Highlights in the 2019 GLS
The biggest reasons people choose conventional sedans over luxury sedans is the huge price difference between them. When it comes to full-size SUVs, however, the price gap is far less. That being said, not all options are the same. The GLS has a few highlights that can’t be said of the QX80, the first of which is engine options. Opting for the GLS will allow you to choose between the three different engines that exist for the GLS 450 4MATIC®, GLS 550 4MATIC®, and the AMG® GLS 63. The base GLS 450 4MATIC® comes with a powerful yet efficient 3.0L V6 twin-turbo engine that delivers 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, while the GLS 550 4MATIC® offers 449 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. If that’s not enough, upgrade to the AMG® GLS 63 and you’ll be treated to a whopping 577 horsepower and 561 lb-ft of torque.
The interior is another area where the GLS excels ahead of the QX80. Many reviews point to Infiniti’s outdated interior styling and lack of upgraded materials and technology. Mercedes-Benz, however, is the complete opposite. Renowned for their innovative technology and industry-firsts (ATTENTION ASSIST® and PRE-SAFE® come to mind), the GLS is only getting better year after year. Some of the equipment you’ll find available throughout the GLS trim levels include heated/ventilated front seats with massage feature, 3-zone climate control, COMAND® navigation, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and much more.
