When investing in a luxury SUV, it is important to make sure your money goes to the right place. How could anyone possibly know what to do in this situation? Although the options are less abundant than that of the sedan, the full-size SUV market is still a vast black hole of confusion that can put drivers into a state of severe depression if unprepared. To save you from imminent unhappiness, we have narrowed down the luxury SUV market to two of the best in the industry, leading us to this 2016 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class vs 2016 Lexus LX comparison.
Let's be honest. Both of these SUVs will get you to work and back. But is that really all you want in an SUV? Why not have the best? How much value can you really find in a car? In the case of these two luxury SUVs, the answer is boundless. Both offer powerful V8 engines and they both get the same gas mileage of 13 miles per gallon in the city and 18 miles per gallon on the highway. Both vehicles also offer the latest in driver-assistance technology and safety features, stretching the search for superiority even further.
The GL-Class has a slightly higher MSRP, but it is worth every dime. With a powerful and efficient biturbo engine, the GL550 comes with 429 horsepower, nearly 50 more than the Lexus LX. Additionally, the GL-Class has more than 100 more lb-ft of torque, a higher towing capacity, and a much faster 0-60 time. This extra utility more than makes up for the measly $2,000 price difference. The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class will be discontinued after 2016, so this is your last chance to purchase one brand new!
