As today my very accurate calculation shows a total number of 379 units of G63 ED1.

N- VPC-84 ( no other units outside VPC)

S- VPC 96+ 17 outside VPC

W- VPC 84 + 11 outside VPC

C- VPC 70 + 17 outside VPC

no this the sticker price for an edition 1 G63 and the fact that it is showing up in their inventory means that the G63 is being released from VPCs

Haa - means you're a funny guy - right ?

No - G63's have NOT been released from the VPC..

G63's will automatically show on MBUSA inventory search for that dealer when they have been checked into inventory at that dealer.

YES when you see a oddball showing up at this moment on AutoTrader or CarGuru's - that is a dealer who is fishing .... again G63's will automatically show on MBUSA inventory search for that dealer when they have been checked into inventory at that dealer.

That's the price for the E1, but confirmed with my dealer today, Nothing is released yet.

To be honest, it's getting to be too much, I heard it's not happening before Feb and most likely for Mar next year.
I mean battery issue it will be under warranty, how about the snow and the sea salt water?

Iím still convinced that thereís more that meets the eye. Firstly they wouldnít be pumping ads for the G63 on every social media platform if the car wasnít scheduled for release soon Iíd tell myself right? I mean the configuration for the updated G on Canadian websites was done on Nov 15 so Iím assuming a couple of people here have their car at port since August like myself for an ED1. I would hope the cars that are already here at at docks will be delivered first and hopefully that will be done in January. But think about it logically MB corporate wouldnít pump ads if they werenít aware or when launch was going to be, because all this advertising costs money, and they wouldnít spend money for nothing right? I just think the whole itís stuck at customs is BS and that MB didnít get their act together soon enough and now they have to send techs to update more software etc. I highly doubt anyone will get their cars before the end of the new year honestly.. holiday times are starting soon and dealerships will be closing on those days which will make a late December delivery almost un foreseeable

Please understand it is not "Mercedes holding back" - the delivery "delay" is the delay in securing US Federal approval for this new generation W163.

What those approval issues are - car manufacturer's under Federal mandate are not allowed to say anything.

The most recent "info" I have been told (and there is never anything on this by email) is released was targeted by mid-February.

Anyone with G63's at VPC can rest easy on condition/care .

Assuming this is a mechanical or programming update/change that will need to be done a VPC's - depending on what that exactly might be - with limited manpower it might take up to 4-5 weeks after Federal release to get all VPC units updated .. like I say no one that knows more simply cannot say anything.

of course I can understand that it requires feds approval on these ďW464ísĒ what Iím saying is, dealerships give false dates false estimates and false answers. In fact no one has an answer, and for some people including myself, when Iím told that my car is commencing VPC process and that itís the first car coming, and that itís January mid, and now that date changes to March, how can Mercedes Benz not be accountable for telling people the truth as you have it?

Correct 100%. Dealers were quick to take deposits and builds while throwing out BS delivery dates. "Oh you'll have it by year end for your tax needs we assure you..." Then you get to see everyone else worldwide recieve their cars months ago. As soon as the 19's are delivered they'll announce the '20 model. If one has waited this long why not get a '20.

It got to the point if you really want it, just wait ..
The ONLY issue that we will be getting 2019 model in 2019 when they will start announcing the 2020.

I wouldn't be concerned about the timing. I think, based on the history of the G, the redesigned MY '19 configuration will be around for some time before any substantive changes are introduced.

just curious, this white G63 seems to have the night package but bumper guard is not black, is this normal?
according to Canadian website, the guard is optional but in all USA social media photos all G63 had one, and was black with night package !

it could be that it was purchased after the delivery, usually, yes the guard is black, although Iím not sure as to if itís orderable in silver too (with night package applied). Iím in Canada, my edition 1 did not come with a bumper guard...... I have to buy it separately for 6k........ sucks that you canít ask to have carbon steering wheel and bullbar on the ed1

Guard

I did not get the guard as an option to start with when I ordered my car, does it mean that it is standard in the US market?
