I recommend renting one from Turo to get an extended test drive. I rented a 2015 from Hertz a while back that renewed my interested in G Wagen's and when I was more serious rented a 2017 from Sixt...

I did! Ordered a 2018 in late 2017 after it was obvious that 2018 is the last MY for the old school 463. MB canceled the order because of switchover to the new model and the dealer offered to convert...

I think this is the sub compact SUV that the GLA should have been all along - just my opinion.

The proportions remind me a bit of the Jeep Renegade!

If resale value is a consideration, why not look for the G350d Professional, especially the 1 of 463 china blue 2018 model that comes with the plaid seats. Pardon me trying to live vicariously...

Hah! I moved here from Boston and was always astonished that people can drive new cars without license plates and that I can walk in to a dealership and drive off with a car.

Yes those are 16" wheels on the 2018 G350d. The OE tires are 265/70/16s. The G300 and G280 Pro also came with similar looking wheels and so did the armored G500.

I can't confirm fitment but I...

The later G550s (and G350ds for that matter) came with the wider G63 fenders, I think starting model year 2016 when MB switched to the 4.0l bi turbo v8 for the G550

That emerald color is gorgeous!

You could always get the factory vinyl spare tire cover that's on the professional G's - but it may not fit the larger tire depending on how much larger you go.

I think it's just the G550 (G500 ROW) model, the part number that is backordered is 177-905-01-00 that suggests it's specific to the 4.0l v8

I find highway driving to be OK not great for long distances, not quite as comfortable as a GLS for sure but it's fun to drive and keeps you awake since it wanders left and right on the road :zoom:

I think my 2018 G500 does the same when slowing down in very certain circumstances. It's like a harsher than normal downshift (like someone downshifting a stick shift who isn't very good at it)...

I do think the 2018 may have just some extra insulation since it does feel more "damped" inside (thus feeling more solid I think) than the older G's I have driven. Ever since Deutsch100 pointed out...

To each their own I guess but think the G500 motor has more than sufficient power for this truck.

I agree with pdeacon on this. While not a powerhouse, the 2.8 M110 is a nice smooth motor. A rebuilt should be at factory ~150-160hp.
