December 1st, 2023 by


The Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 arrives with a brand-new refresh for the 2024 model year. The full-size luxury SUV features new styling as well as several performance enhancements. As of late, Mercedes has been focused on EVs having recently completed its first charging hub in the United States. This is just the beginning as the German automaker aims to build a network of charging stations throughout the southeastern US. Despite the larger focus on EVs, Mercedes is still improving its combustion engine lineup bringing us to the latest GLS 450. We’ll take a closer look at the three-row SUV and see what consumers can expect.

2024 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 Sees New Refresh

The 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 recently received a brand-new refresh. Mercedes updated the luxury SUV with a host of new features, such as new styling and performance upgrades. For styling, the GLS 450 sees a new grille design, a reworked front bumper, and new LED taillights. Inside, the full-size SUV sees a new steering wheel and additional interior color schemes. For performance, Mercedes has bumped up the SUV’s six-cylinder powertrain, offering owners 375 horsepower compared to the previous 362. All these changes provide the GLS 450 with a breath of fresh air while maintaining the same elegance and capability.

The addition of new exterior and interior elements heightens the 2024 GLS 450’s style, adding a deeper level of refinement. Owners will appreciate the refreshed design as it helps the luxury SUV stand out even more. Inside, owners will find a similar dashboard and layout as the previous model year, but with the help of new color schemes, there’s a more modern feel. Capable of seating 7, passengers will enjoy ample space even in the third row. For entertainment, there’s a 12.3-inch infotainment screen featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There’s also the choice between a 13-speaker surround sound stereo or a 26-speaker audio system.

Performance-wise, the Mercedes GLS 450 comes equipped with a turbocharged 3.0L inline-six engine now capable of 375 horsepower. Owners will enjoy the power and performance offered by the improved engine as it manages to hit 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds. Thanks to Mercedes’ E-Active Body Control, the full-size SUV is able to scan for bumps using a forward-facing camera and make proper adjustments to its suspension. This makes for a smoother driving experience. As for fuel economy, the GLS 450 sees 18 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. Starting at an MSRP of $87,000 (plus destination fee), the refreshed 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 proves to be an exceptional SUV with an added layer of refinement.
