2024 Mercedes-Maybach GLS – Although the Mercedes-Maybach GLS was launched exactly two years ago, engineers and designers are already at work on an updated version of this SUV. This prototype was captured by our spy in Europe.
2024 Mercedes-Maybach GLS Review
GLS’s most luxurious version will undergo minor visual updates to keep it current and in line with the modern S-Class. The seven-seater is virtually unchanged from the front. It features Maybach’s unique bumper and grille design. However, this prototype may be an early one. Later models will likely see more changes. This is also true for the profile, where you can see multispoke 22-inch wheels with electronically reclining sidesteps for easy ingress/egress. The rear end has changed with the camouflaged portion of the bodywork surrounding the taillights. While the shape of the horizontally-arranged lighting units appears to be similar, the LED graphics are now different.
The updated model will get new graphics for the digital instrument cluster as well as the central touchscreen that runs the most recent version of MBUX. The GLS will eventually inherit the screen layout from the S-Class. It has also made its way to the SL. However, this small facelift might not bring about such a major change. The possibility exists that the Maybach GLS may get the new three-spoke steering wheels from the sedan.
The GLS 600’s twin-turbo 4.0 liter V8 produces 550 hp (558 PS / 410 kW) and 730 Nm (538 lbft). It is mated with the EQ Boost 48 volt mild hybrid system, which can produce an additional 22 hp (16 kW / 23 PS) of power as well as 250 Nm (184 lbft). There may be minor improvements in power and fuel efficiency across the range.
2024 Mercedes-Maybach GLS Updated Version
The Mercedes-Maybach’s updated version is not expected until early 2023. It will be competing with the refreshed Bentley Bentayga and Range Rover.
