2008 Mercedes-Benz GL320 CDI

Answered Prayers: At 22 mpg, power seems like a match for a luxury SUV, but the efficiency doesn#146;t come

We’ve long admired the fuel efficiency delivered by turbo-diesel engines built in They seem like the powerplants for large and heavy such as the SUVs that crave when fuel are reasonable. A favorite of ours in category is the Mercedes GL, so when a V-6 was added to the lineup with the models, we decided to see how it would in the U.S.

The GL320 CDI, as the diesel is was the least expensive model in the GL with a base price of when it was delivered in August At that price it comes nicely, but we also specified options to make it even comfortable. The Premium 1 package added a rearview-backup camera, sensors, a glass sunroof, a system, satellite radio to a better sound system, and a passenger seat, steering and liftgate.

We also selected the rear-seat package ($2670) with second-row screens to pacify on long trips and the Keyless Go ($1110) to relieve us of the burden of to fish for the car’s key fob in order to the GL’s doors and start its The Heating package ($895) let us the steering wheel and the rear (front-seat heaters are standard). paint added $710. We ordered the $510 Towing along with a $510 control to make it easier to the nav system, and finally, a $375 package. It came to $66,955far cheap but within the range of large luxo SUVs.

Curious about this key feature, the crew here found the diesel engine to be satisfying. Overall, we averaged 22 mpg the GL, which is terrific for a vehicle about the same size and as a Cadillac Escalade. It didn’t matter whether we drove the in town or on the highway, the mileage consistently in the low 20s, rising to the if we kept our highway speed 75 mph.

When the GL first arrived, we concerned that finding the ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel be a problem, but it turned out to be everywhere. It was in supply at one particular gas station in Pennsylvania, where the diesel did not carry the ULS label and the humanoids at the gas had never heard of the stuff.

The characteristic diesel rattle and exhaust are minimal in the GL. At startup in the never required a long waitwe noticed that the V-6 is a little louder than a engine, especially if you’re in an garage. But once under the rattle quickly fades. we only saw a touch of smoke cold starts.
