2011 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class

2011 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Review

(4 Stars)  Good compromise between track and trail

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Originally destined to replace the G series, the GL is too civilized to replace the aging G series when it comes to off road prowess. The GL joins the ranks of Mercedes produces that are built in the USA. Specifically, the Alabama plant that also produces the M and R classes. The mass produced, unibody for the GL is shared with those other two models, though on the road, the vehicles have a distinctively different feel which keeps the models separate at least for the person behind the wheel.

The engine choices for the GL are a 4.7 liter V-8 for the GL 450. A 3.0 liter turbo diesel powers the GL 350 Blue TEC. The top of the line GL 550 gets its motivation from. A 5.5 liter 382 HP V-8. All engines send their power through a seven speed automatic transmission. All models come with adjustable air bag suspension and all-wheel drive, regardless of the engine that is chosen.

While a fairly pricey entry into this segment, the GL accommodates with its luxury appointments, spacious cabin, and more carlike ride than some of the competitor's.
