After a string of concept versions and the first reveal of its new GLK in full production trim at this year's Beijing Motor Show, Mercedes Benz has finally revealed pricing and released dates for the new compact SUV in the United States. The GLK will go on sale in January next year, with pricing for the base 2WD model starting at $33,900. Upgrading to the AWD version will set you back $35,900. Both prices exclude a $850 destination charge that applies on both models. Designed to go up against the BMW X3 and upcoming Audi Q5, the new GLK shows a dramatic improvement in quality over Mercedes' previous SUV models despite being an entry-level offroader.
