into them. I might just pick up a bentayga instead of this bs

but no one is going to get just a 204k URUS. What's the expected discount? I can't believe 10%

These markups should help sustain the older G63 pricing for a bit. Maybe.

I do not think that you will see an initial discount on URUS but later will see less powerful and less expensive models. lambo is depending on Ururs more than any model. talk about mass production lambo

The URUS certainly looks like a nice vehicle with impressive performance numbers, but really isn't equivalent to the G class. If looking for a vehicle that actually has cargo capacity, the URUS doesn't look like it would come close. If you're looking for something that can go fast and handle well, it looks like a great choice though.

As far as charging above MSRP, it's a pretty common thing with low production / high demand items and the practice will continue until consumers stop participating in such practices. I can't really blame a dealer for charging what the market will take, to be honest. That said, I would NEVER pay above MSRP for a vehicle. That is unless I win one of those $300m lotteries.

Urus shares platform with Q7/Cayenne/bentayga and Tourag. Itís size, driving dynamics represent these SUVs..obviously with Lambo treatment design, suspension, engine etc.

Not all the dealers are asking over MSRP . I think the markups are more common in CA .

It is true, neither the URUS or Bentayga are equivalent to the G. The closest would be the Range. If this falls through, I'm going to order another range. I don't want this vehicle that badly to pay 20k. I can wait. A fully loaded atb long wheelbase range will be 160k and be super comfy.

My dealer told me that some dealers were wanting 40K in CA over sticker and elsewhere 20K in places. Don't kill the messenger, that just what I was told. I have a 2018 G63, in the mystic white color, with 750 miles on it. I will garage it in the winter, its my fun car so I like to baby it (: But when it comes time to trade, if the prices are still crazy. They can forget it. I will do a 180 and get a 10 second muscle car or another sports car. Makes no difference to me. New GTR will be out in a couple years, the new Viper will be out, possibly the mid engine Vett, Porsches Gt3! Lots of options if I am only summer driving (:
