Can the 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLB Tow?

May 13th, 2022 by

2022 Mercedes-Benz GLB

The 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLB does not have a towing capacity, since it has not been designed for use in these applications. However, there are plenty of other Mercedes-Benz SUVs that can tow heavy cargo—including the GLC, which can tow up to 3,500 pounds.

Although the Mercedes-Benz GLB towing capacity is nonexistent, this luxurious two or three-row SUV is more than capable of accommodating lots of cargo. Find out what you can do with its cargo space and learn more about the GLB SUV’s engine specs with our team!



2022 Mercedes-Benz GLB Performance 

The 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLB is available with two engines. The first—a 2.0L Inline-4 twin-scroll turbo engine—comes standard with the GLB 250 and the GLB 250 4MATIC®®. 

  • 221 hp
  • 258 lb-ft of torque
  • 0–60 MPH in 6.9 seconds

If you’d like a little more energy for your Stamford and New Canaan drives, upgrade to the AMG® GLB 35 SUV for an AMG®-enhanced 2.0L inline-4 turbo. It offers 302 hp, 295 lb-ft of torque, and a 0–60 time of just 5.1 seconds.

Neither of these engines is capable of towing, but opting for the 4MATIC®® model or choosing the AMG® configuration could still be smart choices for the driver who values power or controlled handling.

2022 Mercedes-Benz GLB Cargo Space

Although you won’t be able to hook up a trailer, there’s quite a lot that you can do with the GLB SUV’s spacious cargo area. This model offers 22 cubic feet with the rear seats upright, or up to 62 cubic feet with the rear seats flat. 40/20/40-split second-row seats are standard, and you can get even more use out of your cabin when you equip optional upgrades like EASY ENTRY®.
