New 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL class debuts at NYIAS

The new 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL class features improvementss across the board including safety upgrades, more powerful and fuel efficient engines, and interior changes sure to be welcome by drivers hauling families.

The Mercedes GL class is the large SUV offering from the premium automaker used by families to travel in style and comfort to all manner of activities. Capable off road, on snow, or on the way to pick up the basketball team, the GL is versatile and luxurious. For 2013 Mercedes-Benz makes across the board improvements to this already capable SUV.

Interior upgrades
This full-size SUV has always been a comfortable place in which to travel. Nonetheless, Mercedes-Benz has added more head, elbow, and shoulder room for its occupants in each position of the 2-3-2 layout, while changing the width of the vehicle less than an inch. Electric seat controls for the third row are standard and there is now optional power assist for the Easy-Entry system that enables passengers to get to the third row. This is much more elegant than having the kids dive over the second row back seat rest, though not nearly as much fun. Other interior changes and improvements for the GL include a new Central Command Center for infotainment and HVAC control, ambient lighting additions and a color instrument cluster display. A panoramic roof is now available as well.
