The 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class was at the dealership yesterday for our pre-launch training. This was my first look at the redesigned GL-Class and it was everything I expected it to be! The GL-Class looks sleeker, sportier and a lot more luxurious. There are strong similarities to the all-new ML-Class and I love everything about that vehicle!
This particular vehicle is a 2013 GL350 Bluetec in Arctic White with Grey MB Tex Interior. It has the Premium 2 Package, Driver Assistance Package, Lighting Pacakge, 3-Zone Climate Control, Rear entertainment system and the optional two-tone 20″ Wheels.
The running boards are now slightly narrower so you won’t dirty your pants as you exit the vehicle when you step over them.
This is the new MB-Tex with perforations. It looks very much like leather.
You can see the controls in for the 3-zone climate control on this vehicle. This is the factory rear-seat entertainment system that allows for DVDs to be played from the front or the rear of the vehicle.
Both sides of the second row seat now fold and tumble. The handles for this operation are much larger and there is an option for this to be power.
The cargo area for the new GL-Class is now a little wider to accommodate golf clubs! This is enough cargo space for all of the training materials needed for the whole state of Georgia!
The Panoramic roof is now optional for the 2013 GL-Class.
This vehicle has the Lighting Package. You can pick it out based on the upper ribbon of LEDs and the headlamp washing doors below the lights.
These tail lights are beautiful! They are also LED so they are faster than conventionaltail lights, giving the person behind you as much as an extra .1 seconds to stop!
The 2013 GL-Class is scheduled to arrive Spetember with the GL450 and GL550. The GL350 Bleutec will follow in October and the all-new GL63 AMG in the first quarter of 2013!
