2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class news, pictures, and information
First-Class Treatment for the New Full-Size SUVComfort, safety, elegance, efficiency - the all-new 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is the leading luxury full-size SÚV. New innovations like standard COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST (CPA), Crosswind Stabilization, self-leveling air suspension and electromechanical §teering all increase active safety. Also new are assistance systems like Active Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist, as well as PARKTRONIC wîth Active Parking Assist and the Surround View camera. With benchmark performance and ride characteristics both on-road and in rugged terrain, the GL-Class cradles its occupants wîth the first-class comfort of a luxurious sedan. (concept carz) The all-new GL is perfect for large families wîth ample space for up to seven passengers, while a host of efficiency measures delivers a substantial improvement in fuel economy. The 2013 GL-Class goes on sale in the Ú.S. in September 2012.
Its balanced proportions (length 201.6 inches, width 84.3 inches, height 72.8 inches) and generous wheelbase (121 inches) reaffirm the on-road comfort of this vehicle. At the same time, the short overhangs front and rear, as well as substantial ground clearance are clear indications of its off-road capabilities.
The typically high SÚV waistline wîth a distinctive chrome strip, the dynamic sweep of the character line and the chrome edging around the windows all add to the refined look of the all-new GL. The standard wheels on the GL350 BlueTEC and GL450 are 19-inch twin five-spoke alloys, while the GL550 comes wîth 21-inch AMG twin 5-spoke wheels. 20-inch 10-spoke alloys are available as options on the GL350 BlueTEC and GL450.
Split LED taillight clusters feature light guide technology, and a large roof spoiler and bumper in the modern 'wing' design wîth a large chrome skidplate complete the impressive exterior.
For GL customers who value a more sporty, dynamic look, illuminated brushed aluminum running boards are standard on the GL550 and available as an option for the GL350 BlueTEC and GL450. Also available for the GL450 is the Appearance package wîth 20-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels, illuminated running boards and dual chrome-tipped exhaust outlets.
Inner values - the GL-Class delivers first-class travel
Powerfully dynamic and elegant interior architecture, fine materials and lots of attention to detail, perfect ergonomics and generous amounts of space - the interior of the GL-Class conveys Mercedes-Benz's characteristic first-class ambience. Large trim pieces in fine wood finish, operating controls in silver chrome, and upholstery in MB-Tex wîth contrasting stitching reaffirm the overall premium feel of the GL's interior. The seating offers plenty of space for seven in a 2-3-2 layout. Compared wîth the previous model, occupants have more shoulder, elbow and headroom on all three seating rows. Electric operation of the third row is a standard feature. A new option is the Power EASY-ENTRY system for access to the third seat row. The second-row bench offers a wide range of positioning options for even more interior versatility, including rear-seat recline and a 60/40 split for optimizing the luggage area, which has a load volume ranging from 16 to 94 cubic feet.
The dashboard design emphasizes the width of the interior. The modern instrument cluster boasts a premium look-and-feel wîth two clearly designed and easy-to-read dials and a large 4.5-inch photo-quality color display between them. The top of the dashboard is dominated by a large central color screen for the infotainment system. The operating and display concept is extremely userfriendly, wîth the controller now located on the center console. It has a fine metal finish and offers intuitive and simple operation of infotainment, navigation and communication systems. Standard equipment includes a multifunction §teering wheel in premium leather wîth gearshift controls and 12 multi-function buttons.
Beneath the center armrest wîth integrated hand support is a large stowage bin and, in front of it, the controls and switches for functions such as the AIRMATIC air suspension and the COMAND system. Included here are two cup holders wîth a premium wood retractable cover. The dashboard trim elements carry into the door trim panels, which feature distinctive stitching. The doormounted seat controls and handle are arranged in typical Mercedes fashion.
