Mercedes-Benz Australia has released specifications and pricing for the all-new 2020 GLS SUV line-up, ahead of the first customer deliveries that will be arriving in December. At launch, Australia will get the GLS450 and the GLS400d – both six-cylinder units, one petrol and one diesel. Pricing starts at $144,600 plus on-road costs for the GLS450, which is powered by a 3.0-litre turbocharged inline six that produces 270kW and 500Nm, with power sent to all four wheels (4Matic) via a nine-speed automatic transmission. The GLS450 also features Mercedes-Benz’s ‘EQ Boost’ 48V mild-hybrid technology that provides up to 16kW and 250Nm for quick bursts. Specification levels for the GLS400d (priced from $151,300 plus on-road costs) are identical to that of the GLS450 petrol model, with the obvious exception of the powertrain – which in the diesel derivative gets a 3.0-litre inline six turbo-diesel producing 243kW and 700Nm, also mated to a nine-speed automatic and Mercedes Benz’s ever popular 4Matic all-wheel drive. At the drivers disposal, there are a number of luxury standard inclusions, including AMG-Line exterior package, leather upholstery, seven seats, power-adjustable multi-contour front seats with heating and ventilation, MBUX infotainment with navigation and live traffic updates, a 590W 13-speaker Burmester sound system, head-up display, and four-zone climate control. Other features also include a sliding panoramic sunroof, electric tailgate, power-closing doors, 21-inch five-twin-spoke AMG alloy wheels, nine airbags, adaptive cruise control, active park assist, a 360-degree camera, lane-keep and lane-change assist, blind-spot assist, and rear cross-traffic alert.
