Overview
This is the S-Class of SUVs. The Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV offers more capability than most drivers will ever need and enough luxury to keep all seven passengers comfortable—no matter where you happen to end up. Choose from three models: the GLS 450 4MATIC the GLS 550 4MATIC and the epic AMG GLS 63 4MATIC. Power comes from a bi-turbo V-6 or one of two bi-turbo V-8s Bone of which is handcrafted by AMG. 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive is standard. So is self-levelling Airmatic suspension. Your GLS SUV is rugged but it’s still a Mercedes-Benz. And the Easy-Entry second-row seat slides forward so every luxurious seat in the third row is easy to get to—from either side. And from Mercedes Me Connect to available COMAND with voice control to the suite of standard and available driver assistance and safety systems you’ll be connected and protected. Choose from a variety of colors options and Genuine Mercedes-Benz Accessories4 and build a GLS SUV that’s all yours. The Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV. Well beyond practical.
