Rugged refinement

Designed for comfort. Engineered for capability. Acclaimed for everything.

The deep values of the GL-Class define its shape, and its shape defies every limitation of large SUVs. Aerodynamic and athletic outside, it's advanced and accommodating inside. From its sporty grille to substantial wheels to its sleek tail, every element of the GL comes together to create an award-winning, truly fulfilling, full-size SUV.

Luxury for seven

Three rows of luxury seating, all at the forefront of innovation.

From its heated front seats to it reclining second row its power-folding third row, the spacious GL-Class seats seven in first-class luxury. Richly finished and abundantly thoughtful, it's also lavishly detailed, with advanced entertainment features and such comforts available as massaging front seats and a giant Panorama roof.

Visionary lighting

Makes nighttime more like daylight, and daytime more beautiful.

Standard LED Daytime Running Lamps and taillamps catch the attention of other motorists for added safety, and captivate onlookers with their scintillating style. Available Bi-Xenon headlamps generate light that's more like daylight. They also automatically adapt their beams to brighten curving and straight roads without causing glare.


Three rows of flexibility

More room for passengers, with room for even more.

Large side doors and innovative EASY-ENTRY 2nd-row seats welcome up to seven adults to three rows of luxury seating, including the generous third row. A standard power liftgate, power-folding third row and 60/40-split second row accommodate up to 93.8 cubic feet of cargo. In any configuration, the GL has an extraordinary capacity to satisfy.

High torque, low emissions

Advanced power to tow, pass, merge, and move the whole industry forward.

Three of the four advanced Direct Injection engines in the GL-Class make more power and torque from less gasoline. One uses no gas at all: the clean-diesel GL350 BlueTEC. And while they all offer certified ultralow emissions, their performance inspires any driver's emotions, with a paddle-shifted 7-speed automatic and brisk acceleration.

The confidence of 4MATIC

Reassurance when the weather turns. Rejuvenation when the road turns.

Standard on every GL-Class, 4MATIC® all-wheel drive instantly sends power to the wheels that can use it best, adding confidence on snowy streets and in sharp corners in any season. Its 4-wheel independent AIRMATIC® suspension delivers silky comfort and unexpectedly crisp handling control, along with 4-wheel automatic leveling.

The 550-hp GL63 AMG

A handcrafted aluminum fist, in a hand-sewn leather glove.

Its handcrafted biturbo V-8 only begins to reveal the superpowers of the GL63 AMG. Its 21-inch AMG® wheels conspire with an advanced AIRMATIC® suspension and ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM to ensure that its performance is as versatile as it is superlative. Its exquisite designo leather-lined cabin makes sure its luxury reaches the same summit.


Safer driving made easier

A multitude of innovations for multi-lane roadways.

Technological teamwork helps make highway driving safer and easier. DISTRONIC PLUS® cruise control uses radar to adapt your speed to the traffic flow, even stop-and-go. Blind Spot and Lane Keeping Assists can alert you if it's unsafe to change lanes or if you start to drift. Active technology can help guide the GL-Class back into its own lane.

DISTRONIC PLUS® adaptive cruise control is no substitute for active driving involvement. It does not react to stationary objects, nor recognize or predict the curvature and lane layout of the road or the movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver´s responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the DISTRONIC Proximity Warning System before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely. After braking the car for stopped traffic ahead, system resumes automatically only if traffic pauses for less than 3 seconds.

Blind Spot Assist may not be sufficient to avoid all accidents involving vehicles in your blind spot and does not estimate the speed of approaching vehicles. It should not be used as a sole substitute for driver awareness and checking of surrounding traffic conditions.

Driving while drowsy or distracted is dangerous and must be avoided. Lane Keeping Assist may be insufficient to alert a fatigued or distracted driver of lane drift and cannot be relied on to avoid an accident or serious injury.

Music, navigation and more

A treat for all your senses, including your sense of adventure.

Advanced entertainment, navigation and communication systems work with intuitive ease in the GL-Class. Bluetooth® lets you make calls hands-free and play music wire-free. The elegant central controller and color displays put a world of features within easy reach. A wide array of audio choices ranges from a USB port to available SiriusXM Radio.

While the navigation system provides directional assistance, the driver must remain focused on safe driving behavior, including paying attention to traffic and street signs. The driver should utilize the system´s audio cues while driving and should only consult the map or visual displays once the vehicle has been stopped in a safe place. Maps do not cover all areas or all routes within an area.

Bluetooth® interface does not provide phone charging or external antenna. Voice interactivity feature is dependent on selected handset. Phone sold separately. See dealer for a list of approved compatible phones. Bluetooth is a registered trademark of Bluetooth SIG, Inc.

Rear Seat Entertainment

First-rate entertainment for your 2nd-row passengers.
