All-new Mercedes-Benz GLS to start at $76,195

(June 11, 2019) The all-new GLS has raised the bar yet again as the largest and most luxurious SUV in the Mercedes-Benz lineup. The GLS is the S-Class among SUVs, combining sophisticated technology and impressive levels of standard equipment with comfort for up to seven passengers, agile dynamics and extensive safety systems. Mercedes has set the starting price for the 2020 SUV at $76,195 including destination charge.

For the first time, the new generation GLS is available with a six-seat option configuration that includes captain's chairs. Customers will now have the choice of either a three-seat rear bench seat or two individual seats with armrests in the second row.

With larger dimensions and more comfort than ever before, the Mercedes-Benz GLS offers three fully electrically adjustable seat rows, giving all passengers a generous amount of space and outstanding seating comfort.

The new GLS 450 4MATIC boasts additional standard equipment, a new 3.0L Inline-6 Turbo engine with EQ Boost and the latest technological innovations from Mercedes-Benz.

The 2020 GLS benefits from a progressive interior design that includes a new- generation steering wheel with Touch Control Buttons, two grab handles on the center console, a widescreen dual display with a 12.3-inch Digital Instrument Cluster and 12.3-inch multimedia display with touchscreen, a new-generation Touchpad in the center console, and new 64-Color Ambient Lighting.

With the new generation, customers also have newly available options to personalize the interior with available Executive Rear Seat Packages, open-pore trims and up to 5-zones of climate control.

The GLS 450 4MATIC features a new in-line six-cylinder engine, intelligently electrified with 48-volt technology and an Integrated Starter Generator (ISG). The ISG is responsible for hybrid functions such as EQ Boost and energy recuperation, allowing for fuel savings that were previously only possible with high- voltage hybrid technology.

This engine produces 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, with a further 184 lb-ft of torque and 21 hp available via EQ Boost over short periods.
