At around $200,000, it will be the most expensive passenger vehicle produced in the United States. It’s an on-trend holiday gift for your spouse in The Current Year!

A pinnacle trim on the GLS, it transforms the luxurious family SUV into an ultra-luxurious family SUV and supplements its Mercedes badges with Maybach ones. This is a key difference to the pure Maybach models of the early and mid-2000s, as those sedans were not considered Mercedes models, and did not wear any Mercedes badging. With this new Maybach trim, Mercedes is aiming a little lower while still aiming out of reach of most consumers. Think CEO instead of sheik.

The Maybach GLS has technically been in production since September but experienced some delays to market earlier in the year as the plant shut down entirely due to COVID-19.

As you’d expect, there’s special paint, an interior of heightened vulgarity, and more impracticality for which you will pay extra. Buyers can order the third row of seats removed, and have the space instead function as a partition between the second-row captain’s chairs and a reduced cargo area. Wheels and grilles with hundreds of spokes and a two-tone paint job are also present. A 4.0-liter biturbo engine is standard, which makes 550 horsepower and rockets the GLS to 60 in 4.8 seconds.

It’s speeding to your local Mercedes-Benz showroom in December, so plan your finance accordingly.
