The Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class might have entered the market without the S in its name, but after the company shook up its crossover and SUV portfolio, it ascended to the top of the Mercedes hierarchy.

The Mercedes GLS-Class functions effectively as the S-Class of its crossover and SUV lineup, and sports the largest footprint you’ll find on a road-going ‘Benz. This three-row Family Truckster saw a styling refresh last year, for the 2024 model year. This brings a new grille and a new front fascia, among other more subtle styling changes.


Thankfully, the 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8 stuck around as standard in GLS 580 4Matic guise. This V8 sends 510 hp and 538 lb-ft of torque through a nine-speed automatic to all four wheels by way of the 4Matic all-wheel-drive system.
