Detailed information about GLS is currently kept confidential. According to Automotive News, the vehicles can be equipped with V8 engines with a capacity of over 560 horsepowers. Exterior design may be influenced by the Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury concept that was unveiled at the Beijing Auto Show in April 2018.

The big difference between Maybach GLS and other car models is the back seat row. In the image, it shows the back seat row of the Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury concept.
