Highlights in the 2020 GLS

For drivers on a budget, the LX may make more sense at first glance. It offers a lower price tag than the GLS, with a savings of over $6,000. However, that’s about where the LX’s advantages end. The GLS is priced higher because it has more premium features. It has much more power under the hood, which amounts to a greater towing capacity and a more sporty overall driving experience. That goes hand-in-hand with the 9-speed transmission (the LX only has an 8-speed). The GLS also has more cargo space, and 13 speakers. Some of the other highlights in the 2020 GLS include:

  • Mercedes-Benz User Experience multimedia system
  • Five-zone automatic climate control
  • 64-color ambient lighting
  • Enlarged panoramic sunroof
  • DYNAMIC SELECT® driving mode selector
  • E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL® suspension
  • And much more!

While the LX looks like a spitting image of the Toyota Land Cruiser, the GLS is a maverick in its own right as an original model that cannot be duplicated. To learn more about the exclusive full-size luxury SUV from Mercedes-Benz, get in touch with our team or schedule a test drive with us today!
