    2014-GL-CLASS-GL450-GL550-SUV-001-MCF.jpg
    4.6L biturbo V-8 engine
    Standard
    The 362-hp 4.6-liter V-8 combines twin turbos and numerous advances to deliver more torque from less fuel, with cleaner emissions. Rapid-multispark ignition can fire up to four times per millisecond, while high-pressure Direct Injection can fine-tune fuel spray in 0.1 millisecond, reducing emissions, fuel consumption and noise. A lightweight diecast-alloy block, widely variable valve timing, reduced friction, and clever "on-demand" ancillary components further boost efficiency.

    7-speed automatic transmission
    Standard
    The industry's first 7-speed automatic is smooth, responsive and efficient. A wide range of closely spaced ratios delivers the ideal response in virtually every driving situation, for relaxed cruising, quick acceleration, and thanks to two overdrive ratios, better highway fuel efficiency. Adaptive logic adjusts the shift points to match your driving style, while shift paddles on the steering wheel let you enjoy manual-style control anytime.
