Car and Driver “10Best Trucks and SUVs” List and Refreshed 2017 GLS450
Car and Driver’s “10Best Trucks and SUVs” list recognizes the best new or refreshed trucks, SUVs and crossover vehicles of 2017 starting under $80,000. The GLS450 is even more impressive for 2017 thanks to an extensive redesign, with a dynamic, new exterior and a revised, more luxurious interior. On the exterior, the focus has been placed on a redesign of the front end, while the rear has been modernized around the bumper and with full LED taillamps. The GLS450 interior include a newly designed instrument panel with media display, new 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel, modified center console with touchpad and new trim options.
“Are there other large SUVs that can tow more or carry more stuff or that cast bigger shadows? Of course, but none can match the GLS450’s ride, handling or refinement, even though more than a few can brush up against its MSRP when comparably equipped. Roll in the model’s family-friendly functionality and its garage-friendly size, and it’s easy to see why the GLS450 nabs our 10Best award for large SUV.” – Car and Driver
