Mercedes’ GLS SUV was already at the top of its range in terms of bespoke luxury, but apparently, that wasn’t enough for the transcendental brand. To give it an even greater road-faring appeal, the outfit has announced an exclusive Maybach-branded model, complete with related ornamentation, accessories, and lavish upgrades.
The Mercedes-Maybach GLS is an exercise in excess, but we aren’t complaining. It lays claim to the luxury throne through the implementation of an impressive suite of features, including rising/lowering ride height for easier entry, electronically controlled roller sunblinds, E-ACTIVE body control, and a high-end Burmester 3D Surround Sound system. Inside, buyers will find foldable tables, a refrigerator, and Executive Climate control, which remembers their preferred settings and keeps the cabin of the SUV at a precise temperature during use. This pairs perfectly with the GLS’s massaging and reclining chairs, which keep you secure can comfortable as you utilize its 550 horsepower, twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine. Of course, this doesn’t come cheap. The new GLS is now Mercedes’ most expensive SUV, clocking in at a mind-blowing $161,550 and up. Head to the brand’s website for more information.
