These two engine blocks are paired with the nine-speed 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission system. Assembled by the hands of a master technician, the 5.5 L AMG® bi-turbo V8 engine generates 577 hp. This eight-cylinder engine works in sync with the seven-speed AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® PLUS 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission. The DYNAMIC SELECT gives you additional options for adjusting the gear ratios and other powertrain parameters. Despite having powerful capabilities, the turbo engines are quite efficient thanks to the ECO-START® technology. Engineered to optimize traction on multiple surfaces, the AMG® All-Wheel Drive (AWD) is standard on all models. Each GLS SUV is also capable of towing a trailer that weighs up to 7,500 pounds. When equipped with the AIRMATIC® suspension system, the vehicle won’t shake or swerve on rough surfaces. Additionally, the Adaptive Damping System makes minor adjustments in response to real-time conditions. The optional Active Curve System gives the car excellent cornering capabilities.
Linked to a memory function, the 10-way power driver’s seat in the Mercedes-Benz GLS delivers great ergonomics. Heating and ventilation are available for the comfortable front seats that are wrapped in premium upholstery such as genuine Nappa leather, which also covers the steering wheel. A climate control system with three zones maintains desirable temperature settings and air quality inside the vehicle’s lavish cabin. Featuring dual panes, the panoramic roof can be conveniently opened for some fresh air.
The Mercedes-Benz GLS comes with a freestanding 8-inch display that lets you access the signature COMAND® software. You have to use the touch pad and rotary knob to navigate the menus on the high-resolution screen. The COMAND® platform is synced with the mbrace® Connect suite that includes an array of applications such as GPS navigation and remote services. You’ll also get a subscription to SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link with the mbrace® & Connect plan. Entertainment options in the GLS SUV include HD Radio and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. These music channels can be played on the *harman/kardon® sound system or Bang & Olufsen audio system.
Using radar sensors to scan the highway, the Active Brake Assist in the Mercedes-Benz GLS significantly lowers the risk of a forward collision. The DISTRONIC® technology can also make adjustments to mitigate the magnitude of a crash or avoid one. When you want to change lanes, make sure to use the Lane Keeping Assist and Blind Spot Assist. The Steering Pilot and Speed Limit Assist also help you stay out of trouble on the road. Driving in inclement weather is made easier with the rain-sensing windshield wipers, Magnetic Vision Control, Adaptive High Beam Assist and Crosswind Assist.
