The 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class arrives with a fresh look for the whole range, including the Maybach and AMG variants. They'll be on sale in the United States later this year.
The regular GLS receives slight styling upgrades. The four louvers in the grille have a Silver Shadow finish. The bumper features air inlet grilles with high-gloss black surrounds. The taillights have a signet motif that comes from three horizontal blocks. The new paint choices are Twilight Blue Metallic and Manufaktur Alpine Grey Non-Metallic.

Inside, the MBUX infotainment system receives new display choices. There are three graphic styles: Classic, Sporty, and Discreet. In addition, there are three modes: Navigation, Assistance, and Service. Drivers can select from seven color schemes, too. In the Off-Road setting, the screen shows the vehicle's tilt angles, compass, and the camera view from underneath the front bumper.
Mercedes offers some new upholstery options in the GLS. There's now Catalana Beige and Bahia Brown leather. The trim choices include High-Gloss Brown Linden Wood and Manufaktur Piano Lacquer Flowing Lines.
