Advanced performance comes from a high-output yet compact 4.0L biturbo V8 with hybrid electric assist.. Exceptional output of 550 hp and 538 lb-ft of peak torque moves the Mercedes-Maybach GLS with confidence, grace, and a sense of urgency evidenced by a 4.8-second 0-60 time. Racing-derived technology ranges from its turbocharger layout to its low-friction NANOSLIDE cylinder walls. And its high-pressure Direct Injection and rapid-multispark ignition can self-tune on the fly with millisecond speed and molecular precision.
Electrifying the V8 biturbo gasoline engine is an innovative Integrated Starter-Generator. It teams with a 48-volt lithium-ion battery to supply power for formerly belt-driven components like the water pump and air-conditioning compressor. These advancements help reduce weight and enhance underhood packaging. And it can generate additional power and torque for immediate response 100% electrically.
An ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations, to save fuel and reduce emissions. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for quick acceleration response. An added benefit of the Integrated Starter-Generator is how it can make the restart process more seamlessly smooth than ever before. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time.
An advanced version of 4MATIC® can automatically send from zero to 100% of the engine's torque to either axle, front or rear. A transfer case with a multi-disc clutch can vary the torque distribution based on the driving conditions in the moment. While this allows for precise response to varying surfaces and individual-wheel traction off-road and in inclement weather, it can also enhance cornering in any season by favorably influencing the vehicle's handling.
In stature, poise and presence, there is nothing quite like the Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600. Grand proportions flow into elegant details from the chrome mesh grilles in its front apron to a standing hood Star and bespoke rear emblems. Signature Maybach elements are rendered in polished chrome, including its distinctive upright grille, door-pillar accents and bladelike lower side trim. Along with a choice of two exclusive wheel designs, they elevate the GLS, itself the S-Class of SUVs, to a state of majesty.
A bespoke grille design captures the eye even before the Mercedes-Maybach's power, grace and thoughtfulness can captivate its driver and passengers. Fine vertical chrome vanes, each with a blade-like detail as it nears the upper frame of the grille, are bisected by a wider, tapering central chrome rib. A subtly etched nameplate is inset near the top center, itself crowned by the hood-mounted Star to express the name "Mercedes-Maybach" and the values the pairing represents.
Mercedes-Maybach logos illuminate in a soft white glow as you open each door, to welcome you into the cabin or ease your exit.
Grey Oak wood is finished in an ultramodern low sheen and rich color that bring out its natural grain and linear grain. It accents the dash, console paneling, doors, front seatbacks and rear cabin partition, elegantly complementing their satin aluminum detailing.
Hand-finished wood to match the cabin is paired with supple Nappa leather side grips, a treat for the eye and the hands.
Four individual zones offer personalized comfort to each side of the front and rear cabins. In addition to fully automatic or manual control of blower speed and airflow distribution, the system includes sun and humidity sensors, a dust/pollen filter, and an activated charcoal filter that automatically recirculates cabin air upon detecting a significant increase in smog. The in-dash controls can adjust all zones, while rear passengers can use the detachable MBUX tablet in the center console.
The Air Balance system teams activated charcoal filtration with an ionizer that uses an electrical charge to create the same fresh-air sensation you experience after a summer storm. Airborne impurities and odors are virtually eliminated from the cabin to provide air quality that's more enjoyable and healthier, especially for those with asthma or allergies.
Offering sweeping skyward views to front- and rear-seat passengers, this fully functional glass sunroof features a front panel that can either tilt up for ventilation or slide over the rear panel for an open-air feeling. Dual interior power shades allow occupants to adjust the amount of sunlight entering the cabin. A 50% larger viewing area lets passengers enjoy a greater view of the sun and stars.
HANDS-FREE ACCESS lets you power-open or close the trunk with a gentle "kick" of your foot under the rear bumper. It's a convenience you'll really appreciate when you've got an armful of packages.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For added protection, the Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty offers continued peace of mind with prolonged coverage tailored to your needs.
Radar-based technology can alert you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as you start to brake, it can automatically provide an appropriate level of braking to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, it can also initiate braking automatically at a range of driving speeds. The system can also detect and react to crossing pedestrians at typical city speeds.
The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST® continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior, and can automatically alert the driver with both visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips. With enhanced sensitivity, the system can also help detect drivers who begin their trip drowsy, and offer more useful information to drivers along their journey via a dashboard display.
A Mercedes-Benz innovation, Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC cruise control uses radar-based technology to adapt your set speed in response to the flow of traffic ahead. If traffic slows down, it can reduce your speed automatically until your path clears. If the vehicle ahead slows to a stop, it can brake to a full halt. When traffic moves, you can resume with just a tap of the accelerator or cruise control button, or it can resume automatically if the stop is under 30 seconds.
This breakthrough system can activate if you initiate an evasive maneuver while the vehicle's sensors detect an impending risk of collision with a pedestrian in your path. The system can provide a calculated steering force to assist you in executing the move, then can help ease the straightening of the vehicle in the adjacent lane after the maneuver.
