2009 Mercedes-Benz GL Class vs. Its Competition

2009 Mercedes-Benz GL Class 5.5L

Cadillac's Escalade comes with three rows of seats and a ornate style, and a hybrid powertrain is available.

The Lexus LX 570 is a huge off-road-friendly hauler with punishing weight and fuel economy, but small third-row seats.

The Land Rover Range Rover has prestige at its back and exceptional off-road prowess, but only two rows of seats.
