2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL550 4MATIC 4dr SUV AWD (4.7L 8cyl Turbo 7A)


Rock solid SUV! It's the first vehicle my wife may admit is better than her audi Q7 tdi. The designo interior is amazing. I thought the radar guided cruise would be a joke, but I love it. With direct fuel injection and two turbos, my diesel days may well be over. 510pound-feet of torque wait at LOW rpm to effortlessly pull any load.

Best Features

Pulls a 20' boat like a freight train, accelerates like our audi S4.

Worst Features

The DVD player is horrible. It is so grainy and fuzzy I can't bear to watch it. The 3rd row access a bit tricky for my 8/9 year olds....I was under the impression the 550 was power access?
