Thread: Basic model G-Wagon for sale in Australia? I've just seen this at my MB dealer...

    Did you happen to ask how much. Last price I was quoted was around $105k plus tray and that was supposed to be a government discounted rate at the AFAC conference.

    The G Professional Wagon is now up on the Mercedes Benz Australia website. According to 4x4 mag, "Australia is the only market in the world to get the heavy duty G-professional 461 models for civilian use". Says a lot about the gap in the market without Defender I reckon.

    Car Advice and 4x4 mag say starting price is $109,900. ...if I had $100K to spend right now (and I didn't love my Defender) I know what I'd choose.

    Thanks for that Zeros. At least they have raised the braked towing limit to over 3 tons, but the ball weight is only 120kg.

    Articles in both this weekends Drive and Motoring section of the Age and Herald Sun.
    Very basic vehicle for the price - $109K for the 4 seater and $119K for the cab chassi.

    Thanks Crash,

    Good to read the articles, although they're so superficial! I guess that's what the popular press wants. ...Looking forward to a fairdinkum review, including build quality, ride and handling on all surfaces, etc. I guess a test drive would answer that though!

    Funky good video of G Professional Wagon here: G-class 300 CDI Professional W461 off-road - YouTube
    And some good pics here: Across the Simpson Desert in a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen - Photos (1 of 83)

    Let's hope we'll be doing the same for the next Defender!

    Cheers

    Well Spotted
    You would think for the price you pay for one of these in Australia that they could at least MOVE the handbrake - Shame on you Benz

    Not only the hand brake, but the rear barn door was not changed to open the other way either. Similar to the now defunct FJ Cruiser.

    Yes I noticed the rear door. Also rear glass is very small and spare looks like it obscures a lot.
