Vehicle Overview
The GL-Class lineup consists of the diesel GL320 and the gas GL450 and GL550. The GL-series seats seven people with a third row seat. The GL competes with the Acura MDX and BMW X5.

What's new for 2009
The new Bluetec turbo-diesel V-6 is replacing the CDI diesel engine from the previous year. Also Mercedes' Pre-Safe collision-mitigation system is now standard equipment on all GL-Class models.

A raked hood imparts a sporty appearance that's augmented by the muscular flared wheel arches. Twin power domes running the length of the hood recall similar cues in the company's classic 300SL Gullwing sports cars.
  • Sporty appearance
  • GL550 has a different front grille, fender flares and 21-inch wheels

Seating for seven is standard, along with a new multimedia head unit featuring Bluetooth hands-free connectivity and advanced audio, video and navigation functions.
  • Command electronic system for entertainment, navigation and climate control
  • Keyless-Go standard on GL550
  • Wood and leather appointed interior
  • Seating for seven
  • Available rear DVD entertainment system

Under the Hood
Three engine options are available, depending on the model chosen. A seven-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard.
  • New Bluetec turbo-diesel V-6 produces 210 horsepower and 398 pounds-feet of torque
  • GL450's 335-hp, 4.6-liter V-8 produces 339 pounds-feet of torque
  • GL550's 382-hp, 5.5-liter V-8 produces 391 pounds-feet of torque

The GL-Class uses a combination of cheaper-to-replace bolt-on steel crash boxes and lightweight aluminum sections to minimize weight and repair expenses while maximizing crash safety. Other standard safety equipment includes:
  • Side curtain airbags for all three rows
  • Side-impact airbags for first and second rows
  • Antilock brakes
  • Electronic stability system
  • Pre-Safe collision-mitigation system
