2021 Maybach GLS-Class Could Look This Good

Guys, given all that's happened in the automotive world in the past decade, we really can't blame Mercedes-Benz for wanting a slice of the super-luxury SUV pie. Because try as it might with the ultimate S-Class, people in China, America, and the Middle East just want the biggest, most expensive SUV.

The Maybach GLS is coming, but it will be late to the party. The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is already taking the money of every rapper who thinks the Bentley Bentayga just wasn't expensive enough. We don't know how the German SUV will stand out in the face of such strong competition, but they tell us it will have its own scent... whatever that means.

Yes, the perfume produced by the onboard dispenser will be unique, though normal plebs like us will probably never catch a whiff. We can, however, appreciate a well-detailed paintjob, something Maybach are masters of, taking many hours to apply ever layer and make sure it's perfect.

Space won't be a problem either, though initial reactions to this new GLS is that the BMW X7 does some things better. We expect the Maybach version to have not three rows but just two for more legroom and entertainment features.

This SUV is literally all about the opulence, and all the spyshots pointed towards a few design tweaks at the front. Carwow took a look at those features offered them in this rendering, which is a blend of the stock GLS and a Maybach SUV concept from a while back. As you can see, the grille, bumper, and headlights are all slightly different.

Behind all those revised features is a small range of V8 engines. Even before the launch of this new GLS-Class, the Germans placed trademarks for a Maybach GLS 600 and GLS 680, which we believe to be a mild-hybrid 4-liter V8 with about 500 horsepower and a plug-in making about 600 HP.
