The GLS is engineered and equipped to set the bar for 7-passenger luxury SUVs. Its legacy of leadership includes benchmarks like the S-Class sedan and iconic G-Class. And it's eager to lead your family anywhere in bold and brilliant style, from it LED lighting, to wheels from 19 to 22 inches, to a body that's at once muscular and aerodynamic.
Heated power front seats. A second row that reclines. And a power-folding third row with adult-sized comfort. No matter where you take a seat in the GLS, the GLS takes you to a place where leadership is omnipresent: in roominess, in refinement, and in its rewards. Available innovations range from massaging front seats to a vast Panorama roof.
Expressively elegant headlamps draw more than admiring eyes: their LED Daytime Running Lamps help other drivers take notice of your approach. Available active LED headlamps cast brighter beams, and adapt to curves and oncoming traffic. And the wide taillamps include LED brake and turn signal lamps, and "twin torch" LED running lamps.
Large side doors and innovative EASY-ENTRY 2nd-row seats welcome up to seven adults to three rows of luxury seating, including a spacious third row. The standard power liftgate, power-folding third row and 60/40-split second row accommodate up to 93.8 cubic feet of cargo. In any configuration, the GLS has an extraordinary capacity to satisfy.
Responsive V6 and V8 biturbo engines make more power torque from less gasoline, with advanced Direct Injection and multispark ignition that self-tune every few milliseconds. Along with as many as nine paddle-shifted speeds, DYNAMIC SELECT lets you choose a driving mode to match your mood, from Comfort to Sport or even one for slick surfaces.
Standard 4MATIC® all-wheel drive instantly sends power to the wheels that can use it best, inspiring confidence in any season. The 4-wheel AIRMATIC® suspension adapts to changing roads and cargo loads, enhacing driving control and passenger comfort. Innovative options include the roll-taming ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM and a rugged Off-road Package

A pair of sizable and sharp flat screens behind each front head restraint give your 2nd-row passengers a front-row seat for DVD movies, game play and more. Multiple inputs, two remotes and two DVD players let passengers enjoy themselves individually or together, with audio played via two wireless headsets or the GLS sound system.
