MB GL63 Tested

This month's Car and Driver had a short article on their road test of the GL63.

2013 Mercedes Benz GL63 AMG Test Review


To sum it up in my book, it's slower, has even worse fuel economy, and costs about $25 grand more. I had considered the GL550 (I never liked the ML) while truck shopping last month and wondered if I should wait to see how the GL63 performs. I am really glad I didnt wait.
