Have you been planning to buy a brand new G-Wagon any time soon? Well, tough luck! According to a report by MBPassion Blog, Mercedes-Benz has stopped taking any new orders for the G-Class and the boxy luxury SUV is completely sold out for the next 3 years.
The preferred mode of transportation for the world’s wealthy people on many occasions is Mercedes-Benz G-Class, which is more than just a status symbol. Yes, it is deeply impressive to look at, offers a sumptuous cabin, and carries a hefty price tag but, underneath, it’s a seriously good off-roader. But with hoards of monied buyers flocking to their local Benz dealerships to buy one, it’s difficult to imagine how the luxury carmaker is fulfilling the demand for its iconic SUV.
The box-shaped SUV with military origins was originally introduced in 1979 and has been continuously in production since, making it one of the longest-produced vehicles in Daimler’s history.
Well, according to the latest report from MBPassion Blog, the Stuttgart-based brand has placed an order freeze on the G-Wagon. The decision was implemented earlier this month on January 17 and excludes existing orders confirmed up to and on January 16.
The exact reason for the order freeze has not been specified, but it could very well be linked to the long waiting lists currently plaguing the G-Class. Delivery times are now stretching back as far back as the fourth quarter of 2024. Here in the US, prospective owners of all V8-powered Mercedes-Benz models were sorely disappointed when the brand announced that several eight-cylinder vehicles would not return for the 2022 model year. This affected G500 and AMGmodels, too.
This doesn’t mean the G-Wagon is nearing the end of its life – far from it, in fact. An all-electric EQG derivative is expected to arrive in 2025 and, while it has a few differentiating features, it retains the signature boxy, upright stance that makes it such a style icon.
