The new GLS on a test drive in the sand desert. After its world premiere at the New York International Auto Show, the new GLS proved its on- and off-road capabilities in the sand. Under extreme conditions in the Amargosa Dunes – the so-called “Big Dune” around 100 miles northwest of Las Vegas/Nevada, USA – the new GLS was able to “free-swing” thanks to the e-ABC and its free-fall mode. With E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL, the driver can individually control the spring and damper forces on each wheel, thus counteracting roll, pitch and stroke movements.
Note: The test drive was carried out under the supervision of the responsible ranger in the areas released for testing in compliance with all necessary safety requirements.
