NEXT STAGE: Addition in 2020
The flagship SUV received a redesign this year, with the 2020 model available in two variants. The GLS 580 4MATIC is the first Mercedes-Benz to introduce a new 4.0-liter V-8 biturbo engine, which delivers 483 hp. The GLS 450 4MATIC is equipped with a 3.0-liter inline-6 turbo engine, delivering 362 hp. Both variants receive an additional 21 hp from an electric EQ Boost feature enabled by a starter-alternator. The GLS features a wheelbase that's 2.4 inches longer, creating a roomier interior. A six-seat variant with two captain's chairs in the second row is available for the first time.
The SUV is expected to receive the luxe Maybach nameplate. The unibody Mercedes-Maybach GLS will likely debut in China in 2019 and go on sale in early 2020. It is expected to be priced at about $200,000, powered by a 560-plus-hp V-8 engine. The automaker plans to build the ultra-luxe Maybach model exclusively at its plant in Alabama, sources told Automotive News.
