According to the German Auto Bild, the Mercedes-Benz GLG has not received a ‘green light’ yet on production. It does not even have a clear name, but Mercedes will certainly release the model, given the opportunities the manufacturer has mastered recently.
Apparently, the new GLG should be based on the GLE platform. It will be developed to compete with the Range Rover Sport. As a result, we should see a vehicle with more off-road features than most Mercedes-Benz SUVs.
This car should be equipped with a height-adjustable air suspension as standard, three locking differentials and a special off-road chassis package.
The next-generation GLE, on which the GLG will be based, should be released before the end of 2020. Thus, the German auto giant will take some time to create a new model. Probably, it is about four to five years before the launch of the new car
