2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS Spied with Very Little Camo and in a More Revealing Color

Sightings of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS are beginning to intensify, a strong sign that we're getting closer to its official launching date. The guys putting on the camouflage also seem to relax a bit as this latest batch of photos show us almost all there is to see.

The new Mercedes-Benz GLS still has that little bit of camo that only protects the few areas where modifications have actually been applied, but anyone with just a tiny bit of imagination can figure out how it will look. We showed you a video of the big SUV just a few days ago, and we thought that was quite revealing. But that car had some extra pieces of camouflage compared to the one in these pictures, and it also came with a dark paint job, hiding the more subtle details.

With these hi-res photographs and a silver Mercedes-Benz GLS, we can now get the full picture regarding the new luxury SUV. We get to see the front bumper air intakes for the first time and they're massive while the punctures in the headlights camo confirm they will look just like the ones on the GLE.

Moving on to the rear, the taillights' graphics are still covered, but they're certainly hiding full LED technology. Apart from that, the bumper is still hidden but all the crests are there to be seen so it's easy to make a mental contour.

As we've said earlier, the GLS is expected to spawn a Maybach version soon that will hit directly as high-end rivals such as the Bentley Bentayga or the recently announced but yet unnamed Range Rover SVO product.

Back to the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS, the big SUV should make its full debut later this year, most likely at the LA Auto Show in November. Since the US and China are this model's most important markets, a European debut made little sense. Go through the gallery below for all the available images.
