  1. LOL, I might dog that company but then I dog all companies and yes up till that concept they had nothing of interest. That concept and the Lovely Red one I posted have my interest, the rest of their product line sucks. People change their minds all the times depending on what a companies offers and you should know that ccap41. I loved the 2012 concept and have stated that in past posts if you are wanting to go look. The new concept I found in searching today just tells me that MB has yet to get it right and those of us that do spend money on expensive auto's will do so when the style / Design is right. 2019 G Wagon - Failure in my Book That Red Concept above - Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! Since you seem to have forgotten or never really paid attention, I do own a 100K SUV! Escalade ESV Platinum, fully loaded.
  2. That 2012 Bubbly Concept actually had me interested in a possible new SUV. But the re-warmed G-Wagon is a Failure! What they gave us was a Rewarmed worked over 40 year old product. 2019 G Wagon 2012 when they showed the G Wagon Concept it was exciting to the crowds and this shows just how much better it was than the current G Wagon. They could have at least give us this concept version of the G Wagon that they did in 2015 or 2016. That is a 6 figure Modern 21st century G Wagon at least, not what they released this year. Makes me think MB is not as flush with cash and just trying to keep ripping people off with old product till they can make money to support their EV initiative. Makes me think they see a short life for the G Wagon before People will demand an EV long range version.
  3. Motor1 has these great sliding windows comparing the old and new G wagon. This actually shows just how much has not changed on the SUV except for the interior shots. Like those. https://www.motor1.com/news/227089/2019-mercedes-g-class-comparison/

    Why? I just do not get saving something like this.
  7. Guess MB lost their we have a 48 volt hybrid system with the way Ram rolled it out. Interesting as some reporters are going after hidden easter eggs. Jalopnik has a great story on all the cool stuff they found in the new Ram. https://jalopnik.com/here-are-the-2019-ram-1500s-easter-eggs-1822099947 Makes me want to go crawl all over the new rides to check out what cool easter eggs are hidden where.

  10. Thanks Drew, Misread that. OK, then that should last.
  11. My thinking is that you can have a mini pickup truck that can hold 3 adults in base cabe config plus another 500 to 1000 lbs in the bed. I think with EV mini pickup truck you could easily have AWD of a performance monster with up to 1000 lbs payload capacity in the bed and have a quiet sleeper Syclone pickup. Yup loved the GMC Syclone pickup, just think the fun that would be for hauling around 5 kegs in the bed! Yes, it is amazing to see in Seattle how many people still have mini pickups as they do not need mid or full size trucks even with owning a house and the tight parking on streets, etc. Inner City living I still believe people want a truck for various chores without all the size and bulk. First Auto OEM to build a 200 mile range EV Mini Pickup will catch considerable market share.
  12. I like this updated look and it looks good in Silver. Should continue to do well for them. Interior is solid and nice looking too. My only concern is the Turbo Engine with the Hollow spindle. That I can see failing sooner rather than later due to the extreme heat from the turbo system.
  13. Clarification grasshopper, in the mid size truck class, to me V6 is a requirement and should be there. In the Mini Truck class, 4 bangers only with and without turbo is fine. When you look at the mini trucks of the late 70's and 80's the Chevy Luv, Ford Ranger, S10, etc. they all did the job they were needed for which for many people was going to Home Depot type stores, small jobs. I still believe a mini truck market can exist and even be a EV truck that handles 500 to a max 1000lbs.
