Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The GLS-Class officially makes its debut for 2017, though it's really a slightly revised version of the outgoing GL-Class. Highlights include modified exterior styling, a newly standard nine-speed automatic transmission (except on the AMG GLS 63) and a touchpad-operated infotainment system with a larger screen and available Apple CarPlay. Also, all engines except the GLS450's turbocharged V6 get a bit more horsepower this year.

Pros
Third row is large enough for adults
Spirited acceleration with any of the three gasoline engines
Impressive fuel economy with the diesel engine
Quiet cabin with high-end trimmings and features.

Cons
Diesel-powered model feels relatively slow when passing and merging
Big price jump from the six-cylinder models to the V8-powered versions.

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS gets the first-class upgrade along with its name change—and a Maybach edition is waiting in the wings.
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class marks a significant, mid-cycle upgrade for what was previously knew as the GL-Class. As part of a nomenclature change sweeping the entire brand, each of the German luxury maker's sport-utility vehicles has received new badging and a full or partial makeover to bring the lineup into more obvious parallels with its sedans—so this large, three-row SUV becomes the GLS, to align it with the largest S-Class sedan. Hence the S in its new name.

Pros
Spacious, flexible interior
Rugged-lux, with some added panache
Great set of safety, infotainment features

Cons
Not an entirely new vehicle
Some switchgear looks dated
Cumbersome COMAND interface

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class ranks 1 out of 8 Luxury Large SUVs. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS hits most of the right notes for a large SUV. It boasts a supple ride, three powerful engine choices, three rows of roomy seats, and the same level of luxury that has come to be synonymous with the brand. However, the GLS has fewer standard features than many rivals do, and its available V8 engines are less fuel-efficient than those offered by many competitors.

Pros
Powerful engine lineup
Smooth ride
Three rows of spacious seats

Cons
Fewer features than some rivals
V8 engines get subpar fuel economy
