The new 2018 GLS x167

Came across this just recently, I don't speak German, but appears to be the very first look at the new x167 GLS.





For some reason original page got removed, but here's a Google cache of it:

If anyone speaks German and can translate, please do...

The roof rails and overall roof lines are different from the current GLS, so this does appear to be a new body....

English translation:

For the first time now be photographed X167 in Untertürkheim a test carrier of the upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLS variant of the series. To what extent this is, however, of a GLS, or to the next GLE with approximately 60 mm longer wheelbase, we can not be sure exactly this - the X167 series shows the earliest from around October 2018th.

The upcoming series 167 should not only a wide screen cockpit and touchpad maintained but possibly also a Touchscren. In addition to new ABC with road recognition we expect 4MATIC with Torque on demand and a Plug-in hybrid variant with a range of about 100 km. The 3rd row is retained, expect the wheelsets to 22 inches.

WRONG, WRONG, WRONG.

That is NOT a MB product. It is the ssyong or whatever they call it.

Look at the proportions of that thing, it is clearly pure Asian.


THINK GUYS!!! The original article got pulled because it IS NOT a Mercedes-Benz.
