New Mercedes G-Class Is Already On The ‘Used’ Car Market

The all-new G-Class might have just been unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show, yet a German car dealership wants to sell you a brand new one for €133,600 ($163,476). That’s a hefty premium over the €107,040.50 ($130,977) starting price in its homeland, but hardly surprising as it’s common practice for new, sought-after models…

Since production has yet to commence, however, you won’t be getting delivery of the SUV just yet, but a build slot for an already commissioned example.

The seller’s homepage states that this is the G500, which is the only designation of the 2019 G-Class currently available. It uses a 4.0-liter V8 petrol engine that makes 422PS (416hp) and 610Nm (450lb-ft) of torque, returning a claimed 11.1 l/100 km (25 UK mpg / 21.2 US mpg) and emitting 263 g/km of CO2.

Finished in Obsidian Black, riding on 20-inch AMG wheels and featuring brown upholstery and wood trim inside, this Mercedes-Benz G-Class features a host of optional extras. The list includes the Driving Assistance Package, 360-degree camera system, ambient lighting, Burmester premium sound system, rear entertainment system and a sunroof.

    Can I buy an used 2019 Glass Wagon now? I will pay $80K with zero miles on it!

    • lagunas3ca

      Crazy at $80K you would be overpaying by about $5K for a brand new G500 in 2002.

    Come on Merc, you couldn’t find any square side view mirrors?

      I read they choose these mirrors to cut down on wind noise. Apparently they did try many styles but all caused too much wind noise. But yeah…

        This truck is not about aerodynamics and Merc knows it (Smile).
        And the previous generation E-Class had very tasteful rectangular mirrors that would be perfect.

    The more I see of this new G-Class the more I long for the old G-Class. This looks so watered down and feminine whereas the last iteration of the G-Class (especially with the AMG package) looked so macho and beastly.

    Also, a G500 returning 11.1L/100 km? Haha, yeah right.

    • Nordschleife

      Yes you can definitely tell it’s a softer than it’s previous iteration.

    I am kind of tired and annoyed of reading about people selling their build slots. Maybe because I can’t afford to buy it but I just feel like this is getting ridiculous.

    • Yeah and what’s the point? in times everyone else will own the car anyway.

  • lagunas3ca

    This new design would be fitting for an entry level 6-cylinder G400. Similar to what they quietly did with the SL400. The price of entry dropped by $20K and many of the options of its pricier siblings were still available.

    This looks like a configurator to me…
