Sitting atop the Mercedes-Benz SUV hierarchy is the spacious and indisputably luxurious GLS-Class. It's all new for 2020 and it has big shoes to fill—we've named the outgoing GLS-Class to our 10Best Trucks and SUVs list for three straight years—but our first impressions of this new big Benz are very good.

Pros
Tech-rich cabin, spacious in all three rows, refined powertrains.

Cons
Anonymous styling, fussy infotainment system, heavily optioned models carry high price tags

By:

New styling in line with other Mercedes SUVs.Powerful mild hybrid powertrains.Standard adjustable air suspension.All-new third GLS generation launched for 2020.

Pros
MBUX infotainment is outstanding
Tops in comfort and easily seats adults in all three rows
Flexible cargo capacity
Responsive powertrains feel like driving a smaller SUV

Cons
Not as off-road-worthy as some rugged competitors
Somewhat vague steering with large wheels and thin tires
MBUX has a steep learning curve

The 2018 Ford Edge has an eager feel and crisp design; safety scores and Sport ride quality give pause.The Edge satisfies more than a few needs. It’s sleeker than the truck-infused Expedition, even the Explorer. It’s more spacious than the Escape. It’s also devoid of any off-road pretense, any faux-SUV ruggedness.

Pros
Quick steering
Cabin’s muted details
Wide range of engines
Composed ride on small-tire models
Edge Sport lives up to name

Cons
Seats are a big letdown
Real-world fuel economy
Stiff Sport ride

The Ford Endura is Ford Australia’s first large soft-road SUV since it stopped producing the Territory. It is powered by a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel that’s both powerful and relatively economical. It is good to steer, with polished cornering manners for a large SUV. There are front-drive and all-wheel-drive versions, and auto-braking is standard.

Pros
Punchy engine;
roadholding,
cabin space,
standard features.

Cons
Dated dashboard,
no petrol option.

Many Australians sorely miss the locally built Ford Territory. We’ve had our first local drive of the imported Endura to discover whether that large-SUV product gap has been adequately filled…

Pros
Spacious rear seat and big boot Good steering
Ride comfort and secure handling on country roads
Smooth and quiet turbo diesel
Lots of technology/features from entry model upwards

Cons
No third-row seating despite vehicle’s size
Performance only adequate
Urban ride quality still an unknown
Cabin presentation a bit underwhelming
$4000 charge for AWD
