Spyshots: 2013 Mercedes Benz GL-Class Undisguised
The GL is sort of like the wagon version of the new ML, with a much larger body and seating for seven people as standard. The new generation looks very much like a C- or E-Class, since it has rounded headlights and only two bars on the grille.
The engine range for this SUV with people skills will be borrowed from the ML, which means you’ll start off with a 302 hp 3.5-liter V6 in the GL350 and work your way up to either the clean diesel in the form of a 240 hp 3.0-liter lump (GL350 BlueTec), or something a bit more powerful ,the GL550 that will get the 429 hp from its twin-turbocharged 4.6-liter V8. Since this is a G 63 AMG you’re looking at, it should come with the 518 hp version of the 5.5-liter V8 as standard.
