Subtle Facelift for Large Luxury SUV
The newly-updated styling of the 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class has pre-emptively been divulged prior to its intended unveiling next month.
A blurry snap, coming from @pershoo and posted on @Cochespias1’s Instagram account, unveils a modestly overhauled front fascia. To harmonize the three-row SUV with the modern Benz lineup, the German carmaker has endowed it with tighter headlamps.
The grille has also been modernized and appears bolder than before. Four horizontal bars give the GLS an impressive appearance, but we anticipate different types of grille designs – like the Star and Panamericana patterns – will be available for AMG and AMG Line variants.
Elsewhere, the underlying parts of the lower bumper have also been slightly shifted. The ports, together with the molding and special number tag rack, were additionally crafted specially for this model year.

The post provides viewers with an insight into the modern wheels that are being produced today. It offers a glimpse into the stylish and advanced vehicles which are making their debut in the automotive industry. This recent update not only gives spectators an idea of the current technology being implemented but also allows them to stay apprised of the most modern designs that car manufacturers are constantly developing.
It appears as though Mercedes may be keeping it straightforward with the facelift of the GLS-Class, comparable to the recently refurbished GLE-Class. Moreover, in a different Instagram post from @liucunyi_starandcar, the picture shows off the same model with its wheels, implying a traditional dual five-spoke style. Consequently, we surmise that fresh rims are likely to be offered.
Though we cannot detect it from the revealed pictures, one can assume the tail end of the larger GLS will receive some minor modifications should it reflect its predecessor, the smaller GLE. Additionally, more powerful engines – including an impressive 2.0-liter – were added to the smaller Mercedes SUV. It is unlikely that the massive GLS will be provided with such a potent 4-cylinder engine; however, we can safely anticipate upgrades to the 450 and 580 versions already available. In the GLE edition, these options have been promoted in terms of power output and now generate 375 and 510 horsepower accordingly.
It is to be hoped that by 2024, the Mercedes GLS will offer a fresh 400e plug-in hybrid configuration. With the formidable strength of 381 horses, it should provide the ideal blend of electrification and powerfulness.
Within the cushioned interior, a novel guiding wheel form is sure to be appreciated, as well as opulent influences bordering the air outlets, and possibly even fresh color options for the fabric. Moreover, Mercedes has now supplied the GLE with their new MBUX infotainment method which features a wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
While the recently overhauled GLE is considered a letdown when matched up with the newly altered BMW X5 and X6, the GLS-Class will put up a fight against the heftier X7. BMW’s grandest vehicle undeniably emanates luxury; still, last year’s makeover resulted in a dubious look, marked by parted headlights and an assertive character.
The more traditional GLS-Class has the potential to entice individuals with a less ostentatious inclination. Consequently, because of the expected rise in technology and coziness, it can finally vie with the X7 without appearing ancient or unadventurous.
