2020 Model Year changes?

Anyone know when 2020 specs should be released? Considering a G550 and was very surprised at some missing features that are found in lesser models like the E Class, such as Drive Pilot and Surround View Camera (I know the Surround View is available on the G63).

Do you guys think we’ll see any significant options changes for the MY2020 model? Thanks.

I have no benz intel but I will bet we will see very few if any changes given they are behind in cranking out the 19s.

I would not expect any noticeable changes. That would usually occur after 3-4 years.

Ok, thanks for the feedback. Kind of a bummer that these options are not available on this. Guess they dont need them to sell it?

2019 G63-when it’s here
360 camera is not possible, unless/until Benz redoes bull bar. The Big 2 Wants/Needs are: 1) keyfob proximity auto unlock, and 2) MBUX.

The G63 has the 360 camera option already, does that have a different bull bar?

G63 designo night black
I just got a g63 2019 (ordered Nov 2018, delivery March 2019). Well informed sources here say 2020 should get MBUX...

Canada : G550 has surround camera and there is no bull bar. G63 has 360 view camera and the lower bull bar which does not interfere. Bull bar IMO is useless unless for mounting winch

Any ideas on when the 2020 specs/order options will be released? Summer sometime?

That would be interesting, I would of assumed they would wait a few years for MBUX, a huge upgrade if they do. They could always add 360 camera forcing the bull bar delete?

Word on the street is MY2020 G63 will have a blower fitted to it, upping its beautiful AMG’s engine to 809BHP, sporting a similar low profile form factor of the Hellcat’s blower. However, the biggest development hurdle currently being struggled with is the rear bumper keeps getting torn off when the auto deploying anti-wheelie bar contacts the road surface. 0-60 times on current MY2020 G63 test mules are running about 2.4 seconds.

Interesting. Can you link to a source/article. Have not heard that anywhere.

The only benefit for me of the newer MBUX G is that Apple carplay or Android over Bluetooth. For me that's a huge game changer, I personally don't care for cars built in navigation and media controls. Give me wireless Apple carplay and that alone is worth the upgrade. I just wish it was currently an option. BMW has had it for years

Unless Airplay over BT works differently than wired, not a big fan. Its super annoying when using navigation and you switch to a different app not he phone that the navigation disappears off the car's display screen.

Fuhgettaboud ACPBT. Give us wireless iPhone charging in G63 MY2020, along with MBUX, and proximity keyfob auto lock/unlock, and if possible, add a low-profile blower!

I learned that starting October will be 2020 MY deliveries - so I’m assuming from Sep’19 they’re switching over from 2019 MY. Mine would still be 2019 (build date May’19 first week/decade). IMHO MBUX is a very annoying system with it initiating actions whenever ‘mercedes’ is said. I’d rather stay with tried and tested current infotainment system. I really hope though that MB fixes some early issues in current production like windshield cracks, air conditioning whistle and some of the failing engines!

there was a couple shots of the future 2020 S Class interior. I really hope the G never goes toward this Tesla like interior:
