    2020 Mercedes GLS Leaks Out ahead of NY Auto Show

      ...Big Benz Leaks Big...

    With most of the releases of the New York International Auto Show officially out already, there is not much left to leak.  However, there was still the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS that was yet to be seen.  A trove of those pictures have leaked out tonight.

    We'll leave these here for you to peruse and comment on, but as this is an unofficial leak there is no technical information available yet.

    Not much a departure from the current, but I think that is good.  The interior is a big upgrade, that is where the current model seems dated.  I like the sport front facia more than the standard, overall I think the exterior looks good, familiar but more modern.   The interior with the back seat upgrade looks more the like S-class of SUVs.  

    I assume the 48 volt I-6 is standard and the 4.0 V8 is optional.  

    Who picked that green paint?  They aren't going to sell many of those.

    Fun fact, they have another 3-row SUV debuting next week.

    At GM, shiny chrome = luxury.  At Mercedes it doesn't.   The GLS has done well, and they have to consider Chinese and European tastes also, as the USA is Mercedes' 3rd biggest market.  I think this will hit the mark.

    Best looking Green CUV from MB I have seen yet to date.

    Interior is Meh!

    Not sure why but I just do not get the interior design MB puts in them. The steering wheel reminds me of something 1980's, the grab holds on the center section between the seats clearly will be in the way of large people's legs and worse yet make people drop drinks and other stuff as they grab for stuff in the center area.

    Give them credit for doing a decent vents on this compared to the cheap ass circle ones they have on the cars that reminds me of cheap circle vents on the fords.

    I do like the large flat screen section of the dash, easy to read, see, etc. Rest looks right for the market, be interesting to see how comfortable the seats are.

    Exterior I do like and while @smk4565 does not think it will sell in Green, at least here in the PNW Green sells. White does not except to Asians looking for purity.

    I agree with @balthazar this does NOT look any more luxurious than the Buick.

    Looks great. These things are just fantastic vehicles. If i had to pick a big SUV to travel cross country in with a family and cargo in tow, it'd be a GLS all the way. I love the clean, subtle design here. Mercedes is doing some damn impressive things these days.

    Overall, I like it. It doesn't look like anything special and there's definitely zero "wow factor" to it. 

    You'd think they wouldn't have wanted to succeed to Lincoln in the interior game..but they certainly did. It's definitely an upgrade from the current one but it isn't a game changer. 

    Also, that green might not sell but boy-oh-boy is it pretty. I'm quite obsessed with dark "colors" lately. Dark green, dark blue, dark red... Love'm.

    I was just in a new 101K Navigator recently, and I can tell you right now, even at that trim level, they are not an equal to Mercedes interior finishes, materials, fitment, tactility, and quality.

    That said, I do like the the new Lincoln SUV's quite a lot, especially the Aviator.
