Product Overview

Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class X167 is a full-size crossover SUV in production from 2019. It is available with a range of inline-6 and V8 engines that displaced 2.9 to 4.0 liters.
Compared to its predecessor, the X167 GLS is actually designed to be more elegant rather than sportier. It uses a new generation of ICE powertrains, among which diesel is curiously missing, this time probably for good.
Those who drive offroad, for work or leisure, will appreciate the extraordinary approach, departure, and breakover angles that the chassis offers. Utility-minded owners will love the 2400L (85cu-ft) cargo space. The Mercedes-Benz GLS X167 also comes with a high towing capacity.
3rd-generation Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class is marketed as the "S-Class of SUVs". All models drive all four wheels via a 9G-Tronic automatic transmission, and most have 48-volt mild-hybrid technology. Airmatic suspension is standard, while E-Active Body Control is available.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
In seven-seat form, the GLS houses a 355-litre load bay, rising to 2400 litres with the second and third rows folded. At 5213mm long, the new GLS has grown by 51mm, making it 62mm larger than the BMW X7. It’s well proportioned, but its sheer presence is hard to disguise when you see one up close. The GLS handles relatively nimbly, aided by the smooth ride of the air suspension.

Pros
  • Sleek, spacious interior
  • Excellent off-road performance
  • Excellent infotainment system
Cons
  • Not as big as rivals
  • Not as spacious as rivals

Price starts at £75,040 and goes up to £91,540 for the AMG Line Premium Plus Executive. UK versions of the GLS miss out on Mercedes’ trick E-Active body control system, opting instead for standard adaptive air suspension. Step-off is impressively smooth, the 2.9-litre six-cylinder's immense torque reserves allowing you to gracefully surge forward before its distantly muscular rumble gradually ebbs as you come off the throttle.

Pros
  • Powerful engine
  • Comfortable ride
  • Decent infotainment system
Cons
  • No E-Active body control
  • Lacklustre ride quality

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The GLS 600 has been given impressive performance, handling and refinement. Power comes from the same mild-hybrid drivetrain used by recently unveiled S580. It mates a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine with a 48V starter-generator. It provides the new Maybach SUV with 549bhp and 538lb ft of torque.

Pros
  • Superb handling
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Superb infotainment system
Cons
  • Lack of standard equipment

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
Mercedes GLS takes a huge leap on from its predecessor, boasting superb comfort and refinement. Its diesel engine is smooth, powerful and quiet, delivering fuel economy which – though not great – is acceptable for this sort of car. E-Active Body Control is a must-have option to allow the GLS to operate at its best – the ride quality is sublime.

Pros
  • Best fuel economy on the road
  • Superb cabin space
Cons
  • Expensive compared to rivals

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
Head-up display is huge and useful, while Infotainment is solid in presentation. While the dual 12.3-inch screens up front are bright and beautiful, the MBUX software running on them is still a little unintuitive to browse. Performance is strong considering that this is such a big and heavy car, with the 700Nm of torque the defining factor. It pulls the mighty GLS along very well if you lean on the throttle, and with little fuss.

Pros
  • Excellent infotainment
  • Excellent off-road tech
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons
  • Lack of standard air suspension

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Mercedes-Maybach GLS feels like a perfectly credible rival for the Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Bentley Bentayga. It offers a more comfortable ride than the two British heavyweights as well as more high-tech driver assistance and better infotainment. However, some may be unable to look beyond the fact that it is simply a dressed-up GLS.

Pros
  • Gorgeous interior
  • Svelte ride quality
  • Decent infotainment system
Cons
  • Noisy engine

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
The E-Active Body Control suspension is an impressive upgrade that improves comfort, convenience and performance. The full-sized SUV can be had with adaptive cruise control that can maintain a set following distance behind a leading vehicle. Expect the 2020 GLS450 to start at $75,200 before options and a $995 destination and delivery charge.

Pros
  • Gorgeous interior design
  • EQ Boost technology
  • Comfortable ride
Cons
  • Expensive compared to other Mercedes-Benz SUVs

The 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLS63 starts at $134,090 including $995 for delivery. The GLS' interior is one of the best in the three-row SUV space. There's plenty of Nappa leather, open-pore wood and I'm totally here for the center grab handles. The Energizing Comfort program is a bit wackadoo.

Pros
  • Gorgeous interior

  • Comfortable to drive

The Maybach GLS has plenty of power under the hood, with its 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8. The engine is supplemented with EQ-Boost, a 48-volt mild-hybrid system that can fill in low-rev turbo lag. The SUV has a unique Maybach drive mode that prioritizes the comfort of rear seat passengers.

Pros
  • Gorgeous interior

  • Only 18.5 cubic feet of space

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following***:
On the road, the GLS 580 is as powerful as you expect but the smaller GLS 450 is also surprisingly fast. The GLS includes adjustable ground clearance up to 8.5 inches, and will ford through water deeper than you really should be driving through. Mercedes covers all of their vehicles with a four-year, 50,000-mile general warranty that includes the powertrain.

Pros
  • Class-leading off-road performance

  • Comfortable ride
Cons
  • Expensive for what you get
