Engine in the 2017 GLC
Under the hood of the 2017 GLC sits a lot of power for a midsize SUV. You probably already know that Mercedes-Benz produces some powerful engines, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the GLC pumps out 241-horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque from its 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 engine. If you care at all about the health of the environment, rest assured the GLC is taking care of it with widely variable timing of 16 valves and a 3-phase cooling system that reduce emissions. That’s some grade-A innovation.
With an engine like that you’d expect some additional performance features to top it all off. The 2017 GLC doesn’t disappoint with 4MATIC all-wheel drive to give you increased control when you need it most. Rather than giving equal power to each wheel, this feature cleverly distributes torque to the wheel or wheels that need it most. Switch between gears unnoticeably and smoothly with 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission with shift paddles for increased control. Trying to save fuel? With the Eco Start/Stop system, you’ll save gas and reduce emissions as your vehicle automatically turns off when idle.
This is your chance to take back control of the roads in an SUV that delivers power when you need it most. Not all SUVs are made the same, so once you sit behind the wheel of a 2017 GLC you’ll experience driving like never before.
