Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class is a three-row crossover SUV that redefines luxurious family transport.

Pros
Sublime demeanor
Posh interior
Strong turbocharged engines
Impressive dynamics
AMG, Maybach editions sure to come

Cons
Hefty price
Hefty curb weight
Hefty fuel consumption
Occasional cheap touch

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: 
caranddriver.com

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

By:

The 2021 Lincoln Aviator comes with a 4 yr./ 50000 mi. basic warranty, a unlimited yr./ unlimited mi. roadside warranty, and a 6 yr./ 70000 mi. powertrain warranty.Minor changes to option and appearance packages.

Pros
Upscale design inside and out
Powerful standard engine provides quick acceleration
Lots of advanced features
Available plug-in hybrid powertrain

Cons
Doesn't have an abundance of headroom
Overly soft handling saps driver confidence
Subpar visibility to the front and rear

By:

The 2021 Lincoln Aviator drops sensational style and space, but the Grand Touring plug-in’s a bit of a misfire.

Pros
A 7/8ths Navigator
Big infotainment displays
Hybrid plug-in
Lots of room for four adults
Gorgeous Black Label interiors

Cons
It’s $$$$
Third row is small
The V-6 moans
Grand Touring: not electric enough?

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The Aviator sees only minor changes for 2021, including optional 21- and 22-inch wheel designs, three new colors (Asher Gray, Ocean Drive Blue, and Flight Blue), and an available Monochromatic Reserve appearance package. The Reserve trim receives a panoramic sunroof, and the top-flight Black Label gains soft-close doors. The Elements package—found on the Reserve and Grand Touring models—now comes with heated and ventilated front seats.

Pros
Polished turbo V-6 powertrain,
comfortable interior,
plenty of curb appeal.

Cons
Unrefined optional hybrid powertrain,
disappointing fuel economy,
most expensive Black Label trim encroaches Navigator's price range.
