Mercedes to Reveal facelifted GL-Class and production ML450 Hybrid in New York

The 2009 New York International Auto Show that will be open to the public April 10-19, will host the world debut of three new Mercedes-Benz models. Aside from the E63 AMG uber sports sedan that you can check out here, the German automaker will also premiere the restyled 2010 GL-Class SUV and the production version of the ML450 HYBRID. Also on show will be the 2010 model year E-Class Sedan and Coupe, both of which are making their debut in North America.

Though Mercedes has not released any photos of the 2010 model year GL-Class, the German automaker did reveal that the renamed GL350 BlueTEC and GL450 are distinguished by their restyled grille, bumpers, wheels and new lights, including LED taillights. As for the GL350 BlueTEC which replace the current GL350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY, Merc said that it boast lower exhaust emissions as well as 20-30 percent better fuel economy.

The production version of Mercedes’ ML450 HYBRID combines an electric motor with a 3.5-liter V6 engine for a total output of 335HP offering improved fuel efficiency over the full-size ML550. Like the Prius, the ML450 HYBRID can operate -at low speeds- as a zero-emission vehicle when powered by its electric drive alone.
