The 2020 Mercedes-Maybach GLS shows its face before China debut. The most luxurious SUV in Mercedes’ range will introduced on November 21st, at the Guangzhou Auto Show.
Mercedes-Maybach teased today on Mercedes’ official Facebook page its first-ever SUV, based on the architecture of the current generation Mercedes-Benz GLS. As expected, the new SUV prepared by Mercedes-Maybach will have a more generous wheelbase than the one currently offered by GLS (3,135 millimeters), and the design would also be influenced by the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury concept.
The interior of the new SUV will be offered either in five-seater version or in a special four-seater version. The new SUV prepared by the German manufacturer will take over some of the interior elements we have already seen on the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class. At the same time, the 2020 Mercedes-Maybach GLS has been designed to offer performance, comfort and, of course, generous space for the rear passengers.
To begin with, the new model prepared by Mercedes-Maybach will be equipped with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that will be coupled to a nine-speed automatic gearbox and an all-wheel drive system. At the same time, the Germans will offer as standard the Air Body Control air suspension. Some insiders mention that Mercedes-Maybach will offer the new SUV with a V12 engine as well.
The first SUV developed by Mercedes-Maybach will compete with models such as Bentley Bentayga, Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Range Rover SV Autobiography.