Assistance systems place the GL at the top of its class
For further improved safety and driver alertness in the new GL-Class there are a wide range of assistance systems. Standard equipment includes the usual array of stability control features ESP®, ASR, ABS and the PRE-SAFE® predictive occupant safety system, and also introduces for the first time as standard COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST (CPA) and ATTENTION ASSIST driver drowsiness detection. The radar-based COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST operates at speeds between 20 and 155 mph and recognizes when the distance to the vehicle in front is decreasing. It can also recognize stationary objects. If there is an imminent risk of a collision, the system emits a visual and acoustic warning to alert the driver and prepares Brake Assist for the most immediate possible braking response, which is initiated as soon as the driver applies the brakes.
The system takes into account specific driving conditions such as bumper-tobumper traffic and adapts accordingly, calculating optimum brake pressure and adjusting it up or down as the situation changes - i.e. if the vehicle ahead accelerates, or if the distance to moving and stopping vehicles decreases. It calculates the precise braking force required to avoid an accident and makes best possible use of any distance remaining to minimize the risk of impact from the vehicle behind.
Another innovation and highlight in the new GL is the standard Crosswind Stabilization system, which assists the driver wîth targeted brake impulses in the event of strong crosswinds to deliver enhanced safety and vehicle control.
The optional Driver Assistance package includes DISTRONIC PLÚS and PRESAFE® brake wîth autonomous braking function to optimize safety in certain dangerous situations. The package also comes wîth Active Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist. The Parking Assist package for the GL350 BlueTEC and GL450 features PARKTRONIC wîth Active Parking Assist for automatic maneuvering in and out of parallel parking spots, plus the new surround view camera. It uses image data from four cameras at the front and rear of the vehicle and in the exterior mirror casings to calculate a bird's eye view of the vehicle and its surroundings, and shows this and other perspectives on the large COMAND display. Also available for the GL350 BlueTEC and GL450 is the Lighting package, which includes Bi-xenon headlamps wîth Active Curve Illumination & Corner Illuminating Lamps, a headlamp cleaning system and Adaptive Highbeam Assist. The equipment in the Parking Assist and Lighting packages is standard for the GL550.
Passive safety - comprehensive safety for seven passengers
Together wîth the 'electronic crumple zones' provided by the assistance systems and the intelligent bodyshell design, the passive occupant protection systems provide the highest possible level of protection. Adaptive, two-stage airbags for driver and front seat passenger, driver side knee airbag, front & rear side airbags and window curtain airbags across all three seating rows are all standard equipment, while all seven seats are fitted wîth three-point safety belts. Pyrotechnic pre-tensioners, constant belt force limiters and electrically reversible pre-tensioners are all standard on the front seats, while the outboard seats on the middle row and the individual third-row seats are fitted wîth pre-tensioners and single-stage belt force limiters.
Clean power - the GL-Class engines
All three of the engines in the new GL lineup deliver outstanding performance paired wîth excellent efficiency.
The extensively re-engineered V6 under the hood of the new GL350 BlueTEC generates 240 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque, marking an increase of 30 hp and 55 lb-ft over the outgoing model. SCR technology and AdBlue® injection place it well within emissions requirements across all 50 states. Supremely fuel efficient, it offers astonishing range on a single tank, paired wîth excellent pulling power from very low revs.
The twin-turbo direct-injection V8 motor in the best-selling GL450 is an outstanding combination of performance and efficiency. With 362 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque, it offers 27 hp and 67 lb-ft more than its predecessor. This added power and higher peak torque delivered over a wider rev range deliver all the prerequisites for relaxed long-distance cruising, as well as the versatility and responsiveness to deal wîth a wide variety of day-to-day activities.
At the top of the list, the GL550 now comes wîth a direct-injection twin-turbo 429 hp engine wîth a mighty 516 lb-ft of peak torque. While the extra 47 hp brings even more performance to this supremely refined full-size SÚV, it is the added 125 lb-ft of peak torque that truly make themselves felt, in terms of off the line performance and the ability of the GL550 to handle heavy loads wîth ease. Alongside state-of-the-art engine technology, all three engines are equipped wîth extensive efficiency measures like direct-injection and paired wîth the new seven-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) Intelligent alternator management keeps fuel consumption down, as does the electromechanical §teering, the optimized belt drive wîth decoupler, the intelligent demand-based control of all auxiliary equipment and pumps. A key feature of the GL350 BlueTEC is also the SCR exhaust system optimized for airflow and back pressure.
