Spyshots: 2013 Mercedes GL with AMG Body Kit

These are some of the clearest photos of the new Mercedes GL we’ve seen, as some more camouflage has been stripped away. Enough in fact for is to notice that this people-moving SUV specialist is actually wearing an AMG body kit, borrowing some of the lines of the GL63 AMG model, which like the ML63 AMG will come with a twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8 engine. But the test car you see here is probably a boring oil burner, not a V8 monster.

The new GL will be the ideal luxury solution to transport you and six of your friends in style. It’s reportedly based on a stretched version of the new ML’s chassis.

The look of the SUV has also changed a bit. At the front, there’s a two-bar grille with a huge empty area from which the three-pointed star emblem stands out.
The engine range for the 2013 GL-Class will be borrowed from the ML, including the 3.5-liter V6 with 302 hp and the efficient 3.0-liter V6 diesel for the BlueTec. Yes, there is even an AMG version planned of this full-size SUV.
