Mercedes-Benz Hits Paused on G-Class Orders

Potential buyers will have to wait for the updated Mercedes-Benz G-Class or the EQG when they both arrive in 2025

  • The last day to order one was January 17th.

  • Delivery times extend into the 4th quarter of 2024.

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class, aka the G-Wagon and Geländewagen, has experienced quite a resurgence during the pandemic. Pre-owned pricing for the premium SUV skyrocketed quickly exceeding the truck’s value when it was new. This phenomenon isn’t going to end any time soon as Benz has just stopped taking orders for the G-Wagon.

41 Years and 400,000th Mercedes-Benz G-Class Built

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class was never a high-volume seller if mostly because of its $131,000 US base price ($154,000 in Canada) but it’s status as a legend and its capabilities have always made it a highly-aspirational premium SUV. This, combined with parts shortages and supply issues, slowed production further increasing demand.

What’s more, Mercedes-Benz announced that V8-powered models were to be discontinued for 2022, taking interest in the truck to another level. So strong has demand been of late that order books have been filled for the next three years according to GT Spirit.

As such, if you plan on purchasing a new G-Class, you’ll have to wait for the facelifted model or, alternatively, the EQG, in 2025.
