Based on the redesigned M-Class, the GL will have evolutionary styling with a two-bar grille and LED-infused headlights.

Engine options remain unconfirmed, but choices could include a 258 PS (190 kW / 255 hp) 3.0-liter V6 diesel and a 4.7-liter V8 petrol with 408 PS (300 kW / 402 hp). Eventually, we can expect an AMG variant with a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 that develops 525 PS (386 kW / 518 hp) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque.

The New York Auto Show kicks off on April 4th, so expect to learn more in the coming weeks.
