A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Loading Comparison...


The Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV, a three-row flagship, was until last year known as simply the GL, but the S was added to its name to raise its stature, make it sound more like the S-Class sedans, because Mercedes-Benz considers it to be the S-Class of SUVs.

We think it’s close, but not quite. Not even with 2017 changes to styling, cabin, infotainment, and powertrain, a new 9-speed automatic transmission intended to boost the fuel mileage a bit.

We drove the new GLS in the Austrian Alps, where we found it to be relatively nimble in the tight curves, despite its size, nearly 17 feet long. Its ride is smooth on standard air suspension, and it handles like a much smaller vehicle.

There are four models, three of them with 4MATIC all-wheel drive, each with a different engine: one diesel, one V6 and two V8s, all turbocharged. They are the GLS 350d 4MATIC, GLS 450 4MATIC, GLS 550 4MATIC, and the AMG GLS63 uber-performance sports SUV.

The GLS 350d uses a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel making 255 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque. The GLS 450 uses a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 making 362 hp and 369 lb-ft. The GLS 550 uses a 4.7-liter twin-turbo V8 making 449 horsepower and 516 pound-feet; it’s the tow master of the line, if not the class. And if you want to give six young soccer players a real thrill, pack them into the 577-horsepower AMG GLS 63, and hammer the throttle so they can feel 561 pound-feet of torque under their butts, and hear the howl of its 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8.

There is an available offroad package that raises the ground clearance from 8.5 to 12.0 inches. So it can look brutal: way big and way high.

The GLS offers room in all three rows, a rare thing with any SUV; in fact, two six-footers can fit in the third-row seat, with adequate headroom and legroom, although it will take some agility to get back there. The 50/50 third row folds on each side with the push of a power button, and when the second row is also folded (manual or power), there’s almost as much cargo space as a Cadillac Escalade with long wheelbase.

The GLS350d, with its diesel engine, gets the best mileage of the models, EPA-rated at 22 miles per gallon Combined city and highway. The GLS450 with its V6 gets 17/22/19 mpg City/Highway/Combined. The GLS550 with its V8 is rated 14/18/16 mpg, and the AMG GLS63 gets just 14 miles per gallon Combined, but what do you expect with 577 humongous horsepower?

The government and insurance industry haven’t crash-tested the GLS because of its low volume, but there’s little doubt that it won’t come out ahead in a crash with another vehicle, or maybe even a brick wall. Standard safety equipment includes six airbags in front, side curtain airbags extending to the third row, and the Collision Prevention Assist Plus program, that warns the driver of a possible crash with an object ahead, and applies the brakes if the driver doesn’t respond quickly enough.


The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS includes the GLS350d, GLS450, GLS550, AMG GLS63.

Optional safety systems include Active Blind-Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist that tugs on the steering wheel when sensors think you’re wandering, and automatic braking for pedestrians you might miss.

Optional opulent features include heated and cooled cupholders, ventilated front seats, designo leather upholstery, and Harman/Kardon or Bang & Olufsen sound systems.


The 2017 change to the face of the GLS makes it look bolder, with a wider grille with two bars that look like a biplane wing, a bigger three-point star emblem, racier air dam, two long power bulges on the hood, and more aggressively sculpted fenders.

But it still looks dated, the same upright boxy shape with vertical tailgate that’s been there for five years. At least the styling shows more class and less chrome than some luxury SUVs.

The lights (front and rear), bumpers, and alloy wheels are also redesigned for 2017. Taillamps and DRLs are now LED.

The GLS 550 has fender flares around 21-inch wheels, while the AMG GLS 63 has its own body pieces. There are exterior packages that add things like aprons, running boards, and side flaps that don’t sound very Mercedes-like to us.


The cabin of the GLS cavernous, comfortable, and almost as versatile as a minivan while being far more luxurious. The textures and trim are tops. The interior palette ranges from black leather with piano black dash to Ginger Beige and Espresso Brown. Lighter shades of leather and trim make the cabin feel more airy, as does the optional glass sunroof that’s so big it extends over the rear seat.

