New Mercedes-Benz GLS to borrow autonomous technology from S-Class

- 2019 GLS to borrow autonomous technology from the S-Class
- Design elements similar to the upcoming new GLE
- To get powertrain options from S-Class

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS has been recently spotted testing at Nurburgring ahead of its anticipated public unveiling later this year. Based on what could be seen, the SUV will get design elements similar to the new GLE which is also due for launch later this year. As for the mechanicals, the technology will be carried over from the S-Class. This might also include the autonomous technology from the S-Class.

The powertrain options are also likely to be borrowed from the S-Class. The S-Class has six-cylinder and eight-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine options, along with six-cylinder turbo-diesel and an electric plug-in hybrid option. It is believed that the top-of-the-line variant will be the GLS 63 AMG which will be powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 powerplant which will generate 620bhp.

As seen in test images, the new GLS is expected to get a boxier rear section. However, this might also be due to the cladding in the development car. The vehicle is also expected to be offered with dual-display setup for the instrument cluster and media display with 12.3-inch screens, MBUX infotainment system with augmented reality technology and natural speech recognition.

More details about the vehicle will be known in the days to come.
