The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GL350 BlueTEC is powered by a 240-horsepower turbo-diesel 3.0-liter V6 engine. All models have a seven-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. The base 2015 GL350 BlueTEC earns an EPA-estimated 19/26 mpg city/highway.
There is so much to feed the senses in this truck, that prospective buyers might miss some of the advanced engineering underneath, like the magnesium reinforced dashboard or the aluminum hood and fenders. Mercedes-Benz claims the new GL-Class which includes not only the GL350 BTC but the GL450, GL550, and GL63 is about 200 pounds lighter than the previous-generation models, while still growing an inch here and there in length and width.
Overall, it’s advanced technology that gives the GL-Class a trump card. The GL-Class is stuffed with all bits of digital magic, and many of the systems are standard equipment, including the air-ride suspension that smoothes out all but the most rugged travel. The optional Active Curve System acts on the suspension to reduce lean in turns, meaning that your passengers can leave the Dramamine at home. Lean isn’t totally eliminated, but it is tamed.
Those who venture off-road should consider the off road package, which includes a pair of locking differentials and front underside protection.
