The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class Is A Beast!

Mercedes-Benz has introduced the 2017 GLS-Class, a new model that replaces the GL.

The first-ever GLS is scheduled to greet the public for the first time later this month at the Los Angeles Motor Show.

Billed as the S-Class of the SUV segment, the GLS gains a redrawn front end that predictably falls in line with Mercedes’ latest design language. It features a twin-slat horizontal grille with a big three-pointed star emblem, bullet-shaped headlights, and a new hood accented by a pair of power domes. Out back, the SUV is fitted with sleeker-looking LED tail lamps and a more streamlined lower bumper.

Chrome accents add a touch of elegance to the boxy silhouette, while new alloy wheel designs and additional paint colors round out the list of exterior updates. Select models can be ordered with a Sport exterior treatment that brings add-ons such as a deeper front bumper with three mesh air dams, side skirts, a roof-mounted spoiler, and specific 21-inch alloy wheels.

With seating for up to seven passengers, the GLS’ spacious cabin receives a three-spoke steering wheel, a more modern-looking instrument cluster with a configurable TFT screen, and a new center console with a touch pad that lets the front passengers navigate the infotainment system. Mercedes has also fitted its biggest and boldest SUV with a high-resolution eight-inch touch screen that sticks out from the center console. Leather upholstery comes standard on all versions of the GLS, and buyers can make the off-roader their own by choosing from one of five trim options such as black, ginger beige/espresso brown, and saddle brown/black.
