It’s renovation time for Mercedes’ GL that has been modestly facelifted inside and out and renamed to GLS to confirm its “position as the S-Class among SUVs”.

Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, Grand Edition, Mercedes GL on 05 24th, 2011

Much ahead of its proposed launch later this year, Mercedes has unveiled its GL Grand Edition! Have a look at the pictures alongside and you will know why they call it Grand. The Grand Edition comes up with a new front fascia with a prominent grille, tinted headlights and LED daytime running lights.


Besides, the 20-inch alloy wheels, special badging and aluminum running boards make the Grand Edition absolutely fitted to line up as the last model of its kind. There will be four engines available under the hood. The 350 BlueTEC produces 155 kW (211 PS / 208 hp) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, while the 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY develops 195 kW (265 PS / 262 hp) and 620 Nm (457 lb-ft) of torque.

A 4.6-liter V8 with 250 kW (340 PS / 335 hp) and 460 Nm (339 lb-ft) of torque and a 5.5-liter V8 with 285 kW (388 PS / 382 hp) and 530 Nm (391 lb-ft) of torque will complement on the petrol front. The GL Grand Edition is expected to be available at Germany carrying a price tag of around €80,206.

Next-Gen Mercedes-Benz GL Caught On Spy Cam 21
Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, GL, GL-Class, mercedes, Mercedes Benz, Mercedes GL on 07 21st, 2010

The next-generation Mercedes- Benz GL has surfaced in the form of spy pictures. Clicked by an enthusiast from outside a development center in Southern Germany, the GL prototype caught on cam appears to belong to the wagon/ SUV family.

2012 Mercedes GL-Class

The front-end design has similarities with the current E-Class and the GL is expected to be built on a stretched version of the next generation ML platform. The car, going by the pictures, is expected to come sporting LED daytime running lights on the bumper; while there will be compact light clusters for the taillights. A wider grill and a more aerodynamic nose would add to the charm.

Merc is likely to stay with the engines that were earlier part of the ML SUV. This could mean that the 3.0 and 4.0 liter diesels as well as the 5.5 liter gasoline/petrol engine coupled to the brand’s 7G-Tronic (7-speed) transmission would remain. Likely to arrive sometime in late 2012, the next-gen GL would be model to look out for. [via WCF]
