You can guarantee that MBFS will play with the program numbers to move existing inventory. I wouldn't be surprised to see lease rates at near 60% residual and a low interest rate for an '18 or '19 and then low 50's w/ a higher rate for the new model.

They appear to be real, traces of carbon all over them. I wonder why they decided to go with fake exhaust tips for the non-AMG models? Maybe so there's less exhaust hitting you on the legs when you at the back of the vehicle loading or unloading.

You can clearly see exhaust carbon has been coming through the AMG-style dual exhaust of this tester. They're real!

Well, here we are in the waiting game again. I would think we should be getting some journalists' road test reviews soon? Then the US Dealer Order Guide?

I was kidding when I asked that question - as turko says, I can't imagine AMG going along with the deception of fake exhaust outlets (maybe in the AMG 53 which isn't a full-fledged AMG?).

It would nice to get our hands on the DOG for sure. I wonder if the two-tone leather seating in the GLE450 shown in Paris is a standard option or a designo option?

Thanks Greg, I'm guessing the GLE450 in France had the Magma Grey / Black interior,

I believe this is the combo on the Paris car you refer to? It's listed as "Deep White/Black."



Magma Grey is darker; this is Espresso Brown/Magma Grey:

Sorry, I didn't see "Deep White / Black" listed anywhere in the chart you posted. The "Magma Grey / Black" is listed as a designo Nappa leather. Where is the post for Canadian DOG?

Likewise. Been keeping on eye out for these, but no luck yet.

So the only solid color interior is black? I am not sure I'm a fan of these dual tone combinations, would've liked more solid color options.

Post #624 by 2012MLBlue has the "Product Profile," not yet an official Order Guide, I believe. That Deep White combo was not listed on it (that came from the Daimler Global Media Site), but neither are 22" wheels. Different countries will offer different standard equipment, packages and options. US may have other solid color options.

Plus it’s more practical for everyday use. I wouldn’t trust myself in the 63 with all that motor. They must be big in Las Vegas though. The dealer had 12 63’s and 22 63S models the other day.

So if I get the GLE450 with AMG Line package is that a Very Poor man's AMG? It will probably push $80k as I option it so I guess it's all relative.

I think the AMG purist look at packages below the 63 level as AMG wannabes since they don't come with the AMG suspension, brakes, and a true AMG hand-built engine. But I get why MB offers those packages. Some buyers (myself included) do not need or want a hand-made, high performance V8 but prefer the appearance of the AMG lines. I personally don't feel the AMG seats are comfortable due to those seat-back bolsters which cannot be adjusted or relaxed. Take the current GLS AMG 63 for example, I love the look and the available wheels but those seats are not for me, nor is the loud exhaust (which my son just loves). That's why ice cream comes in many different flavors.

Thankfully our salesman was able to discount the crap out of it being a 2018 so we were able to lease an AMG. Something we wouldn't normally be able to afford to lease. If it was the beginning of the year/mid year, AMG SUV would be untouchable for us. So we are very fortunate to be able to lease one. The MY167 450 with AMG Line package is what we will get once this lease is over and the premium on the new MY would have eased up. I'll tell you though. We have tasted the forbidden fruit (AMG). Trust me when I say we will do our darndest to try to get into a W167 AMG. If not, no worries. W167 450 is a beautiful powerful and well equipped SUV.
Long live poor man's AMG!!!! LOL.

Great for you! I have my M4 for my DD so that gives me my performance thrills. The GLE will be my wife’s DD and it is purely my utility/trip vehicle. I have no problem with the performance of even our old ‘12 350 with a measily 302 hp and 7 speed. The new 450 should be a nice step up. I look forward to the MBUX and eActive suspension.

You're giving me hope! Even though our '19 GLS 450 is due to be built on 11/2, my dealer has an '18 GLS 550 on the lot since mid-summer. While we are excited for our vehicle, I'm secretly hoping to score a deal on that GLS 550 if he really wants to move it. Then later when the hype has dies down, get into an X167 for the next one.
