TCC’s Bottom Line
If a need still exists for full-size luxury SUVs, it'll be fulfilled by civilized utes like the Infiniti QX56. The 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL Class is a pricey way to go, but it's a luxury family wagon with great fuel economy and road manners, and some thoughtful new safety and luxury features to boot.
