The 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLS Gets Some Work Done With Better Features
The 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class is sporting a new look for the upcoming model year. The big and bold posh SUV brings on some stunning features from the inside out. This is all part of the brand’s mid-cycle refresh, allowing it to be deemed a worthy competitor against the updated BMW X7 and the Land Rover Range Rover.
The GLS crew has a load of models to choose from, like the Benz-branded 450 and 580. There’s also the GLS 63, which is known to be a high-performance model, as well as the ultra-ritzy Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600. All of these cars get mild revisions in their design, with the 450 and 580s the most significant receiving a more prominent grille.
Each new model brings a pair of tweaked taillights with three unique blocks. There are also two new paint colors: Twilight Blue Metallic and MANUFAKTUR Alpine Grey. The GLS 63 and GLS 600 also have 23-inch wheels available, with the 63 model including red-painted brake calipers.
The cabin is supplied with new leather options, from Catalana Beige and Bahia Brown/Black to Crystal White and Silver Gray Pearl, along with Mahogany Brown and Macchiato Beige. Other trim choices include dreamy Brown Linden Wood and MANUFAKTUR Piano Lacquer Flowing Lines. The latter was only available on the ever-pricy Maybach model in the previous GLS.
This 2024 lineup brings with its new steering wheels with touch controls on the spokes. The mid-cycle revamp also tacks on the updated version of the Mercedes MBUX infotainment system, which has new display designs and some cool, distinctive layouts for the AMG®.
Every trim has some new standard feature. For instance, each 63 model now has automatic high beams, heated and ventilated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, and a performance exhaust.
It appears that the new GLS AMG® and Maybach models won’t receive any powertrain changes, however, the GLS 450 and GLS580 will. The former gets a slight boost in the output from 362 to 375 horsepower and the 580 gets a rise from 483 to 510 horses. The revisions to the AMG® involve its air suspension and its anti-roll system, with the company specifying a software update and other improvements meant to boost the gap between cozy and sporty.
The Off-Road Engineering package can now be geared on Mercedes-Benz GLS 580. This kit comes with underbody protection and a reworked air suspension, which can increase the ride an extra 1.2 inches for better ground clearance.
The 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLS class will hit North American dealerships later this year. Though details on pricing aren’t available just yet, it’s expected that the base GLS 450 will start close to $85,000 (plus destination fee), while the AMG® GLS 63 and Maybach GLS 600 will go for near $150,000 (plus destination fee) and $175,000 (plus destination fee), respectively.
