2024 Mercedes-Benz GLS Gets Freshened Up with New Face and Features. The 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLS-class dons a new mug as part of a mid-cycle refresh.
Most updates also apply to the AMG GLS63 and Maybach GLS600, with all three variants adding new exterior and interior features.
The Benz-branded GLS450 and GLS580 see their engine output rise to 375 and 510 horsepower, respectively.
The high-performance AMG GLS63 and the ultra-luxurious Maybach GLS600 also get in on the update action.
Like its smaller sibling the GLE, the GLS gets a facelift but also improved features and better software.
The Mercedes Benz GLS-Class already was a handsome and powerful luxury SUV with a very generous interior design. This three-row wasn’t perfect—the infotainment could be confusing to use, and the E-Active Body Control (E-ABC) system’s ride didn’t really deliver greater comfort or enhanced control as you’d expect it to, but it’s a well-packaged mover for well-heeled families. For 2024, it seems Mercedes listened and promised to make those little things better. Oh, and to help you pick out these updated GLS-Class SUVs, Benz updated their appearance slightly.
Overall, the shape of the 2024 Mercedes Benz GLS Class doesn’t change, as it’s mostly the same three-box SUV sold last year. Freshened lighting front and rear, new reverse lights nestled up next to the third brake light, and last year’s amber front reflectors are gone. The “angel eye” and daytime running lights (DRL) are smaller, too.
It also appears that Mercedes has removed the “GLS” and “4MATIC” badging from the lift gate, but opted to retain the chrome trim and star emblem as well as the dual polished exhaust tips coming out from under the rear valance.
