Spy shots of the upcoming 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLC are finally available as this SUV gets better every year. If you’re not familiar, the Mercedes-Benz GLC started production six years ago and has since undergone a slight facelift. Whatever the case, the new model is spotted for testing, albeit with heavy camouflage. Despite this, we have seen several changes, including redesigned headlights and taillights.
The Mercedes-Benz GLC will also feature a new version of the platform designed to support plug-in and hybrid systems. In addition, new four- and six-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines are offered. According to the most reliable sources, the latest version will appear in 2022 as the 2023 model.

2023 Mercedes-Benz GLC Brand new engine setup
As for powertrain options, the upcoming 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLC will have all-new units. The base model should be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces significantly more power than the previous generation. As mentioned earlier, the company will use a 2.0-liter engine in some sort of hybrid configuration.
In addition, Mercedes recently indicated that all versions of the GLC, including the Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC63, will include some form of electrification. PHEV variants could include a larger battery capacity – from 8.7 to 13.5 kWh – and a new 7.5 kWh compact charger. This equates to doubling the electric range to about 30 miles. The current GLC PHEV model produces a combined 315 horsepower and 515 pound-feet of torque.
