It’s a large SUV capable of seating up to seven passengers with solid towing capacity and a broad range of off-road equipment for folks who like the great outdoors. The GL line-up includes the GL320 3.0-liter, the GL450 4.6-liter and the GL550 5.5-liter, with engines ranging from a 215 horsepower 3.0-liter V6 to a 382 horsepower 5.5-liter V8. Standard equipment includes auto climate control, cruise, keyless entry, navigation, heated lumbar seats, AM/FM/CD/MP3/Satellite audio, airbags, ABS and traction control.Read more Read less
New for 2008, the GL550 adds Mercedes-Benz' impressive 5.5L V8 engine to the GL-Class. These vehicles are built alongside--and share many parts with--the M and R-Classes. Due in part to its unibody construction, the GL-Class offers nearly the same agility as smaller SUVs, only it carries a gigantic 83.3 cubic feet of cargo space. All models feature automatic four-wheel-drive and a smooth seven-speed automatic transmission.
As nimble as a much smaller vehicle; available with two powerful gas V8s or a modern diesel; luxurious, reliable, safe, and stylish.
The 2008 GL-Class is the large basketball-team-sized SUV in the Mercedes-Benz stable, making M-B a serious contender in the full-size luxury sport utility segment. The GL320 CDI has a state-of-the-art diesel engine. Besides offering enormous reserves of torque and making the GL320 CDI one of the only seven-passenger SUVs that can boast a highway fuel economy rating of 24 mpg, it is quiet, doesn't smell, and satisfies emissions requirements. The GL450 V8 is also a remarkable vehicle for family hauling adventures, with loads of luxury features and room, as well as 335 horsepower. But if even that's not enough, the GL550 kicks out 382 horses to drive its massive 21-inch aluminum wheels, and most of the goodies that are optional on the lesser GL-Class are standard on the GL550.
