TCC’s Bottom Line
Few vehicles can equal the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover's levels of performance and luxury on pavement; even fewer can keep up with it off-road. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is an ancient off-roader with modern mechanicals, a luxurious interior, and astronomical pricing. It makes almost no sense, which is why people seem to gravitate toward it. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class wraps up to seven people in luxury, and offers a pleasant ride with either diesel fuel economy or willing gasoline power.
