I do agree with you regarding the Gís bad ingress/ egress, but thatís because of its lamo fixed running boards are so dang high off the ground, they are essentially very nearly 100% useless. You have to grab onto the steering wheel and hang on for dear life as you load yourself into the vehicle, unaided by an effective running board. Reminds me of the Ford Raptorís annoying fixed high mounted running boards. Same thing as Gís ingress/egress problem.
I think I have the ingress down now:
1. Right foot on the running board.
2. Left hand on top of the door frame.
3. Right hand on the vertical molding near the top of the wind shield.
4. Lift and place left foot behind right foot on running board.
5. Put right foot in foot well.
6. Rotate to the left.
7. Lower oneself into the seat.
8. Move the left leg into the foot well.
9. Pull the door close.
10. Open the door and pull door harder.

10 easy steps - no problem.

Still waiting for any legit basis for this statement. I have yet to see one anywhere else online (including the FORDRAPTORFORUM.COM) other than your posts on a G class forum. You previously scolded me to address this outside a Mercedes forum, but you brought it up again, so please enlighten us.

Ahhh! speedtwitch.com - the foremost authority on the automotive world. This article has been out and continuously updated for months and has no merit. Ain't saying it will never happen, but real Raptor guys and insiders are saying it's fake news.

2017 G63 (Obsidian Black / Titanium Grey Pearl designo Exclusive Leather Package)
So back to Mercedes for a minute...

Does anyone have an updated DOG for the 2019's with most of the MSRP pricing included? The latest I have has a revision date of 3/15/2018, so it's a bit out of date and has no pricing info. One thing I'm trying to do is figure out pricing of a G550 versus a G63 with configurations that are as similar as possible. With the previous model years, once a G550 was configured as close as possible to a G63, the price difference was relatively small, but only the G63 could get the superior diamond stitched seats (which I really wanted) and obviously had the more powerful engine (which I like, but don't really need). If a 2019+ G550 can be ordered with any interior options that are available on the G63 and the price difference is larger, I may go with a G550 this time around and save some money.

And the online configurer for the 2019 G550 does not have all the options (doesn't even have the full exterior paints) so its pretty much worthless.

I continue to be amazed how this upper tier car brands don't have there online configurers nailed down, especially with the way people shop these days. And it's not just Mercedes, even the higher brands, like Bentley and Rolls Rolls have ****ty configurers that don't work properly. That's just crazy for a $450,000 vehicle.

The website is for basic information. Ordering a car should be done at the dealer with a professional and very well informed SA.

I think any of the information out there right now about release dates is pure speculation. Iíve spent endless hours talking to dealers, sales managers, general managers as well as calling Mercedes USA directly.
Forr what itís worth, the general manager from the dealership that Iím working with called one of the coordinators at VPC Long Beach. Iíve since learned that these coordinators are referred to by a lot of dealers as ďgate keepersĒ. Idea is they call the shots. Anyway this woman in Long Beach replied to the general manager of the dealership that the cars were not going to be released before January 19, 2019. Seems like a ridiculous and arbitrary date but thatís what they were told. Not at all what I want to hear. Iím sure itís the same for you and everyone else waiting on one of these vehicles. Still holding out some hope that all that is BS and the cars show up on the Dealer lots by year end.

So if G63s aren't being released until late Jan 2019 and production keeps going, will there be a more substantial supply released at that date? I would like to think so, but knowing how MB USA is wanting to keep exclusivity a factor, I'm not so sure.

I'm no expert but going on what I've been told through many of these communications with dealers large and small, Mercedes has completed their 1st run of allocations. In other words if one does not have a vehicle in VPC allocated to them OR a guaranteed build in the upcoming few months from the original dealer allocations, its pure speculation on available future allocations for 2nd half of 2019. They simply have not been assigned to any dealers. Pretty pathetic.

I don't think exclusity is a priority for MB. The AMG brand ****** they are of current, it is almost guaranteed a "G63S" isn't far away and the '20 model year be announced 2nd quarter '19.

agree totally. All the ď43 AMGĒ stuff cheapens what a real AMG is. And I concur with the g63s, but Iím glad it will come out later. Prob would have opted for it now if available, but the car is already so expensive as is with options.

Eagerly waiting on my g63. Supposed to have the first one in Charlotte NC

"It's all ballbearing these days boyz, maybe you need a refresher course"
Good point, although the 2019 is an entirely different beast when it comes to options... On the 2018 and prior every technical or driving component was standard equipment, with the only options being Designo, colors and wheels and AMG Studio packages for the wild colors. A metric shyt ton of "base" G63s are out there because the standard equipment was so good and the standard 22 inch wheels are amongst the best MB has ever produced.

Now the option sheet is way more broken down so yeah a "stripper" G63 is 147, but most cars will leave the dealership most likely in the 160-190 range.

As an aside, I never buy anything new, and recently at work I had the opportunity to buy a 13 G63 with 65k miles we had taken in trade out in California for just 66,000.00 (we don't retail any G wagens). I'm kicking myself for not grabbing that one, but seeing that the overall MSRP for the vehicle hasn't shot up as much as expected maybe I'll get another chance since they come in every few months. We'll see.

2019 G63 Delivery

Received email from my Dealer earlier today. Stated that he received an official communication in written form from Mercedes on Friday stating that these vehicles were delayed for delivery until late January 2019 at the earliest. Likely delivery would be in February 2019.

The value and feelings of getting a 2019 car by the end of 2018 is way better than getting it in 2019, hope not to face more delays, some rumors are for April

what I absolutely dread is the amount of BS they have to say. Itís always one month next month, at least in the USA they say first quarter of 2019, meaning Jan most likely. In Canada? No official release they blame all their delays on certification and blame transport Canada on being slow to release the holds. But in my head if they know for a fact that this is only going to be released in January why the f not just tell the customer I had to reschedule 2 trips because I was going on the word of my dealership. Iím beyond frustrated and not because Iím obnoxious and want my car now, but because when people set your expectations for something and you plan your life accordingly and it changes it just sucks
