The market for SUVs really started to take off in the mid-2000s, and Mercedes-Benz did not want to be left out. They already had a formidable lineup of cars, as well as the M-Class, with the G-Class taking care of the ‘proper’ off-road segment. In 2006, they introduced their second SUV, the GL-Class which debuted at the 2006 North American International Auto Show and was their first full-size seven-seat SUV. The second generation entered in 2013 and was renamed GLS-Class during its 2016 facelift, as Mercedes-Benz wanted the model to represent ‘the S-Class of SUVs’. The third generation entered stage right in 2020, and here we are with this 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS450 4MATIC in our inventory. It’s got 22,000 miles on the clock and comes from Texas, making it the ideal family car if you’re in the market for a German SUV.
The third generation was revealed to the public at the 2019 New York International Auto Show and launched a few months later. It was larger than the second-generation in length, width, and wheelbase. This 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS450 4MATIC wears a subtle Designo Diamond White Metallic paintwork that will let you go about your business in an unobtrusive fashion. It rolls on a set of blacked-out five-spoke 21-inch Mercedes-Benz alloys wrapped in Michelin Primacy tires. The roof offers a panorama sunroof for enjoying those sunny days or starry skies. The Increased Towing Capacity with Trailer Hitch package is also installed. The interior is in Expresso Brown with Magma Gray leather and Natural Grain Brown Walnut Trim. Whilst the GLS-Class is commonly specced as a seven-seater, this one is specced in the rarer six-seat configuration that features two individual Captain’s Chairs in the second row. You could also fold the third row of seats, giving you a spacious four-seater with superb luggage space. All-season rubber floor mats are included for the occupants to place their feet on. The Convenience Package is installed, which adds four-zone climate control, heated and ventilated seats and powered side-window blinds. Heads-Up Display, Parktronic with active parking assist and the full Mercedes-Benz infotainment system with Apple Carplay are present as well, and your tunes will sound sublime through the Burmeister sound system.
This 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS450 4MATIC packs the entry-level powertrain but don’t let that fool you, as its 3.0L (183ci) in-line six-cylinder biturbo engine puts out 362hp and 369lb.ft with the aid of the EQ-Boost 48V mild hybrid system. Drive is sent to all four wheels (hence the 4MATIC moniker) through a 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission. Large, ventilated disc brakes all round ensure that the stopping power matches the go-factor, and height-adjustable air suspension is on board too.
