Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

When you're shopping for a full-size luxury SUV there's no reason to compromise. The 2017 Lincoln Navigator offers room for eight, classic American styling and most of the high-tech features you would expect in a modern family vehicle.The 2017 Lincoln Navigator gets no significant changes from the previous model year.

Pros
Serene ride over any kind of road surface
Lots of cargo room in both the standard and extended length versions
Easy-to-use tech interface
Substantial towing capacity allow it to handle large trailers.

Cons
Some of the cabin materials look and feel cheap for a vehicle in this price range
Doesn't offer some of the advanced safety features available on competitors.

The 2017 Lincoln Navigator has exceptional interior room, lots of bling, and unexpectedly good handling.Crossovers come, crossovers go, but full-size SUVs like the Lincoln Navigator have spent more time in vogue than Elle MacPherson. When gas prices are low, they're on the A-list; when fuel costs as much as an airplane ticket, they're still on the A-list, and they're not shy about it.

Pros
Vast cabin—or vaster, if you need
Tops in ride and handling
New infotainment features
Gas mileage is on the rise
Twin-turbo V-6 is a blast

Cons
Still a big 'ute in a downsized era
Still a 6-speed automatic
Adaptive dampers bundled as expensive options

The 2017 Lincoln Navigator ranks 7 out of 8 Luxury Large SUVs. If you're looking to buy a large luxury SUV with three rows of seats, the 2017 Lincoln Navigator is your cheapest way to get there. It also leads the class in both towing capacity and cargo space. However, you can find swankier interiors in most rivals, and the Navigator has a sparse list of driver assistance features.

Pros
Brawny engine with above-average fuel economy
Excellent towing capacity
Outstanding cargo room
Adult-friendly third-row seats

Cons
Few driver assistance features available
Interior feels outdated and low-rent to some

The GLS-Class officially makes its debut for 2017, though it's really a slightly revised version of the outgoing GL-Class. Highlights include modified exterior styling, a newly standard nine-speed automatic transmission (except on the AMG GLS 63) and a touchpad-operated infotainment system with a larger screen and available Apple CarPlay. Also, all engines except the GLS450's turbocharged V6 get a bit more horsepower this year.

Pros
Third row is large enough for adults
Spirited acceleration with any of the three gasoline engines
Impressive fuel economy with the diesel engine
Quiet cabin with high-end trimmings and features.

Cons
Diesel-powered model feels relatively slow when passing and merging
Big price jump from the six-cylinder models to the V8-powered versions.

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS gets the first-class upgrade along with its name change—and a Maybach edition is waiting in the wings.
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class marks a significant, mid-cycle upgrade for what was previously knew as the GL-Class. As part of a nomenclature change sweeping the entire brand, each of the German luxury maker's sport-utility vehicles has received new badging and a full or partial makeover to bring the lineup into more obvious parallels with its sedans—so this large, three-row SUV becomes the GLS, to align it with the largest S-Class sedan. Hence the S in its new name.

Pros
Spacious, flexible interior
Rugged-lux, with some added panache
Great set of safety, infotainment features

Cons
Not an entirely new vehicle
Some switchgear looks dated
Cumbersome COMAND interface

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class ranks 1 out of 8 Luxury Large SUVs. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS hits most of the right notes for a large SUV. It boasts a supple ride, three powerful engine choices, three rows of roomy seats, and the same level of luxury that has come to be synonymous with the brand. However, the GLS has fewer standard features than many rivals do, and its available V8 engines are less fuel-efficient than those offered by many competitors.

Pros
Powerful engine lineup
Smooth ride
Three rows of spacious seats

Cons
Fewer features than some rivals
V8 engines get subpar fuel economy
