It has only been two model years since the second-generation Mercedes-Benz GL-Class went on sale, but in addition to a new name, the full-size SUV is getting an updated look inside and out. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLS, as it is called starting 2015, has been renamed to create a more coherent naming structure across the lineup (after the GLA, GLC and GLE), and as the name suggests, the GLS will stand as the S-Class of SUVs. No small shoes to fill there.

Even though it will hit dealerships with a new name, the GLS isn’t a brand-new SUV, but a revised version of the second-generation GL-Class. As with most Mercedes-Benz facelifts, updates aren’t massive, but the GSL received just enough features to keep it fresh for a few more years. Besides the revised exterior features, the full-size hauled also gained an overhauled interior and upgraded drivetrains.

The seven-seater will hit U.S. dealerships in 2016 in four engine specs, including a diesel version and a performance-oriented AMG variant.

Updated 11/20/2015: The 2017 Mercedes GLS made its world debut at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show and will be put on sale on the North American market in March 2016. Check out the picture gallery for a set of new images taken live on the show’s floor.
