4MATIC all-wheel drive is always engaged and delivers optimized torque to each wheel. It works with the vehicle's Electronic Stability Program and 4-wheel Electronic Traction System to maintain traction in corners and slippery conditions. When the system detects wheel slip, it redirects torque to wheels with the best grip.
The GL 350's AIRMATIC suspension uses electronically controlled air springs for optimum balance and handling. When additional clearance is needed, the GL 350 raises with the push of a button. At high speeds, the suspension automatically lowers the vehicle to increase aerodynamics, improve stability and boost fuel efficiency.
