5. Mercedes-Benz GL-Class
There’s no denying the supremacy of this family-oriented SUV. It is as close as you can get to an S-Class with four-wheel drive and three rows of seating, even sharing many interior appointments. Like the S-Class, there is plenty of room for even taller adults to sit in any seat, making it a standout among family vehicles. The interior is luxurious and incredibly quiet, even on the freeway. Ride quality is excellent as well, thanks in part to the air suspension. When it comes to power, you can have plenty of it with the V8 engine, although V6 and diesel engines are available for those who want to visit the gas station less often. If money is no object, consider the insane GL63 AMG, which is powered by a 5.5-liter biturbo V8 that is handcrafted with the loving care of an AMG tech, resulting in an earth-shattering 550 horsepower that will get you to soccer practice in a hurry.
