2021 Mercedes-Maybach GLS Performance
The Maybach GLS performs precisely the way you'd think a twin-turbo V8 luxury SUV would perform: it's brutally effective in a straight line despite the fact you’ll seldom ever call upon its ability to hit the 0-60 mph dash in 4.8 seconds but is at its happiest cruising at highway speeds, where it can overtake unsuspecting family sedans with a mere dip of the big toe and reach its electronically governed top speed of 130 mph with ease. The Maybach GLS is motivated by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine which sends its power to all four wheels via a nine-speed automatic transmission. It’s effortlessly smooth, too, with the transmission tuned for refinement and the engine aided by a 48-volt mild-hybrid system called EQ Boost that helps it off the line and uses its 184-lb-ft electric motor to torque-fill any gap in the powerband, while also aiding a towing capacity of 7,700 lbs. With a total power output of 550 hp and 538 lb-ft of torque, performance should be enough for most, but if you want to go even faster, you can always look at the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63, which trades plushness for speed, churning out 603 horsepower.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
The EPA has given the GLS600 fuel economy ratings of 15 mpg city and 19 mpg highway. Those aren’t particularly efficient estimates, but we’re certain the big spenders who will be cross-shopping the GLS600 against the likes of the Bentley Bentayga and the Rolls-Royce Cullinan won’t be too concerned with fuel efficiency. When we get a chance to test the GLS600, we’ll take it on our 75-mph highway fuel economy test route and update this story with results. For more information about the GLS-class’s fuel economy, visit the EPA’s website.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
A suite of high-tech driver-assistance features is standard to give your chauffeur a hand on long trips. For more information about the GLS600’s crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:
- Standard automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection
- Standard lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist
- Standard adaptive cruise control with semi-autonomous driving mode
