An Overview of the Thrilling Mercedes-Benz GLS SUVs

Mercedes-Benz is giving the drivers of Fremont and Newark drivers plenty to be exhilarated by with the 2017 GLS series—a fresh take on the GL-Class. The new GLS is designed to provide comfort that is above and beyond all human expectations, while delivering the power and responsiveness you demand from a full-size SUV. In short, the GLS is bound to win your heart. You are not without options either, as you have your choice of three unique variations: the GLS 450, the GLS 550, and the AMG® GLS 63.

World Class Comfort Meets Adaptability

Not only does the GLS comfortably seat seven, but your passengers will be clothed in the comfort of luxury seating while they enjoy watching their favorite DVDs or play games to pass the time on those long trips. The optional Rear Seat Entertainment System, which includes two monitors, DVD players, and headsets, allows both rear passengers to choose his or her own entertainment option to avoid dreadful disagreements over entertainment. Reclining rear seats, massaging front seats, and a power sunroof allow you and your passengers to relax and enjoy the ride. Finally, when you have a large load to carry and require more functionality, the third-row folds into a 50/50-split to reveal 94 cubic feet of cargo space – all at the touch of a button.

The 2017 GLS is the ultimate companion on long drives, as it also offers the following comfort and convenience features:

  • 8-inch high-resolution color display
  • MB-Tex upholstery
  • Five years of mbrace® Connect (includes Remote Start, Speed Alert, Point-of-Interest Download, and more)
  • 60/40-split-folding second-row seats with EASY-ENTRY
  • HomeLink™ garage door opener
  • Optional COMAND® navigation
  • Optional in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Optional 900-watt Bang & Olufsen® BeoSound™ Premium Sound System

Bringing Excitement Back to the Utility Vehicle

The exterior design of the 2017 GLS preserves the sleek and muscular look of a performance vehicle. Its advanced aerodynamics help provide the exciting ride of a sports car, while its sturdy powertrains can tow up to 7,500 pounds with the optional trailer hitch. The presence of a new 9G-TRONIC® automatic transmission, 4MATIC® all-wheel drive with 4ETS®, and AIRMATIC® suspension makes the GLS quick on the uptake in every driving situation. If the demand for power and responsiveness is in your blood, you will not be disappointed with the GLS family’s choice of three high-powered engines. Gone are the days when you needed to sacrifice an exciting ride for functionality and utility:

  • Under the hood of the entry-level GLS 450, you’ll find a 3.0L biturbo V6 engine rated at 363 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. In the city, the GLS 450 earns a 17 mpg rating, while highway travel results in a 22 mpg rating.
  • The mid-level GLS 550 features a 449-hp 4.7L biturbo V8 engine, rated at 516 lb-ft of torque, 14 mpg in the city, and 18 mpg on the highway.
  • Powered by a handcrafted 5.5L AMG® biturbo V8 engine, the top-tier AMG® GLS 63 creates 577 hp and 561 lb-ft of torque. Despite its specs, the AMG® GLS 63 earns a 13 mpg city/17 mpg highway rating.

Advanced Technology is Responsive to Perils on the Road

Mercedes-Benz has employed the most impressive and responsive safety technologies to date in its GLS lineup. Optional Distance Pilot DISTRONIC PLUS® intelligent cruise control uses radar to identify vehicles ahead, adjust your speed, and resume course when obstacles are no longer in the way. It will even work in rush hour when traffic has come to a crawl. Available Blind Spot Assist and Lane Keeping Assist technologies alert you when vehicles have entered your blind spot or when you have begun to drift off course. Active technologies also provide responsiveness by making automatic adjustments to guide you back into your own lane and to slow to avoid accidents. Other notable safety features for the 2017 GLS include:

  • Active Brake Assist
  • Rearview camera
  • Trailer Stability Assist
  • Optional active LED headlamps
  • Optional PRESAFE® PLUS
  • Optional Surround View System
