2013 Mercedes-Benz GL Wins Motor Trend SUV of the Year

Motor Trend Car, Truck, and SUV of the year honors are coveted awards for any automobile manufacturer, and this year Mercedes-Benz brings home the gold with it's all-new GL. As the article notes:
The 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL truly is the complete package. As Mortara attests, "There is nothing more you could want or need in an SUV." Our editor-in-chief Loh puts it more colorfully: "Imagine a gigantic Swiss Army knife, with 50-some tools (one of the tools is a Leatherman, which itself has 50 tools). Now imagine all the blades are gold-plated platinum, and the inlaid mother-of-pearl handle is wrapped in leather from a Himalayan bald eagle. That's basically the GL."

At first glance against our six criteria -- Performance of Intended Function, Design Advancement, Engineering Excellence, Efficiency, Safety, and Value -- the Mercedes nails five of them. Value is, of course, the sticky wicket. But as stated earlier, when you start comparing apples to apples, the GL is no more expensive than the vehicles it directly competes against. And when you consider just how ahead of its class the big Benz is, you realize that the GL is indeed six for six. Impressively well done again, Mercedes.

Awesome! I have a 2010 GL450 now, but in a few years we will be replacing it with this newer model. I love the 10', I can only imagine how the new model performs.
