2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class – Luxury for Seven [Video]
The MY2014 GL 550 (500 in Europe) just received an in-depth video of most of the options it is available with in the USA, which is a bit odd considering it is actually built in “the land of the free”.
Some of the standard features it is equipped with pretty much make it an S-Class with seating for seven and off-road capability.
We are talking about air-suspension, Attention Assist,Collision Prevention Assist, Crosswind Assist, an electrically operated tailgate and even an active hood that provides a bit more cushioning in the unfortunate case that a pedestrian gets hit by the huge SUV.
Engine wise, the US gets the three-liter BlueTec diesel engine, a 4.7-liter twin turbo V8 with two power versions (the 362 American hp GL 450 and the 429 American hp GL 550) and the flagship GL 63 AMG model, powered by a 557 hp twin-turbo V8. You can learn more about the US-Spec 2014 GL-Class in the following review-like video though, courtesy of MB USA's YouTube channel.
