Model Preview

The Mercedes-Benz model lineup is shaping up to look a lot different over the next few years, and the introduction of the GLG-Class is a good example of the changes to come. Mercedes hasn’t given us an official release on the upcoming SUV, but here’s what we know about it so far.

Mercedes announced intentions of streamlining its lineup to continue a focus on luxury and electrification. As a result, several models will either be conglomerated or killed off entirely. That being said, there still is room for a new SUV in the GLG.

According to Motor Trend, Mercedes is mulling the possibility of a smaller more affordable SUV that echoes the styling cues of the full-sized G-Class. The report also states that Mercedes CEO Ola Källenius “absolutely” is on board with the idea, but there hasn’t been an official announcement from the company yet.

Since no official statements have been made, the GLG’s powertrain situation is also unconfirmed. Motor Trend again reports that the prospective SUV is expected to ride on the Mercedes Modular Architecture. This platform can support both EVs and internal combustion vehicles, but the GLG is expected to arrive as an all-electric model. Mercedes has confirmed that EVs on the MMA platform can support an 800-volt battery system, and go from 10-80% charged in just 30 minutes.

No release date has been announced or even confirmed for the 2026 Mercedes-Benz GLG-Class. We’ll be able to form a pricing estimate once more details about the vehicle are confirmed, but we expect it to start considerably less than the “regular” G-Class’ monumental $141,050 starting price.
