The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS


Find the Forthcoming 2017 GLS SUV at Mercedes-Benz of Chicago Near Oak Park

Promising potent performance and trademark interior luxury, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS is this model year’s replacement for the GL SUV. Chicago and Oak Park drivers will love its choice of engines, in-cabin spaciousness, and vast array of safety features. The team here at Mercedes-Benz of Chicago couldn’t be more excited to showcase the luxurious GLS in our new SUV lineup!

2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS

Range of Powerful Engines

For the 2017 model year, Chicago and Oak Park Mercedes-Benz GL fans can expect a stronger blend of performance and comfort. The GLS 450 4MATIC® and GLS 550 4MATIC® get a 362-hp biturbo V6 engine and a 449-hp biturbo V8 engine, respectively. Meanwhile, the anxiously awaited Mercedes-AMG® GLS 63 will house a rip-roaring 577 hp and 562 lb-ft of torque. In addition to the gas-powered engines, car shoppers will have the option of a 255-hp V6 diesel engine for fantastic fuel-efficiency, and a whopping 455 lb-ft of torque. Upon its release, the GLS will feature a standard 9G-TRONIC® automatic transmission (7-speed automatic for the Mercedes-AMG® GLS 63), and AIRMATIC® air suspension with ADS PLUS.

Interior Comforts and Entertainment

Expertly crafted and spacious, the interior of the upcoming GLS seats seven passengers, and complements the exterior’s pure SUV look and feel. Offering a variety of cabin trims and accents, the GLS adapts to your unique style preferences. What’s more, the GL SUV’s generous elbow and headroom carries over to the 2017 GLS, while the configurable seats and accommodating cargo area make transporting shopping bags, furniture, or luggage a cinch. For added convenience and entertainment, the cabin will also include the following:

  • Nappa leather-wrapped 3-spoke multi-function steering-wheel
  • 8-inch COMAND® display with a touchpad controller
  • Multi-color ambient lighting
  • Mercedes-Benz mbrace® Connect Package
  • Available air purification system

Intelligent Passive and Active Safety

The 2017 GLS combines passive and active safety systems, as well as standard driver assist tech, for maximum occupant protection. Strategically designed crumple zones and body structuring direct crash energy away from the passenger cell, while multiple airbags provide thorough protection inside the cabin. Brake Assist, COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS®, 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive with 4ETS®, and other standard systems work to stabilize the GLS and keep you out of harm’s way. Tacking on the available LED Intelligent Light System and MAGIC VISION CONTROL® enhances visibility at night or during rainy or snowy Chicago weather, while the optional Driver Assistance Package gets you:

  • DISTRONIC PLUS® with Steering Assist
  • PRESAFE® Brake with pedestrian detection
  • BAS® PLUS with Cross-Traffic Assist
  • Active Blind Spot Assist
  • Active Lane Keeping Assist
  • Speed Limit Assist
