2008 Mercedes-Benz GL Review

With its commanding view of the road ahead the 2008 GL Series from Mercedes lets you elevate the everyday drive and experience an entirely new journey. Generous legroom and headroom allow the driver and passengers to relax all the way while over 80 cubic feet of cargo space let you pack more than you ever thought possible. In command of the GL series is a 335 horsepower V-8 engine built for the passing lane. So you're perfectly poised to meet whatever adventure awaits you big or small. The GL is the only full-sized luxury SUV with uni-body construction which results in an exceptionally strong lightweight and rigid body structure. This plus four-wheel load-leveling suspension with adjustable ride height and air springs makes the trip out to the peaks as smooth and comfortable as the ride to preschool. To help you stay in control the new GL also offers the Electronic Stability Program to detect and correct oversteer and the 4-wheel Electronic Traction System to ensure that power is sent where the traction is. More Mercedes to love. The 2008 GL Series.
