Mercedes-Benz presents the new GL-Class Grand Edition. The new special edition of the off-roader comes as standard with a level of spaciousness and comfort that is on a par with a luxury saloon. The package includes special light-alloy wheels with 275/50 R20 tyres, high‑quality, two-tone leather seats in a new design, and wood trim in black ash. The special Grand Edition model also offers an array of additional equipment and is available with all the engines in the GL-Class line-up.
The frontend of the Grand Edition has dark-tinted headlamps, a radiator grille with black, high-gloss louvres and a redesigned front bumper with integrated LED daytime running lamps. Light-alloy wheels in himalayas grey metallic – with a high-sheen finish also available as an option – are also added to the vehicle. There are other visual highlights too, such as metallic paint finishes, heat-insulating and infrared-reflecting laminated glass all round, aluminium-look running boards with rubber studs, and separated exhaust tailpipe trim.
The interior of the GL-Class accommodates up to seven occupants in comfort. For the Grand Edition, Mercedes-Benz has refined the interior further. Appointments include two-tone seats (black/porcelain or black/maroon) in leather (or in nappa leather as an option) with a special piping design and contrasting stitching.
Likewise only available on the Grand Edition are door center panels, armrests and dashboard instrument panel with double-lapped felling, as well as trim and a wood/leather steering wheel in black ash.
Other enhancements are the comfort headrests for the driver and front passenger, ambient lighting, roof liner in black designo fabric, velour floor mats with contrasting stitching and Grand Edition lettering, Grand Edition badge on the center console, sports pedals in brushed stainless steel with rubber studs and door sill panels in stainless steel. The Grand Edition models are equipped with Parktronic and any one of the available engines.
