The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz isn’t planning on offering an AMG version for the upcoming generation of the GLK, because it might not be feasible.
Developing a powerful AMG version for the future generation of the Mercedes-Benz GLK might not be in the books for the carmaker because, according to the AMG boss Tobias Moers, this model isn’t “seen” on the market so far. If you’re waiting to see what Mercedes-Benz has installed in the future GLK generation, you should probably head over to the dealership and order the facelifted one because the upcoming variant will hit the market sometimes in 2015.
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLK will ride on the same MRA platform used on the new C-Class generation, but that’s about all the info we have for now on the brand new GLK. As a quick reminder, the outgoing Mercedes-Benz GLK has been in production since 2008 and it’s being sold in Europe, North America and other markets. The model is getting a choice of four engines and it’s being assembled in Germany, in China and in Egypt. The outgoing GLK is also based on the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
