Normally what you saw in this space were combined figures for the G-Class and the newer, fresher, not as alluring Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. That total was 273 units in April 2013. Fortunately, we now know that Mercedes-Benz sold 257 GL-Class SUVs in Canada last month plus 16 G-Class behemoths.
Keep in mind, these seven upper-echelon SUVs don't necessarily compete with one another. Top-tier BMW X5s and Porsche Cayennes and AMG Benz MLs play a role here, too. (The same could be said in every vehicle class, of course, with cars creeping up and down from other segments depending on trim and engine variants.)

Nevertheless, the Escalade, QX, Range Rover, LX, Navigator, G-Class, and GL-Class are the biggest and baddest and priciest SUVs that luxury automakers bring to the table. And though rare by F-Series/Elantra/Grand Caravan standards, they're surprisingly popular. They combined to find 498 buyers in April, 52% of whom came to the category through the Benz GL. Seven full-size mainstream brand SUVs only attracted 602 buyers last month.
