Mercedes-Benz is preparing for the 2023 model year, which means dealers will have a lot of new inventory soon. With six new models arriving late this year and another in early 2023, many of the brand’s existing models remain largely unchanged, albeit with slight price increases.
Looking through the brand’s model lineup, one of the most startling price increases will be for buyers of the 2023 Mercedes G-Class. Starting at $139,900 for the G 550, that’s an $8,150 hike over the model’s 2022 price. The automaker suggests, however, that updates will be coming to the famed SUV later this year, which may explain why the increase is so big.
Elsewhere, prices for Mercedes’ 2023 model year vehicles are rising by about between $1,000 and $2,000, with a few exceptions like the AMG GLE 63 S 4Matic+, which will have an MSRP of $120,000 in 2023 as compared to its base price of $116,850 in 2022. The only updates the GLE range will receive next year is the addition of standard metallic paint on several trim levels.
For models that haven’t been refreshed or redesigned for the 2023 model year, the updates are minor. Metallic paint is now standard on several cars, such as the E-Class All-Terrain and Wagon, E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet, the CLS, and the GLS 450 4Matic. The S-Class Sedan and Maybach S-Class, meanwhile, will get new MANUFAKTUR paint and upholstery options, as will the SL roadster, the E-Class coupe and cabriolet will have NAPPA leather as standard, and the GLS’s panoramic roof will also come standard.
The AMG GT 4-Door Coupe, gets new MANUFAKTUR upholstery options, and paints, and new 21-inch AMG mutli-spoke wheels are offered, all for the V8-powered models. The AMG version of the GLC coupe, meanwhile, has been cut from the lineup altogether.
The big changes are reserved for the new models. That includes the EQS 450 4Matic sedan (starting at $107,400), the EQS 450 and 580 4Matic SUVs, the AMG C43 sedan, the EQE 350+ and 350 4Matic as well as the 500 4Matic sedan, the AMG EQE sedan, and the EQB 250+ SUV ($52,400), all of which will be arriving at dealerships in late 2022. The new GLC 300 and GLC 300 4Matic SUVs, meanwhile, will arrive in the first half of 2023. Prices for all of these models have yet to be announced, unless otherwise indicated.
The majority of the new models will be fully electric, which is exciting news for well-heeled car shoppers looking for a premium EV. Not all will be completely electric, though, as the AMG C43 Sedan brings F1 technology to the customer car world for the first time thanks to its electric-gas turbocharger. Each vehicle’s power-unit will be built by a single AMG worker, which marks the first time that that attention to detail has been showered on anything less than an “AMG 63” model.
We will have more information on all vehicles and their pricing when it becomes available.
