The GL ranked tenth among all premium brand SUVs and crossovers in terms of Canadian April sales, 103 sales back of Mercedes-Benz’s own GLK. In so doing, the GL made other full-size luxury SUVs look terribly niche. That’s not a bad thing if exclusivity is your goal, but we all know automakers – luxury or mainstream – want to sell in large numbers these days.
“Wherever we are not number one, we will strive to become it,” Mercedes-Benz boss Dieter Zetsche said two years ago.
Regardless, the GLs popularity in upper-class communities hasn’t reduced the level of attraction upper-class communities feel toward the GL.
