The German tuning house Carlsson have developed a tuning package for the new Mercedes-Benz GL. Carlsson's designers have created a sportier look to the biggest Mercedes-Benz on the market today.

The GL has received a full body kit which includes elements like a "lip" for the front spoiler, a new radiator grill, two hood ornaments, a new front bumper and a set of side skirts. The rear end of the GL has received a new rear bumper and two oval tips for its two exhausts. The aerodynamic kit for the Mercedes GL has a price tag of 10.119 euros with VAT included.

The Carlson team has decided that the GL must have a performance package that matches the looks, so they have developed a performance package for each type of engine that comes with the GL series. The high end version, the GL 500, which has the engine kit installed, develops 435 bhp at 6.00 rpm and 600 Nm of torque. The price tag of the engine kit is 3.799 euros including VAT and also includes new software for the injection system and a new sport valve intake kit.

The diesel engine rage of the GL has received software tweaks which are performed through a new ECU. The price of a Calsson powerbox for the diesel Mercedes-Benz GL if between 1.545 euros and 1.783 euros with VAT included.

The GL has also received a new suspension kit called C-Tronic. The new suspension control unit, Airmatic, offers a lower ground clearance by 30 mm and modifies continuously the suspension setting depending on the terrain. The suspension package is available only for the GL models that have Airmatic suspension. The price tag is 1.309 euros with VAT included.
