The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is one of our favorite full-size SUVs, but many alternatives still exist, even after the great bubble has burst.
The Cadillac Escalade offers three rows of seats and a trio of body styles to go with its ornate Detroit style;a hybrid powertrain also is available.
Lexus' LX 570 is huge, and off-road-friendly, but it's a hefty piece with punishing weight and low fuel economy, not to mention small third-row seats.
The Land Rover Range Rover drips with prestige and still maintains its reputation for exceptional off-road prowess, but only offers two rows of seats.
