Mercedes-Benz Australia has updated its GL-Class SUV range for 2015, bringing a revised model line-up, new pricing and additional features.
Two of the three existing variants have received price-cuts since last year, while another has seen around $4500 added to its price tag and a new model joins the range.
The GL 350 BlueTEC Limited Edition kicks off the 2015 GL-Class range at $114,900 plus on-road costs, while the GL 350 BlueTEC Edition S rises to $134,900.
The 2014-spec GL 350 was available as a single variant for $129,930 plus on-roads, so the entry-level price for the GL-Class has fallen by a sizable $14,645.
The step up to the GL 500 Edition S is now $4470 further than before, with the model carrying the new starting price of $159,900.
The GL 63 AMG performer still tops the range, and is now $2030 cheaper than before, priced at $214,900 plus on-roads.
Power for GL 350 models still comes from a 3.0 litre six-cylinder turbo-diesel engine producing 190kW and 620Nm, while the petrol-powered GL 500 gets a 320kW/700Nm 4.7 litre V8.
The AMG model is powered by a 5.5 litre petrol V8 making 410kW and 760Nm. All models feature all-wheel-drive and a seven-speed automatic transmission.
New features for the GL 350 include an updated 20-inch wheel design and standard metallic paint on the outside, while the interior gets a DAB+ digital radio, revised woodgrain trim and push-button start.
GL 350 Edition S models add 21-inch wheels, Benz’s Active Curve System and a performance brake package, along with AMG Sport body kit options.
The GL 500 Edition S also gets AMG Sport options and 21-inch wheels along with a digital TV, heated and cooled cup-holders and a panoramic sunroof.
GL 63 AMG buyers now get the AMG Driver’s Package and new interior features including hi-spec leather trim (previously a $5000 option) and heated and cooled front seats.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is expected to arrive in local showrooms soon - stay tuned to TMR for more.
