The luxury crossover, which will cost 170,000 euros, will be built on the basis of the new generation GLS model and will be presented in November this year.

Mercedes-Maybach plans to introduce its first production crossover in November this year. This was reported by Autocar, citing a source familiar with the situation. According to preliminary data, car prices will start from 170,000 euros. The key markets for machinery are China and North America. The main competitors of the new items are called Bentley Bentayga and Rolls-Royce Cullinan. The production of new items will be established at the plant in Alabama (USA). Now the GLS, GLE and GLE Coupe models are being assembled at this enterprise.

The luxury crossover will be built on the basis of the new generation GLS model. According to unofficial data, the range of car engines will include a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 gasoline engine. The engine will work in conjunction with a nine-speed automatic transmission and 4Matic all-wheel drive system. Also, the car will receive an Air Body Control air suspension, thanks to which it is fashionable to change the ride height of the crossover. In addition, the appearance of a 6.0-liter V12 engine is not ruled out.

The design of the car will receive the features of the co-conceptual Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury crossover and the prototype Mercedes-Maybach Vision 6. Coupe from the standard new-generation Mercedes-Benz GLS Maybach crossover can be distinguished thanks to a proprietary radiator grille with vertical elements, additional chrome and other rims. As for the interior with three rows of seats, it will be made in the style of a Mercedes-Maybach sedan, but with the specifics inherent in a large crossover.

Maybach was founded in 1909 and existed until the 1950s as a manufacturer of ultra-luxury cars. The brand was revived by Mercedes-Benz in 2002 and again discontinued in 2012 due to extremely low sales volumes. In 2014, Mercedes-Benz decided to return Maybach to the market as a sub-brand, under which the company sells S-Class sedans in an elongated version and top-end trim levels.
