alexbi - Not sure what cars.com shows but take a look at the inventory feature on edmunds.com. Navigate to the beginning of the pricing section and then click on the inventory tab. You can change the parameters to search for 2010 GL450s within a 50 or 100 mile radius of your home zip code.
I searched my zip code (90503) and there are well over 100 GL450s and over 60 GL350s in inventory within 50 miles of me. I think this the edmunds inventory feature is pretty accurate.
I don't know what the inventory number has historically been but 160 plus 2010 GLs sitting on the lot within 50 miles of me sure seems like a fairly large number. I would certainly think Mercedes would offer their traditional incentives starting in August to make way for the 2011 GL models. I think the real question is going to be the amount and not if any incentives will be offered in August. I would wait until early August to decide as the savings could be substantial if they offer a $10k incentive like they did last year. That's just my two cents!

Tradergo - I was trying to compare the quotes I have been getting to what you received but I cant seem to get to the MSRP that you detailed. Could you double check your options? Do you mean P01 (not PK1)? Does the vehicle have the full appearance package or just the running boards?

Thank you Mike670 for your insightful comments. I pray you are right and we get hefty 10K incentives come 1st week of August.

I went to the dealer. They can offer over 15% off the msrp for R350. Looks they did not try to do too many for GL450 yet. I am waiting for the new incentive program in aug. If MB will not have any better program, I may do for 2011. Hope we can make our deal.

Thanks for clarifying the options. The price makes sense now. I think that $60k would be a good price for July with those options as its about $2k under invoice, which is what I have been offered with some negotiation, as well. Again, in August you might be able to get that price less any incentives that are being offered so it might pay dividends to sit tight until August. Black on black is a very common color combination so I am sure it or a similarly equipped one would still be available if you decided to wait 2 more weeks.

Gearing up for the hopefully generous August incentives. . .I did a local search of Inventory (within 200 miles of my city using Edmunds) and had about 20 to choose from and only 1 was close to the color/options I want. . .
So, I'm thinking I'll probably have to make a long distance deal and have the car shipped here. Does anyone have experience doing that? Any snafus to watch for?

I got my GL450 in Socal yesterday. Looks the incentive is $2700.00. The best dealI could find yesterday was 10% off MSRP +$2000.00 and plus fee. Hope you can make your decision asap since there is not so many GL450 2010 out there as I knew.

Thx much for the info. I will check out with the salesman today for that 2700 rebate you mentioned. I was actually offered about 2000 below invoice on a 10 GL450 (msrp at 69000, invoice 63000, sales 61300) about 2 weeks ago. seems the 10k rebate won't be there this time.
