Check out the second-row headrest in one of the test mules, completely different from the current headrest:

I was thinking its a redesign due to the issues reported by many buyers with smaller children. The Maybach GLS will have captain's chairs, if your willing to take out a 2nd mortgage.

I still love how nothing on google still for anything recent on the 2019 GLS has popped up. With what we know, it's kinda funny. Either all the excitement is here on this forum, or as a whole, it's not a big deal

I thinks it points to one thing, MB is about to unveil the new GLS and they don't want any leaks. Fab's gone completely silent because he and any others invited to see it are sworn to secrecy. Look for the DOG to be available very soon. Then we will see what's coming.

Possible but not likely since it starts 3/30/18. More likely a later show.

We're going to NYIAS next weekend. Press day was yesterday and the only things MB was showing as new were the facelift and power increase on the C's, the G63, and the GT-4. As was mentioned, Fab has gone completely silent. I think that speaks volumes. True test is if in a few days he replies again to other threads but not this one. That would mean something big is coming.

Does press day normally reveal everything or do they keep surprises in their pockets?

it's interesting, i really do like what lincoln is doing these days. but i can't speak to customer satisfaction or if they have sustainable build quality. i know if i was going to go american for a big suv, i'd pick the navi over the escalade. the interior is something special, plus, the third row has a lot of room regardless of whether or not you choose the long wheelbase edition. i went to a local dealer to see a navigator in person and the guy said they wouldn't even have a demo on the lot til june or so. lincoln is selling every one they can manufacture.

i'm not sure mercedes considers lincoln competition in the mid size segment (GLE) or for the GLS, but being mindful of what interests the american shopper is something they are very committed to. excited to see what they have in store for the gle and gls.

New GLS vs GLE

i think everyone on the forum knows that but fabbrisd1 implied that the new GLS was going to released this year and he has always had very credible info on the forum.Maybe you should be posting your response to him.

It looks like you were right and I was wrong. All signs pointed to a 2019 X167.

Not by a long shot. I think they're going to do the first press releases around new year, leaks probably a bit earlier. Restart the speculation around October.

GLE will probably be released this summer, non auto show event, like at the factory in AL is my guess. GLS **may** get a November introduction at the L.A. auto show.
