Post Mercedes GLS - A competition for BMW X6?

Another BMW rival from Mercedes!

Autocar UK have reported that Mercedes Benz is set to come up with a new BMW X6-rivalling model called the GLS, and is scheduled for a launch in 2014.

I did not know that X6 is such a big draw that Merc has to come up with a rival model. But if the small picture given in the article is an indicator, this Merc looks way better than the X6

Information courtesy: Autocar UK
Relevant URL: Merc 'GLS' SUV aims at X6 - Autocar.co.uk

Moderators: Not sure if this was reported in any other threads. Did a search for Mercedes GLS before posting this. If there is a duplicate thread/post, please help to merge. Thank you!

Isn't that small picture shown in the article that of the new M Class?

Yes, the new ML looks a stunner, and a coupe-ish design based on the ML should be pretty cool.

Even though BMW X6 was ridiculed, I guess this one segment going to see lot of activities in the next few years. Audi Q6 will be another candidate to enter the competition.
