Rallye Motors honored to feature 2013 Motor Trend ‘SUV of the Year’

Recently named the 2013 Motor Trend SUV of the Year, the all-new 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is a welcomed site on the lot for local Mercedes-Benz dealership Rallye Motors in Long Island.

“The 2013 GL is one of the best vehicles in the world, and being named the 2013 Motor Trend SUV of the Year speaks for itself,” said Ty Klipstein, general manager at Rallye Motors. “When you get opportunity to see this great vehicle up close and take it for a test drive, it’s easy to see why it’s received the great honor.”

The 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is a 7-passenger full-size luxury SUV, which Motor Trend also called “the most American Mercedes-Benz ever.” Built in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, the GL-Class model lineup for 2013 includes the GL350 BlueTEC turbodiesel, the popular GL450 and the high-performance GL550 and GL63 AMG.

In addition to its all-new exterior and interior redesign, the new GL-Class also features a significant new safety system, which includes Collision Prevention Assist, Attention Assist, Adaptive Brake technology, mbrace2 Telematics and Crosswind Stabilization.

Trimmed in a freshened selection of upholstery colors and combinations, the 2013 GL-Class offers amenities such as front seats with massage, multicolor ambient lighting, seamlessly integrated technology, power liftgate, 115-volt outlet under the second-row seats and up to 94 cubic feet of cargo space.

Rallye Motors also recently provided its clients with an exclusive preview of the 2013 GL-Class.  Those in attendance were treated to special gifts from Godiva and a raffle for a free excursion donated by Hopscotch Air. Guests were also treated to delicious hors d’oeuvres and fine wine provided by Carlyle Off The Green, while they enjoyed live ambient music and an art showcase courtesy of Galleria Fine Arts, the largest fine arts gallery on Long Island.
