Mercedes-Benz has announced its plans, officially, to offer the upcoming GLC in the United States.
If you were concerned that the upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLC will probably not make its way into the U.S. auto market, you can breathe now, because the car manufacturer has officially announced its plans to offer the midsize crossover across the nation. The model in question is just a day from its online unveil, as it will be introduced on the 17th of June, but it will be arriving in the U.S. in mid-November, in two versions, the GLC 300 and the GLC 300 4MATIC.
“The company continues to expand its highly desirable model range this year with the addition of the awe-inspiring new Mercedes-AMG GT S, the ultra-exclusive Mercedes-Maybach S600, the sporty and versatile GLE, the sleek and stylish new GLE Coupe and the highly anticipated new GLC that will succeed the popular GLK when it arrives in U.S. showrooms in late November. In addition, smart will also welcome a redesigned smart fortwo that will launch in the U.S. market in September”, says Mercedes-Benz in the press release.
The car manufacturer didn’t release any extra details on the successor of the popular GLK but rumor has it that the 300 and 300 4MATIC versions will be getting a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine under their hoods, rated at 241 HP (179 kW) and 369 Nm (273 lb-ft) of torque, with RWD and 4MATIC AWD respectively. The new midsize crossover will be riding on the same platform as the new C-Class generation and it will be sharing, in other markets, the engine lineup too. Additional details on the vehicle are limited for the moment.
