Mercedes-Benz Santa Barbara invites drivers to explore the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class to discover what makes it such a one-of-a-kind luxury SUV.  The 2013 GL-Class was recently named the 2013 Motor Trend SUV of the Year.  The SUV received raving reviews for its innovative combination of luxury design, pioneering safety, and rewarding performance.

“This SUV is certainly in a class of its own,” states Mercedes-Benz Sales Manager Bill Fogg.  “Of all the luxury full-size SUVs on the market, nothing comes close to delivering the same kind of incredible driving experience and performance engineering.”

Motor Trend panelists specifically praised the bold, muscular shape of the GL-Class.  In addition, the 2013 GL-Class offers California Mercedes-Benz drivers the space, luxury, and efficiency they desire.  Extensive wind-tunnel refinement has hushed wind noise, enhanced handling stability, and reduced drag, while the advanced high-strength body structure provides elevated safety.

The interior of the Mercedes-Benz 2013 GL-Class was designed with the comfort and convenience of the driver in mind.  Hand-polished wood and sleek brushed metal trim are precision crafted.  Featuring heated power front seats and a power-folding third row, the GL-Class combines full-size accommodations with refined style.  Optional hand-fitted leather massaging seats and multicolor ambient lighting are also available for an even more exquisite driving experience. And, more spacious than ever, the GL-Class accommodates up to seven adults or over 93cu ft of cargo.  The 60/40 split 2nd row seats fold flat in seconds offering convenient access to the folding 3rd row seat.

In addition to providing ample space and refined surroundings, 2013 GL-Class owners have the choice of three advanced Direct Injection engines that generate impressive power for the road.  From biturbo gasoline V8s in the GL450 and GL550 to the clean diesel V6 in the GL350, each model features incredible horsepower and a torque-rich response for quick acceleration and up to 7,500 lbs of towing capacity.  Standard 4MATIC™ all-wheel drive integrates the 4-Wheel Electronic Traction System to continually redistribute power to the wheels with the best grip giving the GL-Class more capability no matter the conditions.

All of these features combine into one class-leading luxury SUV.  In fact, when revealing the results MotorTrend states that the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class not only leads its competitive class, but “is the best new SUV on the market period, and the winner of our prize.”
