Mercedes-Benz will officially be retiring their long-running G-Class SUV in the very near future. To celebrate the military-ready super SUV long career, the German automaker will be a set of special edition models: the Edition Select and the appropriately named BA3 Final Edition. The Final Edition will be a short-wheelbase model and the Edition Select is a long-wheelbase version.
They both share a lot of the same equipment, such as the 7G-Tronic automatic transmission, 4ETS traction control, and three locking differentials with push-button control. The BA3 will be offered with a choice of two engines: either a six-cylinder G350 BlueTec diesel with 211 hp or a G500 5.5-liter V8 with 388 hp. The Edition Select will only be offered with the G500 V8. Exterior features for the BA3 include AMG flared wheel arches, twin-spoke alloy wheels, stainless steel running boards, and an AMG grille. The interior features ambient lighting, black leather seats, and walnut wood trim.
Pricing for the BA3 begins at €90,511 for the G350 and €100,685 for the G500. The Edition Select receives two-tone leather upholstery in porcelain and black and a chrome package adds that includes a gear selector, seat controls, speakers, and a luggage compartment sill. Additionally, there's a Harmon Kardon Logic7 surround sound stereo system. Edition Select pricing adds another €6,735 to the price of the standard long-wheelbase G500. And as you can tell by this pricing, both models are only available in Europe.
