Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2023 Mercedes GLS Facelift

Changes however will be minimal and limited to small updates to the front and rear

Although relatively new on the market, the third generation Mercedes-Benz GLS is about to receive a small update - just like all the other models in the lineup. The third generation GLS was announced at the 2019 New York International Auto Show and was followed by a Mercedes-Maybach version is late 2019. What’s weird is that Mercedes started to test the facelifted Maybach version before the standard SUV. However, today our spy photographers are offering us some spy shots of the biggest SUV in the Mercedes line-up, the GLS facelift. And that’s only a few days after the smaller crossover, the facelifted GLA was also caught testing.

It’s time for AMG to take command of the GLC SUV

We are fond of the new-generation GLC SUV, which brings better design, tech, and performance to the table. However, with Mercedes’ promise of electrification, it is confirmed that the next AMG GLC 63 SUV will be offered with a hybridized turbo inline-four, unlike the previous iteration’s V-8. Our spy photographers caught a nearly unmasked AMG GLC 63 with a more aggressive front and rear bumper design.

New Mercedes AMG C-Class Hauls Around the Nürburgring...Quietly

New Mercedes AMG C-Class Hauls Around the Nürburgring...Quietly

Will the hybrid 2-liter turbo take away the AMG’s soul?

A Mercedes AMG C-Class without a V-8 would have been considered unthinkable ten years ago. Back then, the 6.2-liter V-8, which had one of the best exhaust soundtracks since the turn of the century, was dropped in nearly every AMG model in production. This meant that the German car industry was awash with glorious rumbles, snorts, growls, and bellows from Merc’s handcrafted naturally aspirated V-8. Then, by 2016 the current-generation C-Class was in full production with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 that was more efficient and powerful than the old 6.2 but lacked some noise and character.

Changes will be minimal, which is the same case for the rest of the GLE lineup

Updated: The GLE Coupe has been caught testing on the track, and this could be the last time we see it before it is officially revealed. As expected, the changes to the exterior design are still minimal, but they are enough to make it look fresh without making the current model look too old. The biggest highlights include an updated front and rear fascia, a new grille design, updated headlights, and a new matrix for the taillights. Changes inside will be minimal, but an updated infotainment system is expected as is an updated steering wheel.

The bad news is that the next GLC offers no surprise when in terms of design language: as expected, it looks pretty much identical to the new generation C-Class.
