It's mindbogglingly to think of the amount of work that goes into a new model. I wonder how many different people are involved. The entire car industry is fascinating.

Yep, it's funny as in the last few weeks nothing new, no new info, but if you look on the net 99% say it's coming for 2019 model.

Also, I assume this means the 2019 GLS X167 will be at the NY Auto show?

There is a lot of competition, the GLS needs to be stepped up!

I've confirmed the 2019 GLS will be a NEW MODEL, but we always knew it would be, right?

Who confirmed it? And you're right about my question to Fab, why would dealers travel to Cabo to see the same model, D'oh.

I'm a GLE guy - didn't the W166 ML (2012) come out a year before the X166 GL (2013)? Given that the W167 has not been officially announced yet, but is imminent, I would think the 2019 GLS will be a refreshed carryover model? I wouldn't think they would bring both out at the same time.

If those fugly air vents and riculoud dash hold bar make it to the GLS, that would be a deal killer for me.

And for him to suggest the GLS may not be ready until next year based on some hidden taillights is silly. My money is with Fab's posts.

Despite the shared architecture, in both the last two generations the GL(S) came out the year after the ML (GLE). ML 2005, GL 2006; ML 2012, GL 2013. Correct?
