2012 GL Seen Testing In Sweden

Although the 2012 Mercedes-Benz GL has no official launch date yet, it has already been spotted a number of times in heavily disguised form. In previous settings, observers have deduced that the GL will share the platform of the ML, although in stretched-out form. Now, it has most recently been seen in Sweden, obviously for some hard-edged testing in snow and icy conditions. The spy pics show a wide grill inspired by the R-Class and a front end reminiscent of the current E-Class. Additionally, new headlights and LED daytime running lights can be seen on the bumper.

Mercedes-Benz did the right thing by informing the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (a.k.a.

So be warned and be safe. Your dealer should… Continue Reading »
