Smaller states and dealers usually do not do this, since the "pool" for those that can afford a G-Class is smaller.

Unfortunately, states like CA, FL, TX, NY...dealers will ALL charge over MSRP if they can for a new and much anticipated model. We did it ONE time and ONE time only back in 2002 for the all new folding hardtop SL500. Never again. We have paid MSRP a few times over the years (and that stings), but usually we are able to negotiate a moderate, if not substantial discount!

a lot of small dealers do it also.. as they may only get a couple if any all... I did not mark up any 19 G550 or G63 orders...

I assume no info on the G63 base price yet. Anyone?
I am having the same struggle...550 or 63. I can get an allocation for either

My dealer had a G63 trainer car in this week and I went to go see it....its really nice, but loses the special military feel of the old one. The interior is really comfortable

Plan on keeping my 2018 G63 as its too special to let go (ive even considered buying another 2018 in lieu of 19)

The 2019 will be for my wife to replace our range rover....im sick of the gremlins in it

this is how I am considering pricing my 550
Base $124,500
Napa leather $4,190
AMG $3,470

That puts the truck at 134K.....for not much more Im thinking G63

or just get very basic 550

There is no reason to pay over MSRP for any vehicle in this day of internet shopping and easy comparative pricing. Trying to gouge a customer on an initial purchase just sets the wrong tone in the relationship as far as I am concerned. How can you trust that dealer during the ownership experience. I paid over MSRP once for a very limited production vehicle. Not MB. I never went back to the dealer again and never will. I would never recommend that dealer to anyone. You fight this gouging phenomenon by simply saying "no thank you". I can't imagine that the G Wagon would reach a demand level that will outstrip supply. Wait until the initial model introductory frenzy is over and we will be back to pricing as usual. Another point....don't judge the initial demand by the tone of this forum. We are, after all, enthusiasts for the G or we probably wouldn't be participating on this section of the forum. Be patient and prudent. Watch what happens to prices. The more interesting question might be what happens to the pricing on the existing models post MY 19 introduction. That will have an impact on all of us.

I know we are talking about pricing and availability here, but would anyone have a view on the different types of black paint available? I have an order in for a black magno (matt) but was thinking about changing to a more regular metallic black or dark grey - just not obsidian black, as I already have one in that color. Maybe something a bit lighter? Just not brownish though. Let me know if any of you guys ordered one of the blacks, please.

Magnetite black looks deep black but Obsidian black seems to have deeper shine with some green/bluish tint. Platinum black seems to be very popular G63 color and looks good.

my issue with mango paints is that they're not easily repairable after minor scratch etc due to different clear coat. It is more resistant but when there're scratches it'd need to be repainted vs buffed...

Allocations

my dealer says he has 2x g550 and 1x 63 that are available allocations for November delivery.

i was thinking about taking the 63 allocation as my car come in September g550.

I want the 63 so bad but if I get it Iíll have nothing to look forward to that why I ordered a g550, sometimes I feel like wanting one is better than having one.

anyways do all dealers have allocations open or is this dealer just an outlier? I thought there was a waiting list out there??

any input guys ?

It really depends on the dealer, I believe. Some have long lists - so they say - and others have barely sold any yet.

What I found, however, is that even the ones with larger pre-orders have a few G63 that are 'available' within a couple of months or so. A couple of them have suggested a substantial premium, if I wanted those...

So yes, there is a lot of interest and there have been some delays. The demand will highly likely level out soon and wait times will be back to normal within a few months.

Are you getting a G63 instead? I was told the price increase will be more substantial than on the G550.

HA 8%. Cash it is. Wouldn't be right for a mercedes. They do alot of leases. It wasn't even that bad for when their W222 s first came out and that was super hyped.

There is a major problem at the port(s) and it is not only effecting G Wagons. The backlog on certifications is causing delivery problems with other MB models as well. Dealers are losing sales to other makes because of it. Not a good image for MBUSA regardless of the cause.

MB has the new 2019 W463 for test-drives at the Quail for Monterey Car Week

I loved the Colorado beige one. The wait for test drive was too long so I didn't get to drive it.

If you're in Monterey this weekend make sure you stop by and get a test drive, they have other amazing cars to look at (classic 300SLs to the new AMG GT and AMG concept F1 car) while you wait and wine and beer to celebrate afterwards.

Nice pics, but man to me that Colorado Beige-yellow-sand-mustard colour is dreadful!!! YUCK!!!
Blue colour is awesome, but WTF Mercedes?! Awful wheels on BOTH. So not good on a G-Class.

Both wheels look like they were taken off a C300 or SLK250!!!!

Also, the placement of the gas tank filler lid on the "old" G is 1000% better. 2019 is strange and too prominent!! Yuck again. Lol
