The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is for the well-heeled family that needs the practicality of a three-row fullsize SUV but can’t bring themselves to buy the usual Tahoe, Yukon, or Escalade. Starting at a not-insubstantial $64,525, the GL is available with a frugal turbodiesel V-6, a new-for-2015 3.0L turbo V-6 for the GL450, and a choice of a thundering or ridiculous twin-turbo V-8 in the GL550 or GL63 AMG, respectively. Be forewarned of price tag inflation once you start moving up the model ladder and checking the option boxes. Top-level models can easily crest the $100,000 mark. Although the GL550 is available with low-range four-wheel drive, the Range Rover, Lexus LX 570, and Toyota Land Cruiser are better choices if you plan on regularly visiting off-road trails.
