Current range of the Mercedes GL SUV, the top of the range models with all wheel drive in Mercedes offer, will receive a new engine.
New reports suggest that under its hood we will find the 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine. The car will use the name GL400 and will guarantee 333 horsepower along with a healthy torque of 480 Nm. With the help of this engine, the GL400 can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.7 seconds, a pretty good time when you think that the car weights more than two tons.
The maximum speed can reach 240 km/h or 149 mph. Not so good numbers regarding the average consumption and emissions, because the numbers show 9.2 L/100km (25.5 mpg US / 30.7 mpg UK) and CO2 emissions of 215 g/km.
The new engine will first be available in Germany, with United States following in autumn. The european price for the version will start at 76.000 euros in the mother country.
