Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the GL-Class Grand Edition, which is launched as an exclusive and luxury specification detailed GL-Class for off-road terrain. The Grand Edition is even more visually expressive and with an even more elegant and comfortable interior.
This new special edition of the GL-Class off-roader comes as standard with a level of spaciousness and comfort that is on a par with a luxury saloon. Features reserved exclusively for the “Grand Edition” designation include special light-alloy wheels with 275/50 R 20 tyres, high-quality, two-tone leather seats in a new design, and wood trim in black ash.
Only available on the “Grand Edition” are door center panels, armrests and dashboard instrument panel with double-lapped felling, as well as trim and a wood/leather steering wheel in black ash.
Mercedes GL Grand Edition models are equipped with PARKTRONIC and any one of the available engines. The V6 diesel engine in the GL 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC utilizes highly efficient SCR exhaust gas technology, outputs 155 kW (211 hp) and delivers its maximum torque of 540 Newton meters at 1600 rpm. On average this engine consumes 9.0 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers. In the GL 350 CDI 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY, the V6 engine outputs 195 kW (265 hp) and generates torque of 620 Nm. It consumes 8.9 liters per 100 kilometers.
Superior power delivery and maximum smoothness are the particular benefits of the two petrol V8 models. These models also comply with the EU5 emissions standard. The 5.5-liter V8 engine in the GL 500 outputs 285 kW (388 hp) and delivers 530 Newton meters of torque. At 6.5 seconds, its acceleration time from a standstill to 100 km/h is almost worthy of a sports car. On the GL 450, the V8 petrol engine has a displacement of 4.6 liters, outputs 250 kW (340 hp) and generates maximum torque of 460 Newton meters. It takes 7.2 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h.
