Comparison: Mercedes-Benz GLS vs Cadillac Escalade
When Mercedes-Benz offers a family vehicle, it has to satisfy the needs of every occupant aboard. But, it goes beyond that. A family vehicle needs to be safe, engineered to the highest standards, offer the latest in technology and offer the level of luxury expected in a Mercedes-Benz.
There is a vehicle that exactly meets and exceeds all of these expectations. It is the Mercedes-Benz GLS. It is our three-row family SUV that offers “the best.”
But the truth is that the GLS 450 offers pretty much everything you’d want out of a proper Mercedes sedan, combined with pretty much everything you’d want out of a towing-focused full-size SUV. It’s the kind of vehicle that grows on you with every passing mile as you become conscious of all the intelligent little decisions and choices made in its design and engineering.- Jack Baruth – Road & Track
