The 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLS three-row large SUV has higher prices all round in time for the new model year.

    Prices have risen between $6398 and $8528 depending on trim level.

    The range now opens at $155,298 before on-road costs for the base GLS450 4Matic and extends to $262,700 before on-road costs for the flagship Mercedes-AMG GLS63 4Matic+.

    According to a Mercedes-Benz spokesperson, the price rises are due to a number of outside influences.

    This current third-generation GLS-Class has been on sale here in Australia since 2019.

    To the end of August 2021, Mercedes-Benz has sold 684 GLS-Class SUVs according to VFACTS. It’s at the top of its segment, outselling the BMW X7 and Land Rover Discovery.
