2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV Research by Benzel-Busch

It doesn’t just push the envelope in electric, it’s transforming the automotive industry entirely. 

Let’s elevate the meaning of sport utility vehicle. More than a pretty face, SUVs are built to be practical, tough, capable. And now, electric. Enter the 2023 EQS SUV, the first all-electric SUV by Mercedes-EQ. This vehicle reveals mobility through a new lens, reflecting the pioneering spirit of the next generation of driving.

The EQS SUV shares the long wheelbase of its sedan namesake, but is more than 7.8” taller, providing headroom in spades. Roomier still, space at the shoulders and knees signifies first-class travel along with optional third row seating and comfort features for all passengers. DYNAMIC SELECT offers the available OFFROAD mode, an intelligent driving mode that raises this SUV to tackle varied terrain. OFFROAD, paired with the responsive 4MATIC all-wheel drive and the standard rear-axle steering with angles of up to 10°, makes this ride everything to write home about.

Hyper-responsive technology is ever-present with the available Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) Hyperscreen. A master control like no other, this infotainment system spans 56” from door-to-door — seamlessly merging three screens to form a single display. The opportunity to communicate with your vehicle has never felt so tangible thanks to the haptic feedback within the center and passenger displays. When it comes to navigation with Electric Intelligence, the name says it all.

The EQS SUV is essentially a rebodied EQS sedan with an elevated seating position and more interior space, and its electric powertrains are similar, albeit not identical. The EQS450+ features a 335-hp electric motor that powers the rear wheels. The EQS580 produces 536 horsepower and 633 pound-feet of torque between its front- and rear-mounted electric motors, which provide all-wheel drive.
Car and Driver
Again, the EQS SUV is an electric luxury SUV first, but when the new model's off-road chops manifested themselves, the engineers bought in. They raised the EQS's ground clearance, added an inclinometer to measure elevation and slope angles, and added more information an off-road geek would appreciate such as suspension status.
