Mercedes-Benz sells more GLC SUVs than any other vehicle. While you may think that the popular small, competitive, luxurious GLC may be the most important SUV for the brand, we’re here to make the case that it’s not. The EQS is. The EQS SUV is Mercedes’ flagship all-electric SUV which comes with every bell and whistle the company can dream up, and that means that the most successful options will find their way into the GLC we can all buy in a few years.

The 2023 Mercedes EQS is the ultimate Benz SUV

The EQS represents the pinnacle of Mercedes’s SUV line, and its new EQ line of electric vehicles. Mercedes is asking far north of $105,000 for most versions of this seven-passenger SUV for good reason. For example, it doesn’t just have a simple center screen, ohh no, instead it offer the MBUX Hyperscreeen, which is three displays merged into one gigantic 56-inch curved glass surface on the EQS 580 4MATIC. On those screens, it can show everything the SUV is doing, from steering angle and suspension height to your geo coordinates.

Of course you don’t pay that kind of money and not get leather heated seats, a power-sliding second row, and acres of soft-touch materials throughout. You also can get the latest version of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience, or MBUX, that is voice controlled and helps you remember business contacts, birthdays, and whether you like the heated steering wheel (or hot-stone massaging seats) on when temperatures dip below a certain temperature. Maybe our plebian GLC SUV will get a hot stone massaging seat when it’s updated.

The EQS is electric and expects to set a standard

The EQS comes as a 355-horsepower version called the EQS 450+ or the EQS 580 4MATIC, which has 536 horsepower. The 450+ is rear-wheel drive, with the $MATIC badging means that the 580 is all-wheel drive. Depending on which version you pick, it can go 373 miles on a full charge. Mercedes added four-wheel steering, with the rear axle able to turn up to 10 degrees.

What trim levels are available on the Mercedes-Benz EQS?

The Mercedes-Benz EQS has a starting point just north of $105,000, but promises “space, comfort, and connectivity” for up to seven passengers in three trims. https://t.co/E8XVDiMAKG

The EQS comes in three flavors, Premium, Exclusive, and Pinnacle. The Premium has more luxury and features than most of us would know what to do with, including 10-degree rear-axle steering and a surround-view camera. Upgrade to the Exclusive and you get rapid heating front seats, the MBUX Interior Assistant, a four-zone climate control system, and a heads-up display.

The Pinnacle adds all of the features of the lower tiers. But, you also get and an MBUX rear tablet, wireless charging in the rear, and the Executive Second-Row Seat Package, which includes neck and shoulder heating in the rear, as well as power-adjustable seats.

What should expect to pay for a new EQS SUV?

Mercedes teased us with pictures, specs, and more but finally we have the pricing. Brace yourself, the EQS comes with a steep price tag. The EQS 450+ Premium, the base model, starts at $104,400. If you upgrade to all-wheel drive, expect to pay $3,000 more. If you move to the EQS 580 4 MATIC, it starts at $125,950. The Exclusive trim is about $5,000 more, while the Pinnacle trim is about $6,000 more. The Premium tops out at more than $132,000.
