2013 Mercedes-Benz GL450 | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – Now, Mercedes-Benz boasts that its second generation GL, which will be unveiled to the public at this week’s New York auto show, is “all new.” Indeed, we have no reason to doubt any claims that this truck has little mechanically in common with its predecessor, the first GL. But with this truck looking rather like a longer version of its ML platform mate, “all new” may be a case of quite literally stretching the truth. This wouldn’t be much of a big deal the last M and GL classes also shared quite a bit underneath, after all, and we liked the previous GL just dandy.

At the top of that high riding food chain is the GL Class. The mammoth utility services the company’s youngest average buyer at 48 years old and recently eclipsed the aforementioned Escalade as the most popular full size luxury SUV in the States. For 2013, the GL has grown in every measurable dimension, offers subtly more fuel efficient drivetrain options and a rash of standard and available technology, all supported by a miracle working air ride suspension. The changes are enough to put the GL that much farther ahead of the ancient Cadillac, but the recipe isn’t perfect.

2013 Mercedes-Benz GL450 Interior and Exterior :
2013 Mercedes-Benz GL450 Interior and Exterior. – Cosmetically, the GL and ML appear to share front doors, but are otherwise pretty different. The GL has been given its own, far more aggressive style, and we have to say it’s pretty handsome. Up front, the crossover features projector lamps and some LED light signatures, as well as a simple two slat grille. A rising rear fender flare starts ahead of the wheel arch and then curves up and around toward the rear; it’s a familiar design element common to many modern Benzes and might be most successful here. For some stylistic familiarity, the first gen GL’s D pillar design was reapplied to this new model.

The seven inch LCD screen lacks a touch interface, and the old console mounted dial and button system can be clunky and distracting. Menu options are far from intuitive and the navigation renderings look lifted straight from 2005. Compared to the Audi MMI or Cadillac CUE systems, COMAND is beginning to look more than a little rusty. That said, the Escalade still soldiers on with GM’s last-generation navigation at the moment, though the next chapter in the SUV’s evolution is right around the corner. Buyers will likely see the top tier Escalade bow with CUE next year for the all new 2013 model. When that happens, Mercedes-Benz should be worried.

2013 Mercedes-Benz GL450 Engine :
2013 Mercedes-Benz GL450 Engine. – Now, New 2013 Mercedes GL450 comes with 4Matic all wheel drive as standard equipment, though buyers can choose from three engine options. Mercedes Benz says the vast majority of buyers will wind up going home with twin turbocharged, direct injection 4.6 liter V8 in the GL450. The engine delivers 362 horsepower and 406 pound feet of torque, which is more than adequate enough to kick the ridiculously heavy SUV down the highway. Official estimates put the run to 60 miles per hour in the 6.2 second range thanks in part to the seven speed automatic transmission. The Environmental Protection Agency hasn’t released official mileage figures just yet, though Mercedes Benz estimates the combination is good for 14 miles per gallon city and 19 mpg highway. Those numbers aren’t outstanding, but they aren’t horrible for a vehicle that tips the scales at 5,401 pounds.

Power for the GL comes from three sources, and they’re divvied up among GL350, GL450, and GL550 models. The GL350 features a 3.0 liter BlueTec diesel V-6 making 240 hp and 455 lb ft of torque, hefty increases from the 210 hp and 400 lb ft stumped up by the outgoing diesel GL. The GL450 and GL550 once again use V-8 power, but this time they get two tunes of the same engine: Benz’s widely used twin turbo 4.7 liter V-8. It makes 362 hp and 406 lb ft in the GL450, up from 355 hp and 339 lb-ft of its predecessor’s naturally aspirated 4.7. The GL550 now boasts 429 hp and 516 lb ft, the outgoing model’s naturally aspirated 5.5 liter V-8 produced 382 hp and 391 lb ft. Source: autocarrelease.com, neocarsuv.blogspot.com.
