Lightbulb 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class breaks cover ahead of NY debut

Filed under: New York Auto Show, SUV, Mercedes-Benz

The New York Auto Show is right around the corner, so let the embargo-break-a-palooza begin. Ahead of its official unveiling later this week, a few images of the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class have leaked onto the web, and if you're familiar with Merc's new design language, the updates to the big GL will come as no surprise.

Up front, the new headlamp design seen on the SLK and SL has translated to the GL, complete with LED running lamps flanking each side above large air intakes. The design almost looks AMG-like, and while we never truly warmed to the design of the current GL, we like the looks of this 2013 model. The interior design hasn't changed too much, though we're sure that nicer materials and more up-to-date tech are on tap.

As of this writing, no official powertrain details have been released, though we don't expect them to change a great deal from the current GL. We'll likely see a GL350 Bluetec model fitted with the delicious 3.0-liter diesel V6, as well as a GL550 with Merc's new twin-turbocharged 4.6-liter V8 underhood. Seven-speed automatics will surely be offered with either engine, and all of the power will be sent to the ground via 4Matic all-wheel drive.

We'll have the full suite of official details and images later this week, as well as live impressions direct from the New York show. Stay tuned.2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class breaks cover ahead of NY debut originally appeared on Autoblog on Mon, 02 Apr 2012 14:58:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
