The new 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS
The SUV reaches a new peak.
It is the SUV all other sport utility vehicles wish they could be.
Now the Mercedes-Benz GLS sets an even higher standard, with a spectacularly redefined interior, increased intelligence, an electrified engine, and features that redefine luxury driving.
The new GLS presents a more imposing exterior, thanks to its larger dimensions. But for drivers and passengers, those inches really add up inside: The cabin has never been so comfortable, with the second row, especially, gaining even more room. All three rows of seats are fully adjustable electronically, with the Easy Entry function allowing convenient access to the third row. Five-zone automatic climate control invites passengers to tailor the temperature to their own individual preferences. And E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL creates a stable ride in any conditions.
The fluid interior design makes a modern statement, with a large media display commanding the dashboard. For the first time, the GLS has been equipped with the new MBUX infotainment system, allowing drivers to control the vehicle through natural voice commands or simple hand gestures. For the convenience of passengers, a 7-inch MBUX Android tablet can be used to control functions in the rear of the vehicle, and is stowed discreetly in the second-row console. (The driver, of course, can assume control at any time.)
Thanks in part to the new 4MATIC variable all-wheel drive, the GLS handles with more agility than ever, even as it’s more capable of taking things off-road. It’s the first Mercedes-Benz to introduce V8 and inline-6 engines enhanced with EQ Boost and a 48-volt electrical system. And when you’re ready to go from backroads to town, a new feature allows you to prepare for a car wash with one press of a button.
In short, this is the standard-bearing SUV thoroughly improved in exceptional ways — including some you probably never imagined. Find it at dealers toward the end of the year.
