The biggest Mercedes-Benz vehicle has changed its character. Formerly known as GL, they have not been trying to replace the G-Class for some time, and this is already visible in the design.
Earlier, protracted shapes have completely changed their place on the lighter buses of the civilian Mercedes. It may seem that the GLS is a more friendly phenomenon for German competitors, the BMW X7 with an enlarged nose, and the Audi Q7 screams with the sobs in front of it. But in size, it probably will not be a satisfying phenomenon in the mirror. The rounded shape is also more aerodynamic than the previous one: the air resistance factor decreased from 0.35 to 0.32.
The photos do not really tell you what the car is. The man is skeptical when he turns out to have the smallest twigs with which the model is available 19 inches, but the photos are probably the 21st version of the peak and they do not look much. The GLS is over 5.2 meters long and the wheelbase is 3.1 meters wide and the width of the mirror is 1.96 meters.
At the beginning of the distribution GLS will be available in four different versions. Two-way turbocharged petrol engine: 450 is a 367 hp version of the Mercedes's three-liter serial six-seater, and the 580 is a 4-liter V8, which will be here 489 hp. In addition, there will be more diesel with the same three-cylinder six-cylinder engine: 350d with 286 horsepower and 600 Nm peak torque, 400d with 331 horsepower and 700 Nm. It seems that the second model in Europe is designed by Mercedes, and AMG versions will probably be offered later on with our petrol engine. If the midn is true, there will be at least two of them, one six and one eight-cylinder, and another hybrid version is expected.
Of course, the seventh seat will incorporate all that we expected from such a luxurious Mercedes, with all-wheel drive, air suspension, LCD instrument panel and automatic emergency brake, and even an off-road package that will take you to the field . it also adds automatic transmission with another half. And who would buy it because of the spatial offer will not be disappointed: with folding electric seats, a cargo space of 2400 liters can be incorporated into the car.
This is one of the Mercedes models that will only be produced in North America, from where it will be delivered everywhere. The type is expected to be launched in Europe during the fall, and further versions will only be available until 2020.
