Mercedes-Benz wants to boost the sales of its GL SUV with a new base gasoline engine. As a result, the German manufacturer announced that it will offer the GL400 version, a new variant powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that generates 333 hp and a maximum torque of 480 Nm. This is the same engine used by the brand new Mercedes-Benz SL400.

Using a seven-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL400 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.7 seconds, while the top speed achieved is 240 km/h or 149 mph. Fuel consumption remains low, at 9.2 liters, while CO2 emissions are 215 g/km.

In Germany, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL400 will have a price tag of 76,160 euros. The GL is also available with a bigger V8 petrol engine and it costs 95,973 euros. The GL500 is the most powerful version of the standard GL as its V8 engine delivers an impressive 435 hp.

Still, if you want even more, Mercedes-Benz offers the GL 63 AMG, powered by a 5.5-liter V8 engine that generates 557 hp and 760 Nm of torque. With these numbers, the GL63 AMG hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.9 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.
