Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Overview
The seven-passenger GL is among the most comfortable-riding SUVs we've tested. Available engines include a 240-hp turbodiesel V6 and a 4.6-liter turbo V8, all driving through a seven-speed automatic and with standard all-wheel drive. New for 2015 is a twin-turbo, 362-hp V6. The interior is luxurious and full of thoughtful details, the seats are excellent, and even the third row is comfortable. Handling is responsive, but it's very clumsy and reluctant at its limits. We got 20-mpg overall with the refined diesel. A self-parking system and a 360-degree-view camera are optional. But well-below-average reliability and its poor emergency-handling behavior prevent us from recommending it.
