Although there will be changes on the upcoming 2018 Mercedes GLS, it won’t be major or grandeur. After all, the GLS has got the refreshment design for the 2017 model so it is pretty understandable if they aren’t going to do the same extravagant changes for the 2018 model. However, it is always nice to expect several improvements and developments for the new year’s model so what should you expect from the new crossover, after all?
Some of the changes happening to the new 2018 Mercedes GLS include possible new colors as well as the increased price tag. The name is also changing, if you haven’t taken a notice. This line is included in the GL-Class variant and now it becomes the GLS. Besides those previous changes mentioned before, powertrain will likely to change, which affects the fuel economy system.
Mercy has included this GLS development in their premium line, making this seven seater crossover a premium ride with a class of elegance and style. Since this line has to compete against Range Rover (Land Rover), QX80 (Infiniti), and Escalade (Cadillac), it is pretty understandable if Mercy is trying their best to improve this project and the design, making sure that the project is running slowly but successfully. After all, you will like the full size crossover with luxurious touch on it. No one will ever doubt the quality of Mercedes Benz, after all.
So, what can you expect from the new 2018 Mercedes GLS, after all? Well, it has a new designed grille that looks matching with the big Mercy logo. Not to mention that there will be broader tail and also reshaped headlamps. The dual exhaust pipe with deeper front fascia will certainly look great for the ride. If you look at the design, you will understand why such a vehicle has got a quite positive welcome and feedback.
It seems that Mercy will stay with the previous arrangement, using turbocharged machines with both diesel and gas types. Depending on the trim, you can choose which one you like the most, and all will be coming with simple stop and start system. This system will automatically turn itself off when stationary, improving fuel system. The GLS450 will be using V6 3.0 liter engine, delivering 362 hp, while theGLS550 will be using V8 4.7 liter engine, delivering 449 hp. The GLS63 will be using V8 5.5 liter engine, delivering 577 hp.
