Rugged refinement

Designed for comfort. Built for strength. Acclaimed for everything.

The deep values of the GL 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 its reclining second row to its power-folding third row, the spacious GL 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 an expansive Panorama roof.

Visionary lighting
Mercedes-Benz youtube

Makes nighttime more like daylight. Makes 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 curves and straightaways without creating glare to others.


Three rows of flexibility

Spacious, special and especially welcoming.

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

Powerful, progressive and exceptionally pleasing.

A choice of four advanced Direct Injection engines make more power and torque from less fuel, including an advanced new biturbo gasoline V-6 and a state-of-the-art BlueTEC clean-diesel. Along with a paddle-shifted 7-speed automatic and brisk acceleration, they all combine certified ultralow emissions with rewarding performance.

The confidence of 4MATIC

Surefooted, smooth and unexpectedly sporting.

Standard on every GL, 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 AMG GL63

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

Its handcrafted biturbo V-8 only begins to reveal the superpowers of the AMG GL63. 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 multilane 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 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.

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 the senses, and your sense of adventure.

Advanced entertainment, navigation and communication systems work with intuitive ease. 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 options includes Sirius XM Radio and Bang & Olufsen® Premium Sound.

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.

The purchase of a new, satellite radio-enabled vehicle includes a 6-month introductory subscription to the Sirius All Access package. SiriusXM Satellite Radio, SiriusXM Traffic and SiriusXM Weather subscriptions are sold separately or as a package after trial period. If you decide to continue your subscription after your trial, the plan you choose will automatically renew and you will be charged according to your chosen payment method at then-current rates. Fees and taxes apply. To cancel you must call SiriusXM at 1-866-635-2349. See SiriusXM Customer Agreement for complete terms at All fees and programming subject to change.

Rear Seat Entertainment

First-rate enjoyment for 2nd-row passengers.

A pair of big, crisp screens behind each front head restraint give your 2nd-row passengers a front-row seat for DVD movies, game play and more. Multiple inputs, two remotes and two DVD players let passengers enjoy themselves individually or together, with audio played via two wireless headsets or the GL's sound system.
