Introducing the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV
It gets more than a new letter from the S-Class.
For years, the Mercedes-Benz GL has set countless standards among 7-passenger luxury SUVs, much as the S-Class sets the bar for sedans. For 2016, it’s reborn as the new GLS, and its many improvements are wrapped in fresh new style. New LED lighting front and rear, and bold new wheels from 19 to 22 inches are among its many brilliant details.
Luxury at the forefront. In all three rows.
Heated power front seats. A second row that reclines. And a power-folding third row with adult-sized comfort. No matter where you take a seat in the GLS, the GLS takes you to a place where leadership is omnipresent: in roominess, in refinement, and in its rewards. Available innovations range from massaging front seats to a vast Panorama roof.
Lighting that’s designed to get noticed.
Expressive new headlamps draw more than admiring eyes: their LED Daytime Running Lamps help other drivers take notice of your approach. Available new active LED headlamps cast brighter beams, and adapt to curves and oncoming traffic. Stylish new tail lamps include new LED brake and turn signal lamps, and “twin torch” LED running lamps.
Easy to enter, even nicer to stay.
Large side doors and innovative EASY-ENTRY 2nd-row seats welcome up to seven adults to three rows of luxury seating, including a spacious third row. The standard power lift-gate, power-folding third row and 60/40-split second row accommodate up to 93.8 cubic feet of cargo. In any configuration, the GLS has an extraordinary capacity to satisfy.
Instant response, lasting benefits.
Advanced Direct Injection engines make more power and torque from less fuel, including bi-turbo gasoline V6 and V8 engines, and a state-of-the-art clean diesel. Along with a new 9-speed automatic transmission, new DYNAMIC SELECT lets you choose a driving mode to match your mood, from Comfort to Sport or even one for slick surfaces.
Intelligent Drive: Virtual eyes on the road. Real action on your behalf.
