Mercedes-Maybach SUV to roll in 2019

Mercedes-Maybach SUV to roll in 2019

It wouldn't be news if we told you that Mercedes is building another luxury SUV. But it certainly is news when it is going to be the first-ever Maybach SUV. With the yacht-like SUVs gaining popularity over the limousines, car makers are going all-out building more and more of them. We only had the Range Rovers and then came the Bentley Bentayga. The Rolls Royce code-name Cullinan is on the way already.

It doesn’t come as a surprise that Mercedes has taken their largest SUV, the GLS, as the canvas to build the Maybach SUV. After all, the GLS is the S-Class of Mercedes SUVs. For a four-seat layout, the current length of 5130mm seems enough to provide Maybach standard of legroom and comfort along with tonnes of boot space. The aircraft business class-like layout would certainly feel commanding perched more than a metre above the ground level. Creature comforts will be abundant and will include everything from multi-coloured adjustable ambient lighting to options for seat back massage types and intensities, rear seat recliners et al.

Instead of the current 4.7-litre V8 from the current Maybach S500, the GLS will get 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 motor which is compliant to the latest emission standard and built for the future. It is not sure of the Maybach GLS 600 will be built, but if it is, you might get to see the 6.0-litre V12 hauling the largest and most-luxurious Mercedes SUV to over 100kmph in less than five seconds. All-wheel-drive with active suspension and magic-carpet drive should be standard for the Maybach.

The Mercedes Maybach SUV is slated to arrive in 2019 and will be based on the new generation of the Mercedes GLS which will be due by then.
