2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class?

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is a seven-seat luxury SUV that competes with the Cadillac Escalade, Lexus LX 570, Land Rover Range Rover, Audi Q7 and Infiniti QX56. It's available in GL350, GL450, GL550 and GL63 AMG trim levels.

What's New on the 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class?

Available as special order option, the new Splitview dashboard screen can show two different images on one display. The front passenger can watch a movie while the driver views navigation information.

How Does the 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Compare to Other Luxury SUVs?

The Cadillac Escalade offers more cargo room but has less sophisticated features and design than the GL-Class. While the Land Rover Range Rover has a similar starting price and features, it seats only five occupants and has a smaller cargo area. The Audi Q7 also offers less cargo room and interior volume, but it seats seven and starts at a lower price than the Benz.

What Features in the 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Are Most Important?

The 2014 GL-Class is available in four different performance configurations. The base-trim GL350 Bluetec 4Matic uses a turbo-diesel V-6 engine that produces 240 horsepower and 455 pounds-feet of torque. The GL450 4Matic upgrades to a 362-hp, twin-turbo gas-powered V-8 that supplies 406 pounds-feet of torque. The GL550 4Matic has a twin-turbo V-8 engine that produces 429 hp and 516 pounds-feet of torque. The top-of-the-line GL63 AMG uses a 5.5-liter V-8 engine with 550 hp. It reaches a top speed of 174 mph, according to Mercedes. An available off-road package adds skid plates, a locking center differential, a two-stage transfer case and an adjustment that can increase the standard air suspension's ground clearance to 12 inches.

Significant standard features include air suspension, 19-inch alloy wheels, aluminum running boards, 4.5-inch vehicle information screen, the knob-based Comand system, a faux leather dashboard and power-folding third-row seats. Active stabilizer bars, a power liftgate, panoramic sunroof, 20-inch or 21-inch wheels, leather upholstery and power-tumbling second-row seats are all available.

Standard safety features include an electronic stability system, antilock brakes, side-impact airbags in the front and rear, driver's knee airbag, side curtain airbags, a driver attention monitor and crosswind stabilization. Available features include a surround-view camera, collision warning and mitigation system, lane departure warning system, blind spot warning system and a PreSafe system that adds automatic braking to the collision mitigation system.

Should I Buy the 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class?

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is a great choice if you're looking for a large luxury SUV with plenty of third-row room and accessibility. It offers great performance throughout its four trim levels as well. However, leather seats aren't included standard.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
