How much do you weigh? How much do your family members and friends weigh? These numbers should make you realize that a sedan or coupe just doesn’t quite cut it when you need to travel with them tagging along. What you need is something bigger—something that has the guts to pull your combined body weights and still look powerfully graceful. With that mind, we humbly present to you the latest in Mercedes-Benz’s luxury line of SUV’s—the 2012 GL-Class.
Set to have a heart similar to the ML-Class, the new GL-Class is very much still sitting in its conceptual stages. Power looks to be promising with Mercedes-Benz’s MOVE technology—cutting edge direct injection V6 and twin turbo V8 engines. Actual figures are still shrouded in mystery though, until Mercedes-Benz decides to make things public.
Style-wise, the new GL-Class is expected to retain some of its predecessor’s lines, although the extensive camouflaging up front and on the sides suggest major distinctions. The grille seems to have at least two to three bars, a lot less than the current GL, or perhaps the gaps have been widened for better airflow. Headlights look pretty much unique, and so do the taillights which have been repositioned on the tailgate area.
Other than, the new GL looks entirely promising. Bet your cards we’ll be here to update you as soon as Mercedes-Benz releases official information to the press.
