Interested and btw, I see you were looking to buy a 05-11 G55 in Nov 2020. Is this the one you bought then that you are looking to sell now?

No sir, this G has been in my family since new. I was looking for another G for my wife, we ended up buying a Jeep SRT.

Feel free to text or DM with interest. I have 5 interested parties right now, going to be getting a PPI done in the next week.

Read up on it, it's extremely interesting!
Mercedes was going to stop production on G's, so they announced the Grand edition would be the last ever made.... Then next day, production kept on going! Haha


So I googled my own answer to this, which is that essentially there is nothing different about a Grand Edition other than the badges, new wheel design and maybe exclusive color offerings. Which is why other than the wheels and badges, it looks exactly like my '04 with the Designo package.

And for the main difference of course, '05 G55 is supercharged.. Big, big difference. :D

It is not! One of the reasons I bought one. I don't really need or want the extra 100+HP and added complexity.
