The facelifted Mercedes-Benz GL has been caught on camera once again while undergoing testing in the Death Valley, United States.

Set to come out shortly after the 2015/2016 ML facelift, the larger GL is bound to receive a modestly updated front fascia with a fresh grille and a different bumper. The prototype spotted testing in the Death Valley had the dashboard covered in order to hide the standalone screen seen on most recent Mercedes-Benz products which will also find its way inside the facelifted GL.

These are probably the only changes planned for the full-size SUV since the engine lineup is expected to be carried over, including the 333 PS twin-turbo V6 3.0-liter in the recently introduced GL400 which sprints to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 6.7 seconds and tops out at 149 mph (240 km/h), not too shabby for a vehicle that weighs almost 2.5 tons.

The facelifted GL will probably be offered for three model years since an all-new model is expected around 2017 as a 2018MY and is rumored to get a high-end Maybach derivative, a treatment which will likely be applied onto the S-Class Coupe and the ML Coupe / MLC.
