Mercedes-Benz doesn't offer the bodystyle variants of its GL-Class, soon to be known as the GLS, but Mercedes-Benz does offer powertrain variants. There's a diesel, a twin-turbo V6, a twin-turbo V8, and another twin-turbo V8, the GL63 AMG. 

Together, all these GLs combined for a 4% increase to 27,707 U.S. sales in 2014, more than the Infiniti QX80 and Lincoln Navigator combined. And 2015 was a good year for the QX80 and Navigator. 

In the midst of all this there is the ultimate luxury SUV, at least for the moment. The Land Rover Range Rover is an icon, with more history and royalty and pomp and circumstance in its glovebox than the Escalade and Navigator could even dream of mustering.
