Mercedes Alabama plant launches production of ultra-luxury Maybach

VANCE, Alabama – Workers at Alabama’s Mercedes-Benz plant have produced an all-new model that the company calls the peak of SUV luxury.

The first customer-ready Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 built in Alabama rolled off the assembly line at the Mercedes-Benz U.S. International facility in Tuscaloosa County in September.

Mercedes unveiled the vehicle late last year, saying that it represents a new form of luxury in the SUV segment, as the Maybach badge is reserved for the highest-quality equipment and appointments.

Features include a powerful yet discreet V8 engine, advanced suspension systems for a smooth and comfortable ride; automatic and illuminated running boards, and electrically operated roller sun blinds on the rear side windows.
