What powers the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLS?
There are two engine options available for the GLS, and which one you get depends on the trim level you choose. The GLS 450 comes with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder that kicks out an amazing 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, while the GLS 580 has a 4.0-Liter V8 that pumps out a pavement-pounding 483 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. These engines pair with a smooth sailing nine-speed automatic transmission and an exclusive Mercedes-Benz’ 4MATIC® all-wheel-drive system. A high-performance AMG® GLS 63 packs a punch with 603 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque. We love all the power and prowess the GLS provides, and we know you will too!
What can you tell me about the features of the GLS?
Quite a bit! The GLS comes with two amazing trim levels that provide a ton of tech and luxury features. Included on both trims is the MBUX infotainment system, which comes with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, Burmester audio system, nine USB ports spread throughout the cabin, and a wireless charging pad. Also coming standard is LED lighting and keyless entry. With the GLS comes many advanced safety systems such as blind-spot monitoring, active brake assist, and active parking assist with a surround-view camera. Both trims come with seating for seven passengers and the option of second-row captain’s chairs at no extra cost!
Can you talk about some of the GLS packages?
In addition to the insane number of features that the GLS offers, many optional packages add even more exclusive features to the mix. First, there is the Convenience package that has four-zone climate control, heated and ventilated front seats. The Driver Assistance Package Plus adds to this with adaptive cruise control, active lane-change assist, lane-keeping assist, and cross-traffic alert. Finally, the Executive Rear Seat Package Plus has heated and ventilated rear seats and a rear wireless charging pad. There is even an E-Active Body Control system, a stand-alone option, and swaps the GLS air suspension for a trick active suspension that uses a camera to scan the road ahead.
