There will be only one variant of the car available in the States, just as before, namely the GLS 450 4MATIC. The price for the new model is around $5,000 higher than for the outgoing version, namely $75,200. That's not including the $995 destination and delivery charge and all the extras customers will choose to fit on the SUV.

But the hike in price is well worth it, as there is essentially more of everything in this new car. The new GLS is longer, wider, and more luxurious than anything that came before it, bringing to the market a host of premieres in terms of both performance and gadgetry.

The powertrain in the 450 4MATIC is electrified, pairing an internal combustion engine with the EQ Boost mild-hybrid system. The gasoline unit develops 367 hp and 500 Nm of torque but gets an extra kick of 22 hp and 250 Nm of torque kick in short bursts from the EQ Boost.

Offered for the first time with a 6-seat option configuration that includes captain's chair, the new GLS is equipped with the carmaker’s MBUX infotainment system, a 7-inch Android tablet in its own docking station in the second center armrest and two 11.6-inch touchscreens available for the people in the second row. 

The car debuts Mercedes’ Carwash function, a system that once engaged gets the car ready for cleanup by folding the exterior mirrors, closing the windows and sunroof, turning off the rain sensor and switching the climate control to air-recirculation mode.

The new GLS will be available in dealerships this fall, and the car will roll off the assembly lines of the Tuscaloosa plant in Alabama.
