  • 1.  2013  GL-CLASS
  • 2.  IT UPHOLDS EVEN MORE THAN IT HOLDS.
  • 3. When the inventor of the first automobile — along with the first truck and first 4-wheel drive vehicle — created its first full-size SUV, a lot of family traditions came into play. Not just the adventurous spirit, gratifying comfort and protective nature that have long defined Mercedes-Benz — but also the same qualities you cherish in your own family. With advanced safety, refined luxury and inspiring performance, the original GL‑Class extended its hereditary traits to more passengers than ever. It also brought its virtues to more drivers, becoming the best-selling full‑size luxury SUV. For 2013, a new generation of GL‑Class is born. Once again, it upholds every tradition its family started. And holds some new ones even higher. Learn more at MBUSA.com/GL GL 550 shown at left with Steel Grey metallic paint and optional Panorama roof.

Even in the spacious third row of a 2013 GL‑Class, your family travels on the leading edge of innovation, and in the lap of luxury. From the efficient GL 350 BlueTEC to the lavish GL 550, every GL‑Class shares a rich legacy of leadership in safety, performance and comfort — and shares none of its body or soul with a pickup truck. So while it’s roomy in every row, its also refined on any road, thanks in part to its 4‑wheel air suspension. And its big muscles are matched by sharp wits. Each of its engine choices delivers over 400lb‑ft of peak torque via nimble, confident 4matic all-wheel drive. Its robust uni-body is aerodynamically honed to save fuel, hush the wind, and even help keep its windows cleaner. And its safety systems are so far advanced, the GL can sense a potential collision, warn you, and then help you brake to avoid it. You can size up any SUV by seeing how much will fit behind you. You can measure the GL‑Class by how far it puts you ahead. GL 350 BlueTEC. One of the most fuel-efficient and torque-rich 7-passenger SUVs on the road, the clean diesel GL 350 BlueTEC1 combines ample towing capacity with an admirable 24-mpg highway rating that can take you more than 600 miles between fuel stops.2 And with standard 19" wheels, 4matic™ all-wheel drive, self-leveling AIRMATIC suspension and a paddle-shifted 7‑speed automatic transmission, it’s a joy to drive across town, around corners, or through any season. GL 450. With a new 4.6‑liter Direct Injection biturbo V-8, the 362‑hp GL 450 makes more power and torque from less gasoline, with fewer emissions. It also reaches 60 mph quicker than ever, in just 6.2 seconds.3 Its beefy 19" wheels, 4matic all-wheel drive, and a paddle-shifted 7‑speed automatic team up with its new engine to inspire commanding confidence in any climate. GL 550. The new 429‑hp Direct Injection biturbo V‑8 in the GL 550 outputs more massive torque than ever, with an even more impressive boost in fuel-efficiency. Riding on standard 21" AMG wheels and an adaptive air suspension, the GL 550 supersizes virtually every measure of SUV performance. With a 5.5‑second 0–60 time, it can out-accelerate some sports cars.3 And with its abundance of standard equipment, its sumptuous, spacious cabin outpaces many luxury sedans.  3 ROWS OF LUXURY.  7 SEATS AT THE FOREFRONT.
  • 5. Wherever you venture in the all-new GL‑Class, it goes to great lengths to make sure everyone onboard enjoys their stay. Every surface of the finely finished cabin reflects a tradition of craftsmanship that’s been handed down for generations. Each of its many innovations in comfort, convenience and connectivity reveals not just ingenious thinking but genuine thoughtfulness. And unlike many other 7‑passenger SUVs, all three rows of seating are easy to reach and offer ample room to stretch out. The 2nd-row seats recline to10 positions. And even the roomy third row feels like first class, thanks to a standard EASY‑ENTRY® feature at both rear doors. Whether it’s your everyday after-school round-up or the annual summer road trip, the GL‑Class goes all out to welcome everybody in. From roominess to refinement, it simply doesn’t do anything halfway. Immense. Luxury occurs on a grand scale in the GL‑Class cabin. Stretch-out room is plentiful from the heated power front seats to the power-folding 50/50‑split third row. The four side doors open wide to ease your entry and exit, and offer a new soft-close option. The 60/40-split 2nd-row seats recline for added comfort on long trips. An EASY-ENTRY feature quickly flips and folds each side out of the way, for convenient access to the third row from either rear door. And with countless folding configurations, there’s up to 93.8 cu ft of cargo room with all the rear seats down.4 Even with all seven seats in use, the luggage space rivals the trunk of an S‑Class sedan. Immersive. On any journey, many thoughtful amenities let you bask in soothing comfort. Standard dual-zone climate control constantly monitors humidity, and filters dust, pollen and odors from the cabin air. An optional 3‑zone system5 adds rear-cabin air conditioning with its own controls. By night, available multicolor ambient lighting casts a glow from beneath the hand-finished wood trim in the dash and doors — a delightful meeting of modern fiber optics and old-world craftsmanship. And day or night, the optional Panorama roof lets the passengers take in the sky through a giant span of heat-rejecting tinted glass. The power front section tilts up or slides, while a power screen can shade the first and second rows.  ALL IN GL 550 shown at left with Almond Beige leather, Burl Walnut wood trim, and optional Driver Assistance and On/Off‑Road Packages.

