About this vehicle

The Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class launched in 2006 to take over from the GL-Class model. A large luxury SUV, the GLS-Class series comes available in three trim packages: the GLS 450, GLS 580 and the AMG GLS 63.

The 450 model starts at a base price of $76,000 whereas the high-end AMG GLS 63 model starts at $132,100. And even though Mercedes-Benz ensures this deluxe vehicle comes well-equipped right across the model series, consumers can buy into extra-option packages for added styling, comfort and technology.

Consumers would be wise to stay on the lookout for the Executive Rear Seat package offering upgraded second-row seating, the Acoustic Comfort package with enhanced insulation to reduce cabin noise and more, and the Driver Assist Package Plus with its added safety features that include:

  • Adaptive cruise control. Helps maintain a constant distance between the vehicle and the car ahead.
  • Lane-keeping system. Uses minor steering corrections to help keep the vehicle centered in its lane.
  • Evasive steering assist. Enhances the forward collision mitigation system with steering-based collision avoidance.
  • Speed limit assist. Detects and displays posted speed limit signs on the instrument panel, alerting you if you exceed the limit.

Under the hood you’ll find a 9-speed automatic, 6-cyclinder hybrid engine with AWD offering mileage of a combined 21 mpg, for an approximate 525-mile range. And get ready to dig a little deeper: This vehicle only takes premium fuel to top up its 23.8-gallon tank. But, it offers third-row seating capable of carrying seven passengers, and can tow up to 7,700 pounds — making this vehicle great for fun family glamping trips.

    HI there,

    Do you know of anyone who offers coverage for rim and tire protection/ insurance ONLY. The vehicle is currently insured with a provider who does NOT offer this additional coverage. Dealership offered coverage but would like to shop quotes.
