2015 GL450 Porcelain
1.Wait for the GLS. Otherwise, you will pay the same and get the less advanced tech in many packages. (like steering assist in Distronic Plus)
2.Get the porcelain, buy a leather cleaner, enjoy your superstar interior

1) Please understand tha MY2016 is GL - identical to MY 2015 - and "GLS" update will be MY2017.

2) Designo Porcelain interior is stunning - if you are concerned about stains - best peace-of-mind is the added Mercedes Interior Protection Package or Permaplate Package - whichever interior package your dealer offers.

Keep the beat !

I wonder if the refreshed GLS (MY2017) will go into production later this year. Several web sites have reported such a timeline but have you heard anything?

Just about every website I've seen states later this year.

There has been nothing from Mercedes that I have seen that brings a "refreshed" mid-mdel-year change to the GL - and nothing from Mercedes I have seen that has mentioned early MY2017 release.

I have also seen from "internet" inaccurate statements about the ML-to-GLE W166 changeover this Fall - and amazingly very/very/very little from the same internet sources on the GLE coupe - and many sites seemingly have understandable confusion between the GLE W166 and the GLE-coupe.

Also of note, Mercedes internally indicated the refreshed 2016 GLC will go into production later-than-normal - note later-than-normal - and GLC penciled in for production calendar year end this year - I suspect most likely be changeover to Vance production - but Mercedes has not yet confirmed production/where.
