over the last decades of the gone by certain Automotive were always a topic of owning a luxurious brand a of pride and of course the luxury and strata of it all. One noticeable though was a segment of companies to be discussed in same breath. If owned a BMW there wouldn’t be a in that group commenting on a So there was stiff social of BMW with a Mercedes or an Audi. Chevy and a Toyota wouldn’t come into the same either.

However, times and so do people and today we are no more in the frenzy of simply a name but at everything any car has to offer. One of the most brand older than any of us Mercedes can only envy the of a company which was born after the rebranding of the former World War I.

If Toyota is giving sleepless to all major companies worldwide in the segment they are not sitting with their large either. Here we will a look at the GL series of Mercedes the GL500 model and the Land from Toyota .


the cars are the bigger boys in the car tree. We shall look the similarities and dissimilarities and which one superior simultaneously.


If the have come up with a 5.5 L DOHC 32 Valve V8 engine the Japanese have put in a 5.7 DOHC 32 V8 engine with Dual Variable Valve Timing intelligence (VVT-i) capable of more power.

The GL 500 peaks at 382 horsepower and an impressive 391 lb-ft of whereas Land Cruiser 381 horsepower and a superior 401 lb-ft of


Both are 4 wheel but Mercedes a 7 speed automatic with column shifter and it is adaptive while the Toyota is a 6 automatic transmission with (Electronically Controlled Transmission intelligence).

The models aren’t different when it comes to or downhill driving assistance and topography, also the two always the torque by half for front and axles.

Braking System, Electronic Distribution and Brake Assist appear on both and so do ventilated brakes on all 4 wheels. However, the Cruiser has a 4 and 2 front/rear piston the GL 500 has 2-piston fixed in the front and floating in the rear.

The suspension in the cars are common among the vehicles with all wheel air and independent double wishbone, alloy and iron arms stabilizer and spring struts.

of them compromise on the Electronic control or all wheel traction systems.

This is an aspect especially in cars of segment with global prices touching the sky and expected to be in outer space down the The two go neck to neck in this with Toyota beating by a mile per gallon. The city and mileage of the GL 500 is about 12 and 17 miles per respectively while that of the Cruiser is 13 and 18 miles per gallon .

has a fuel tank capacity of gallons and Mercedes offers a 26.4 gallons . The former has a capacity of 8200 lbs and the latter a less of 7500 lbs . It seems wants to show it is not a leader in but also with power. Mercedes is content with the and luxurious portrayal of the brand.

On the and Inside

The Land Cruiser is much compact than the GL 500 . it not only has a lower profile but is also wide externally however it is inferior to the rival in headroom and out surprisingly with more leg shoulder room and all this a seating capacity of 8 while the offers 7 .

Luxury of Driving!

Not into much of the safety and features since both in with most standard and all active and passive systems one needs in a state of the art car. is interesting to note is that has almost kept the entire and technology package as an optional and the base price doesn’t any of those. Mercedes does put in features however there is a few which one would have to be included in the price considering it is not a vehicle.

Take for instance, the Cruiser has all the following features as an which means it would more – Voice activated navigation system, Wireless DVD/CD player, User ports, the 14 speaker audio including a subwoofer and many

Mercedes to the contrary puts in the Navigation systems, the Entertainment and their own Mercedes Benz package.

But like the Japanese have also kept the LCD screens, heated rear and steering wheel and quite a few essentials as add on.

Mercedes GL500 is at more than 60,000 GBP in the UK and is in the United States at 84,450 USD and is as GL 550. The prices quoted are prices and go up with add on customization.

Land Cruiser starts at USD and one can safely assume it may go up close to the USD mark with all optional put in.

The Winner

Mercedes GL 500 is more than the rival however is a major price difference to be On that ground the GL 500 is expensive most other cars in segment by a good 10,000 to GBP or more than that in US

Coming in at a comparatively low price more power and mileage the Cruiser may end up taking a lead and on its market leader position various compact car and sedan I wouldn’t be surprised to see Toyota more than the SUV from
