2019 Mercedes GLS Specs, Release Date and Price
Rumors about the 2019 Mercedes GLS are countless and one of them said that it could be released as Maybach which means a luxury topping SUV model that will face the market competition with the Bentley Bentayga, Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic and the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. It is because the company has a big target to market growth and they will reach some markets including North America, Russia and China. Even it will enter the market with potential customers who do not mind to spend their money for this luxury car.
It will be constructed based on the third generation of the GLS platform with the extended wheelbase. The style will remind you to the Maybach 6 Coupe displayed at Pebble Beach Concourse show in 2016. Likely, 2019 Mercedes GLS will be completed with unique front grille as well as headlamp and tail lamp arrangement. The weight will be kept to a minimum with a big help of lightweight materials such as aluminum, high strength steel and composites including carbon fiber.
The extended wheelbase will bring positive impact to the cabin which means it will be more spacious compared to the previous model even if it is designed with two rows of seating. It is quite promising to come out as the new 2019 Mercedes GLS with the super luxurious interior, high-grade leather and wood trim accents to give harmony and luxury touch to the cabin.
