History of Mercedes-Benz GLS400d AMG Premium
The Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, originally known as Mercedes-Benz GLS400d, has been manufactured by Mercedes-Benz since 2006 and is a full-size luxury SUV. This three-row and 7-seater vehicle is the SUV equivalent of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The GLS shares the GLE-Class with the same unibody architecture. The majority of GLS-Class vehicles are assembled at the Mercedes plant in Alabama, with the exception of a limited number of production vehicles produced in Germany at the beginning of 2007.
During the 2006 North American International Auto Show, they launched the X164 GL-Class. Meanwhile, the first-generation model (X164) was produced and replaced by the new GL-Class generation in 2012. The engine range consists of V8 petrol engines as well as V6 and V8 turbocharged diesel engines.
A high-performance GL63 AMG version, powered by the hand-built M157 engine, was also introduced in the second generation model. It was renamed the GLS-Class after a 2016 facelift to comply with the new Mercedes-Benz naming scheme. The modification also featured minor exterior and interior design changes and performance improvements.
At the 2019 New York International Auto Show, the 3rd generation model debuted. In late 2019, the first Mercedes-Maybach SUV version, the Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 4MATIC model, was launched. The wheelbase is almost one inch wider and 2.3 inches longer. It will use the same technology as the newest GLE with MBUX and dual 12.3-inch screens as well as E-Active Body Control and car-to-X communication. Shinier headlamps and taillamps are added to its interior.
If your goal is traveling a big family in great comfort then GLS is the right pick. GLS Class is known as a large and luxurious SUV with a load of power, a pleasant ride, and a world-class interior. Its largest market since 2006 is consistently in the US.
