History of Mercedes-Benz GLS450 AMG Luxury
The Mercedes-Benz GLS450 AMG Luxury is part of the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, manufactured by Mercedes-Benz since 2006, and is a full-size luxury SUV. This three-row, 7-seat vehicle is the SUV equivalent of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, sharing the same unibody architecture with the GLE-Class.
The majority of GLS-Class vehicles are assembled at the Mercedes plant in Alabama, with the exception of a limited number of production vehicles manufactured in Germany in early 2007. During the 2006 North American International Auto Show, the X164 GL class was introduced.
The first-generation model (X164) has been in production ever since and was replaced by the new GL-class generation in 2012. Its engine lineup consists of V8 gasoline engines and V6 and V8 turbodiesel engines.
The GLS-Class is now in its third generation, unveiled at the 2019 New York International Auto Show. It uses the same technology as the current GLS with MBUX and two 12.3-inch screens and E-Active Body Control and Car-to-X communication.
Produced for a large family that wants to travel in comfort, the GLS-Class is a large and luxurious SUV with plenty of power, a pleasant ride, and a quality interior. Since 2006, its biggest market has been the USA.
