The 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLC will be Unveiled on June 1

Mercedes will unveil the next generation of the GLC in a livestream on June 1.

  • The new GLC will be powered exclusively with hybrid powertrains

  • A plug-in version could have up to 100 kilometers of electric range

  • The new GLC will likely be larger than the current one

Mercedes-Benz announced today that the 2023 GLC will be unveiled in a livestreamed event on June 1.

This new generation of the brand’s most popular model will feature a digital cockpit, the latest version of the MBUX infotainment system and a completely electrified powertrain portfolio.

Indeed, the compact SUV will be powered exclusively by hybrid powertrains, bot of the mild and the plug-in types.

The standard engine will likely be a turbocharged four-cylinder that will be paired with a small electric motor that will bring the total output to around 278 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque.

The GLC 43 AMG version is likely to use a more powerful version of the same powertrain and the GLC 63 AMG will be a plug-in hybrid.

This will be the first time that the AMG versions will be powered by a four-cylinder engine, but the assistance of the electric motor will provide the expected power level.

According to the automaker, this plug-in powertrain could provide up to 100 kilometers of electric range on a full charge, but this number is likely to have been determined using the WLTP standard, meaning that real world range could be considerably lower.

The next generation of the GLC will still be built on the MHA platform, meaning that it will share its underpinnings with the current model.

In order to reduce weight and thus improve efficiency and performances, the new GLC will make use of more aluminium than previously.

Prototypes that have been spotted on the road appear to show a larger vehicle than the current GLC, which makes sense considering the GLB is currently very close to the GLC in terms of size.

Inside, few details have been revealed except that the GLC will feature the latest version of the automaker’s MBUX infotainment system, which will be contained into a digital cockpit made from two side by side screens for the instrument panel and the infotainment, as is currently seen in other Mercedes-Benz models.
