Baku. Nijat Mustafayev – APA-Economics. In February, official Mercedes Benz dealer in Azerbaijan Autostar Kaukasus will import new GL-Class model to the country.

New Mercedes-Benz GL will be presented in Azerbaijan’s market with 3 engines. Thus, Predictably, the GL's update means the range also receives the latest engine offerings Mercedes-Benz has to offer, along with a sizable power increase across all three variants. The diesel-fueled GL350 BlueTec remains part of the GL lineup, and continues to use a 3.5-liter, SOHC turbo-diesel V-6. Thanks to some mild revisions, the motor now produces 240 hp at 3600 rpm and 455 lb-ft of torque from 1600-2400 rpm (the previous model cranked out 210 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque.) The 2013 GL450 continues to use a 4.7-liter, DOHC V-8, but it's far different than before. This new engine is part of Mercedes' new family of direct-injection, twin-turbocharged V-8s, and whips up 362 hp from 5000-6000 rpm, and 406 lb-ft of torque from 1500 to 4000 rpm. For comparison's sake, the non-turbocharged unit offered only 335 hp at 6000 rpm, along with 339 lb-ft of torque. Buyers seeking mad power can continue to jump straight to the over-the-top 2013 GL550. Like the 2013 GL450, the 550 now utilizes a twin-turbocharged direct-injection, 4.7-liter V-8, but it's far more powerful than the 5.5-liter V-8 it replaces. Output is rated at 429 hp at 5250 rpm, about 47-hp greater than the outgoing 5.5-liter V-8. Torque, however, is dramatically higher than before. The 5.5-liter produced a solid 391 lb-ft, but the 2013 GL550 offers a whopping 516 lb-ft, and delivers it between 1800 and 3500 rpm. Mercedes-Benz estimates that much power is enough to rocket the 5500-pound sled from 0-60 mph in only 5.5 seconds.

‘The new generation of Mercedes-Benz's seven-seat GL-Class will go on sale in Azerbaijan in February’, told the company.
