Grey Ghost aka GL450
By terp97 on


2011 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL450 4MATIC 4dr SUV AWD (4.7L 8cyl 7A)


Turned in 08 for a new 11 and once again very happy.
Navigation is improved but still short of Acura/Lexus.
Rear Entertainment screens are nicer but placement is horrible.
They should have stayin the headrest.
DVD in the center counsel is great location and it would be nice to control the DVD playback from the command not just from one of two remotes.
It would be nice if the 550 grill and fender flares could be had as in option.
The grill is massive and really sets the GL off with out sucking up all that gas like the 550 not that the 450 is any better.

Best Features

Not sure if any one feature is my favorite but the GL has everything to offer in the right size and package. American SUVs are too big and unreliable and not a whole lot cheaper than the GL.

Worst Features

Navigation, Rear Entertainment controls and screen location.
