Mercedes-Benz’s New GLS Goes On A Hunt For The Perfect Mile

The freshest SUV in Mercedes‘ lineup is called the GLS and it’s the star of a new promo.

The footage brings the facelifted version of the GL to our attention after it premiered last month during the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show, in an attempt to tell us that it has what it needs to be posh, but can also cope with a semi-rugged terrain, despite its large footprint.

If the GLE’s large brother has convinced you to place a deposit, then you should know that it starts from £69,100 ($103,157) in the United Kingdom, where the automaker has announced its price list. For the money, customers will get the GLS 350d AMG Line, with a 3.0-liter V6 diesel rated at 258PS (254hp) and 620Nm (457lb-ft) of torque, connected to a 9-speed gearbox.

Pay £102,330 ($152,765) and you can have the range-topping version GLS 63 AMG, powered by an updated 5.5-liter V8 bi-turbo with 585PS (577hp) and 760Nm (561lb-ft) of torque, mated to a revised 7-speed transmission. North America will also get the GLS 450, with a 3.0-liter V6 turbo too, producing 367PS (362hp) and 500Nm (369lb-ft), along with the 449hp GLS550 4MATIC
