The 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

In 2007 Mercedes-Benz released the largest capacity vehicle the company had ever built: the GL-Class. With room for 7, this American-built SUV catered to the North American market by supplying a supremely well equipped luxury vehicle that could handle the demands of large families.

Since its release, the GL has been a resounding hit. With demand internationally creeping up, the GL has begun export to other countries while still being assembled right here in the U.S.A.

While international demand grew, the GL became a success domestically, exceeding sales of the Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator to be the best selling 7 passenger luxury SUV in the country, largely due to its incredible ride quality and refinement.

For 2013 that vehicle has been completely redesigned. The new GL brings updated styling, new technology, improved efficiency, and increased luxury to the segment it leads.

To start, the GL’s styling has become more bold, with exterior touches including LED headlights, sharper lines, and a more defined presence.

Technology has been increased with available mBRACE2, 360 degree camera systems, and power folding rear seats.

To add to the luxury, the interior has been refined with an updated COMAND controller and interface, higher end materials, and more spacious seating room.

All considered, the GL has been improved in every way possible, which is impressive based on the reception of the previous model. While we don’t currently have any in stock, expect vehicles available for test driving in the fall.
