Categorical Towing Capabilities

The GLS offers all of the muscle and capability San Francisco Bay Area drivers expect from a Mercedes-Benz SUV. Crafted from tough yet sleek aluminum, the standard roof rails make transporting everything from sporting equipment to cargo carriers a breeze. What’s more, tacking on the available trailer hitch and wiring instantly gives any of the GLS SUVs the ability to trailer as much as 7,500 pounds, making it suitable for towing boats, campers, and more. For enhanced stability in tow mode, the GLS relies on the following:

  • 19- to 21-inch wheels
  • Trailer Stability Assist
  • Electronic Stability Program®
  • 4-Wheel Electronic Traction System®
  • Crosswind Assist

Cabin Convenience and Space

Offering generous space and comfort features across the board, the GLS is a pinnacle in the family vehicle segment. No matter the GLS SUV you choose, you’ll enjoy the comfort and practicality of the following features:

  • 8-inch COMAND® display with a console-mounted controller
  • Bluetooth®* phone and audio
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Premium LED interior lighting
  • Logo projectors in side mirrors
  • Heated front seats
  • MB-Tex upholstery
  • Power liftgate

For ample space during any journey, the 60/40-split second-row and 50/50-split third-row seats can be folded down to reveal a maximum cargo capacity of 94 cubic feet – a capacity that gives larger, costlier SUVs a run for their money. The cargo area itself includes a 12-volt power port, side parcel nets, a retractable/removable cargo cover, floor-mounted tie-downs, and a grocery bag hook for inimitable convenience during vacations and daily errands.

Proactive Safety Technologies

Some of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS SUVs’ most impressive features fall under the safety and security category. In addition to 11-way airbag protection, Brake Assist, and 3-point seatbelts, the GLS includes a rearview camera for a wide-angle view while in reverse, and rain-sensing wipers that modify intermittent frequency for optimal visibility during harsh weather. The GLS also features the following standard and optional systems:

  • ATTENTION ASSIST® monitors your driving behaviors while on the road, and notifies you visually and audibly if you’re showing signs of drowsiness.
  • The Active Brake Assist system scans the road ahead for oncoming vehicles and objects, and can aid you with emergency braking or apply the brakes autonomously on your behalf.
  • Standing by at all times, PRESAFE® preps the cabin and its occupants if a collision or rollover seems unavoidable.
  • Optional Adaptive Highbeam Assist works in tandem with the available active LED headlamps, and adjusts the strength of the LED beams, based on your distance from oncoming vehicles.
  • With the help of optional Blind Spot Assist, you can travel busy highways in confidence, knowing the system will alert you the moment a vehicle enters your blind zones.
