There's been some turnover in the full-size, luxury-SUV category since the Infiniti QX56 was new in the 2011 model year.
The Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator are nearing the end of their life cycles; both are the kings of bling, and tip their hats to huge towing capacity, with the Escalade getting the nod for its plethora of body styles and available Hybrid model.
The Benz GL is brand-new this year, improved in almost every way, from infotainment features to its new power-folding second-row seat; its diesel edition is our favorite among the full-size luxo-utes.
Finally, the Range Rover is heading toward retirement: a brand-new vehicle, spun from the Jaguar XJ architecture, is due for a world debut in the fall of 2012, with a curb weight up to 500 pounds less than today's vehicle.
