Mercedes' rollout of its new naming convention hits the outgoing GL-Class for the 2017 model year. The GL's name changes to GLS, representing the SUV-equivalent of the S-Class sedan and coupe in Mercedes' hierarchy of SUVs. In ascending order, the Mercedes' SUV lineup is now GLA, GLC, GLE, GLS and G. For 2017, the SUV also gets a light refresh. The seven-passenger, three-row GLS gets more than just an extra letter on the tailgate with updates aligning it with the styling and technology of recently introduced Mercedes cars and SUVs. New touches include an optional 8-inch media screen with touch-pad controller, refreshed front styling and a few extra ponies under the hood of some engines as well as a new nine-speed automatic transmission for non-AMG GLS models. Inside the GLS is the latest version of Mercedes’ 8-inch Comand media system (optional) and touch-pad. The GLS’ dashboard and center console are slightly redesigned to accommodate this big screen, though largely look unchanged. The cabin offers a robust list of available interior materials like leather, optional Nappa leather, wood and other materials in varying configurations and colors. Under the HoodNon-AMG engines see an increase of up to 20 horsepower for 2017 as the GLS550’s twin-turbocharged 4.7-liter is boosted from 429 to 449 hp. The 3.0-liter diesel gets a 15-hp increase as well to 255 hp, while the super-powerful AMG GLS63’s twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8 is increased 27 hp to 577 hp. CLEAN PA TITLE COME SEE IT TODAY!
