Mercedes-Benz is in the early stages of developing an update for its Maybach GLS-Class, the ultra-luxury version of the full-size GLS-Class.
The current generation GLS-Class 2020 model came on the scene in 2019, a year after the Maybach version arrived.
In the Mercedes tradition, the GLS-Class should receive a mid-cycle update for the 2024 model year, and changes pegged to regular SUVs should also be featured in the Maybach version.
The latest prototype of the updated Maybach GLS-Class only shows light camouflage gear, which means visual tweaks will be secondary. We can expect a new front fascia and new interior for the headlights. It also looks like the grill will be fixed.

The interior of the GLS-Class range, including the Maybach version, will also get some changes with this update. Our source recommends that S-Class components, such as the steering wheel design, make it GLS-class. We should also see updated graphics for digital instrument clusters and infotainment systems.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. The GLS-Class currently offers turbocharged inline-6 and V-8 engines in a light-hybrid configuration. The Maybach version comes exclusively on a GLS600 grade powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 that is good for 550 hp and 538 pound-feet of torque, a 48-volt light-hybrid setup capable of temporarily adding 21 hp and 14. lb-ft
Look for the updated GLS-Class range with the Maybach version to launch early 2023. As mentioned earlier, updated SUVs should come as a 2024 model
Mercedes plans to expand its Maybach range in the coming years, adding more personalization options and limited-edition models. Next line is a Maybach SL-Class, a car that will create a limited edition with a unique Speedstar body.
