Benefits of Driving a 2012 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Sport Utility

The GL-Class comes in three trim levels: the GL350 with the BlueTEC V6 diesel engine which gives it extraordinary fuel-efficiency for an SUV this size. The GL450 comes with a 4.6L V8, and the GL550 with a 5.5L V8, giving it extraordinary pulling capability as well as 21-inch AMG alloy wheels and a huge Mercedes-Benz medallion on the grille. Each model has 4-wheel drive, a 7,500-lb towing capacity, a 7-speed transmission and the PRE-SAFE system.

What's new for 2012?

There are no significant changes to the GL-Class for 2012. LED daytime running lights are now standard and several minor interior changes have been made.

Model Strengths

  • Full-size, 7-passenger luxury SUV
  • efficient diesel engine available
  • luxurious, expansive interior

Model Review

The GL-Class came to be in 2007 in the form of the GL450, and was based on the decades-old squared-off G-Class SUV. The GL retains much of the off-road capabilities of the military-style G-wagon, but adds third-row seating, more creature comforts and 500 more pounds of towing capability. The GL-Class has grown from one model to three, including an ultra-luxury edition and a low-emissions diesel.
