2007 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL450 4dr SUV AWD (4.7L 8cyl 7A)
I have to say Mercedes Benz has done a great job with this vehicle. I had my doubts at first but after driving it for a week now I've really gotten into this thing. Its comfortable, smooth, and can handle alot of cargo if the time comes. 7-speed auto gives the engine maximum flexibility, but it still drinks gas like any full size.
Smooth, quiet ride. I went and put the 22-inch brabus wheels on it and its still whisper quiet and handles better now. Power folding third row is slick, along with air-suspension.
$55k starting price and you have to pay $1500 bucks for leather? Not to mention alot of options should come standard i.e. xenons, moonroof, and memory seats. Maybe a little more juice under the hood but the 4.7 still gets the job done, maybe a 63 amg? Well have to see