With most full-size SUVs, that’s not just what you hear from the back row — it’s what you often ask yourself as you merge into traffic or round a tight corner. The GL‑Class answers your driving demands with enthusiasm and composure. That’s because its advanced performance systems continually join forces to keep it all together. Turbocharged Direct Injection engines unite responsive power output with responsible fuel intake. Nimble 4matic® all-wheel drive integrates our pioneering 4‑wheel Electronic Traction System (4‑ETS® ) for reassuring control, from deep snow to dry corners. Height-adjustable, self-leveling AIRMATIC® suspension soaks up heaving roads and heavy loads. Trailer Stability Assist helps you tow up to 7,500 lbs6 with unwavering confidence. New Crosswind Stabilization and the optional ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM each work wonders to keep handling on an even keel. And at the twist of a knob, a new On/Off‑Road Package offers six modes for the suspension and drivetrain — from trailering to trailblazing to traversing a winding road. When it comes to your driving enjoyment, most large SUVs seem to tell their drivers “don’t even ask.” The GL‑Class says “I was hoping you would.”  PLAYS TOGETHER. STAYS TOGETHER.
  • 7. Advanced. A trio of innovative Direct Injection engines offer vigorous acceleration without a voracious appetite. Two gasoline biturbo V-8s can fine-tune their fuel and spark in a millisecond, for a torrent of torque with a trickle of emissions. The 362‑hp version in the GL 450 generates over 400 lb‑ft of torque from just 1,500 rpm. The 429-hp powerhouse in the GL 550 reaches 516 lb‑ft at 1,800 rpm. The remarkable GL 350 BlueTEC features a clean diesel turbo V-61 that puts out a massive 455 lb‑ft of torque at just 1,600 rpm. BlueTEC, perhaps the world’s most advanced diesel technology, converts its nitrogen oxide emissions into the earth-friendly elements of nitrogen and oxygen. The result of all this math and science is simple: instant response in most any situation, with refreshing long-term benefits. Adaptive. Engineered for smoother, more efficient performance, the driver-adaptive 7‑speed automatic transmission keeps pace with your current driving style. An electronic selector and sporty shift paddles put easy control of gear changes at your fingertips, without taking your hand from the steering wheel. Athletic. The generous size and gripping performance of twin 5‑spoke wheels come in three sizes and styles. The GL 350 BlueTEC and GL 450 feature standard 19" wheels, with an even sportier 20" design optional. The GL 550 is poised on immensely appealing 21" AMG wheels. Adept. In any weather, 4matic all-wheel drive helps turn grip into go. Its 4‑wheel Electronic Traction System (4‑ETS) continually redistributes torque to the wheels with the best grip — even if that’s a single wheel.7 With a permanent 50:50 front/rear torque split, handling is quick and crisp on dry roads, too. Active. For remarkably flat cornering, the optional ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM employs variable stabilizers that instantly tighten up in corners, yet help maintain a relaxing ride in less demanding conditions. An Adaptive Damping System (ADS) is included,5 with electronically controlled shock absorbers that adjust to every move of each wheel, and offer the driver a choice of Sport and Comfort modes on demand. Adventurous. A new On/Off‑Road Package adds a 2‑speed transfer case, a front underride skid plate and Adaptive Damping System.5 A rotary selector on the console offers six driving programs that adapt the throttle response, shift patterns, suspension settings and differential locking for the conditions. Program choices include Auto, Sport, Snow, Trailer, and two Off-road modes that increase the ride height and fording depth by offering up to 12 inches of ground clearance.8
  • 8. Look at the list of the safety features in most any SUV today, and you’ll be looking into the history of Mercedes-Benz. That’s because our engineers have been leading the way in safety for more than 60 years, about the time they invented the first crumple zone. In the1970s, they earned a patent for the air bag. In the decades to follow, they pioneered a portfolio of safety breakthroughs that went on to become industry standards — like the Antilock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Stability Program (ESP® ) and emergency-sensing Brake Assist (BAS® ). They were also first to bring side curtain air bags and the 4‑wheel Electronic Traction System (4‑ETS) to the world of SUVs. So when you examine the new 2013 GL‑Class, you’ll see more than a list of now-familiar safety features. You’ll discover advancements that predict tomorrow’s SUVs, while helping to protect your own tomorrow — and your family’s — starting today. The new COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST uses radar technology to warn the driver of a potential impact, and precisely adapted braking assist to help avoid it. PRE‑SAFE® can help to prepare front-seat occupants and their restraint systems before a collision happens. ATTENTION ASSIST can sense if the driver gets drowsy. As you travel on a rainy highway, the brakes intelligently act to disperse water buildup. And should any of the nine air bags be activated, the standard mbrace® system can automatically place a call for help.9 But every GL‑Class is more than a list of features — it’s an orchestrated safety system, engineered to make the most of the precious milliseconds it takes to avoid, or survive, a collision. “Safety first” is more than a motto to Mercedes-Benz engineers. It’s a long-held family value.  CLASS-LEADING SAFETY. IT RUNS IN THE FAMILY. GL 450 shown with Black paint and optional illuminated running boards, KEYLESS‑GO and PARKTRONIC. Please see endnotes at back of brochure.
