BlueEFFICIENCY from Mercedes-Benz stands for pioneering efficiency technologies as well as innovative packages of measures for the optimisation of fuel consumption and emission levels.
The BlueEFFICIENCY models of the GL
The GL 350 CDI 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY and GL 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC models are available, featuring environmentally friendly technologies and extensive special measures.
Efficiency technologies in the GL
BlueTEC catalytic conversion technology uses the reactant AdBlue® to purify exhaust gases. This makes it possible to reduce nitrogen oxides by up to 80%. The exceptionally clean diesel technology is implemented in the GL 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC. It already complies with the future EU 6 exhaust emissions standard.
The latest-generation CDI diesel engines display compelling performance characteristics coupled with low consumption levels. Injection pressure has been increased, smoothness of operation enhanced and noise levels optimised, while reduced compression makes for lower emission levels.
Packages of measures in the GL
Depending on the engine installed, the BlueEFFICIENCY models of the GL are equipped with a series of different measures. These are for instance:
intelligent energy management, e.g. electrohydraulic power steering
