Update: Official GLK concepts here and here.

These are the latest renderings of Mercedes’ upcoming midsized SUV, which is scheduled to enter production in the second half of next year. This rendering, compiled with information sourced from insiders close to the project, show that the new GLK picks up the same angular design theme and ruggedness seen in the rest of the Mercedes SUV range. The only major difference from previous impressions is the new tear-drop headlights and shortened taillights.

The GLK will initially be offered with a four-cylinder Kompressor motor and a 3.5L V6. These will be followed by Mercedes' new four-cylinder Bluetec diesel displacing 2.2L and producing up to 204hp.
