2017 Mercedes Benz GLS
Category : 2017 Cars
7-liter V8 engine that delivers 449 hp and a stout 516 lb-ft of torque. Finally, the GLS500 uses a 4. Next up is the GLS350d, which is powered by a 3. 0-liter V6 engine that makes 329 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. Positioned at the bottom of the lineup, the GLS400 packs a twin-turbocharged 3. 0-liter turbodiesel V6 rated at 255 hp and 457 lb-ft. The GL’s engines carry over to the GLS with minor modifications that promise to boost performance and — importantly for a roughly 5,500-pound behemoth — gas mileage.
The GL350 diesel will likely remain the bargain of the lineup, with a base price around ,000, and the mighty Mercedes-AMG GLS63 should ring in at roughly 2,000. In the UK, only the diesel and AMG will be offered, with a base price of £67,940 and £100,560, respectively. Pricing for the 2017 GLS hasn’t been announced, but when it arrives in dealers in late March, expect it start around ,000 for the GLS450, while upgrading to the GLS550 will bump things up to around ,000. Australia will get the diesel, GLS 500 and AMG, but pricing information has yet to be made available.
