Mercedes-Benz GL Grand Edition, the departure of the GL

When any issue comes Grand Edition of any Mercedes-Benz means that their days are numbered, that generational change is very close and that will give the model a dignified retirement. It has gone through almost all existing models and also recently renovated and will not change if the way forward for the brand with the star. The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class was not going to be less and also have special farewell edition.

Five years and market leading Mercedes-Benz GL-Class since its release in 2006. At that time, if main rival, the Audi Q7 has been better success in our country, according to sales recorded by both models. That’s why I predict that this Mercedes-Benz GL Grand Edition limited penetration in our market. If the normal model is seldom seen on the streets, less will do a more exclusive and more expensive.

As in all editions Grand Edition, the changes from the normal model are basically aesthetic improvements and some interior materials. The Mercedes-Benz GL Grand Edition is no less and shows us a new front bumper with details such as redesigned to accommodate daytime running lights, darkened grille and a new optical groups also obscured.

As an option are also available upholstered in Nappa these. The steering wheel is finished in black leather with wood inserts (have not seen anywhere).

Further details of this Grand Edition are the mats with the distinctive insignia of the year, ambient light, black ceiling, stainless steel sports pedals with rubber inserts and door panels with details in stainless steel. Standard also includes the system Parktronic parking aid.
