  • Who has purchased a 2013 GL now. I have a 2010 GL 450 but am thinking of moving up to the 2013 version. What kind of pricing are folks getting out there on the new 2013s?

    I am targeting the gl450 2013 MB Lease special $699 for 36 month plus TTL and 795 acquisition fee. I want the dealer pick up the 5K cap reduction.

    PLEASE let me know if are successful of getting that deal. We are in the market for a new SUV by December. We are looking at the ML, X6, Cayenne, and GL. I was at the Mercedes dealer helping my dad lease a car. I test drove the GL, but it was too expensive to lease. They were only discounting it 3500 off MSRP. Lease would have been over 1000 per month.
  • Hi -

    We just got a 2013 450 for invoice but had to agree to a money factor of .0021 (vs. their buy rate of .0016). Residual for 48 months with 12k per year was 54%.

    We are also getting the 2013 550, this one for 1% over invoice - it had to be ordered, so we got exactly what we wanted but won't get the car until April.
  • MSRP: 74.5K, got it for 57.5K + Tax & Title. (22% off MSRP).

    P2, MB Tex, DVD entertainment system, Blind spot assist, Running boards..etc.

    Not sure if 30 HP more in 2013 Gl350..would make much difference?
    Budget wise..this looks like a good deal.

    I got a great deal on a 2012 GL450 (against advice I paid down the lease with a higher down payment). It is a 24 month lease and we love the car. Is it possible to stretch out the lease longer at this point (only been making payments for 6 months) or buy it out? I'm going to short sale my house and will take a credit hit for awhile and want to keep the car to ride out the storm. Thanks for advice....

    what is the deal you got?

    what is the term?
  • We are looking for 2012 GL450 with less than 10000 miles. Lightly used or demo cars. The best offer we got so far was a MSRP 74K with 2500 miles for 59k.

    Worthy it?

  • Has anyone been able to get a lower price than the current lease special for the 2013s?

    MSRP is 69025
    Invoice is 64257

    Looks like the lease special is priced at 67626 - which seems steep ...

    Edmunds gives 66178 as current True Value - about 1800 above invoice

    Adding into this - most dealers only seems to have 1-3 in their current inventory.

    Looked at 2 GL 450's at a local dealer this weekend that were in stock. There were 3 other units with sold signs on them. Minimal discount off MRSP and awful trade in for 2011 GL 450 a little over 2 years old with 27500 miles. My concern was the trade in value was about 50% of original MRSP. Are MB vehicles not holding there value anymore? The residual value on this vehicle if I leased would have been 10,000-12,000 more. Makes me want to look at Audi, BMW, or lexus. Comments appreciated.
