2012 Mercedes-Benz GL 350.jpg

Mercedes-Benz GL 350 BlueTec/Mercedes-Benz GL 400/Mercedes-Benz GL 450/Mercedes-Benz GL 550/Mercedes-Benz GL 63 AMG (X166). 2012–15 (prod. n/a). 5-door SUV. F/A, 2987 cm³ diesel, 2996 cm³ petrol (V6 DOHC), 3996, 4663, 5461 cm³ (V8 DOHC). Second generation of Mercedes-Benz’s large, US-built SUV, with evolutionary styling. Larger than before, with more room inside; new interior, including revamped dashboard, featuring a 4·5-inch colour display between the dials; and new or revised engines which endowed the X166 with reasonable performance. Refined, with effortless cruising with comfort, but heavy weight limited its range. Stability control intrusive based on some reports. GL 550 called GL 500 for export.

Manufacturing location: Tuscaloosa, Alabama, USA

Marque: Mercedes-Benz | Model: Mercedes-Benz GL | Predecessor: Mercedes-Benz GL (X164) | Successor: Mercedes-Benz GLS (X166)
