AutoExpress is saying that the GLC will launch initially with 4 cylinder diesel and petrol only, PHEV next and hints of a GLC 450 AMG Sport sharing a360 bhp TT V6 with the C-class...

For exact engine, trim and pricing details we’ll have to wait a few weeks yet, but our prototype was fitted with a 208bhp 2.0-litre four-cyl turbo petrol engine. It’s expected that only four-cylinder diesel and petrol engines will be offered initially, with a plug-in petrol-electric hybrid to come. Zillmann also hinted that a GLC 450 AMG Sport with the same 362bhp twin-turbo V6 as the C 450 AMG Sport

I like this move, moving the volume model first before getting all the fun models ready for release. At least they have their priorities straight.

its likely to be the 2.0T 4 cylinder for NA. Although by the time it launches in NA the GLC 400 could be ready to go with the 3.0L biturno 6 from the C class...

Nope, MB is going to follow what they did with the C-Class in NA and only offer the base "C300" engine in a vehicle this size. So the base model here will be a GLC300.

In Europe, MB sells a C250, and I wish they would bring it here. I'm fairly certain that MB is going to do the same thing with the GLC class, and restrict us to starting with the GLC300.

MB, bring the GLC250 to the US! I don't need a GLC300!

C Class in NA is offered with the 2.0T in the C300 and the 3.0T V6 in the C400...

which is what I was saying above the 2.0T and the V6 from the C Class...

Here is the official engine lineup at launch in the US:


The U.S. gets the GLC 300 rear-wheel-drive and GLC 300 4MATIC all-wheel-drive models at launch this fall. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine produces 241 hp and 273 pounds-feet of torque mated to the nine-speed G-tronic automatic transmission, according to Mercedes. Additional powertrains will debut in 2016 and 2017.
