The Mercedes GLS now has a hotter, sexier sister that wears a Maybach badge and a whole lot of model-exclusive features. Naturally, the interior is the epitome of luxury, ranking up there with the best of the best, but the exterior has been updated to make it stand out in the GLS lineup as well. This includes the two-tone exterior finish, the massive chrome grille, and the cheese grater-like insert in the front fascia. That part we can’t really get onboard with but the rest of it looks amazing.

Under the hood sits an AMG-sourced V-8 that’s paired with a 48-volt electrical system and EQ boost. The engine alone delivers 558 horsepower and 538 pound-feet of torque while the EQ Boost function pumps out another 22 ponies and 184 pound-feet. So, despite the lack of the usual V-12 engine, this Maybach will get you to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds but will top out at 155 mph when the electronic governor kicks in. Sales for this luxrious people mover kicks off in the second half of 2020 and pricing is expect to start out north of the $200,000 mark.
