Ever so elegant.
With a new name reflecting both its modern design and premium luxury, the 2017 GLS sets countless new standard for full-size 7-passenger SUVs. With three rows of first-class seating and class-leading new safety systems, it pairs comfort with confidence like no other. From cargo carrying to trailer towing, its capacities are as vast as the capabilities imparted by its 4MATIC all-wheel drive, Crosswind Assist and more. When you compare large SUVs, examine the dimensions that matter most: The depth of their engineering. And the strength of their character.
The state of the art among large luxury SUVs has achieved a new pinnacle of artistry. New active LED headlamps and a bold new grille flow into a twin power-dome hood. Aerodynamic refinements enhance driving confidence and quiet comfort. Redesigned taillamps feature LED fibre-optics, while dual chrome exhausts punctuate a resculpted rear bumper. Glistening chrome and satin silver details reflect the substance beneath the stylish surface.
All three GLS gasoline engines employ such innovative technology as twin turbos, Direct Injection, a rapid-multispark ignition and a low-friction design to turn less fuel into more torque, with fewer emissions. A highlight among these powerplants is the powerfully efficient 362-hp bi-turbo V6 in the GLS 450 4MATIC. And the GLS 350d 4MATIC combines torque-rich response with even more exceptional fuel-efficiency, thanks to its advanced turbocharged clean-diesel V6. A responsive new 9-speed automatic is standard on all non-AMG models.
From the heated power front seats with memory to the power-folding third row, every seat in the GLS has something special to offer. Sumptuous front-seat options include multicontour seats with a massage feature. The 60/40-split reclining second row can also be heated. And the third row is not only spacious but easy to access from either rear door, thanks to EASY-ENTRY® folding of the second row on both sides.
Approximating daylight even more closely than xenon headlamps, standard new Active High Performance LED headlamps enhance your nighttime vision, adapting to the road ahead by steering into corners as you do, and automatically shining as far as possible. LED Daytime Running Lamps and stylish “twin torch” fibre-optic LED taillamps combine eye-opening brilliance with eye-catching style.
When Mercedes-AMG takes the performance knowledge it gains on the racetrack to someplace far from the beaten track, the result is an SUV of superlative capability. Performance-focused 4MATIC all-wheel drive and advanced chassis systems apply the massive torque and power of the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 4MATIC with deft precision. And from its aggressively sculpted body to its lavish cabin, it elevates your expectation of what a full-size SUV can be.