  • 9. REVEAL Brilliant lighting. Bright white LED Daytime Running Lamps help make your presence more apparent to other drivers. LED taillamps feature three-dimensional fiber optics and LED turn signals. With the available Lighting Package,5 Bi‑Xenon headlamps create light that’s perceived more like natural daylight than halogen lamps. They also feature Active Curve Illumination and Adaptive Highbeam Assist. These two advanced systems continuously vary the angle and beam pattern of the headlamps, to maximize the illumination of curves and straightaways, without causing glare for other drivers. The package also includes headlamp washers. ATTENTION ASSIST. By continually monitoring a variety of driving behaviors, this Mercedes-Benz innovation can audibly and visually alert the driver if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips. More than 70 variables are measured in the first minutes of each drive, to establish a pattern and determine the warning thresholds accordingly.10 Blind Spot and Lane Keeping Assists. These optional systems5 can alert you to some unseen vehicles in the adjacent lane,11 and can warn you of unintended drifting across visible lane markings.10 Both systems are also available with advanced active technology that can help guide the vehicle back into its own lane if the driver disregards the alerts. Rear view camera. Shift to Reverse, and this standard feature shows a live view of the area behind your GL-Class on the large in-dash screen.12 PREPARE PRE-SAFE. A Mercedes-Benz first, PRE-SAFE can help detect instability during certain vehicle maneuvers that suggest that a collision or rollover is imminent. It can then tighten the front seat belts, and close the 1st- and 2nd-row windows and the sunroof — all in an effort to better prepare the occupants and restraint systems in the moments before a collision.13 Accident avoidance. Two safety systems pioneered by Mercedes-Benz help you avoid potential collisions. The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) responds to help keep the vehicle on course during extreme maneuvers.7 Brake Assist can maximize braking pressure if it detects an emergency braking situation, potentially shortening your overall stopping distance.14 Adaptive braking. The 4‑wheel disc brakes incorporate technology to help make driving more reassuring and relaxing in a variety of situations. If the driver lifts off the accelerator quickly, Predictive Brake Priming sets the pads closer to the discs for quicker response. In the rain, Automatic Brake Drying periodically applies the brakes gently, to sweep away water buildup. Hill-Start Assist helps prevent unwanted rollback during uphill starts. And a HOLD feature can help make stop-and-go traffic easier. Downhill Speed Regulation (DSR) can automatically maintain a preset crawl speed down steep inclines, for a more secure descent off-road.14 Towing. Every GL‑Class can tow up to 7,500 lbs when equipped with the optional trailer hitch.6 Standard Trailer Stability Assist integrates with the sensors for ESP to help detect trailer oscillation when towing. REACT COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST. At speeds above 20 mph, this new system’s radar-based technology alerts the driver if they’re approaching a vehicle ahead at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. Its Adaptive Brake Assist automatically provides the ideal level of braking as soon as the driver steps on the brake pedal. And if deemed necessary, the system can also activate PRE-SAFE. Along with helping to prevent or reduce the severity of a collision, the system’s engagement of the brake lamps can help to alert the drivers behind your GL‑Class earlier as well.15 DISTRONIC PLUS. This optional radar-based cruise control system, yet another Mercedes-Benz innovation, adapts your set speed in response to the flow of traffic ahead — automatically slowing until your path is clear again. If the vehicle ahead slows to a stop, DISTRONIC PLUS can also brake to a full halt, then resume automatically when traffic starts going.16 PRE-SAFE Brake. Even if you’re not using cruise control, DISTRONIC PLUS can help detect an impending collision with a vehicle ahead. Its PRE‑SAFE Brake system can alert the driver and automatically apply up to 100% braking force, to help reduce the severity of an impact.14 Nine air bags. Within the rigid, high-strength steel-reinforced uni-body structure of the 2013 GL‑Class, nine air bags offer 13-way protection.17 A driver’s knee air bag further augments the dual-stage front air bags. In addition to four side-impact air bags, side curtain air bags are provided for all three seating rows. And the outboard seat belts in all three rows include Emergency Tensioning Devices (ETDs) and belt-force limiters.
  • 10.  FAR AHEAD. BUT WITHIN EASY REACH.  INNOVATION FOR YOU, AND FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS. The GL-Class cockpit is more than a showcase of what’s new in user-friendly technology. It’s also a platform for what comes next. The new Mercedes-Benz mbrace2™ system brings the power and reach of the Internet to its stylishly functional dashboard, with an array of useful apps you already enjoy at home.9 Furthermore, its groundbreaking engineering allows for updates and future apps to be installed over the air. The abundance of features already in place throughout its cabin deliver innovative luxury with intuitive logic. Its multifunction steering wheel, elegant central controller, 7" in-dash screen18 and colorful 3D instruments put a world of information and entertainment within easy reach and clear view.
