2016 Mercedes-Benz GLS spied – Video
Here’s another look at the upcoming facelift Mercedes-Benz is preparing for the Mercedes GL.
The X166 generation of Mercedes-Benz’s biggest SUV is about to receive a mid-cycle update and despite the name change from Mercedes GL to Mercedes GLS, the cosmetic revisions will only be minor.
The company’s designers have applied a modest nip & tuck to the front and rear bumpers and they also changed the graphics of both front & rear lighting clusters.
Some subtle revisions are expected inside the cabin where the 2016 Mercedes GL will be updated in the same vein as the Mercedes GLE & Mercedes GLE Coupe duo.
Mercedes-Benz previously said they are thinking about a more luxurious Maybach version with a longer wheelbase and they are also analyzing the prospects of coming out with a Mercedes GLS Coupe, but a final decision regarding the two has not been taken yet.
As for the regular Mercedes GLS, it will be out before the end of 2015 in what Mercedes-Benz has described as being the “year of the SUV” after launching the Mercedes GLE, Mercedes GLE Coupe and the all-new GLC which will be joined next year by a Mercedes GLC Coupe.
