Were there any changes to standard equipment/features of GLS '18 vs '17?

I wanted to know if anything changed from MY 17 to 18. Also is MB planning to revamp GLS in '19 MY?

    Hello @kenny_h_ There were quite a few changes done for 2017. Highlights include modified exterior styling, a newly standard nine-speed automatic transmission (except on the AMG GLS 63) and a touchpad-operated infotainment system with a larger screen and available Apple CarPlay. Also, all engines except the GLS450's turbocharged V6 get a bit more horsepower this year. I am not seeing any noticeable changes for 2018.

    There is zero information for 2019, but I would imagine there would be a few changes for 2019. Generally speaking vehicles do not go two years without a few minor changes. It is just to early to tell what will be different on the 2019.

    Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!

    Thank you so much Blake, great info. So it should be safe to go with 17 (hopefully with major discounts) in October instead of 18. I wish they kept the large headlights of 15 or earlier models but even the LED headlamps is a good improvement over standard non LED ones. Thanks again.

    Hello @kenny_h_ Thanks for the prompt response! If you can get a very sizable discount later on this year on the GLS, I see no problem going with a 2017. I would agree LEDs are always a good improvement.

    Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!
