2017 Mercedes-Benz SUV Towing Capacities

You load sixteen tons and what do you get? Another day older and deeper and debt. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz lineup is now available in its entirety and with it are new towing capacity specifications.

How To Calculate Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW)

To calculate the amount a vehicle will weigh at maximum capacity, add payload to curb weight.

New 2017 GLS

The GLC, GLE, and GLS were all introduced at the same time last year, but only the GLC and the GLE went into production. That means for 2017, really the only difference is the substitution of the GL-Class for the GLS. Actually, the name is where the difference ends when it comes to performance. Both the GL-Class and the GLS share the same maximum towing capacity.

Which 2017 Mercedes-Benz Has The Highest Towing Capacity?

The Mercedes-Benz with the highest towing capacity in the United States and anywhere else is the GLS with a maximum towing capacity of 7,500 pounds. It is the only vehicle in the fleet to offer this amount of utility by 300 pounds and also offers the most interior capacity.

Which Mercedes-Benz SUV Weighs The Most?

Given its size relative to the rest of the Mercedes-Benz SUV lineup, you might think the GLS is the heaviest Mercedes-Benz available. Actually, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz G-Class weighs the most out of any Mercedes-Benz passenger vehicle.

    Are the towing capacities listed braked or unbraked? for example the GLC 3500 lbs for an unbraked or braked trailer?

    Could this pull a 2018 24 foot Airstream Trailer?

    Why on earth are the AMG G’s so anemic for towing, can’t even come close to towing my 33′ Airstream travel trailer. As robust as the G-Class is, I can only assume it’s incapable of braking above 7,000lbs … so why not have an option for a larger / more-robust braking system for those of us who have larger toys to pull??? Mercedes is leaving itself out of a growing (and well-heeled!) market here.
