Unibody, but they share a lot in common with the 166 chassis.

Thanks. But the ML was body on frame, correct? Or was it unibody as well?

Unibody, and the GLS chassis is exactly the same as the x166.

Before or after the rollover?

Considering that the vehicles on the top of the trailer had quite the ride to the ground, they held together amazingly well. The X166 is a solid platform.

A sinking feeling

What a sinking feeling
Years ago I ordered a new Volvo XC90.
There was a shipping accident and my Volvo along with 2,870 new Volvos,
BMWs and Saabs sank.
In the interim the Volvo V70R was released and I ordered one those.
The V70R was a hoot. I loved that car!

i'd love to see the sides of the cars on the ground to see the damage and how well they held up

I agree, but they wouldn't be required to inform the customer as long as the damage didn't reach 3-6 % of MSRP. Lame.

When a car rolls over like that its an insurance right off, so no one will be driving those cars, will be stripped for parts
