2017 Mercedes GLS Redesign

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS is a very large and rectilinear seven-seat utility vehicle. Its lines that fall squarely into the classic large-SUV mold, but it forgoes some of the glitz and excessive chrome of other luxury SUVs. But against the more fluid, rounded, expressive shapes of the German brand’s sedans and newer utility vehicles, however, the GLS suddenly looks either classic or a bit old-fashioned despite a new front end that shares some styling cues with those newer vehicles.

The front end of the GLS (nee GL) has a wider grille with a larger three-pointed star emblem in its center and two thick horizontal bars resembling the wings of a biplane seen from the front. The hood has acquired a pair of long, narrow “power bulges” as well. The result is essentially a very large version of the family face most recently seen on the C-Class sedans and the new GLC compact crossover utility (which replaces the GLK). Front and rear lights, bumpers, and alloy wheel choices are all redesigned, and the taillights feature LEDs, as do the daytime running lights.

The 2017 Mercedes GLS can take up to 7 passengers in 3-row layout cabin. Since this is luxurious model, you don’t have to worry about leg- or head-room, as well as for elbows. Second row is very flexible, so that offers additional space and improves access to rear row of seats. Cargo area is also adjustable, and could be enlarged to take more luggage. Steering wheel is covered with leather, while control panel clusters are shown in few colors. A lot of wood and leather is used for many details. Comfort is improved with air ionization system and additions of many infotainment systems.

2017 Mercedes GLS Interior

The new GLS arrives in American dealerships in March, but don’t fret if you can’t tell much of a difference. Exterior changes from the GL-class it replaces are only slightly more obvious than the extra letter in its badge, and it’s still the big ol’ Benz capable of hauling seven people in three rows of seating or as much as 94 cubic feet of cargo. A slightly wider grille opening pushes the revised headlights toward the outer edges of the nose, while new LED taillights and a reworked rear bumper highlight the changes out back. Inside, the restyled interior now sports the company’s COMAND touchpad that’s proliferating across the Mercedes lineup. (More details on the changes are available here.)

With the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS, Mercedes gives its already-outstanding GL-Class SUV a mid-cycle refresh with a more refined interior, some new sheet metal and a new name. Already among our favorite vehicles in the luxe-SUV segment (or any other, for that matter), the big Benz impresses as a seven-seater that actually fits seven adults, all while towing a boat, without feeling floaty and underdamped.

On the exterior, the refresh is minor over the old GL, but does include new sheetmetal ahead of the A-pillar and a restyled rear bumper. The new front fascia looks sportier than the outgoing model, and the available AMG version takes that to the next level with an even more exaggerated look.

One of the most luxurious models will be out soon, and fans can expect a lot of unique details on it. Exterior is elegant, with roof rails, under guards and side skirt trim. Chrome trims are replaced with night package. There will be Sport exterior package available for higher trims, which includes 21-inch alloy wheels and side running boards. This package brings unique bumpers on both ends. Standard models of 2017 Mercedes GLS have LED lightning. New lights are not only functional, but also decorative. Few paint jobs are offered for new Mercedes-Benz crossover, as Diamond White comes as standard, and Cardinal Red is new scheme for 2017 year model.

2017 Mercedes GLS Engine

2017 Mercedes GLS Engine

The 2017 Mercedes GLS crossover will be propelled from 3.0-l BiTurbo V6 engine, ready to deliver 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft torque. This engine uses direct injection for better performance. Other models get power from 4.7-l or 5.5-l V8 units. First can produce 449 hp and 516 lb-ft torque, while output of second is even higher., with 577 hp. Also, one diesel variant of 2017 GLS could be purchased, and it is BiTurbo V6 with 3.0-l displacement. All engines are mated to a seven-speed, 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission.

Starting at the bottom of the lineup, the GLS350d is powered by the automaker’s familiar 3.0-liter V-6 turbo-diesel engine, making 255 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque. For now the entry-level gasoline model is a GLS450, with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 producing 362 hp and 369 lb-ft. The GLS550 is the higher-performance option, and it makes 449 horsepower and 516 lb-ft from its 4.7-liter twin-turbocharged V-8. Serious driving enthusiasts who want a practical three-row utility vehicle in the garage will go for the top-performance GLS63, with a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8 making 577 hp and 561 lb-ft.

Mercedes hasn’t yet released performance specifications or fuel economy figures for any of the variants in the lineup, but based on the comparable improvements made to the related GLE-Class (formerly M-Class) lineup earlier this year, the nine-speed automatics should bring slight boosts to both performance and the official EPA ratings. The GLS 350d (diesel) will likely remain one of the efficiency kings of its segment especially in real-world highway driving–with a rating of more than 20 mpg combined.

Under the hood of the GLS450 is a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that churns out 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Stepping up to the GLS550 nets buyers a twin-turbocharged V8 with 449 hp, while the AMG GLS63 gets the same engine tuned to 577 hp. Mercedes-Benz also delivers for its loyal diesel following with a V6 turbodiesel under the hood of the GLS350d. The oilburner delivers 255 hp and 455 ft-lb of torque, and won’t actually roll coal unlike certain other German diesel engines.

The only available transmission in non-AMG GLS models is the new 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic; AMG GLS63 models continue to use the 7g-tronic speedshift seven-speed auto a transmission that should help make this full-sized SUV feel considerably more sporty.

Power comes from a choice of four engines. On the base end, there’s the GLS350d with its 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6, good for 255 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque. I love this engine, and it’s my favorite in the GLS the smooth torque rush blends nicely with the relaxed SUV demeanor, but it’s got plenty of guts for climbing steep grades. The GLS450 now uses a twin-turbo gasoline V6, a version of the 3.0-liter unit found in the C450 AMG Sport, with 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. It’s fine; the majority of customers who buy the GLS will opt for this engine, and they’ll be rewarded with a completely unremarkable, but perfectly pleasant experience. The GLS550 pictured here, however, uses Merc’s twin-turbo 4.7-liter V8, with 449 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. That’s more than enough power for the GLS’ intended purpose, but man, it’s fun to pass slow-moving Austrians with the wealth of power available here. Of course, the truly speedy will want to climb up to the 577-hp, 561-lb-ft AMG GLS63 which according to the previous model’s specs, anyway should be good for a sub-five-second 0-60 sprint. The Mercedes-AMG GLS63 will be tested at a later date, and I fully expect it to be hilarious, terrifying, and super cool.

The top-spec non-AMG model is the GLS550, and according to one Mercedes display we saw at the launch event, it is “lavishly motorized” thanks to a 4.7-liter twin-turbo V-8 putting out 449 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. From behind the wheel, this engine is sufficient in the same way that a gas-powered blender is. Yes, it’s fun, but you rarely have a chance to use the available power. The lower-cost V-6s once again are the sweet spots of the lineup, and the diesel-powered GLS350d even gets a small power bump over its predecessor.

Benz calls the GLS the S-class among SUVs, and with its rich appointments and power, who can argue? The three rows of seats have room for seven; the interior has leather, wood, and options like an air ionization system. The GLS450 has a 362-hp twin-turbo V-6; the GLS550 has a 449-hp twin-turbo V-8. For economy the GLS350d has a 255-hp diesel V-6. All have all-wheel drive and a nine-speed automatic. Safety tech includes cross-wind assist, collision-prevention assist, and brake assist.