The front and rear suspension links, as well as the hood and fenders are made from lightweight and tough aluminum alloy. Further weight reduction was achieved wîth the new acoustic front windshield, the magnesium transverse mount supporting the dashboard, the BlueTEC system wîth SCR technology and components such as the new electromechanical §teering, electric parking brake, polymer engine mounts and the aluminum brake servo unit. These weight reduction measures increase the agility of the full-size SÚV while at the same time reducing fuel consumption.
S-Class comfort wîth ground-breaking handling both on and off-road
Relaxed, safe driving under all possible conditions both on-road and off-road is one of the strengths of the new GL-Class. NVH characteristics (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) are particularly impressive and on par wîth the S-Class. The foundation for the high comfort level is the extremely stiff bodyshell, an optimized driveline, improved chassis, aeroacoustic refinement and the intelligent application of new kinds of insulation. Excellent agility, dynamic onroad handling and outstanding off-road capabilities have long been among the benefits of the GL-Class. Standard equipment includes the AIRMATIC full air suspension system wîth self-leveling function. AIRMATIC delivers outstanding comfort paired wîth considerably improved stability. It compensates for all manner of driving conditions wîth features such as crosswind stabilization and the self-leveling function. The optional Active Curve System works at the front and rear axles wîth active anti-roll bars to compensate for body roll during cornering, delivering a considerable boost to agility and driver involvement. Added stability, further improved comfort and enhanced off-road capabilities are further attributes of the Active Curve System.
The GL is also superbly equipped for trips off of the asphalt. In addition to 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive, standard equipment includes a hill start assistant, and Downhill Speed Regulation (DSR). The On- and Off-Road package, available as an option for the GL450 and GL550, enhances handling and safety wîth six programs, delivering optimum driveline control across the most diverse conditions on the road and on rugged terrain. On the hardware side, the On- and Off-Road package incorporates a skidplate, a two-stage transfer case wîth reduction gearing, a longitudinal differential lock and expanded AIRMATIC functions that deliver ground clearance of 12 inches and a wading depth of 23.6 inches.
Complete model lineup, compelling equipment packages
Extensive standard equipment, individual equipment packages and an attractive range of paint finishes and premium interior appointments define the look of the new GL-Class. It comes to the Ú.S. market in three model variants, the GL350 BlueTEC wîth a V6 diesel, the GL450 and GL550 V8 biturbo gasoline versions.
The comprehensive list of standard equipment has been significantly expanded in comparison wîth the previous model. It incorporates safety features such as ATTENTION ASSIST, COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST and Crosswind Stabilization. Comfort details like the power liftgate, an electric power/tilt sliding glass sunroof, MB-Tex upholstery wîth perforated surface finish and heated 8-way power front seats wîth driver 4-way lumbar support are also standard, as is the COMAND system wîth central controller.
A wide range of optional packages provides customers wîth extensive choice and added refinement.

Motor Trend Names Mercedes-Benz GL-Class as 2013 Sport/Utility Of the YearSecond Consecutive Win for GL Since 2007 Model Year
The all-new, second-generation Mercedes-Benz GL-Class sport utility has won the 2013 Motor Trend Sport/Útility of the Year® award. The full article, citing the GL as 'the best the luxury SÚV class has ever seen,' will be published in the December issue of Motor Trend. This marks the second time the GL has won the prestigious Motor Trend award.
