New Mercedes-Benz GLS in Grand Rapids

The Mercedes-Benz GLS: A fusion of luxury and family-friendly features

When it comes to the luxury car market, the Mercedes-Benz brand has consistently been seen as the standard to which all contenders are compared. But while it's renown is borne largely upon its portfolio of luxury sedans, coupes, and cabriolets, the new Mercedes-Benz SUV portfolio has plenty of attractive options in its own right. In fact, if you're hunting for your family's next car, we think you may just be interested in the new Mercedes-Benz GLS.

A pitch-perfect blend of heritage Mercedes-Benz design elements, ample and versatile interior space, and a whole host of premium amenities, the Mercedes-Benz GLS is great for everything from running errands at the RiverTown Crossings mall in Grandville to taking the kids out to the Frog Hollow Boundless Playground in Wyoming, MI.

But of course, while the Mercedes-Benz GLS is a perfectly functional daily driver for families, it is still a Mercedes-Benz car at its core, and that comes with a deep and abiding commitment to performance and sophistication.

Explore the ample array of standard amenities equipped to the Mercedes-Benz GLS

When you compare the Mercedes-Benz GLS to other seven-passenger luxury SUVs on the market, you'll see that it has a significant edge when it comes to standard features. At its entry-level Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 trim level, the Mercedes-Benz GLS boasts some striking exterior styling accents like 19-inch alloy wheels, LED running lights and taillights, and even some features that are stylish and functional like roof rails that make it easy to mount a bike rack if you want to enjoy a relaxing ride in Spring Grove Park.

On the inside, the Mercedes-Benz GLS is replete with high-quality touches, from its MB-Tex® upholstered seating to its genuine wood interior trim. Comfort-focused features are the highlight of the interior design strategy of the Mercedes-Benz GLS, and with amenities like heated front seats, a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat with four-way lumber support and memory settings, a power-adjustable leather-wrapped steering wheel, and dual-zone automatic climate control, it's easy for you and your family to get comfortable and enjoy your time behind the wheel.

Of course, the Mercedes-Benz GLS wouldn't be a Mercedes-Benz without a slew of modern conveniences. For nighttime driving, all the mirrors on the Mercedes-Benz GLS are auto-dimming, and city commuters here in Grand Rapids will also appreciate the fact that the exterior mirrors have power-folding functions. Need a little help managing wintertime driving around Allendale? With Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® all-wheel drive and the AIRMATIC® self-leveling air suspension system, you'll enjoy confidence-inspiring control and uncannily smooth ride quality with the Mercedes-Benz GLS, no matter what road conditions you face outside. You can even remotely start the Mercedes-Benz GLS via the mbrace® Connect app on a compatible smartphone, allowing you to get your car warmed up on those chilly winter mornings.

In fact, when it comes to technology features on the Mercedes-Benz GLS, we'd be remiss if we didn't mention the outstanding Mercedes-Benz COMAND® infotainment system. With its 8-inch display screen, the Mercedes-Benz COMAND® infotainment system allows you to easily view the feed from the rearview camera, pair your favorite mobile device via two connected USB ports, or even listen to your favorite tunes via HD radio.

Personalize your Mercedes-Benz GLS with available options and trims

It's no secret that no two Mercedes-Benz SUVs are exactly alike, but if you want to truly see if the Mercedes-Benz GLS is right for you, you'll want to look at some of its available options and trims.

For example, while most drivers here in Grand Rapids, MI will be satisfied with the capable 362-horsepower 3.0-liter biturbo V6 engine on the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450, those who crave seriously spirited performance will find the Mercedes-Benz AMG  GLS 63 undeniably appealing. Equipped with performance oriented components like a 577-horsepower biturbo V8 engine, sport exhaust system, and sport-tuned braking and suspension systems, the Mercedes-Benz AMG GLS is markedly more dynamic than many other seven-passenger SUVs on the market.

Alternatively, if you're looking for a more premium interior feel for your Mercedes-Benz GLS, you u can choose the Mercedes-Benz GLS 550. With interior accents like wood steering wheel inserts, LED ambient interior lighting, lighted door sills, and adaptive suspension dampers, and available diamond quilted leather upholstery, the Mercedes-Benz GLS 550 envelops its drivers in luxury, making for a truly premium driving experience.
