Mercedes-Benz GL Coupe in the works, will go into production in 2016

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 31, 2013

Yesterday we told you that Bmw is preparing the X7, but today we found out that the other German rival, Mercedes-Benz, is also working on a large SUV. According to German magazine, AutoBild, Mercedes-Benz is working on a coupe version of the GL-Class and the new model could make its debut in 2016.

As expected, the third-row SUV will be produced for markets such as China and United States. What’s more interesting is that Mercedes-Benz doesn’t expect impressive sales from the GL Coupe but the German manufacturer will become even more popular in China or United States.

Moreover, the new Mercedes-Benz GL Coupe will not need a big investment to be produced due to the fact that it will share most of the technology and electronics with the GL-Class. Still, in terms of design, the new GL Coupe will gave a longer roof, completely new bumpers, headlights, front grille and an upgraded interior.

Under the hood it will feature a super fuel-efficient six-cylinder diesel engine which will deliver, for the first time, more than 300 hp. The engine will offer a nine-speed automatic transmission. A V8 petrol engine will also be offered, while a new generation will follow somewhere in 2017. These are the first details regarding the new GL Coupe, but as soon as we will find out something new we will let you know!
