2021 Mercedes-Benz GLS vs 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS

While the 2020 Mercedes-Benz only had 2 ‘normal’ trims, for 2021 the GLS ramps things up by adding not only AMG trims, but Maybach trims as well! Let’s take a look at how these two models compare and what, exactly, has changed for this luxury SUV here in Scottsdale, AZ.

For the first time, you can get the iconic standing Mercedes-Benz star on the hood of an SUV! This distinctive feature is sure to stand out from the crowd and will mark your GLS as something truly unique. To begin, you’ll have a huge power boost in the 2021 model. While the 2020 GLS gives you a solid horsepower range of 362 – 483, depending on trim, the 2021 GLS is a showstopper with its range of 550 – 603 hp. The same can be said for the torque of both models. The 2021 GLS also shaves off 1.1 seconds for its 0-60 mph acceleration time, enabling it to accelerate with impressive speed and agility.
