The Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 SUV base model starts at $76,000.

The GLS is designed and engineered by Mercedes-Benz in Germany, and most units in the US are Made in America, at the Mercedes-Benz production plant in Alabama.

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV is expected to receive up to 20 mpg city / 24 mpg highway.

If you’re looking for a large luxury SUV which can transport up to seven people in style, the GLS excels. It can comfortably fit taller adults in the third-row seats, and is a well-rounded option that is equipped for any adventure. The thought and ingenuity that has been engineered into the vehicle is evident throughout, and comfort takes a back seat to no one. In fact, you’ll be racing for the second row when you go with the GLS’s optional massage functionality.

Some models within the Mercedes-Benz line have been rated as the best luxury cars with the lowest depreciation value. As the largest SUV in the Mercedes-Benz family, the 2021 GLS is expected to hold its value well in comparison to rivals in its class.

What are the New Features of the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLS?

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLS base model GLS 450 is offered with a six-cylinder turbocharged 3.0-liter engine and runs at 362 horsepower, with hybridization. Despite its large luxury SUV size, the GLS makes hustling on a twisty road look effortless, offering a smooth ride for you and your passengers.

Brand new for Mercedes-Benz is the optional E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL (E-ABC®) suspension, located at the wheels of the 2021 GLS. Offering the ability to lean into corners like cars, this high-tech suspension provides the most advanced SUV handling in the industry. E-ABC® uses hydraulic pumps which are powered by 48-volt motors opposed to the engine. This improves efficiency, adjusts the ride height, counteracts body rolling, and stabilizes the SUV under crosswinds.

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLS offers an ultra-modern, yet user-intuitive 12.3-inch infotainment system, which floats the entire length of the dashboard. With artificial intelligence that lets you interact with the MBUX like a real person, commands can be activated by touchscreen or voice. If you’re hungry, all you have to do is tell your Mercedes-Benz “I’m hungry,” and it’ll prompt you to complete a navigation search to your go-to take-out.

With 17.4 cubic feet of space with all of the seats up, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLS boasts enough space for adult passengers in every seat. With a cabin fully outfitted with luxurious materials, including real wood trim, you’ll all arrive at your destination even more relaxed than before you started out.

Safety has never been more fun with some of the features available in this model year’s Mercedes-Benz GLS. Radar and camera-based technology have been integrated within your SUV to provide virtual vigilance beyond your human limitations. If parking isn’t one of your best skills, let your vehicle do the work for you. Blind Spot Assist has all of your bases covered for when you’re trying to change lanes in traffic which isn’t always visible.
