New Mercedes-Benz GLS Laps The Nurburgring, Has A Drink After

After a long day of hard testing on the famous German track, this next-gen GLS was spied having a drink at the local bar… or gas station, to be precise
.

The prototype keeps some thick layers of camouflage on, so trying to spot some of the exterior changes is quite a challenge. Still, the only thing that tells us this is a regular model, and not the AMG version, is the missing Panamericana grille.

The 2019 GLS will gain a new interior with modern design incorporating the dual-screen layout that combines two 12.3-inch displays, alongside some other modern technology and a host of driving assistance features.

Underpinned by the MHA architecture, which is the foundation stone for the next-gen Mercedes-Benz GLE as well, the all-new GLS will have a larger footprint. In all likelihood, though, it will lose some weight, which should improved both driving dynamics and fuel consumption.

There’s no word on the engine range yet, but we expect a number of Merc’s six- and eight-cylinder units as well as a plug-in hybrid. The range-topping Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 will likely adopt the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine.

The German automaker should pull the cover off the third-gen GLS either at the end of the year or in 2019. Before it debuts, though, the automaker will preview the Maybach version with a concept at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show.
