2010 Mercedes GLK350 – MotorWeek Car Keys

The 2010 GLK350 should be here in January. Here is a great overview from MotorWeek.

Mercedes 2010 GLK350 – Motor Trend First Drive

Mercedes-Benz 2010 GLK350 Offroad

Motor Trend went to Spain to get behind the wheel of the new GLK350. While the car they tested had the off-road package that is not expected to be an option here it is still a good article for anyone interested in this new compact SUV. You can read their full report here

2010 Mercedes GLK350 – First Brochure

Mercedes just sent out an information sheet on the 2010 GLK350 4Matic. I have included the 4 pages here as a PDF for you.

Mercedes Benz GLK Brochure

This SUV will be slightly smaller than the ML350 and will share a lot with the C-Class. This is the first time I have seen a real interior picture. Notice that it has the same steering wheel, armrest, instrument cluster, door buttons and climate control as the 2008 C-Class.

You’ll be able to see a lot more of the GLK in the new “Sex and the City” movie. From what I understand, one of the women drives the new GLK and Mr. Big is chauffered in an S550 as well!

Mercedes Vision GLK BLUETEC Hybrid – 40mpg!

At the Geneva auto show Mercedes-Benz showed off their new Vision GLK BLUETEC Hybrid. Based on the upcoming GLK-Class this concept combines a 2.2 liter BLUETEC diesel with a mild hybrid system to result in a stunning 40 mpg. The 2.2 liter diesel by itself is a great package with an output of 224 hp & 413 lb-ft of torque.

I’m a huge fan of diesels and I would love to see this motor with or without the hybrid in the GLK and next years C-Class for the US market. Based on Mercedes past launches I would expect to see the GLK BLUETEC available a few months after the gasoline powered GLK350 comes out this summer. The hybrid GLK will probably launch in 2009 or 2010 along with hybrid versions of several other Mercedes models.

Get in touch with me today to get on the list for the new GLK.

The New GLK!

The Vision GLK was introduced at the 2008 North American International Auto Show this week. This is will be Mercedes new small SUV – a little smaller than the ML but with styling more similar to the GL – hence the name. We expect it to be for sale in the US in early 2009 as a 2010 model. Most of the interior and navigation appear to be very similar to those found in the 2008 C-class. The auto show versions were powered by a new to the US market 2.2 Liter BLUETEC clean diesel rated at 168hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Based on the performance of our current ML and GL diesel models I would estimate this setup will get about 30mpg highway.

The GLK showed up on mbusa today for the first time. Their have also been several recent pictures of the GLK from the filming of the new Sex in the City movie where it will be featured.

What do you think? If you would like to be added to my GLK update list just send me an e-mail. We usually get a sample car a few weeks before the real car arrives and the specs should start to filter out soon. I think it will be a great vehicle!
