Today we can show one of the latest and most revealing spy photos of the upcoming 2012 Mercedes GL. For the first time we can see most of the front end with headlights and grille. It seems the GL, a wagon/SUV creation, will get front-end styling attributes from the current E-Class. According to reports, the GL will be built on a stretched version of the next-generation ML platform. It will feature LED daytime running lights on the bumper and the compact light clusters for the rear taillights will likely be part of the next-generation GL's look as well as a friendlier face for the thuggish-looking GL with a wider grill and a more aerodynamic nose. Engines will likely still be shared with the ML model, such as the 3.0L and 4.0L diesels and the 5.5L petrol engine all coupled to the brand's 7G-Tronic transmission.
