Mercedes-Benz GL-Class facelift debuts in New York

Mercedes GL350 fq

Mercedes Benz has some big plans for this week’s New York Auto Show, with no less than three world debuts planned. The debuts include the unveiling of the all-new E63 AMG performance saloon, the production ML450 Hybrid and now the 2010 model year facelift for the GL-Class SUV.

On display is the renamed GL350 BlueTEC diesel and GL450 petrol model, both of which feature updated front styling, new bumpers, wheels and new lights with LEDs. The GL350 BlueTEC is to replace the current GL350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY and is claimed to have 20-30% better fuel economy than the petrol model. The seven-seat SUV also boasts a cruising range of up to 600 miles on a tank.

Other models in the range boast up to 5% lower fuel consumption than the out going models, and the entire model family now meets the EU5 emissions standard.

The interior of the GL-Class will accommodate up to seven passengers comfortably and comes with a mix of leather and faux leather seats with contrasting stitching. The higher specification of the flagship GL 500 includes full Nappa leather. All the models feature upgraded instrumentation, a multifunction steering wheel in Nappa leather and new crash-responsive head restraints for driver and front passenger.
