Height of luxury. Depth of character.
In an ever-more-crowded field of luxury SUVs, treat yourself to some room. The sleek, spacious GLS wraps class-leading innovations in bold yet elegant style.
Its muscles are taut. Its accommodations, grander than ever.
With a long wheelbase for more legroom and a smoother ride, the GLS lets you live large without the bulky driving experience. It's chiseled and muscular, yet polished and agile. 100% LED lighting adds to its brilliance.
A digital cockpit with a human touch.
Widescreen displays and perhaps the industry's most advanced visual, voice and touch interfaces help the GLS feel quickly like second nature. Exquisite craftsmanship envelops you in timeless luxury.
First class amenities. Even in the third row.
From 64 colors of ambient lighting to power 2nd-row seats, the GLS lets everyone in on the Star treatment. Available luxuries include four ventilated and massaging seats, heated 2nd-row seats, and 5-zone climate control.
Show how you roll. Up to 23 inches.
GLS 450 wheels start at a sizable 20 inches and can go up to a staggering 23 with the new AMG Line and Night Package options. GLS 580 wheels start at 21 inches. The Night Package adds gloss black styling elements to either model. Disclaimer
The GLS offers truly luxurious seating for seven adults, standard. A no-charge 6-seat option features power 2nd-row captain's chairs with walk-through 3rd-row access. An Executive Seating option can make the GLS 580 rear cabin even more sumptuous.
Express your desires: MBUX listens. And your GLS responds.
Using Artificial Intelligence, MBUX can turn your words into your GLS's action. Just say "Hey, Mercedes, it's cold in here" or "I need a coffee," and MBUX can warm the cabin or set the standard MB Navigation. It can even learn your habits, and new phrases.
Give your senses a fresh sense of luxury.
Front seats are heated, ventilated and available with massage. The second row offers similar luxuries. Even the armrests can be heated. Ionizer-purified air can soothe the whole cabin with a subtle infusion of fragrance.
Even without a trailer, it's a leader.
A big 7,700-lb towing capacity is just one of the GLS's superhuman abilities. Available tech lets it spot a traffic jam and help you negotiate it with ease. Change lanes with the tap of a turn signal. Or help protect your ears in a crash. Disclaimer Disclaimer Disclaimer
GLS capability has many dimensions, but they all aim to outmeasure any other large luxury SUV. Rigid standards create a flexible vehicle that's spacious yet agile. At home on a trail, with a trailer, or coddling you in its fine tailoring.
A welcome change from other SUVs.
Born to be a luxury SUV, not from a pickup truck, the GLS independent air suspension helps the roomy third row offer first-rate comfort. The standard power second row, available to seat two or three, also helps make 3rd-row access easy.
The pinnacle of SUVs, more than ever.
The Executive Rear Seating Package PLUS for the GLS 580 treats 2nd-row passengers to exclusive luxuries: Ventilated and massaging seats. Headrest pillows. And a wireless tablet to control rear-cabin comfort features.
Charging forward: One turbo or two, with an electric boost.
Both the 362-hp GLS 450 turbo inline-6 and the GLS 580's 483-hp biturbo V8 offer advanced tech and abundant torque. Featuring hybrid electrification, their Integrated Starter-Generator can also add 21 hp, or allow gas-free coasting and lower emissions.
Faster flexibility: The quick-shifting 9G-TRONIC.
With nine speeds, the advanced 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission offers a versatile range of ratios, for quick response and efficient, quiet cruising. Fingertip shift paddles and the modes of DYNAMIC SELECT let you take charge anytime.
Depth of character: Evident on every surface.
With standard multimode, height-adjusting AIRMATIC® suspension and fully variable 4MATIC® all-wheel drive, the GLS puts its best foot forward even as seasons and surfaces challenge it.
