2019 AMG Pics released

Wow. Definitely distinguishes itself from the base model.

Re: 2019 AMG Pics released

Personally I much prefer the new G500 over this.

Each to their own I guess.

And I prefer the old G500 over both, but the new G63 must be the ugliest Mercedes of all times..?

Edit; I have found one improvement on the new model, the grooves on the roof are now reversed so they don´t collect water...

The look is definitely different: Only a tach with digital speedometer. Humm!
I do however like the brush guard for one reason. I parked on the street and when I returned some idiot had put his bumper against my bumper. Had I had this guard I would have pushed the a$$ a little.

That guard is painted too.  So, instead of scratching up your bumper, you scratch up the guard.  Same problem.  

I love my rattle-can black bumper.  Scuffs and scrapes?  The biggest delay is hunting down the can and shaking it.  Back to factory new.

Sure looks like bead blasted stainless to me. I could be wrong, but it's called the "Stainless Steel Packet".

Re: 2019 AMG Pics released

Wonder what the cutout on the back door is for... https://c.slashgear.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/17C1001_15.jpg (thinking it might be for the backup camera or a sensor of some sort)

Re: 2019 AMG Pics released

Anybody who needs a back up camera or park assist shouldn,t be allowed to drive.
That SIMILI push bar won,t be very solid and watch what they sell it for if you damage it.
Hit the back of a Ford F250 at 5 MPH and you might have 10,000 dollars damage on this thing

I have givven up on German vehicles after realising how they are robbing their clients on service costs and
parts prices. Even poorly designed parts that fail prematurly are sold for absurdly high prices.

Back in the old days, a used Mercedes was a good buy. Today if it,s out of warranty, it,s a money pit.
The German manufactures aren,t just cheating on Diesel emissions, there colluding on service and parts prices.

The German government has just scratched the surface of the matter but the car industry is so important to their
economy that we may never know the whole story.

Re: 2019 AMG Pics released

I agree, Warren. They are not building the cars to last for more than a decade, either.

Gott sei Dank for my 2000 G500, which was built in November 1999. It is just over 18 yrs old, and still running strong.

10 years from now, the same will not be said for the "modern" models.

Re: 2019 AMG Pics released

Hated it when I first saw the pics of the matte grey/black one with the red accents but the white one looks decent. While not for me I am sure this will sell just fine to the target market!

Get ready for aftermarket facelift grilles styled after the new AMG grille for the older 463s!

Absolutely!

To me, he grill/front end of the AMG version is vaguely reminiscent of a Jeep Cherokee. Maybe a little left over Chrysler DNA at MB?
