The plant is the traditional production location of the SUVs in the global production network of Mercedes-Benz Cars. In 2015, Tuscaloosa built more than 303,000 vehicles – an all-time record for the plant, which celebrates 20 years of production in early 2016.

In 2015, Mercedes-Benz renewed almost its entire range of SUVs. The new models have had an excellent reception from the customers: Sales of the GLC, the updated GLE and the new addition to the SUV portfolio, the GLE Coupé, were at record levels.

Whether put to everyday use or venturing off the beaten track – the GLS meets all requirements effortlessly and comfortably.
