Automotive News is reporting that MBUSA CEO, Steve Cannon, confirmed the arrival of a diesel engine for the 2013 GLK-Class! The engine is expected to arrive as a 2013 model, at the same time the GLK-Class gets its’ mid-cycle refresh in the fall of 2012! The GLK-Class is already made with a variety of diesel engines in other markets.
