The journey begins under the hood, where, in the 2018 GLS 450 trim, there churns a capable 362-horsepower, 3.0-liter V6 biturbo engine, offering 369 pound-feet or turn-and-pull power, with the balance of efficiency afforded by ECO Start/Stop tech. In the 2018 GLS 550, the line of new Mercedes-Benz SUVs takes off, shelling out a high-performance 449 horsepower thanks to a 4.7-liter V8 biturbo powerplant pushing 516 pound-feet of torque ready to head off the grid. To that end, 4MATIC all-wheel drive comes standard in each, complemented by an AIRMATIC® suspension making possible ride height customization for improved aerodynamics, ground clearance, or a delicate balance of the two. That means comfort without performance sacrifice.


The new Mercedes-Benz GLS interior likewise impresses for 2018, boasting hand-finished wood trim to accent hand-fitted leather-like MB-Tex upholstery atop standard heated front seats, with leather and Nappa leather appointments available. For the trip, you'll find the luxury SUV human-centered, as select trims offer available COMAND touchpad control and navigation, an 8-inch high-resolution color infotainment system to make adjustments a matter of course, and an optional Rear Seat Entertainment system to create that world apart that defines the ideal vacation. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility simplifies smartphone integration, dovetailing an available built-in Wi-Fi hotspot for the often much-needed touch of civilization off the beaten path.


Our new GLS line from Mercedes-Benz remains as capacious for a new year of odysseys, too, making up to 94 cubic feet of cargo space available for the ride with its 60/40-split second-row and power-folding 50/50-split third-row seats collapsed. Accessing your haul's a breeze via the standard power liftgate, and 2018 GLS can even take a trailerful up to 7,500 pounds in tow when properly equipped.


But the drive isn't without the safety for which our moniker is known. Both the GLS 450 and GLS 550 SUVs offer a bevy of advanced technological accouterments to help you avoid collisions, remain attentive, and stay situationally aware of vehicles nearby and behind. The SUV can even help prepare the cabin before an accident with a host of automatic safeguards. That's not to mention the array of safe-distancing, adaptive high beam visualization, blind spot and lane keeping assist, and parking functions made possible by optional additions just as diverse as the vicissitudes of the road.
