Expected price GLS450

Hi,

How much over the new GLE450 can we expect the price to be?
The GLE was too small for our family...

According to this it will debut Friday 19 April.

Stalked one of the local prototypes today. Got these quick pics. Interior much like the GLE for the front. Not sure if ever confirmed but this one I believe is the 550/560 version and has staggered wheels.

i would have asked about the motors but was at a school and didnít want to disturbe the father who was driving.

I was told by my CA a couple of weeks ago,that initially only the inline 6 will be available.There will be another non AMG V8 but he said it isnít in the ordering system yet,so he doesnít know when it will be available.It seems strange that Canada is getting this ordering info before the US.I am in Toronto.

If I can get one of them in a more public space I plan to ask them about the interior and more. Tell them here hold my phone so you know i wont take any pics of the interior.

My buddy says itís very nice inside but no real details other than confirming things like the engines and course will have MBUX. Said dash is much like the GLE.

Is it a norm now for MB to release the 63 model a year after the launch of the non AMG models? Makes no sense IMO.

I mean the engines and MBUX are a given. The looks will be the key factor. Just a larger GLE or some GLE mixed in with some new elements. The only engine wildcard would be a GLS500 with the 429hp I6 from the Euro S500 and AMG "53" cars. Of course there will be a GLS450, GLS560 and GLS63 AMG.

What do you guess that the length of the car is?

Is it longer then the previous model or the same?

Each time I have been near it we have been in my car and not our GL. I will try to check size realitive to my car vs our GL or side by side if in the GL.

There are 2 in the area we live and I travel towards the plant 1-2x per week around similar times they are going back and forth. Yesterdayí was when they werenít heading in the their neighborhood or on the interstate.

Hope to catch while out shopping soon. Keep you updated.

Man I really appreciate your efforts!

Hope it is not longer then the previous one, parking spaces in EU and specially Sweden are smal.

We were going for the new GLE but when we saw it IRL it was so small. Wife said no, we are going for the new GLS!

Happy wife, happy life!

When I bought my 550 in Ď13, I did so because the price diff when buying certain options was < $500 - the 500/550 includes more options. Did you consider that? I know itís hard without prices.

Can you walk through the X7 captains chairs to get to the 3rd row or at least can kids?

If that's not possible on the GLS I'm not so sure if there is a benefit. We really just want a much better alternative than a minivan...

Looking at the seats in this GLE 53, it gives me hope on the new GLS. Seems closer to an S class already.

Do you remember if there were any suspension options? I have Active Curve on my 2014 GL and it is amazing. Active roll stabilization for the corners and extra soft for the straights. On the new GLE, the "curve" optional air suspension is an 8K surcharge.
