2007 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL450 4dr SUV AWD (4.7L 8cyl 7A)


Review

I had an '02 ML500 and currently have an '06 Range Rover. This GL450 is as comfortable as the Range Rover, roomier than both, and the best ergonomics. The transmission is excellent and I like the upshift/downshift buttons on the backside of the steering wheel. Easy to use Navigation and excellent placement of the CD changer in the glove compartment. Rear view camera is clearer than the Rover also. The Rover wins off road but the Benz wins on the highway.


Worst Features

Move the DVD player into the center console from underneath the rear passenger seat.

2007 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL450 4dr SUV AWD (4.7L 8cyl 7A)


Review

My wife and I test drove 5 other luxury SUV's and this outperformed the competition by a wide margin. The quality of this MB SUV is outstanding and you get what you pay for. The acceleration beats the competition and the ride is similar to the S-class sedan. Overall, it seems like something out of their AMG class. The GL takes the corners well and the interior is very quiet even on dirt roads. The upgraded sound system plus navigation is a must have! Plenty of room for the two kids and lots of storage room. With the third row seat up there is limited room but the competition had even less. We look forward to numerous road trips in the future!


Best Features

Acceleration. Quiet. Navigation. Third row leg room. Safety front & rear parking sensors. IPOD jack. Power tailgate. Harman Kardon sound system. Power third row seat


Worst Features

Premium package should be considered standard equipment

2007 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL320 CDI 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


Review

Surprised at the fit and finish of an American assembled MB. Quite a departure from my '98 ML320 that my mechanic often cursed 'this is not a Mercedes!' Why choose the GL450/550 when 1) gas version comes at a $2500 premium over the diesel (not the case usually with diesel vehicles) 2) gas version requires premium unleaded fuel (premium still costs more than diesel) 3) the diesel gets 18/24 gas gets 13/18 ( GL550 will fare worse); average economy for both cars at 12k miles/year and factoring price differences for premium vs. diesel you'd save ~$600/yr in fuel savings on top of the $2500; Not noisy, not slow, no smoke or smell; 0-60 who cares?? it's an SUV


Best Features

400lb-ft torque! rear 3/4 windows open, 7 speed auto surprisingly doesn't hunt, leather stitching & leather covered dash; solidity and drive smoothness give impression of an S-class not an SUV, backup camera, 3rd row seats, hitch, zero wait time to start, push button close rear door


Worst Features

A la carte options on $50k+ vehicles like leather, sunroof, Xenon lamps, heated seats should be standard. Nav complicated by very stiff joystick instead of a touch screen. By comparison, my son's Honda Odyssey is instantly understandable without the manual so why not copy it!

Review

Traded in a Land Rover Lr3 for the Gl450. Wow what a difference! Better and smoother ride, more power, more luxurious, more amenities. The car is a real head turner. We are very happy so far.


Best Features

The IPOD integration kit is a must. Sunroof package is super. Very comfortable. Great acceleration with smooth ride


Worst Features

None for now

Review

I love this car and it's really a dream to own and drive. I had a problem with the power tailgate not working. The NAV system is a bit primitive and prone to error. This is still the best car that I have had the privilege to own and I highly recommend it.


Best Features

The transmission is very underrated and the ergonomics are excellent. My kids love the COMAND sysstem.


Worst Features

The NAV user interface could be easier to use and less prone to error. The DVD system should have larger screens and wireless headphones.
