Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Overview

The seven-passenger GL is the most comfortable-riding SUV 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, 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. Features include a self-parking system and a 360-degree camera view. Reliability has been well below average, and the poor emergency handling behavior has also prevented us from recommending it.
