What's Inside the 2019 GLC 300?

We all love options, and that’s where Mercedes-Benz tends to be ahead of their rivals. Each model comes with a variety of options to include as well as multiple trim levels. Though the GLC 300 is the base trim, it still has a power output similar to that of the Terrain Denali’s top trim. If you were to upgrade to the AMG® GLC 63 4MATIC® trim, for instance, you’d be looking at a whopping 469 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque as well as all-wheel drive and a 4,850-lb towing capacity. Even with the base GLC 300, you’re getting a solid 3,500-lb towing capacity, which is enough for a small camper or a couple ATVs. GMC did well with the 2019 Terrain Denali, but unfortunately, they just can’t quite match up to what Mercedes-Benz did with the 2019 GLC 300.
