Last Chance To Buy The Final Real G-Class

SUV

2018 model is the last hurrah for the 40-year old design.

Mercedes-Benz unveiled the second-generation G-Class at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit earlier this year. It’s the first redesign the model has received since its launch in 1979. The two may look the same, but underneath is a thoroughly modern chassis, while the entire package is loaded with all the latest tech you would find elsewhere in the Mercedes lineup, like a full suite of safety equipment and the company's double-screen dash.

However, the new model won’t arrive until later this year, meaning you still have a chance to get your hands on the last brand-new, first-generation G-Class. Shoppers will have their choice of three models, the regular G550 and the AMG’s double-trouble offerings, the G63 and G65 AMG. The G550 and G63 both sport one of Mercedes magnificent twin-turbocharged V8s while the G65 escalates things substantially with a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V12. More than likely this is going to be the last time the G-Class will even be made available with a V12. Mercedes even has a special Final Edition G65, only 30 of which will come to the United States.

There's also a Manufaktur Red and Black Edition package, which can be ordered with any G-Class. It features Magma Red paint with black accents on the outside and black leather with red contrast stitching on the inside. The AMG pair also get an available Mojave Package that adds Olive Magno exterior paint along with Saddle Brown leather and carbon fiber bits in the cabin. The G63 will be made available with an AMG Performance Studio Pack that offers the same interior, but with a Monza Grey exterior. Pricing wasn’t announced but expect the starting price to start close to the $123,325 figure of the 2017 model.
