Under the hood of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK Class
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK250 BlueTEC® and GLK350 offer rather significantly different driving experiences. The GLK250 BlueTEC® is the more efficient of the two, as it sports a 2.1-liter turbocharged diesel engine that makes 200 horsepower and an incredible 369 pound-feet of torque. Those ratings offer a more-than-satisfying experience behind the wheel, but the 33 highway mpg rating from the EPA makes daily commutes much for affordable.
At the heart of the more powerful 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 is a 3.5-liter V-6 that yields 302 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Start-stop technology, which is found in most new Mercedes-Benz models, helps boost fuel economy to its EPA estimates of 19 mpg city and 25 mpg highway in rear-wheel drive models. 4MATIC® AWD GLK350s offer similar efficiency, however ratings drop a single mpg in the city.
