2022 Mercedes-Benz GLS Class vs. Its Competition

2022 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class (GLS450)
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

BMW’s X7 provides the clearest rival to the GLS-Class, though its looks won’t be for everyone (for anyone?).

The Audi Q7 is a bit trimmer inside, but it’s priced right and is full of high-tech touches.

A new Range Rover is here, and while you’ll pay for the privilege, it is bound to be an astounding vehicle.

Lincoln’s Navigator and Cadillac’s Escalade wave the American flag with pride, and both are deserving entries to any shopping list.
