Instead of showing a next-generation mobility solution concept or a new pickup truck, Mercedes-Benz ripped the sheets off its current-generation GLS-Class SUV at the Detroit auto show, hiding a new Grand Edition trim package. The new package adds quilted leather seats and open-pore ash wood trim, plus a leather-trimmed dash. Your color palette is limited on this Grand Edition GLS — only white and brown on the inside, or “porcelain and espresso,” as ‘Benz calls them.
The outside of the GLS Grand Edition is essentially the same as the standard GLS, except for the 20-inch 10-spoke wheels for the GLS450 or 21-inch rolling stock for the GLS550 and an array of special badging. The new package will hit GLS option sheets in the middle of this year. If you’re interested in adding some extra luxe to your massive Mercedes three-row, it’ll set you back $6,000 if you want to add it to a GLS450 or $3,200 on the GLS550.
