When it comes to the high-end car market, Mercedes has always exceeded expectations; particularly in the SUV section. This time, the German car giant has actually done it once again with the very stylish and glamorous 2018 Mercedes-Maybach GLS. This model is an extremely elegant S-Class SUV and is one of the most exquisite cars to ever to come out of the Mercedes-Maybach collaboration. The biggest rival is most likely to be Bentley Bentayga which is an entirely brand-new model, developed to be the most luxurious SUV on global market.
2018 Mercedes-Maybach GLS Exterior
With the GL-Class already nearly as long as the standard S-Class, expect the uber-luxurious version of the facelifted GLS to increase a little in size and wheelbase. With that in mind, the most significant style distinction compared with a non-Maybach GLS will be the rear doors, which will be a little bigger and will not go over the rear wheel arches to much better accommodate rear passengers. Other than that, a set of distinct wheels, double-M badging, chrome-engulfed window sills and B-pillars will be the only differences as seen from the side.
The front end, apart from featuring an all-new design thanks to the facelift, will be personalized subtly for the Maybach version also. Anticipate the grille to feature 3 chrome double louvers like on the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, while the air intakes in the bumper will also get double the trim of the routine model. As far as the rear goes, apart from Mercedes-Maybach badging, the tailpipe exits will have a distinctive style, with more chrome trim included the bottom of the bumper. All in all, the call-word must be “subtle,” not “sumptuous” as far as the exterior design is concerned.
2018 Mercedes-Maybach GLS Interior
The Maybach-Manufaktur high-end car symbol will be replaced with Mercedes-Maybach. Just when it appeared that Maybach pending shutdown Mercedes-Benz has restored luxury S660 sedan. Next to him will be used upcoming 2018 Mercedes Maybach GLS as ultra high-end life-sized SUV. New GLS is the realization of statements name change for better clarity. So the GL-Class after changing the name became GLS because end of 2015. As such will definitely be more pricey then Maybach GLS. Giant from Stuttgart could utilize S-Class of which would upgrade get stylish interiors that might take on English model.
2018 Mercedes-Maybach GLS Engine
It is prematurely to leap to the conclusion that the 2018 Mercedes-Maybach GLS will receive the twin-turbo V-12 from the S600, but if the German carmaker will likely need it to take on the upcoming W-12-powered Bentley Bentayga. As far as power and torque are worried, the twin-turbocharged, 4.7-liter V-8 in the GL550 need to be more than as much as the job. With 429 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, just 5.4 seconds are needed to hit 62 mph from a standing start.
2018 Mercedes-Maybach GLS Release Date and Price
With the current GL550 starting at $89,950 and the GL63 AMG starting at $119,450, I anticipate the Mercedes-Maybach variation to be the most costly GLS at about $150,000. That might look like a ton of cash, but bear in mind that not only will the Bentley Bentayga probably be a lot more expensive, however that price would make it the cheapest Maybach-branded brand-new car ever. The 2018 Mercedes-Maybach GLS must make its debut soon. It will show up on the marketplace late this year or early next, as a 2018 model.
