Wald Releases Black Bison Package for the Mercedes-Benz GLCGiancarlo Perlas July 22, 2018
The Japanese tuner Wald International just unveiled its latest body kit for the Mercedes-Benz GLC. The product is a part of the company’s Black Bison lineup.
Previously, Wald released its Black Bison body kit for the Mercedes-AMG GT S featuring subtle enhancements in the visuals and aerodynamics of the sports car. No changes in the interior, as well as the engine configurations, were given to the high-performance vehicle though. The S-Class, A-Class and other trims of the AMG GT also benefitted with the same package in the past. This is the case with the GLC too.
What the Wald specialists did to the sport utility vehicle was they gave it a sportier look. The Black Bison kit provides the GLC with revised bumpers complete with a new mesh design. Then, it reworks the side skirts and rear apron encasing the quadruple exhausts of the auto.
The front spoiler of the GLC, in particular, gets an F1-inspired styling that is elevated slightly in the middle. However, the said element is a mere cosmetic enhancement, and it does not offer any significant improvements in the aero of the unit.
The most noticeable change in the GLC is its front grille. Wald adopted the Panamericana grille design with vertical slats similar to the GLC 63 of AMG.
Lastly, the GLC is fitted with a set of wheels tailored by Wald. The company offers two choices for the wheel designs of the SUV.
The Black Bison customization is available starting in the 2016 models of the GLC, and it is compatible with the GLC Coupe as well. Sadly, the body kit is only exclusively sold by Wald Great Wall of China. That means only the Chinese-made 2.0-liter-equipped units of the SUV will benefit from it.
