The latest rumor has Mercedes releasing a baby SUV tagged the GLC or the Geländecoupé – Auto Zeitung published the first details of, what they claim is, the 2014 GLC.  Being built to possibly compete with BMW’s X4, the Mercedes-Benz GLC will be around 14 1/2 feet long and will be available with a two wheel drive system as standard and a Four Wheel Drive as an option. Using the same powertrains as the C-Class and E-Class , it is expected the GLC will come equipped with the 1.8-liter four cylinder gasoline engine with 204 hp or the 2.2-liter four cylinder diesel with 170hp. With the development of a new platform for the Mercedes-Benz A and B-Class is underway, it may also be used for the new Mercedes crossover vehicle.
