The first delivery of the GLS ends badly. First delivery in the nation : http://www.wkyt.com/content/news/Sem...376240261.html

Wasn't the first delivery, but one of the first. Shame either way

Anybody know if the 2nd row headrests in the GLS still have that problem of sticking out or have they finally been redesigned?

Also, is it me or do the new 20" wheels look like cheap knockoffs of the previous generations?

Read somewhere that the new headrests doesn't have that spring action. So hopefully its resolved. The Easy-Entry option makes it worse as they can't be removed. Poor engineering by Mercedes, when GL's all about comfort! My wife hates it every time she sits in the back with kids.

You are right about 20" wheels.

Fab posted some time ago that they have fix this issue. The head rest still sticks out as before if you get the EASY-ENTRY option but it is now on a spring release so if a small child or a baby set is press against it, it will swing back and out of the way.

Yes this is fixed with the GLS.

I think the new 20 inch wheels look better. I like the new 19 inch ones too.

I was reading the specs and options of 2017 gls 450 with the options to see if soft close doors are available in Canada. I have all the options and still was not able to find any info.
Anyone know if soft close door is available in Canada?

Great news, the GLS550 I order came in today and the dealer called to work out a better offer. We met in the middle and agreed on price. We're picking it up tomorrow. I'll post some pictures in the GLS Owners Pictures thread soon.

There are two GLS450s on my local dealer's lots, one pre-sold. My GLS63 is due in on May 6 (one week from now!) after three ETA date changes. I built it in late January.
