Mercedes-Benz GLS Will Compete with X6

Clarissa June 22, 2011

After BMW sold 120,000 units of X6 since it launch in 2009, Mercedes-Benz is planning on making a model that will compete directly with it, which will be called Mercedes-Benz GLS.

The SUV, will take the some designs from the CLS four-door. Despite the details being on hold, an insider revealed to Auto Evolution that it could have the V6 engine that will perform at 306HP and the V8 with 435HP, these will be for the petrol version. Diesel versions could have 3.0L diesel or a hybrid oil-burner also on the E3000 model that will be presented in the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Mercedes-Benz GLS is set to be launched on 2014 after a company insider said last week, “After closely monitoring sales trends, we’ve concluded there is potential for an additional off-road model with a more sporting emphasis than the new M-class.”
