The introduction of the GLS 580 4MATIC marks the world première of a new electrified V8 petrol engine with a 48-volt onboard electrical system and integrated starter-generator. This engine has a displacement of about four liters and produces an output of 360 kW (489 hp) and 700 Nm of torque, with another 250 Nm of torque and 16 kW/22 hp of additional output temporarily on tap via EQ Boost.
The E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL active suspension on 48-volt basis offers outstanding suspension comfort, agile handling and a high degree of off-road capability. Like the GLE, the GLS features the latest generation of Mercedes-Benz driving assistance systems giving cooperative support to the driver. The new 4MATIC ensures great agility on the road and strong performance off the beaten track.
The GLS is equipped with the further advanced AIRMATIC air suspension system with ADS PLUS adaptive damping system as standard (option in USA/Canada). This set-up uses highly complex sensor systems and algorithms to adapt the damping characteristics to the road condition and the driving situation in real time.
