Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class

Recommended Posts

The Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, formerly Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is a full-size luxury SUV produced by Mercedes-Benz since 2006. It is a three-row, seven-passenger vehicle positioned above the GLE-Class, and is the flagship of the Mercedes-Benz SUV line.

The GLS shares the same unibody architecture with the GLE-Class. Most GLS-Class vehicles are assembled at the Mercedes plant in Alabama, except for a small number of early 2007 production vehicles which were manufactured in Germany. The first generation model (X164) was manufactured between 2006 and 2012 and was replaced in 2012 by the new generation GL-Class (X166).

From 2016 with the release of the facelifted second generation model, the GL-Class was renamed to GLS-Class as per the revised nomenclature adopted by Mercedes. Under this scheme, SUVs use the base name "GL", followed by the model's placement in Mercedes-Benz hierarchy. The "G" is for geländewagen (German for off-road vehicle) and alludes the long-running G-Class. This is followed by the letter "L" that acts as a linkage with the letter "S", the SUV equivalent to the S-Class.

Third generation (X167; 2020–)
The third generation model debuted at the 2019 New York International Auto Show. The engine options at the launch are 3.0-litre turbo I6 (GLS 450 4MATIC) and 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 (GLS 580 4MATIC), both petrol with EQ Boost electric motors, and 2.9-litre twin-turbo diesel I6 in two different outputs (GLS 350 d 4MATIC and GLS 400 d 4MATIC).

The trademark registration leads to GLS 600 and GLS 680 as possible Mercedes-Maybach version. With possible demise of Mercedes-Benz V12 engine, the GLS 600 might be equipped with 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 and GLS 680 with same engine as GLS 600 but paired with more powerful electric motor as demonstrated in Mercedes-AMG GT Concept.

The wheelbase is 2.3 inches longer and nearly an inch wider. It will use the same architecture as the latest GLE with MBUX and dual 12.3-inch screens as well as E-Active Body Control and car-to-X communication. The exterior has also been redesigned with sleeker headlamps and taillamps.
