Mercedes-Maybach is preparing to extend its line-up beyond the S-Class with a plush range-topping version of the upcoming third-generation GLS (formerly GL), and it will be preview the ultra-luxurious 4x4 later this month with a concept car.
Maybach is considered an important brand for Mercedes to develop given the rising demand for luxury models, particularly in the SUV sector, with rivals such as Bentley and Land Rover having notable success with the Bentayga and Range Rover respectively.
Mercedes has also seen strong growth of its AMG performance arm, which achieved 131,970 sales in 2017, and it would like to emulate this success with Maybach on a smaller but still profitable scale.
The new SUV was first reported to be on the cards by Autocar in 2016.
