As you may know already, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL will be officially revealed this week at the 2012 New York Auto Show but the big SUV made its debut earlier. Honestly to tell you, the new facelift looks very very good and makes the old model look like a toy car. The new model brings a new set of headlights, new front grille as well as a redesigned front bumper, inspired by the smaller 2012 Mercedes-Benz M-Class.
The rear end was also changed and features a new set of tail lamps. Regarding the interior, this looks a little bit fancier that the old one. Under the hood, there is room for V6 and V8 engines, both turbocharged.
The 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL350 CDI will get the V6 diesel engine delivering 306 hp while the GL500 will get the V8 petrol engine delivering 400 hp. These engines will be mated to a seven-speed automatic gearbox. More details to be revealed on Wednesday, when the car will be unveiled at the New York Auto Show!
