2015 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Towing & Cargo Capacity
When it comes to buying luxury vehicles, thoughts of toughness and utility features may be secondary to performance and technology. But many drivers entering the luxury segment also have regular towing and hauling needs that will allow them to take trips out of town, tow boats and trailers, and have plenty of cargo space for the family. Although there may not be as many utility options within the luxury segment, models like the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class provide strong towing and hauling capabilities with excellent cargo space to cater to adventurous families.
2015 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Towing Capacity
No matter which Mercedes-Benz GL-Class model you choose (GL350, GL450, GL550, or GL63 AMG) it will feature a towing capacity of 7,500 pounds. That capability all starts with a series of powerful engines, such as the 429 horsepower biturbo V-8 in the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GL550 SUV. With the proper equipment, the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class has the ability handle most towing needs, including boats and campers.
To take full advantage of those towing capacities, you’ll need to add the optional trailer hitch. The available class IV trailer hitch also includes wiring harnesses for the trailer lights and brakes. Aside from those elements, the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class takes no other additional features to handle its 7,500 pound capacity, as a strong engine and proper cooling systems and transmission are already in place. GL-Class models also come with standard Trailer Stability Assist to help mitigate trailer sway while driving.
