Default 200? Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class

2008 Mercedes GLK-Class...

http://www.egmcartech.com/2006...class/

Did a search on old posts. Didn't find anything about a GLK. Unless this is the MLK rumor of last year. Can't find any other info on it.

Theres an article about this in the November wheels magazine... and they have an illustration (by Autobild Huckfeldt) of what it could look like...

Would this mean that the MLK name isnt going to be used or is this another model.... with the MLK looking like a baby ML and the GLK lookin like a baby GL?

In the article is mentions that .... its not meant to "be capable of any serious off-roading - this is a four-wheel-drive on-roader. Also says"itll also be offered in rear-wheel-drive which will "cut-weight, cost and consumption, in an attempt to achieve maximum sales volumes"

Its dimension will be "within 50mm of BMW's X3 in every key measurement" so itll be similar to the next X3 and that "weight will also be almost identical, within 30kg"

"The GLK will be powered by a wide variety of petrol and turbo-diesel engines, starting off with a 152Kw 3.0-litre V6 for rear-drive models, and an uprated turbo-diesel range, including a 187kw 3.2-litre V6. The ubiquitous petrol V8 version will appear, and AMG will provide a 360kw GLK 63"

SO does that mean the MLK name (or model) aint happening?.... and y does MB have to stick a V8 and AMG V8 in every car they make... its ridiculous

MLK was just an internet rumor. As was X class. Both of those were referring to this vehicle.

o right.... never heard about the X-class though.

GLK sounds better but they could have created a new name when a different first letter (instead G or M)

well obviously the chops are wrong as the spy pics show more of a gl shape than ml.

That chop shows the rumoured MLK, not the GLK.

X-class, MLK, GLM, what's the difference. It think it's all the same truck at the end. There's no way MB is coming out with two trucks of the same size with differnt names.

X-Class = MLK = GLK

Bravo! Benz sentences the X3 a death penalty. But I think MLK should be more fit for being the rival of X3.
