2017 Mercedes Benz GLS Revealed

Snapshot: Being a full-fledged seven-seater SUV, it would be the top-of-the-range vehicle in the German automaker's SUV portfolio.

Mercedes-Benz has revealed the new GLS SUV and the company calls it the "S-Class among SUVs." Being a full-fledged seven-seater SUV, it would be the top-of-the-range vehicle in the German automaker's SUV portfolio. Compared with its predecessor, the new generation features improved efficiency, additional DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes, improved air suspension system (AIRMATIC) with enhanced damping system (ADS) and nine-speed 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission.

Like its predecessor, the new GLS boasts ample elbow and headroom in all three seat rows. With its diverse adjustment options, the center seat row enables a high degree of flexibility in the interior, including a cargo position for optimum use of the luggage compartment. Other interior highlights include a new 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel in nappa leather and a newly designed instrument panel with color Media Display. Options available for the new GLS also include an air ionization system for even better interior air quality.

Individual highlights can be created in the GLS interior with the help of the wood/leather multifunction steering wheel, ambient lighting featuring three color shades or the wide range of generously proportioned trim elements on the instrument panel and door panels with coordinated retractable cup holder covers. As for safety of the occupants, Mercedes Benz GLS comes loaded with COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS, Crosswind Assist and ATTENTION ASSIST. Other systems available as standard on the GLS include: PRE-SAFE system, Brake Assist BAS, electronic all- wheel drive traction system 4ETS, ESP, and cruise control.

All of the engines available on the new GLS provide better performance across the model line. The powerful GLS550 4MATIC with V8 biturbo engine featuring direct injection now generates 449 bhp, some 20 bhp more than the preceding model. The 3.0L V6 biturbo engine, also featuring direct injection, is used in the GLS450 4MATIC. This engine produces 362 bhp and and like all GLS models has an ECO start/stop function.
