The GL-Class is an all-new larger luxury SUV from Mercedes-Benz. Three rows of seating and larger dimensions place it above the M-Class in the burgeoning Mercedes lineup. The powertrain features a 4.6L V8, 7-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. On the inside, there are three rows of seating for up to 7. Despite the luxury oriented interior, a number of off-road performance items suggest that the GL-Class could be used for more than suburban cruising.

What Changed:

A new range topping GL550 model joins the lineup. The GL550 wears a distinct grill, fender flares. The GL550 is equipped with 21 inch wheels.
