A new-generation 302-hp 3.5-liter V-6 combines numerous advances to deliver more torque over a wider range of rpm. Its rapid-multispark ignition fires up to four times per millisecond, while new high-pressure Direct Injection microscopically tunes the fuel spray, reducing emissions, fuel consumption and noise. A lightweight diecast-alloy block, quicker and more widely variable valve timing, reduced friction, and clever "on-demand" ancillary components like the alternator further boost efficiency.
In any season or road condition, 4MATIC™ all-wheel drive adds to your confidence and control. Always engaged and optimizing torque to every wheel, 4MATIC integrates with our standard Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) for maximum effectiveness in corners and slippery conditions. It also incorporates our 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS).
Muscular yet elegant new styling makes the GLK-Class more distinctive than ever. A bold new grille is flanked by intriguingly detailed headlamps that flow into its powerful hood and chiseled, flared fenders. Ruggedly angular and upright, the GLK is also aerodynamically refined to maximize efficiency, interior space and outward vision while minimizing wind noise. Short overhangs and powerful wheel arches set off the largest standard wheels in its class, while new LED front and rear lighting, a prominent rear spoiler and chrome-finished dual exhausts reveal its athletic nature.
