2008 Mercedes GL320 CDIThe powerful Mercedes GL Class SUV isone of the few large sized luxury SUV's with a unibody platform; if not the ONLY one. That makes it a crossover. The GL will actually seat 7. It can be had with a diesel V6; the GL350 BlueTEC, a 335hp 4.6 liter V8; the GL450 or the anti-social 381hp 5.5 liter V8.   The GL320 BlueTEC Diesel is the lowest cost GL, but I think for the small difference, the gas engined GL450 will be the better choice. The diesel will set you back $60,950.
