2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS Chicago IL
One of the world's best full-size luxury SUVs gets a new name for the 2017 model year, as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class becomes the Mercedes-Benz GLS. As the badge changes, so does the vehicle itself. Although many aspects of the vehicle remain intact, there are noticeable upgrades, both in the SUV's styling and features. Before diving into the details, let's take a look at some of the key attributes and specs. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS in Chicago IL is a 7-passenger full-size SUV available in four variations, each with its own distinct powertrain.
The base model — the Mercedes-Benz GLS450 — is the most popular of the group, with a 362-horsepower 3.0-liter biturbo V-6 engine at its core. By its side is the GLS550, which houses a 455-horsepower biturbo V-8. Those traditional models are joined by the diesel-powered GLS350d and the performance-focused Mercedes-AMG GLS63. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS release date is expected in late March of 2016 with orders beginning in December. Fill out the form below to stay up-to-date on everything GLS-related from Loeber Motors.
Although the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS retains its overall character, a new grille and more chrome accents throughout its exterior provide a more modern look. In the rear, full LED taillights and subtle revisions add to the overall aesthetic of the already unmistakable SUV.
More dramatic changes take place inside the 2017 GLS, where a new 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel wrapped in nappa leather is introduced. Additionally, a new, full-color instrument panel adds to the overall appearance. More character can be introduced with ambient lighting and wood grain accents.
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS offers as many as six transmission modes. Through the DYNAMIC SELECT controller in the center console, drivers can choose between a variety of driving modes, including COMFORT, SLIPPERY, SPORT, and OFF-ROAD.