The instrument panel, console, steering wheel and display screen have been redesigned. The screen now rises from the dash like other Mercedes cars and SUVs. There are two large all-digital instruments behind the steering wheel, separated by a smaller info panel. The COMAND system infotainment knob is on the center console. The metal-trimmed vents stand out for their rectangularity, as most new vehicles have round vents nowadays.

The front seats are supremely comfortable, with standard heat and eight-way power. Available comforts include four modes shiatsu-while-you-drive, from slow to fast and vigorous.

Wide rear doors make it easy to climb in and out. The second row flips and folds with a feature called Easy Entry, either a manual handle or power actuator that’s noisier than we would expect from a Mercedes. With the seats up there’s only 16 cubic feet of cargo seat in back, but with the third-row down there’s 49.4 cubic feet.

With the 50/50 split power-folding third row of seats up, the GLS has a modest 16 cubic feet of cargo space. Flip them forward and that rises to 49.4 cubic feet, and with both rows folded there’s a very spacious 93.8 cubic feet.

The GLS is quiet inside at 70 mph, despite its blocky aerodynamics. Even the open sunroof doesn’t add much wind noise.

Driving Impressions

The GLS is one of the most composed full-size SUVs on the planet. On the road, it doesn’t feel 17 feet long, for sure. It feels almost like a C-Class sedan. Its standard Airmatic air suspension delivers a soft ride, better than the Escalade or any SUV with a live rear axle, and especially in Comfort, the default mode.

In the parking lot, you’ll know for sure it’s 17 feet long. However its light steering makes it easy to maneuver, and its 40.7-foot turning circle is tight for its size. In the Austrian Alps, where we drove the new GLS, we could toss it around the climbing hairpin turns. There is some body roll, but there’s an optional Active Curve system that electronically stiffens the front and rear anti-roll bars. We drove a model with this system, and found we preferred the GLS without it, because it felt more natural.

We also prefer the standard 19-inch wheels and tires, rather than the big wheels with low-profile tires that add bounce. The variable-ratio steering on standard wheels and tires doesn’t deliver a lot of feedback, but its resistance is about right.

The three all-wheel-drive 4MATIC models use the new 9-speed automatic transmission, but the powerful AMG GLS63 needs the beefier and older 7-speed automatic. There’s some turbo lag in all of the engines, and the 9-speed uses that lag time to kick down two or three gears when you floor it, for example on a freeway onramp. The tall ninth gear keeps the rpm below 2000 at freeway speeds.

The Dynamic Select dial enables five drive modes. There’s Comfort, Sport, Slippery (we like the name of that one), Off-Road, and Individual, to mix the functions to personal preferences. We think this last one is overkill, a bit complex for owners, and too precise because road surfaces change so quickly.

The available Off-Road Engineering package adds a sixth mode, Off-Road+, with a locking center differential and additional reduction gear to enable a crawl over rocky ground. It also lifts the GLS to one foot of ground clearance.

Comfort is the default mode, and it’s a good one, for family trips and good fuel economy. But we loved Sport mode in the Alps; it gives a bunch more power, stiffens up the suspension, and makes the steering heavier and tighter.

We used Slippery mode as well, facing some icy roads and snowy Tyrolean mountain trails. Our GLS was confident and sure-footed, running down hills at 25 to 35 mph in rutted snow, as the anti-lock brakes stopped the big SUV quickly. Thanks to its sophisticated electronics controlling the vehicle’s power and traction delivery, the GLS will be safer in American winters than just about any vehicle we can think of.


The Mercedes-Benz GLS is not without competitors for the crown of ultimate full-size luxury SUV, but when you look at each category, it’s consistently up there. Four engine choices give it versatility, four entrants in sub-categories. We can’t see any dealbreakers, except maybe price.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
