2016 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Buyer's Guide

In the pantheon of full-size SUVs, only a few can truly be considered world class. That the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class SUV is one of them was specifically by design. While most people think of Mercedes-Benz as a builder of luxury models, the fact is cars and trucks with the three-pointed star do duty as service vehicles all over the world, including in some amazingly harsh environments where paved roads are the exception rather than a norm. When the contemporary version of the seven-passenger Mercedes-Benz SUV debuted back in 2013, it was immediately obvious the vehicle was capable of handling unpaved trails just as easily as it carted little Hunter to soccer practice. Further, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is capable of towing loads up to 7,500 pounds.
