A perilous Mercedes-Benz GLB has just been featured in a Facebook video. The video features a Jurassic Park themed background showcasing the tough and a wagon-like look of the Baby Mercedes.

The Facebook video although runs short was so enough to say so much about the highly anticipated Mercedes-Benz GLB. The forest like setting paved the way for the grumbling sound of bravery from the G Wagon.

The five-second creepy video from what seemed like a Jurassic Park location comes to no surprise as Mercedes has been known to be a vehicle supplier for the Jurassic World movies. Mercedes M-Class specifically starred in 1997 for the movie "The Lost World: Jurassic Park."

Mercedes lovers will have their chance to set their eyes on the concept GLB Wagon next week. The 2019 Shanghai Auto Show will showcase the Baby Mercedes along with other launches from top car manufacturers.

The teaser showed the GLB featuring the two LED running lamps in L- formation as well as the headlamp noticeably squared-off. The video is the second leak released about the Mercedes-Benz GLB. Last week, a teaser surfaced giving confirmations on how the Baby Mercedes would look like.

The previous glimpse of the Mercedes-Benz GLB revealed that the Baby Mercedes would adopt most of its physical features from the original G-Wagen. From the boxy body to the spacious cabin, there is indeed so much resemblance between the two when it comes to the outside built as well as the G-class interior.

The Mercedes-Benz GLB stands between its two siblings when it comes to external structures and somewhat performance. It has more luggage space and larger cabins compared to its smaller sibling the Mercedes-Benz GLA as well as tougher look which bring it to the off-roader category. However, GLB only comes next to its bigger sibling, the GLC.

The aggressive sound created by the Mercedes-Benz GLB could signal an impressive feature when it comes to performance. It could indeed be true as the Baby Mercedes will have seven-speed dual clutch transmission distributing power to all four wheels.

GLB will be powered by the turbocharged four-cylinder petrol rated at 188 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque belonging to the A-Class family. Expect also a 301 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque as the more powerful AMG GLB 35 comes out.

Mercedes-Benz also has a treat for electric vehicle lovers. Under the "EQ" banner, the Mercedes-Benz GLB will be made available in a pure electric version and a plug-in hybrid.
