TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Land Rover Range Rover swaps steel for aluminum, and delivers better performance and luxury in every dimension. It has more power and more luxury features than ever, but the G Class' boxy charm and its hardcore off-road talent remain intact. 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.
