Mercedes G-Class Limited Edition Is A Retirement Present To Itself

Limited Edition

Naturally, it’s limited to 463 units.

The death of the G-Class is fast approaching, so it makes sense that Mercedes-Benz wants to capitalize on the current model with limited editions of the beloved off-roader before it makes way for the all-new G-Class due next year. After revealing the G63 and G65 Exclusive Edition and the G63 Final Edition, we now have the imaginatively named Limited Edition G-Class available as a G350d, G350d Professional, and G500 model. Only 463 examples of each Limited Edition are being built in a nod to its W463 internal codename.

The G-Class W463 has been around since 1990, so its retirement is long overdue. To ensure that the G-Class retires gracefully, the Limited Edition features unique styling tweaks and additional equipment. The G350d, for example, is distinguished by its classy designo mocha black metallic paint, and comes equipped with an eye-catching protective strip with a unique trim insert featuring a brushed aluminium look. As standard, you also get the Sports, Chrome and Exterior Stainless steel package, as well as 19-inch five-spoke AMG alloy wheels in titanium grey, a heated windshield, heat-insulating dark-tinted glass for the rear side windows and rear window, and an electric sunroof.

The G350d’s more rugged Professional counterpart is finished in China Blue and is distinguished by a steel front bumper, protective grilles on the headlights, front mud flaps, and the Professional Offroad package which includes a roof rack with a rear ladder and a wooden load compartment floor. As standard, the G350d Professional Limited Edition includes heated front seats, a radio with Bluetooth and navigation, a heated windshield, and the Loading Protection package. The G500 Limited Edition, meanwhile, is finished in an extravagant designo platinum magno with contrasting black accents.

The three louvres of the radiator grille and the spare wheel cover are also painted in magno black. As well as the Chrome and Sports packages, standard equipment in the G500 includes heat-insulating dark-tinted glass for the rear side windows and rear window, a Harman Kardon surround system, TV tuner, heated windshield, and auxiliary heating, as well as Active Distance, Blind Spot and Parking assists. All three Limited Edition G-Class models have "Schockl proved since 1979" embossed on the center armrest referring to the Schockl Mountain in the Alps near the Graz plant in Austria where the G-Class is built. The mountain is often used to test the off-roader’s capabilities.

As for pricing, the G350d Professional will be priced at 103,940 Euros ($120,627) in Germany, while the G350d will cost 122,918 Euros ($142,652). The more expensive G500 will set you back 140,164 Euros ($162,695). Mercedes will be rolling out the G-Class Limited Edition models in January 2018 ahead of the redesigned next-generation G-Class which is expected to launch later next year to commemorate the off-roader's 40th anniversary.
