Mercedes GLS 2020 - a response to BMW X7

GLS is like a zoom out version of GLE with almost the same design style, confronting the competitor of BMW X7 in the big-sized SUV segment.

Ahead of New York Automobile Show (April 19-28) which is going to take place in the United States, very first images of the new generation of Mercedes GLS made its debut. There are few changes in appearance of the largest SUV model of the German brand but it is a complete change in the interiors.

The new generation of GLS has a wheelbase of 3,137 mm, around 60 mm longer than the old generation and a bit longer than that of BMW X7 in the full-sized SUV segment. Being a large-sized three-seat-row model, GLS is loyal to the philosophy of unisex design of the manufacturer, showing no angels like its competitor. However, Mercedes still has a way to create masculine substance for GLS by using chrome coated metal bars, sporty disc wheel and bumpers.

To find the link between GLS and GLE, the interior is a hyphen. Mercedes’ large SUV replicates its juniors' design style. The car has an extended entertainment screen and a technical specification clock. Touchpad, air conditioner cavity are bold with GLE mark.

According to Carscoops, Mercedes GLE 2020 provides users with many driving options. The 48 V power system integrated with the engine also appear on this model. An AMG version with a dual 4-liter V8 turbocharged engine is more likely to appear. All engine configurations come with a 9-speed automatic transmission.

More details about Mercedes GLS will be available when the car makes the first public appearance on April 19. This model is also distributed in Vietnam at a price of VND 4.209-7.829 billion. BMW X7 rivals are about to return to Vietnam when dealers start taking customers' deposits.
