The Mercedes-Benz R-Class is a large MPV introduced by Mercedes-Benz in 2005 for the 2006 model year. Following the success of the smaller A- and B-Class MPVs, Mercedes presented a concept vehicle, Vision GST (Grand Sports Tourer), at the 2002 Detroit Auto Show, subsequently introducing the production version at 2005 New York International Auto Show. The R-Class was manufactured in Vance, Alabama until 2015 when its production was shifted to Mishawaka, Indiana for a smaller volume production until 2017. The R-Class shared its platform with the M-Class (W164) and GL-Class (X164) and was available in two wheelbase lengths. The R-Class received a major update with facelift to the front and rear fascias, grille, side mirrors, and taillights for the model year 2011.
