So let’s things off with the engines There are three powerplant for the X166, one diesel and two petrol which also make up for GL-Class variants. All engines now standard with the ECO Start/Stop for economy reasons.

The first is the GL 350 4MATIC that is powered by a 3.0 V6 BlueTEC diesel engine. The oil produces 258 hp at 3,600 and a torque of 620 Nm at to 2,400 rpm.

And then, we have the GL 500 4MATIC that uses a 4.6 litre V8 BlueDIRECT engine. The turbocharged generates 435 hp at 5,250 rpm with a of 700 Nm at 1,800 to 3,500 rpm.

The GL 0-100 km/h is timed at 5.4 and is capable of reaching speeds of up to 250 Posted economy figures, in NEDC consumption combined, is l/100km and 262-269 g CO2/km, is 18% better than its predecessor.

most powerful GL-Class is the GL 63 The 5.5 litre V8 Biturbo block lives between the grille and the produces 557 hp at 5,250 to 5,750 rpm a torque of 760 Nm at 2,000 – 5,000

The GL 63’s performance figures are as impressive: 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and a top speed (electronically of 250 km/h. As for its fuel consumption, SUV 12.3 l/100km and emits 288 g which all things considered is quite respectable.

Three is mated the AMG SpeedShift Plus It is a seven-speed gearbox that a fuel-economy torque converter mass-damper pendulum, low-friction and thermal management for the transmission The gearbox is also capable of double-declutching when downshifting. is delivered to all four wheels an autonomous transfer case at a ratio of 40:60.

The highlight of the gearbox is its drive specifically the Controlled Efficiency or Selecting this mode automatically activate the ECO start/stop, halts the engine when the SUV to a standstill. ‘C’ also sets the softer, the gearbox shift and launch the vehicle in second

Because having a permanent 4WD isn’t enough, the SUV gets the AMG Control sports suspension Airmatic package – including air special spring struts and ride height adjustment. The also gets the Adaptive System (ADS) and is partnered the Active Curve System stabilisation.

What makes the GL a off-road vehicle is the aptly ONOFFROAD package. On top of the four-wheel 4MATIC, the package also driving-off assistant, Downhill Regulation (DSR) and off-road programs.

There are six programs to from – Automatic, Offroad 1, 2, Winter, Sport and Trailer. mode covers everyday Offroad 1 and 2 is used on off-road Winter gives more for icy conditions, Sport is selected for on the B-road and Trailer is selected you’re towing something.

The ONOFFROAD package also the underside with armour. is underrun protection for the engine and the paneling is fibre-reinforced. Also the package is a two-stage power with reduction gears, differential lock and extended function that gives a ground clearance of 306 mm and a wading of 600 mm.

All that driving-dynamic tech and is wrapped in a rather huge The new GL-Class is 21 mm longer, 14 mm wider and 10 mm than the last gen. brings the total length to mm, width to 1,934 mm and height to mm. The wheelbase did not grow when to the previous GL; it remains 3,075 mm As for the luggage compartment, you get 680 litres by Put all rear seats down seating formation is 2-3-2) and the expands to 2,300 litres.

In spite of all that, the GL-Class is than the last GL. The behemoth in at 2,455 kg, which is 90 kg less And yet, no amount of luxury has culled in the process.

Mercedes-Benz has kilos by using ‘weight-optimsed’ like plastic engine high-strength magnesium alloy cross beam, electric and new multilayer glass technology, also helps reduce Weight per axle is reduced by 18 kg by high-strength aluminium alloys.

It is too, no jest. Mercedes-Benz has unwanted gaps, redirected and used aerodynamically optimised to let the SUV sail through the air. The GL 350 achieves the best drag of cd = 0.35, the other two variants are of less the same.

Since is a Mercedes-Benz, luxury is not forgotten. In the GL’s innards are appropriately Trim can either be in wood or depending on how you’re like to it. Seats are wrapped in perforated man-made leather or you can also have multicontour leather seats for the driver and front

Another option to consider is the Olufsen BeoSound AMG High-End System. It comes with a W 14 high-end loudspeakers that is up to a Bang Olufsen ICE Power The salient point of the sound comes from its capability to for driving noises.

A microphone is in the overhead control panel picks up the sound, sends the into a digital sound and raises the volume for individual as and when needed. So one will have to endure the sound of tyres, wind, engine, and even rain when the is playing.

The Mercedes-Benz is also to the brim with safety It gets the usual ESP, ABS and Pre-Safe, as well as the Collision Assist and Attention Assist. standard are the Steer Control reduces driver strain and Assist that supports the during crosswinds situation.

The distance control Distronic braking assistant BAS Plus and the Pre-Safe brake comes as Another assist system on the list is the Active-Park assistant helps drivers detect a parking space and steers the GL into position.
