It’s hard to believe that a passenger car platform dwells underneath a vehicle as formidable as the Mercedes-Benz GL450. It’s one of the largest crossovers around and can easily pass for a truck-based SUV to the uninitiated. All the trappings of luxury travel are here in force, along with a potent turbocharged V8.

What's New for 2014

Just in case last year’s model lacked anything, Mercedes-Benz has added a split-view dash display and heated and cooled cupholders to the option list.

Choosing Your Mercedes-Benz GL450

Motivating the GL450’s bulk isn’t an issue for the standard 4.7-liter turbocharged V8. With 362 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque available, the GL 450 makes it from zero to 60 mph in 6.2 seconds, quite impressive for an all-wheel drive vehicle with 94 cubic feet of cargo space. All models are equipped with a self-leveling air suspension and a seven-speed automatic transmission.

The premium vinyl (or optional leather) interior does an exemplary job of transporting seven adults in quiet comfort. You get heated power seats in front, a power-folding third row and power rear quarter windows. Other perks includes Bluetooth phone and audio, HD radio, LED exterior lighting, a power liftgate and a review camera.

A panoramic sunroof and heated second-row seats are available as standalone options.

Most remaining features are bundled into packages:

CarsDirect Tip

Given the GL450’s size and family orientation, the available safety tech packages are money well spent—and might even be mandatory for drivers who’ve never handled a large vehicle before.
