2012 GL350 BlueTec Review in TDD

I spent a solid week with a brand new GL350 BlueTec recently and was pretty impressed by the car overall.

2012 Mercedes-Benz GL350 BlueTec Review and Test Drive


By Jonathan Spira
The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class made its debut at the 2006 North American International Auto Show in New York and was designed with the North American market in mind. It is currently offered in three versions, the GL350 BlueTec, with a 3.0-liter V-6 turbo-charged diesel engine, the gasoline-powered GL450, with a 4.6-liter V-8, and the GL550, which comes with a 5.5-liter gasoline V-8.


The GL is manufactured alongside the M-Class and R-Class at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, which opened in 1997 with the first-generation M-Class.

Excellent catch. The correct weight is 5,512 pounds and we've corrected the chart on the last page. Thanks for pointing this out.
