Performance when you need it, with consumption staying low

6-cylinder diesel engines

The 6-cylinder diesel engines give the GL its power but at the same time go easy on your wallet, thanks to the cutting-edge technology deployed. All kinds of technologies make this possible: the crankcase, for example, is made from diecast aluminium and thanks to its low weight, contributes to the significant overall reduction in the engine weight.

Controlling the valves through the cam follower reduces friction and the material mass to be moved. This leads to lower consumption and wear-and-tear as well as significantly reduced noise pollution. In addition, the engines have a generator management system, which reduces fuel consumption.

You can choose between the GL 350 CDI 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY and GL 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC models.

  • Huge output: the dynamic V6 diesel engine in the GL 350 CDI 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY has an output of 195 kW with a maximum torque rating of 620 newton metres in the engine speed range 1600 to 2400 rpm.
  • Effective and efficient: thanks to the BlueTEC catalytic converter technology deployed, the GL 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC combines an impressive output of 155 kW and maximum torque rating of 540 newton metres with low consumption and low emissions.
  • Clean technology: the BlueTEC technology is particularly low on emissions and thus the BlueTEC model is one of few vehicles to comply with the strict Euro 6 emissions standard.
