The X7 was a contender on paper, but not since the wife has seen the pics. Damn, it's ugly.
similar boat here. sold a vehicle 5 months ago! and have been waiting on x7 to fill the void. Not for me, that vehicle. Rolling the dice I can wait on next gen gls. Iím guessing they wonít be hitting dealer lots for 13-18 months but have no idea tho. Ballpark stab based on availability of GLE

2019 GLS 450 2017 E300 Sport
I had 8 months left on my 2017 GLS 450 lease. Don't like the way the X7 looks and the third row seat leg room is a couple inches less than that of the current GLS. Traded my white 2017 last week for a black 2019 with appearance, lighting and three zone climate....coming from the s**t halogen lights, the LEDs look amazing...I'll drive this one 2 to 3 years...by that time the hype of the 2020 X167 will be diminished and they would have ironed out some of the bugs associated with any new redesign. It made sense for me to make this move now and wait a couple years before going for the redesign.

Mercedes-Maybach GLS Spied For The First Time

"If the reports are accurate, the Mercedes-Maybach GLS will debut as early as the end of this month during the Los Angeles Auto Show. Autocar has it on good authority we are only a few weeks away from the SUV’s debut, and presumably, the regular versions are going to be exhibited in California as well."

That's what I'm waiting to see. And will the Maybach version be 3 rows or just an ultra luxurious 2 row.

BMW is debuting the X7 at the LA show in a few weeks. I doubt MB debuts the new GLS there. I doubt they want to share the spotlight.

From C-NET Road/Show:

Mercedes-Benz is swan-diving into luxury's deepest waters by unveiling the Mercedes-Maybach GLS SUV in LA. Mercedes is never one to be left out of a luxury segment. The Mercedes-Maybach GLS will rise to the occasion of providing German competition to the likes of the Bentley Bentayga and Rolls-Royce Cullinan.

I think they are basically mimicking the rollout of the X7. Show the concept version well in advance (18 months) of delivering the production version. In this case, instead of it being the concept, it will be the Maybach version.

Looks that way to me at least. I don't see production version reaching customers til Spring 2020

Finally a great looking wheel. You can't go wrong with a classic 5 star wheel. Never ages.

Those are the AMG wheels. They've been available for years on the current model if you choose the AMG pkg for the 550 or the AMG GLS63.

I really wish the AMG pkg would be available on the GLS450 though.

I think you're correct, the show starts Friday and still no mention of it on the LA Auto Show web site.

I don't know where c-net and other news outlets get their info but the GLS is a no-show at LA. However, the 2020 GLE is on display. If you haven't seen it yet, the front seating area and dash of the upcoming GLS should look nearly identical to the GLE. Check out this video from the show:

fwiw the dealer by me saying October for GLS deliveries. which trims, i'm not sure. but I figure more will be available sooner since GLE production will have been ramped and there will be parts sharing between the two

Mercedes is really missing the boat not showing this at the LA autoshow.

cool fab. could mean a Geneva intro.

i would be willing to bet that the interior space is far better resolved than the x7. I expect more space between captains, more legroom second row, more everything third row

gle has 3Ē more in second row than x7, current gls has 1.5Ē more in third row (along with 2Ē more shoulder and head room).

cant wait to hear more

my current gen interior is functional but not much to look at, which is totally fine for me. Iím more interested in packing it full of stuff and people and driving it hard under all weather conditions. And there is currently no vehicle that can do all those things as well.
Same! in a GLS550 - love the power and some of the 'S' like bells and whistles but at the end of the day it's a very capable people and gear hauler for us. Great road, ski camping, beach trip, school, sports carpooler. I wouldn't want to pay much more for one!

What about the 550 body kit being available for the 450 like our Europe counterparts?
