Overall:

I like my new-2-me Mercedes GL. I test-drove Suburban, Tahoe, Mercedes GLE , Tundra, Sequioa, Sierra and Lariat. I needed something to tow my new RV and to road trip with my family of 4 (2 teen girls with lots of luggage). When I test drove, my girls evaluated back seating. I wont go into every evaluation, but we were looking for a comfortable, roomy ride for all passengers on cross-country trips. I love driving and wanted a vehicle that wouldnt choke when towing RV, but would be responsive in day-to-day driving. It had to be roomy and have great audio capabilities with Bluetooth features. This GL has all that and more. I know it will cost more in maintenance, but what Im not paying in car payments I will pay at the mechanic to pre-empt any problems. It it a great vehicle, comfortable, powerful and roomy--great quality without the higher up-front price-tag of some of the other vehicles I drove.

Great ride and driver friendly controls. Navigation is cumbersome, but it is a 2013. V8 engine has no issues with climbing hills or killing the jet ski.

Sports Car / Suv Hybrid — This SUV is extremely fast for what it is (7 passenger, 3 row seating). It rolls zero to 60 in 5.1 seconds. It is also state of the art when it comes to technology (Brake Assist, Lane tracking, Blind Spot Assist, etc.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast, luxurious and handles like a dream.  Not to mention safe.

Cons: Gas mileage and price.

The New Benz Large Suv... The X166 Gl450 —

Mercedes Benz revamped it's larges SUV (barring the G-Class) , the GL-Class in 2013, and I must say that they have done a fabulous job at it. Indeed, the exterior styling is subject to individual taste, but never a great fan to MBZ (Mercedes Benz) SUV designs, this new GL design has caught my heart. Not only is it very handsome, it is large, seats 7 passengers (excellent if you have a big family or extended family), rides comfortably, and even goes off-road with adjustable air suspension. It features a 4.7 Liter TwinTurbo V8 that produces 362/5000 HP and 406/1000 TQ, which isn't the most powerful for a heavy SUV but plenty enough for everyday driving and hauling the family. You can indeed feel the 5401-lb (2450 kg) curb weight when driving it, meaning that it does really handle like an SUV. I wasn't expecting this car to handle like a sports car; however, the BMW X5 definitely handles a lot better and is more fun to drive. The car we have has an optional video entertainment system with two video screens in behind the headrests of the driver and front passenger's seat, enabling the rear passengers to watch DVDs and listen to music, which is great if you have people in the backseat who gets bored on long-trips easily. One thing I really like about this car is that it has an automatic folding 3rd row seats; at the press or pull of a button, the two 3rd row seats folds down or raises themselves automatically, saving us from the trouble of climbing over the car and pulling the levers. Overall, this is a great looking car with great functionality, and if you're in the market for a luxury SUV that hauls 7 passengers comfortably, definitely do consider this MBZ GL-Class!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Interior space, visibility, ride comfort, long trips, great new looks and style, 7-passenger seating capacity w large trunk space and auto folding rear seats

Cons: V8 fuel economy, you can feel the weigh when driving it, handles like an SUV
