As far as power and torque are concerned, the twin-turbocharged, 4.7-liter V-8 in the GL550 should be more than up to the task. With 429 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, only 5.4 seconds are required to hit 62 mph from a standing start.

About three power units are expected to be offered in the new 2018 Mercedes GLS. One of them is a 4.7 liter V8 producing 355 hp and 339 lb-ft or torque. Yet another more powerful engine is expected, and it is a 5.5 liter V8 generating 382 horsepower and 391 pounds-feet of torque.
