PrancingHorse posted a topic in Indian CarsMercedes has started to roll out the GL SUV from its plant at Chakan, Pune. India is the first plant to start local production of the GL outside the Mercedes SUV plant in Tuscaloosa in the USA. Mercedes first started operations in India in 1995 with the E Class. This was followed by the S Class, C Class and then the M Class. The GL is the fifth model from the Mercedes line up to be assembled locally. The GL350 CDI is powered by a V6 diesel motor producing 258 bhp @3600 rpm and torque of 619 Nm between 1600 – 2400rpm. It goes from 0 to 100 kph in 7.9 seconds and goes to a top speed of 220 kph. The GL comes with a 7 Gtronic Plus automatic gearbox. It is longer, wider and taller than the outgoing model.I attended this roll out event at the Mercedes Plant in Pune.
