2018 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG

The new second-generation W463 (Not called the W464. Don’t get me started on this.) Mercedes-Benz G-Wagens have been have been on dealer lots for a few months now and as expected, they are selling so fast that the lot attendants don’t even have a chance to swirl the paint up by trying to “wash” them. They’ve been selling at a rapid pace because in addition to looking nice and fresh, they ride more like a new Range Rover than a military vehicle from the 1970s. This however has the last of the first-generation W463 not selling so hot because even with offering a little discount on them, a person who can spend $140,000 on something can probably spend $150,000 to get something that is much better. Mercedes knew this, so they tarted up the last of the first generation cars in fancy paint and today’s vehicle is exactly that. This 2018 G63 AMG is painted in Agate Green that is a color I can say I’ve never seen before. Normally I love green, but I’m not sure about this color on this hulking SUV. This color on a 911? Absolutely. On a G63? Well, what do you think?

Kudos to Mercedes for offering a cool color like this on the G, as unexpected as it is. Yes, you’ll pay for it at $6,500, but at least it is an option. I’ve gone back and forth about it and I think I would want to see it on a real road before I make a judgement on it and not inside some staged studio. On the inside, things get even wilder with two-tone tan inserts on the seats and the door panels. As you might have guessed, this was a $5,000 option as well. I can say I really like that, but the entire interior seems very dated compared to what is offered now with the new G.

Showing just 48 miles, this G63 is still crazy expensive at $140,000. Funny thing is, the sticker price was $157,000. So either someone took a giant bath on buying this thing and driving it around town for a day or this independent dealer got a massive discount from Mercedes to take it off the lot. Either way, I’m surely not spending $140,000 on it. Maybe in about 20 years I’ll take the plunge.

  1. I’d have to agree. I actually liked the special edition colors they did on the G a few years ago like the lava orange and bright green, but this is just gross, especially with the black/tan interior.

  2. I have to say, I love the color. I am from Chicago and had a chance to see and be in this car a few months back. I am pretty sure it’s this particular car, because, well.. The color that is probably making it the only one in Chicago. Working at the hotel where we parked the car (and we park quite a lot of G-Wagons in all the imaginable colors) this is the only G-wagon that the entire staff went like “Wow, they should make more of these!” It is absolutely stunning in person and that is not just my biased opinion. I agree about the 911 probably wearing it better, in fact had one recently parked with the similar shade and matching color wheels, but this one definitely wears it good and I was so glad to see it arrive in anything other than matte gray, black, white or silver.