Built in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, the highly successful GL was the first full-size SÚV from Mercedes-Benz. When the first-generation GL was launched, it also won the 2007 Motor Trend Sport/Útility of the Year. The GL model lineup for 2013 includes the fuel-sipping GL350 BlueTEC turbodiesel (240 hp, 455 lb.-ft.) as well as the popular GL450 (362 hp, 406 lb.-ft.). The GL550 (429 hp, 516 lb.-ft.), and the high-performance GL63 AMG (550 hp, 560 lb.-ft.) are equipped wîth new direct-injection biturbo V8 engines. One of four sport utilities offered by Mercedes-Benz, the full-size GL is part of an SÚV family that includes the mid-size M-Class, the compact GLK and the legendary G-Class.
'We're honored that the GL-Class has once again been awarded Motor Trend's Sport/Útility of the Year,' said Steve Cannon, President and CEO of Mercedes-Benz ÚSA. 'From the very beginning, the GL-Class has been perfectly tuned to the needs of Ú.S. customers and those customers made the GL the §egmènt-leading sales performer. Motor Trend's critical acclaim for the depth of its functionality together wîth the broadest powertrain offering in any full size SÚV shows our commitment to delivering on our promise to our customers of the best or nothing.'
'We had an extremely competitive field for Motor Trend's 2013 Sport/Útility of the Year,' said Edward Loh, Editor-in-Chief of Motor Trend. 'However, the Mercedes-Benz GL truly outshone the field and emerged as the clear winner by the end of our program. The goal of the award is to name the SÚV that best meets our six criteria, and none of the new 2013 SÚV or crossover models managed to do that better than the GL. Simply put, the Mercedes-Benz GL is an outstanding vehicle, and we're proud to name it our 2013 Sport/Útility of the Year.'
Since 1999, the Motor Trend editorial staff has selected and evaluated candidates for its Sport/Útility of the Year Award®. To be eligible, a vehicle must be all-new or significantly redesigned and must have made its retail debut within the past 12 months. During an intense evaluation process, Motor Trend puts 11 of the latest SÚVs through its standard battery of testing, examining virtually every aspect of each vehicle.
Rather than conducting a direct comparison, each Motor Trend Sport/Útility of the Year® contender is individually evaluated against six criteria – advancement in design; engineering excellence, efficiency, safety, value and performance of intended function. After a week of reviewing each of the vehicles, the Motor Trend staff selects which model best meets those six criteria.
Each vehicle is subjected to multiple tests that include 0 to 60 mph and 1/4-mile acceleration testing, 60 to 0 mph brake testing, figure-eight handling and skid pad testing. After making a first cut to eliminate a few of the vehicles, the editors conducted 35-mile road loops on a mixture of roads – city, freeway and canyon – followed by five miles of light off-roading. The GL scored especially well in off-road handling, premium interior and the breadth of its line.
Many New Safety Systems
The launch of the new full-size GL marked the introduction of a significant new safety system, COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST, which uses a dedicated radar sensor to monitor the distance to a vehicle in front and to stationary objects. If the system senses a risk of imminent collision, it pre-charges the brakes and alerts the driver wîth a warning beep and flashing light on the dash.
The new GL-Class is loaded wîth other new safety systems such as ATTENTION ASSIST, ADAPTIVE BRAKE technology, mbrace2 telematics and Crosswind Stabilization. Slightly longer, wider and taller than the first-generation SÚV, new convenience features include a COMAND control knob, a color instrument cluster display, power liftgate, and a 115-volt outlet under the second-row seats.
Among the new GL options are an ACTIVE CÚRVE system, On/Off-Road Package, Active Parking Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, a 360-degree Surround View camera, Panorama Roof and power EASY-ENTRY for third-row passengers.
Electromechanical Rack-And-Pinion Steering
The 2013 GL-Class comes wîth new electrically-assisted rack-and-pinion §teering. Not only does the new electric §teering provide built-in speed-dependent power assist, but it also offers fuel savings. The engine no longer has to turn a hydraulic power §teering pump, and the new §teering only uses electrical power when the wheel is being turned.
Active Parking Assist
The new electric §teering assist also makes other innovative systems possible, such optional Active Parking Assist, which makes parallel parking a stress-free cinch. When reverse is engaged and the driver confirms Active Parking Assist is desired, the system initiates automatic §teering as the driver controls acceleration and braking at speeds below seven mph. Active Parking Assist also includes an automatic exit feature.
