All 2008 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class utes are outfitted with a lengthy list of standard features and options that can push the SUV’s price well beyond $80,000.
Edmunds.com notes standard features are comprehensive on this Mercedes-Benz; 2008 GL320 and GL450 utes include real wood trim, a 7,500-pound towing capacity, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated power front seats, the COMAND electronics interface, a power-folding third row, and an eight-speaker audio system with glove-box-mounted six-CD changer with auxiliary audio input.
