Mercedes-Benz has released pricing information for the new second-generation GLC. Unveiled in June 2022, the German company’s flagship model stands out from its predecessor with a sleeker exterior design, larger dimensions and a higher base price.

At launch, the range will include a single model called the GLC 300. Buyers will have three trim levels to choose from: a base model, a mid-range model called Exclusive, and a top-of-the-line model called Pinnacle. Pricing for the full range is as follows:

  • GLC 300 RWD: $48,250
  • GLC 300 AWD: $50,250
  • GLC 300 Exclusive RWD: $50,500
  • GLC 300 Exclusive AWD: $52,500
  • GLC 300 Pinnacle RWD: $52,600
  • GLC 300 Pinnacle AWD: $54,600

Note that all of the above figures include the mandatory (and very reasonable) $1,150 destination fee. By comparison, the outgoing 2022 GLC 300 has a base price of $44,900, including a $1,050 destination charge when equipped with rear-wheel drive.

For the money, Mercedes-Benz includes a relatively long list of features such as LED headlights, MB-Tex upholstery, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, heated and power-adjustable front seats for the MBUX infotainment system 11.9-inch touchscreen, plus wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Stepping up to the Exclusive trim brings a Burmester surround sound system, navigation system, surround-view cameras, and illuminated door sills. Finally, the Pinnacle model builds on the mid-range model with enhanced video capabilities for the navigation system, a head-up display, the company’s digital light technology, and heat and sound insulating glass.

Regardless of trim level, power for the 2023 GLC comes from a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a 48-volt mild-hybrid system that produces 258 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. It’s bolted to a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Mercedes-Benz dealers across the country will begin taking delivery of the 2023 GLC in the spring. While there’s nothing official yet, it’s reasonable to assume that other variants – including an AMG-developed high-horsepower model – will gradually be added to the range.
