The GLK will be getting a rather successful facelift for the 2013 model year, it goes a long way to differentiate what some criticized as it's Honda Pilot-esque guise that may have hampered enthusiasm for the small SUV in the past. With more aggressive headlights matured for the requisite daytime running lights, we are excited to start seeing this baby-G on the roads. It's not just the front end that benefits from the studious eyes of Mercedes-Benz designers, there are actually over 1,000 new parts in the updated model. The coveted diesel BlueTEC option will make it's debut in the model range, appearing in the GLK250 that will appear in dealer showrooms in early 2013, while the standard gasser GLK350 will preempt it by a few months, showing up this summer.