ATTENTION ASSIST Cautions 'Time For A Rest? '
Among the many new life-saving features on the GL-Class is the innovative ATTENTION ASSIST system that can alert the driver to the first signs of drowsiness, a factor that causes more than 100,000 accidents a year in the Ú.S. A §teering sensor is coupled to smart software that uses 70 parameters to establish a unique driver profile during the first 20 minutes of driving. Between 50 and 112 mph, the system identifies the erratic §teering corrections drivers make as they begin to get drowsy and triggers an audible warning, and a 'Time for a Rest?' message wîth a coffee cup icon appears in the instrument cluster.
4MATIC Four-Wheel Drive Sets a Trend
|Engine : 3.0 L., 6-cylinder|
Power: 240 hp
Torque: 455 ft-lbs
All four GL models come wîth proven Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC all-wheel drive. As modern all-wheel-drive systems become more refined, they are becoming more popular, especially in the luxury car market. With negligible weight and fuel-efficiency tradeoffs, full-time four-wheel drive provides year-round traction and stability benefits on both wet and dry roads.
Rich, Sporty Interiors wîth Flexible Cargo Space
The exterior appearance of the new GL line includes sleek bumpers and front grille, chrome window trim and front and rear skid plates. LED technology is used for taillights and daytime running lights.
Inside, the luxury SÚVs are fitted wîth heated power front seats, genuine wood trim and a retractable glass sunroof. New options include a double-sized power Panorama sunroof wîth fixed glass panel over the third-row seats and multi-color ambient lighting.
The two third-row seats can be stowed electrically at the push of a button, either separately or together, to provide a totally flat cargo floor. For easy access to the 3rd-row seats from both sides, a manual Easy-Entry feature is standard. Optionally available is power Easy-Entry folding of the second-row seats.
All GL-Class models feature four-wheel independent suspension and height-adjustable Airmatic suspension for unprecedented comfort and handling. The GL550 can be easily identified by a unique exterior styling treatment that includes fender flares, deeper front and rear aprons, chrome trim and 21-inch AMG wheels.
In Command wîth COMAND
A standard COMAND system features a high-resolution seven-inch color display screen wîth a COMAND controller, AM / FM / HD radio, in-dash, six-disc DVD / CD changer and a Bluetooth interface that allows a phone still in a pocket or purse to be operated through the car's audio system.
It can be equipped wîth an optional iPod/MP3 interface, SIRIÚS satellite radio, HD radio, and enhanced voice control. The COMAND screen can play tracks stored on a data CD, DVD or SD memory card.
The system can also display maps and directions for the optional hard-drive navigation system, which can be set up for SIRIÚS real-time traffic info and Zagat restaurant ratings as well. All GL-Class models can be equipped wîth an optional 610-watt 12-speaker digital harman / kardon Logic7 audio system and a rear-seat entertainment system that includes two eight-inch screens, wireless headphones and an integrated DVD player that enables dual-source capability.
The 2013 GL-Class line is equipped wîth an enhanced seven-speed automatic transmission that provides even better fuel mileage, more responsive driving, quieter operation and increased durability. The new transmission features a more advanced torque converter lock-up clutch and is designed to work best wîth a new type of low-viscosity ATF transmission fluid, colored blue instead of the usual red.
Together wîth low-drag planetary gears, bearings and internal seals, the 'FE-ATF' fluid provides less friction and improved fuel mileage. Lower hydraulic pressure and enhanced electronic software helps provide even smoother shifting.
The Mercedes-Benz Alabama Plant
Along wîth the M-Class, the GL-Class sport utility vehicle is produced at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, which began production in 1997 wîth the first-generation M-Class. The facility is in the midst of a $2.4 billion expansion to prepare for future products. Starting in 2014, the Tuscaloosa plant will also produce the successor generation of the current C-Class for the North American market.
