The second-generation Mercedes-Benz GL-Class sport utility has won Autoweek magazine's 2013 "Best of the Best" award for its truck category. The full story on the GL-Class SUV is available in the magazine’s January 7 edition. The Acura RDX, the Infiniti JX35, the Ford Escape, and the Mazda CX-5 were runner-ups in the truck category.
"We're extremely pleased that the GL-Class has been awarded Autoweek magazine's 'Best of the Best award,' " said Steve Cannon, president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz USA. "With the broadest powertrain offering of any full size SUV, not to mention the impressive depth of its functionality, our GL-Class won out over some formidable competition. From the very beginning, the GL-Class has been perfectly tuned to the needs of U.S. customers, who made the GL the segment-leading sales performer."
