From style to innovation, leadership runs in its family.
The GLS is engineered and equipped to set the bar for 7-passenger luxury SUVs. Its legacy of leadership includes benchmarks like the S-Class sedan and iconic G-Class. And it’s eager to lead your family anywhere in bold and brilliant style, from it LED lighting, to wheels from 20 to 22 inches, to a body that’s at once muscular and aerodynamic.
Luxury at the forefront. In all three rows.
Heated power front seats. A second row that reclines. And a power-folding third row with adult-sized comfort. No matter where you take a seat in the GLS, the GLS takes you to a place where leadership is omnipresent: in roominess, in refinement, and in its rewards. Available innovations range from massaging front seats to a vast Panorama roof.
Lighting that’s designed to get noticed.
Expressively elegant headlamps draw more than admiring eyes: their LED Daytime Running Lamps help other drivers take notice of your approach. Available Active LED High Performance headlamps cast brighter beams, and adapt to curves and oncoming traffic. And the wide taillamps include LED brake and turn signal lamps.
Easy to enter, even nicer to stay.
Large side doors and innovative EASY-ENTRY 2nd-row seats welcome up to seven adults to three rows of luxury seating, including a spacious third row. The standard power liftgate, power-folding third row and 60/40-split second row accommodate up to 2,300 litres of cargo. In any configuration, the GLS has an extraordinary capacity to satisfy.
Instant response, lasting benefits.
Responsive V6 and V8 biturbo engines make more power torque from less gasoline, with advanced Direct Injection and multispark ignition that self-tune every few milliseconds. Along with as many as nine paddle-shifted speeds, DYNAMIC SELECT lets you choose a driving mode to match your mood, from Comfort to Sport or even one for slick surfaces.
Rewarding handling, reassuring control.
Standard 4MATIC all-wheel drive instantly sends power to the wheels that can use it best, inspiring confidence in any season. The 4-wheel AIRMATIC suspension adapts to changing roads and cargo loads, enhacing driving control and passenger comfort. Innovative options include the roll-taming ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM and a rugged Enhanced Towing Package.**
Commanding performance, crafted by hand.
There’s simply no other 7-passenger SUV like it, from its handcrafted 577-hp biturbo V8 to its exquisite Nappa leather. Its AIRMATIC-based AMG Sport Suspension and ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM tame corners. AMG Performance 4MATIC expertly sends its 561 lb-ft of torque to all four 21- or 22-inch AMG wheels and brings SUV performance to a pinnacle.***
Intelligent Drive: Virtual eyes on the road. Real action on your behalf.
A team of advanced technologies boost safety, reduce stress, and help to smooth every move. Radar-based Active Brake Assist can help you avoid a collision. Innovations help fend off crosswinds and prepare for front, rear and rollover accidents. Available Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC cruise control includes advanced Active Steering Assist, too.****
Reaches far and wide, brings it all home.
The COMAND system’s big 8-inch central screen unites entertainment, navigation, driving systems and vehicle settings with clear, colourful animated menus and an intuitive touchpad controller on the console. Choose from two custom-tailored audio systems crafted expressly for the GLS: one by harman/kardon and one from Bang & Olufsen.*****
First-rate enjoyment for 2nd-row passengers.
A pair of sizable and sharp flat screens behind each front head restraint give your 2nd-row passengers a front-row seat for DVD movies, game play and more. Multiple inputs, two remotes and two DVD players let passengers enjoy themselves individually or together, with audio played via two wireless headsets or the GLS sound system.

**No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome the laws of physics or correct careless driving. Please always wear your seat belt. Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions. Best performance in snow is obtained with winter tires.

****Active Brake Assist may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. It does not react to certain stationary objects, nor recognize or predict the curvature and/or lane layout of the road or every movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver’s responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the system’s alerts before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely. See Operator’s Manual for system’s operating speeds and additional information and warnings. Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC adaptive cruise control is no substitute for active driving involvement. It does not adapt cruising speed in response to stationary objects, nor does it predict the curvature and lane layout of the road ahead or the movement of vehicles ahead. Steering Pilot requires driver to hold steering wheel and be ready to steer vehicle at any time. It may not recognize lane markings in some lighting, weather and road conditions. It is the driver’s responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the system’s alerts before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely.
*****While the navigation system provides directional assistance, the driver must remain focused on safe driving behavior, including paying attention to traffic and street signs. The driver should utilize the system´s audio cues while driving and should only consult the map or visual displays once the vehicle has been stopped in a safe place. Maps do not cover all areas or all routes within an area.
