The largest SUV in the Mercedes-Benz family is also among the sleekest, thanks to flowing contours that please the wind as much as the eye. Rugged detailing like chrome bumper inserts underscores smooth elegance that continues all the way to the polished roof rails. The iconic wide grille, continuous and chrome-outlined side window openings and horizontal LED taillamps convey muscular agility from any angle, a look the GLS pays off from behind the wheel. Offering first-class comfort in all three rows has long been a hallmark of the GLS, a benefit of its spacious size and advanced suspension. The redesigned cabin enhances comfort for all aboard: The second row features standard power seats, increased legroom and 40/20/40-split folding seatbacks. The third row offers room for two adults, along with enhanced luxuries from climate to cupholders to charging ports. It also power-folds in a 50/50 split to increase cargo space.
The seamless power and natural balance of an inline-6 have returned to the Three-Pointed Star with another Mercedes-Benz tradition: a technological leap forward. The lightweight, fully beltless engine is also electrified, with an Integrated Starter-Generator that can supply up to 21 hp, allows fuel-free coasting and can recapture energy during deceleration. Even on its own, the twin-scroll turbocharged gas engine outputs 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque for smooth, efficient response. An ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations, to save fuel and reduce emissions. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for quick acceleration response. An added benefit of EQ Boost is that its Integrated Starter-Generator makes the restart process more seamlessly smooth than ever before. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time. A newly engineered version of 4MATIC(R) can automatically send from zero to 100% of the engine's torque to either axle, front or rear. A transfer case with a multi-disc clutch can vary the torque distribution based on the driving conditions in the moment. While this allows for precise response to varying surfaces and individual-wheel traction off-road and in inclement weather, it can also enhance cornering in any season by favorably influencing the vehicle's handling. With a greater range of ratios and shorter steps between gears, the 9-speed automatic changes gears more quickly yet more smoothly. Along with a more seamless delivery of power, the lighter, more versatile transmission enhances quiet riding comfort and fuel-efficiency. The electronic selector and shift paddles let you control all gear changes with your hands on the steering wheel. And drivers can vary the shift modes via the innovative DYNAMIC SELECT system.
Power front seats feature intuitive, seat-shaped controls on the door, plus a 4-way power lumbar support. To set and save your ideal driving position, a memory system for each front seat recalls three stored positions for the seat, plus the positions of the 4-way power steering column and side mirrors for the driver. Electrically heated front seats quickly take the chill out of even the coldest day. Three levels of warming automatically step down after several minutes to the lowest setting.
Radar-based technology can alert you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as you start to brake, it can automatically provide an appropriate level of braking to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, it can also initiate braking automatically at a range of driving speeds. The system can also detect and react to crossing pedestrians at typical city speeds. The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST(R) continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior and can automatically alert the driver with both visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips. With enhanced sensitivity, the system can also help detect drivers who begin their trip drowsy and offer more useful information to drivers along their journey via a new dashboard display.
