    Default New Merc SUV's

    Hi All

    I am currently in a place Salalha in Oman. It is on the Indian Ocean and quite pleasant.

    This morning I came out of the hotel The Hilton (nog al) and parked outside were some new Merc SUV's. The Black one is the new Gelandewagen.

    Look very smart but noted there were no prices shown.

    Haven't seen the white one before. Guess it would be the new X3 competitor or something like that.
    The G55 on the other hand is nothing new. Its been in the current spec since 1990. The base model (G500) starts at $100K (that is US dollars so at the moment just over a million Rand). The G55 is extremely popular in California and is the car to be seen in. It still has very impressive offroading features but I'm sure not too many of them see gravel. You can have a look at the Mercedes US site for some more info and specs on it www.mbusa.com

    I have seen the new GL models in Pretoria at least three times in the last few weeks. Looks quite a bit bigger than the new ML models.

    Right, the white one is called the GLK and it has just officially been launched here in the US. It is indeed a small SUV so pretty much pitched in X3 space.

    GLK350:
    3.5L 268-horsepower 24-valve V-6
    7-speed automatic transmission with 4MATIC 4-wheel drive
    Retail MSRP: $35900

    Specs and some more information is now available on the US site: www.mbusa.com

    I am sure I saw the G55 AMG offered at R2.1m in South Africa in 2007. It was supposedly the most expensive SUV in RSA at that time...a believable claim..
    In America and Canada it was also referred to as the Flying Brick. I saw one in action in Edmonton somewhere early 2001/2.. Truly something I would not object to having under my roof.
