The Emergence Of A Maybach Suv Deferred
After the Maybach has evolved from an independent brand in the name of one of the most luxurious trim levels of the Mercedes-Benz S-class, the manufacturer did not have any obstacles for the expansion of this line. However, the release announced luxury SUV will have to wait.
Last year the leadership of Mercedes-Benz announced the emergence under the sub-brand Maybach potential rival luxury SUVs from Bentley and Rolls-Royce. It is assumed that it will be built on the platform of the Mercedes-Benz GL, which will soon have to endure not only a restyling and rebranding: the campaign to rename off-road line of its largest representative will be referred to as GLS. The last letter should hint at its ideological affinity with the automobile the flagship S-class.
Meanwhile, the restyling of the model head of Mercedes-Benz is not considered sufficient reason for the construction of ultra-luxury version. As said the publication Autocar, the company's head of sales Ola Kallenius, buyers will not understand if the new model will be the current platform. Therefore, the creation of the Mercedes-Maybach GLS pending before the birth of the new generation SUV, which, presumably, will be built on the "cart" the current S-class.
It is expected that off-road Maybach will get the same powertrains as the sedan. Thus, he is almost guaranteed, for example, six-liter V12. In addition, the SUV will develop another modification of the four-liter V8 turbo c, but the appearance of under its hood diesel engine is not expected. Mercedes-Benz decided that the main markets for the new items will be China and the U.S., and in these countries the units on "heavy fuel" do not enjoy great popularity.
Mercedes-Benz GLS must change generation in 2017. Thus, before the advent of off-road "Maybach" remained at least three years.
