Initially, the new GL-class will be imported as completely built units. The model likely to be launched here is the GL 350 CDI powered by a 2987cc turbo-common rail diesel motor which is good for 255bhp and 63.2kgm of torque mated to a 7-speed G-Tronic automatic gearbox. Like the smaller M-class, Mercedes plans to assemble the GL in India from SKD kits imported from the USA by the end of this year. There is no word on pricing yet.
Following the launch of the new GL-class, Mercedes will launch the all-new A-class on May 30 and a diesel variant for the B-class later this year.
