How Much Does a Fully Loaded 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLS Cost?
The Mercedes-Benz GLS serves as the Tri-Star brand’s full-size SUV offering, one that is less off-road-centric than the G-Class. So, how much can car shoppers expect to pay for a new GLS luxury SUV, from bottom to top of its trim level options? Here’s how much a fully loaded 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class costs.
The 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLS starts at $87,000 MSRP
The GLS has been slightly revamped for 2024. It now sports a more squared-off front fascia with a revised grille, LED headlights, and a redesigned steering wheel. Mercedes has also upped the power output of the base 3.0-liter inline-six engine from 362 to 375 horsepower. The twin-turbo V8 fitted to the midrange 580 model is bumped to 510 hp up from 483.
The 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 starts at $87,000 MSRP. Though pricier than some competitors, the GLS is well-appointed with plenty of luxe features.
Standard features include all-wheel drive, an air suspension, a 48-volt mild hybrid system, adaptive dampening, and 21-inch wheels. Notable interior features include synthetic leather upholstery, 64-color ambient lighting, synthetic leather-wrapped dash trim, heated and ventilated front seats with memory settings, a power liftgate, remote start, power-folding third row, four-zone automatic climate control, and a panoramic roof.
Connectivity includes dual 12.3-inch displays, navigation with route-based speed adaptation, a Burmester surround sound system, satellite radio, a two-way in-car communication system, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
For safety concerns, a forward collision mitigation system, blind-spot warning, a surround-view camera, and an automatic parking system are standard. The GLS also features navigation with augmented reality.
The 2024 AMG GLS 63 commands $145,850
Those seeking the ultimate in luxury and performance can opt for the AMG-tuned GLS 63 model, which cranks out 603 horsepower and starts at $145,850 MSRP. In addition to a performance version of the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 of the GLS 580 model, the top model’s transmission, suspension, steering, brake, exhaust, and all-wheel drive system receive the AMG treatment. The Mercedes-Benz GLS 63 also includes a limited-slip rear differential and drive mode controls on the steering wheel.
Additional luxe amenities include massaging front seats with a rapid-heating system, a heated steering wheel, heated/cooled front cupholders, a cabin fragrance and air-purification system, Nappa leather upholstery, and heated second-row seats.
The MBUX Interior Assistant, a head-up display, and AMG’s Track Pace system are also standard.

Several options packages are available for the 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLS. The GLS 450 can be upgraded to Exclusive trim for $1,750, which adds heated second-row seats and massaging front seats with rapid heating.
