A Maybach SUV On The Horizon?

Does a request by Daimler to the United States Patent and Trademark Office for “GLS 600” and “GLS 680” indicate the arrival of a Maybach SUV?

The arrival of an SUV at Mercedes’ ultra-luxurious brand is not that hard to believe. Just last April, Mercedes-Maybach unveiled the Vision Ultimate Luxury at the Beijing Auto Show.

Halfway between an SUV and a big sedan, this concept is remarkable for its unusual design. According to Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer at Daimler AG: “The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is a totally new archetype of a kind never seen before. Our concept combines the DNA of an SUV with that of a saloon to produce an ultra-modern SUV of three-box design. With sensuality and pure sophistication, we have created a timeless vehicle that underscores the position of Mercedes-Maybach as the ultimate luxury brand.”

That being said, with the current nomenclatures we know that “600” is reserved for Mercedes-Maybach. Would this really be the arrival of a Maybach SUV on the market?

Is the German manufacturer preparing a response to the Bentley Bentayga and Rolls-Royce Cullinan? According to rumours and a report by Autocar, spy shots included, this high-end SUV is real, at least in test mule form.
