Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

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

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 2022 QX60 will be a ground-up redesign of the brand's three-row SUV complete with more dramatic styling, new powertrains, and a more premium cabin.Infiniti hasn't released pricing information yet, nor has it disclosed the 2022 QX60's available trim levels, standard features, or option packages. Judging by the smaller QX50 and larger QX80's trim levels, the mid-range Essential model will likely offer the best balance of features and value, but we'll update this story with more details once the production model is unveiled.
