GLS Diesel


 

Diesel Engine

The V6 diesel engine for the GLS offers the perfect solution to every need. What an auditory experience, what a soft, velvety way to deliver power. Itʼs enough to give even the most experienced automotive enthusiast goose bumps. This engine is just ideal for powering the SUV in the S-Class. This Mercedes that oozes self-assurance with every fibre of its being. Itʼs hard to describe the ease with which even such a large SUV accelerates, how smoothly each command to the accelerator pedal is obeyed. An incredible output of 190 kW (258 hp) and a peak torque of
620 Nm translates into almost inexhaustible reserves of
power in virtually any driving situation.

GLS Petrol

Petrol Engine 

The petrol variant comes geared with a turbocharged
V6 petrol engine with a cylinder angle of 60°. When
designing the engine particular importance was assigned
to compactness and low weight. In addition, friction was
reduced to an optimum to achieve lower fuel consumption
and consequently lower emission levels. The newly
developed on-demand vane-type oil pump cools and
lubricates the engine according to engine load and engine
speed. The flow control system distinguishes between a
low and a high pressure level and adjusts the volumetric
flow rate accordingly.

Output of 245 kW (333 hp) and peak torque of 480 Nm
 

GLS Transmission

9G-TRONIC Automatic Transmission

With nine forward gears, the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission introduces a whole new dimension of efficiency, comfort and dynamism. Its high efficiency helps to reduce fuel consumption. The wider ratio range allows a reduction in engine speed. Performance remains excellent while ride comfort is enhanced and noise levels are reduced. Smaller gear ratio increments and faster gear changes lead to even greater responsiveness and agility. At the same time, 9G-TRONIC impresses with smooth, barely perceptible gear shifting. As 9G-TRONIC is able to skip individual gears, multiple downshifts are possible for fast and powerful sprints.

DIRECT SELECT

Ergonomically designed and intuitive to operate, the DIRECT SELECT lever on the steering column allows the driver to set the automatic transmission positions P, N, R and D simply by giving it a light tap. The function commands are transmitted wholly electronically. Additional steering-wheel gearshift paddles also facilitate manual pre-selection of the seven gears, so drivers can decide whether they want to change gear themselves using the steering-wheel gearshift paddles or whether they prefer this to be taken care of automatically.

 

 



 

 

 

GLS Suspension

AIRMATIC Air Suspension
 

The basis for an extraordinary driving experience: working in concert with the 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive, the chassis and suspension enable the best possible traction and make for enhanced driving stability both on poor roads and in off-road use.


Improved comfort, Improved dynamism and Improved traction. Excellent handling on any surface – thanks to 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive in combination with ABS, ESP® and the electronic traction system 4ETS. On or off-road, in wet weather or slippery terrain: traction, driving dynamics and driving stability are improved.
 

GLS Dynamic Select

Dynamic Select   

Comfortable, sporty, winter-optimised or entirely individual suspension settings can be called up with the DYNAMIC SELECT Controller on the centre console. Harmonious and efficient driving is made possible by the “Comfort” transmission mode. “Sport” is characterised by a sportier configuration of the suspension, which has also been lowered by 15 mm, and sportily taut damper settings, in each case in conjunction with the AIRMATIC package, along with more directly responsive steering and modified shift points. The “Slippery” transmission mode provides optimised handling on slippery terrain, while “Individual” allows precise configuration of the various parameters to suit the driverʼs wishes.

  • GLS – Grand Edition

    GLS Class

    Charisma. Without any effort at all.

    Itʼs an art mastered by very few: the GLS commands its surroundings just by being there – and with an enticingly high-quality design. New features include the powerdomes on the bonnet and the filigree pattern of the radiator grille with its large three-pointed star. This three-dimensional effect is extremely complex to design and produce, but it is what gives the front end of the GLS its signature look.
