What make and model is this SUV test vehicle?

I saw this SUV in camouflage while out driving today. I often see camouflaged cars driving around here. Most of the time they look like Mercedes, but this one has me stumped.

The grille has a Volvo look to it but also the way headlights are pushed in reminded me of Chevy as well.

Lincoln also has a similar grille, but I have no idea. Could be almost anything.

The grill is fake, the headlights are non-production test mule lights. But judging by windshield dual camera setup it is a Mercedes. But I'm not sure why the gas cup is on the wrong side, typically germans have gas cups on the passenger side for safety.

Wheels look like Merc to me. Bit they could be mule bits too.

TBH most SUVs look the same to me.

Where did you take this? Looks like a Mercedes to me.

Edit: it's definitely a Mercedes. The two cameras on the windshield are definitely a Mercedes design (location, spacing, shape).

I'm thinking merc too.. Explains the camo in the middle of the grille to cover the logo. Nice looking hearse though.

Sure looks like a 2020 GLS.

Edit, actually suppose it's probably the Maybach version since they've already revealed the regular GLS.

And this is a top result from googling Maybach GLS. Has the same porthole on the rear side window.
