Different variants of the Mercedes Benz GL have different transmission systems. While the GL 350CDI model employs the 7G Tronic Plus form of automatic transmission, the 63AMG model utilizes the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G Tronic form. The driver has the freedom of changing gears using the paddle shifts provided just behind the steering wheel. The in-car software with regards to engine and transmission have been heavily optimized for allowing greater gear-shift dynamics. Vehicle response is also improved.
