About the GL (incl. GLS)

The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is the name that was given to the company’s range of full-size luxury SUV crossover vehicles made between 2006 and 2015. From 2015 onwards, the lineup was renamed “GLS,” so that might be the name that some people are more familiar with. It’s a large, family-friendly SUV layout with 3-rows of seating and a capacity of up to 7 people, and in terms of the wider Mercedes range, it is placed a step above the GLE models (formerly known as the M-Class before 2016).

The first-generation models were released in 2006, first debuting at the North American International Auto Show in that year. These models were powered by pleasing V8 gasoline engines, as well as a range of turbocharged V6 and V8 diesel engines. It was also built as an entirely AWD range, making use of Mercedes’ own 4MATIC technology, as well as their air suspension system which helps the ride to be smooth and comfortable.

In 2011, the company introduced the “Grand Edition” of the first-generation GL-Class model. The Grand Edition brought a redesigned bumper, taller front grille, larger AMG alloy wheels --- 20 inches as opposed to the standard 19 inches --- and a two-tone interior design.

The second generation was launched in 2013, and then facelifted in 2016, which was the point where the name changed from GL-Class to GLS, the now more familiar name for this family of full-size Mercedes-Benz SUVs. The second generation brought some nice additions, including more advanced adaptive air suspension, soft-close doors, 21-inch wheels, and even infotainment displays for the rear seats.

The 2013 model was also marketed as offering some off-road capability with the addition of the optional off-road package: skid plate, low-range gearbox, increased ride height. This corresponded with more drivers in the European market hailing from rural and suburban areas where such features were actually very useful and popular.
