2022 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class SUV Trims & Specs

For the time being, there is only one model in the GLS-Class range: the GLS 450. It is powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six engine that develops 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. Mercedes' renowned, smooth-shifting nine-speed automatic gearbox ensures effortless acceleration and the 4MATIC all-wheel drivetrain maximizes traction, even on poor-quality roads.

The GLS 450 is equipped with LED headlights and taillights, as well as LED daytime running lights, along with 20-inch alloy wheels. The cabin is well-appointed with synthetic leather upholstery, power-adjustable heated and ventilated front seats, quad-zone automatic climate control, and a sunroof. For the sake of convenience, the tailgate offers hands-free operation, while keyless entry, push-button start, and remote start are all standard. There is a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster with another 12.3-inch touchscreen display beside it for the infotainment and safety systems. These are extensive, to say the least, and a 13-speaker Burmester sound system ensures high-quality audio throughout the cabin.

If the standard offering isn't quite luxurious enough for you, genuine leather upholstery is available, along with heated and ventilated rear seats, a panorama roof, and even more advanced safety features, including Mercedes Pre-Safe Plus.

🚘What's the Price of the 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class SUV?

Currently, there is only one model in the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class SUV range. The GLS 450 has a starting price of $77,850, which is still quite a bit less than an S-Class sedan. By comparison, the base-level BMW X7 is slightly cheaper at $74,900. If you want a fully loaded GLS, expect to pay somewhere in the area of $100k, although the price of the GLS 580, when it's released later this year, is expected to be $101,250. These are MSRP figures and do not include miscellaneous fees or the $1,050 destination charge.

Additional Packages

There are a few ways to customize your GLS, both in terms of appearance and functionality. The AMG Line Package equips the SUV with 21-inch AMG wheels, AMG body styling and floor mats, a sport steering wheel, and brushed stainless steel pedals for $4,350. For an additional $400, the Night Package can be conjoined with the AMG Line to give the GLS gloss black exterior accents.

The standard sunroof can be upgraded to a panorama roof for $1,000. Inside, the six-seat layout can be added free of charge, while the Acoustic Comfort Package will cost $1,100 to ensure a quieter cabin. The Warmth & Comfort Package ($1,900) installs rapid heated for the second-row seats, along with heated front and second-row armrests.

🚗What 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class SUV Model Should I Buy?

Since we only have one model to choose from currently, it comes down to how you want to spec your GLS 450. The AMG Line is something you can overlook since the GLS is already quite an attractive car, and the larger 21-inch alloy wheels only hurt the ride quality. Inside, we do think the genuine leather upholstery is worth the minor increase in price and the six-seater layout is far more comfortable if you don't really need space for seven. In terms of packages, the Warmth & Comfort Package is definitely alluring, while the Driver Assistance Package Plus is a must. In this configuration, the GLS 450 will cost you $84,370 with the destination charge included. However, with its more potent twin-turbo V8 and access to more advanced features, the GLS 580 might be worth the wait until the second half of 2022.
