    • GLK receives facelift for 2013 - Diesel model coming, GLK 250 BlueTec - GLK350 gets direct injected M276 six cylinder

      The GLK did not look like it needed a facelift but it is getting one anyway. The headlight design has changed and it is clearly inspired by the new SL. The main changes we are interested in are those under the hood and the new GLK 250 BlueTec diesel is an interesting new option. The 2.1 liter four cylinder provides 190 horses and 369 pound-feet of torque which will make for a very nice option and offer a considerable increase over the GLK350's 16/22 mileage.

      The GLK350 does get upgraded as well however and now has direct injection getting the M276 3.5 liter V6 which puts out 302 horses and 273 pound-feet of torque. It also gets a start/stop cylinder deactivation system to boost mileage.

      A very well done facelift from Mercedes offering new engine choices. Most of the important changes coming are under the skin and that is just how we like it.

        They just changed the lights a bit, nothing major.
