    Mercedes-Maybach is slated to pulled the cover off a new ultra-luxury SUV concept at the upcoming 2018*Beijing auto show. The brand has offered up our first official look at the upcoming concept with a new Facebook video and interior sketch.*

    Known as the*Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury, it is expected to blend ultra-luxury sedan traits with SUV form. The sketch vindicates the mission with a leather-wrapped interior that blends metal accents and blue ambient lighting. The interior is so fancy, Mercedes says it will launch a matching line of furniture.*

    On the outside, Mercedes says to expect the next iteration of Maybach's design theme. The new theme will further differentiate Maybach variants from the core Mercedes-Benz lineup.**

    The*Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is widely expected to preview Mercedes-Maybach's upcoming take on the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLS. The new GLS is due out next year as a 2020 model and is slated to gain a Maybach variant. A Mercedes-Maybach GLS will go up against the likes of the Bentley Bentayga and serve as Maybach's first SUV variant.*

    While the Vision concept will be revealed in*Beijing on April 25th, the all-new GLS Class is not slated for reveal until late this year, possibly at the Los Angeles Auto Show.*

    It's stunning to me we live in a world where a $180,000 SUV makes a lot of sense.

    it makes No sense for 1-2% of the people to own >98% of the wealth

    It's stunning that we live in a world where a loaded Chevy Tahoe is $75k.
