Gone are the days of accepting ordinary. You’ve worked long hours at a hard job and deserve something to look forward to on the drive home. Mercedes-Benz has a couple of great options for people like you; SUVs built for the luxury-savvy consumer without the excess junk you don’t need. Check out the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 4MATIC® vs 2018 Mercedes-Benz G 550.
The most noticeable difference between these two is the shape of each. The GLS 450 4MATIC® looks like a typical luxury SUV from the outside, but the G 550 is unique in that it has a boxy shape and a more retro look to it.

Aside from the exterior appearance, there’s another big difference worth mentioning as well: price.

Direct injection and multi-spark ignition
Efficient turbocharger configuration
NANOSLIDE cylinder wall technology
Permanent all-wheel drive with 2-speed transfer case

and much more!
