    this is not your 2018 g 550. the improvements exceed expectations, fit and finish is perfection. i have owned 4 g-wagons, this new and improved vehicle is outstanding. if you want something that everyone does not own, this is the suv for you. absolutely love it!

    Rent don’t buy

    We just finished a vacation in Naples FL, rented a G Wagon for the week with plan to try before you buy. After driving the 2022 G550 for a week I’m good. I have no desire to ever own one or even rent one again. It sounds great, looks cool, acceleration is fun, and the interior is very nice. The day to day livability is very hard to live with. The doors feel like those of a bank vault which is cool for a day then when your kids are unable to properly close them and you are constantly worrying about your kids loosing a finger if they get one caught in the door is an issue. The wind noise over 45 mph is the most impressive I’ve ever heard which is saying a lot considering there must be a ton of noise insulating material in the vehicle because it is dead silent under 35 mph except the awesome exhaust notes. Our G wagon had less then 4000 miles on it and the car play would not work and the software was up to date, MPG is terrible which is to be expected and was not a turn off at all. Very poor rear seat leg room was expected but this amount of leg room is kid appropriate and small adults front and rear only my 10 year old could barely fit behind me and I’m 6’5”. At the end of the week I was happy to turn it in with zero desire to get behind the wheel again which says a lot for me. I have romanticized this SUV for many years and am finally in a position to purchase one if I so desire. For the asking price of these vehicles it needs a lot more. It’s a 1970s German military vehicle which has been turned into a luxury SUV and no matter how many times I read that line I did not truly get or accept it until I lived with it for a week. I was grateful to get home to our 2018 Navigator and 2022 GX 460, both of which are far far better day to day options.

    The best suv I've owned. It can't be beaten. I enjoy my privacy and driving a G550, unfortunately, steals any privacy you may have. I'm constantly being watched exiting, loading groceries, refueling, and the most uncomfortable, drivers aligning their vehicles alongside mine to film the car in action. And, of course, the younger crowd seeking attention that rev up their engines at stoplights or intersections. The aforementioned is never ending.

    PRO: Incredible old-school build quality, like Bentley or Rolls. Hand assembled in Austria. Very solid, capable and strong. Feels safe and secure. Excellent engine and transmission. Great visibility. Smooth ride on 19 or 20" wheels and optional adaptive suspension. CON: compromised interior space utilization, fuel efficiency, large turning radius, wind noise above 70 mph. Many recalls/warranty repairs. VERDICT: Unique.
