Functions such as the recognition of expenses or STEER CONTROL reduce the strain on the driver in critical driving situations such as the boundary with the steering supports the driver with the momentum on the steering wheel if the vehicle is oversteering.
2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Features
One innovation and highlight the new GL is a standard crosswind Assist supports the driver intentionally braking action when there are strong crosswinds, thereby increasing the sense of security. Also available to optimize vehicle safety is optional as distance control system DISTRONIC PLUS, BAS PLUS braking assistant or the PRE-SAFE ® Brake with autonomous braking function in certain dangerous situations that have not been recognized by the driver. Easy parking assistant secured by Active-Park. The system is able to detect a suitable parking space and directing GL automatically to the best position for parking.
2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Engine
Both engines for the GL 350 BlueTEC BlueTEC 4MATIC and GL 500 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY with direct injection gasoline engine supercharged BlueDIRECT provide highly efficient performance and exceptional. Fuel consumption of the GL 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC is 7.4 liters of diesel per hundred kilometers, which is about 20 percent less than its predecessor, and at the same time cutting the European Union in the future 6 emission standards. Fuel consumption of 320 kW (435 hp) gasoline engine powerful GL 500 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY has been reduced by 18 percent. With the model change is being enriched by the GL range AMG version for the first time. In GL63 AMG high-performance SUV, AMG 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine delivers performance above 410 kW (557 hp) and maximum torque of 760 Nm. GL63 AMG accelerates from zero to 100 km / h in 4.9 seconds, it has a top speed of 250 km / h (electronically limited). NEFZ fuel consumption is 12.3 liters per 100 kilometers (288 g CO2/km).
In addition to engine technology state-of-the-art technology, extensive BlueEFFICIENCY package supports exceptional fuel consumption economy. This includes seven new gear automatic transmission 7G-TRONIC PLUS and the standard ECO stop-start function. Intelligent generator management, electric power steering and reduces the rolling resistance of the tire also has an effect on fuel economy.

2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Safety Features
Application of safety brake system equipped with “Forward Collision Warning” that satisfies the requirements of the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and be able to:
Identify the distance to the vehicle ahead as too low in the speed range 30-250 km / h.
Detecting a decrease in the distance. Where there is a risk of collision, the driver receives visual and audible warnings.
Detecting stationary obstacles along the path of motion and issue appropriate warnings.
Identifying certain driving situations, such as driving in traffic queues, and adapting the trigger threshold for warning and adaptive brake assistant accordingly.
In terms of the risk of collision, calculates the proper braking force ideally needed to avoid impact and make best use possible of the remaining distance. This inherently increases the likelihood of a driver following about himself to avoid rear-end impact.
Readjusting the brake pressure when the situation changes – if the vehicle in front speeds up, the brake pressure is returned to the level demanded by the driver, if the distance to the vehicle ahead or stop driving drops, the brake pressure is increased even further.
Activate, if necessary, preventative safety system PRE-SAFE ® as or belt tensioners.
