Well you have to remember that when the GL was introduced gas was pretty high and people were generally shying away from big SUVs, but now gas prices have come back down. Mercedes just displayed the GL420 Bluetec at the Detroit Autoshow so you can expect it for the 2008 model year. The GL550 is likely too for 2008 also.
All those things you accessories are available now, I've GL450's with those things.
#153 of 183 Spare Tire of GL450?
Jan 29, 2007 (10:08 am)
I am in the market for GL450 and want to know whether it is possible to replace the compact spare tire to the *Full* size spare tire.
In my thought, it is completely nonsense to provide the only compact version although MB sells the *Offroad Package*.
Is the space under the 3rd row seats big enough for the full size tire??

Wanted to inquire about the new GL-550 announced for the U.S. at the New York auto show. I'm wondering if anyone has talked with a dealer yet about pricing and available options, delivery timing, etc. Any and all news appreciated!

Have had my 550 for six months and am completely pleased with it, aside from some awkward controls on the left stalk. Just did a 200 mile trip averaging 19.2 mpg. And (referring to the prior post) thought I had a full-sized spare, too, along with my off-road package, which was wonderful during the past snow season.

Even though gas have come down the price isn't worth it to me. MB isn't quite as reliable as I like to justify spending 70 grand for this SUV. The bad thing about the GL is that darn near everything is an option,which drives the price up well past 70 grand. I don't think it's worth it and you can get comparable Lux SUV's that come with a lot of standard features that are options on the GL.

Do someone knows what's the diff. in GL450 and GL550? like comparison link or something...
Looking on mbusa.com, there is diff. of price tag in GL550 by $20K vs GL450.

2008 Mercedes-Benz GL550 (Someone said it looks more like an ML than a GL - I think it looks a bit like Idaho ).
