Breadth of capability. Depth of character.
Don't just ride apart from the crowd, travel above it. The spacious, sumptuous, 7-seat GLS wraps thoughtful innovations in fresh style and even more refined luxury.
Grand design, down to the smallest detail.
With a long wheelbase for generous room and a smoother ride, the restyled GLS lets you live large without the bulky driving experience. It's chiseled and muscular, yet polished and agile, from its new grille to its LED taillamps.
A digital cockpit with a human touch.
Widescreen displays and more advanced and intuitive 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.
With a giant sunroof, 64-coulor ambient lighting, ventilated front seats and a power second row, the GLS offers everyone the Star treatment. Available luxuries range from four massaging seats to 5-zone climate control.
Show how you roll. Up to 23 inches.
GLS 450 wheels start at a substantial 21 inches. The AMG Line, standard on the GLS 580, adds even bolder style. And along with the black accents of the Night Package, you can supersize the wheels to 23s. Disclaimer
The GLS offers truly luxurious seating for seven adults, standard. A 6-seater layout with power 2nd-row captain's chairs is also available. The Premium Rear Seating Package can make the rear cabin even more accommodating.
Responds to a touch. Or a talk.
Just say "Hey, Mercedes," and an intelligent digital assistant lets you operate many features with everyday language. It can even learn more over time. Standard, sport and wood/leather steering wheels feature intuitive touch controls.
Give your senses a fresh new 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.
Your SUV, virtually in your pocket. Your next move, shown for real.
Mercedes me connect puts a world of remote features, from starting to locking its doors to scheduling service, in a handy smartphone app. Augmented video can overlay your next navigation instruction on a live view of the turn itself. Disclaimer Disclaimer
The GLS has many dimensions, but they all aim to outmeasure other large luxury SUVs. Rigid standards create a flexible vehicle that's spacious yet agile. And at home on a trail, with a trailer, or coddling you in its fine tailoring.
Advancing a legacy of luxury.
The GLS was born to be a Mercedes-Benz SUV, not adapted from a pickup truck. 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 S-Class of SUVs.
The Premium Rear Seating Package treats 2nd-row passengers like royalty. Ventilated and massaging seats. Headrest pillows. And a wireless tablet to control rear-cabin comfort features.
Turbo torque. Hybrid assist.
Both the 375-hp GLS 450 turbo inline-6 and the GLS 580's 510-hp biturbo V8 offer advanced tech and abundant torque. Featuring hybrid electrification, their Integrated Starter-Generator can also add a burst of power to allow gas-free coasting and lower emissions.
Fast flexibility: The quick-shifting 9G-TRONIC.
With nine speeds and fingertip shift paddles, the advanced 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission can deliver quick response as well as efficient, quiet cruising. DYNAMIC SELECT drive modes suit your driving moods and needs.
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. Available E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL can camera-scan the road ahead, lean into curves, and even rock the GLS out of a sand trap.
