With a fresh new design, exclusive equipment, pioneering assistance systems, and efficient and agile engines, the restyled 2013MY GLK-Class reaffirms its leadership in the entry-level SUV segment. High-quality materials, new equipment, fully redesigned trim and new infotainment systems – nearly 1,000 new parts in total – are all part of the new GLK driving experience. The exterior gives the GLK an even more athletic look. The body combines classic off-road elements with the design language of the current Mercedes-Benz sedans. Tight lines, taut surfaces, and the smooth, well-proportioned front and rear ends blend perfectly with the GLK body design that clearly identifies it as a functional SUV. Beneath the newly-designed headlamps, both models feature LED daytime running lights framed in chrome. The radiator grille with two louvers and the Mercedes-Benz star at the center reflects the design language of current passenger car models. The biggest news, however, comes under the hood. While the existing GLK was only offered with a single engine, the new model will be available in two specs: the GLK350 with direct-injection 3.5-liter V6 now good for 302 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque (up from 268hp and 258 lb-ft), or the GLK250 BlueTEC diesel that, at 190 hp and 369 lb-ft, offers less power but far more twist from its 2.1 liters and four cylinders. Th 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK will be unveiled in two weeks at the New York Auto Show.
