Next generation 2015 X205 Mercedes-Benz GLK spotted testing - Gains size, room for GLK55/GLK63 AMG model?
Below you see the replacement for the current X204 generation Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class testing. What is most obvious is that the model is gaining some size. Why? With the upcoming entry level GLA-Class based on CLA platform set to take the entry level SUV position in the Mercedes lineup the GLK now has room to move slightly upscale both in price and presence. This also means there is finally room for an AMG model based on the GLK.
The GLA45 AMG is coming so if that vehicle gets an AMG variant and the M-Class as well as GL-Class have an AMG variants, why would the GLK be left out for the second generation? If it does get an AMG model which makes sense in BenzBoost's estimation expect it to have the brand new M177/M178 twin turbo 4.0 liter V8 AMG motor.
