Mercedes' new uber-wagon has been spied testing in Europe this week. These new images reveal that while it will remain as boxy as its predecessor, the new GL-Class will get all of Merc's new front- and rear-end style.

The now-familiar upright grille dominates the face of the new GL, flanked by wave-like headlights inspired by the decidedly sleeker CLS four-door coupe.

The front bumper features a set of daytime running lights, and the lower skid plate sits beneath larger air intakes.

At the rear, there's a new taillight design that reaches into the tailgate, beneath a rooftop spoiler - although that will likely figure as an optional feature.

While the new GL-Class is known to be based on a version of the platform underpinning the new ML (also featured in the new Jeep Grand Cherokee), further technical details remain unclear.

Powertrain options are expected to include Mercedes' new direct-injected V6 and V8 engines - and in the case of the AMG variant, that should included the new 5.5 litre twin-turbo V8.

In Australia, the current-generation GL-Class is powered by a 3.0 litre V6 turbo-diesel producing 165kW and 510Nm of torque, and a 285kW/530Nm 5.5 litre petrol V8.
