The GL-Class is currently the largest model in the Mercedes-Benz crossover/SUV lineup which, remember, also includes the not exactly petite G-Wagen.
Built in the Mercedes' Tuscaloosa plant, in Alabama, the GL is based on a stretched M-Class platform to accommodate its standard 7 passenger seats.

Speaking of standard, the big SUV has a number of features included in the base price, whether we're talking about the smallest engine or the GL 63 AMG flagship model.

In Britain there are only two engines available: the immensely powerful GL 63 AMG and the reasonably torquey GL 350 BlueTec, who is also the fuel economy champion of the two. Auto Express decided to have a spin in the diesel model, most likely because it is also the best seller of the range.

While not wanting to give any spoiler about their review, we should probably remind you that the biggest competitor of the Mercedes-Benz GL in Great Britain is the Indian-owned but still British-buolt Range Rover, while Auto Express is a British magazine. We'll stop here with any insinuations, but you can have a look at their GL 350 BlueTec review here.
