The Mercedes Benz 2011 GL550 - Comfort and Power, Perfectly Combined

2011 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL 550

My 2011 Mercedes GL550 is the most comfortable vehicle I have had the pleasure of driving. The vehicle has two easy to switch to transmissions - sport and comfort. The sport transmission allows for a very authentic and fantastic sporty experience, while the comfort transmission fills the space between the tires and main body with air, giving it a smooth ride that is ideal for anyone with car sickness or easily aggravated illness/injury. It has an enormous amount of legroom in the front, and the seats are able to be customized down to the firmness of the seat, and the vehicle is able to save up to three seat configurations to be recalled later. It has huge trunk space with the third row seats down, and still has an impressive cargo area with the third row seats active. It boasts an entertainment system that can be synced to have the same thing playing on every monitor, or customized so each monitor broadcasts something different. I mean, you can play video games in it. That's pretty cool. It also has electrical outlets along side the typical car charging jacks. You can lock the vehicle by pressing a button on any of the four handles, and as long as the key is nearby, it will unlock when one of the handles is touched. It of course has Bluetooth, a GPS, radio, CD player, and iPod integration as well as Bluetooth phone integration. Many controls are a small stretch of a thumb away on the steering wheel, and the display directly in front of the driver will show everything a driver could possibly need to know - it even alerts you when any sort of service is required on the vehicle. The keyless start is pretty cool, the cruise control is excellent, the car is Neat. However, it is rather heavy and large, requires supreme gas, has pretty bad gas mileage, and its acceleration is not impressive compared to other Mercedes or other SUVs of similar engine power.
