Performance, plug-in, or pedestrian: there’s a 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE for almost every luxury-SUV buyer.

Pros
Wide palette of body styles, powertrains, trims
GLE Coupe, for the well-to-do contrarian
Powertrain choice abounds
Composed, quiet ride

Cons
AMG = $$$
Not so fuel-efficient
Addled infotainment interface
Odd feature availability
Coupe body costs money, space

By:

The AMG GLE 43 is slightly more powerful, increasing engine output from 362 horsepower to 385 hp. Otherwise, the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class is unchanged for 2018.

PROS
Multiple available powertrains make each model distinct
Interior is quiet, upscale and roomy
Abundant list of standard safety, tech and luxury features
AMG variants are seriously quick

CONS
Not many places to store small personal items
Punishing ride on AMG models, with little benefit to handling
Ride quality with the standard suspension isn't as comfy as we expect
Base V6's acceleration is merely adequate

The 2018 Dodge Charger ranked #8 in Large Cars. Currently the Dodge Charger has a score of 7.9 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 53 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Powerful V8 engines
Handles well
Spacious seats
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Rivals have more upscale interiors
Driver visibility is limited
Low predicted reliability rating

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Dodge Charger has aged remarkably well–and if it’s four-door muscle you need, few sedans deliver its performance thrill.

Pros
Terrific V-8/rear-drive fun
V-6 is reasonably powerful and efficient
Ride and handling still impress
Still, an appealing look
Still has better infotainment than any Lexus

Cons
V-8s are heavy and thirsty
Low-buck base interior trim
No V-8/AWD pairing
In the running with the Nissan Frontier as the oldest vehicle on the market
