  • We've long admired the great fuel efficiency delivered by modern turbo-diesel engines built in Europe. They seem like the ideal powerplants for large and heavy.

    Answered prayers: At 22 mpg, diesel power seems like a perfect match for a luxury SUV, but the fuel efficiency doesn't come cheaply.

    The Good As a full-size SUV that gets more than 21 mpg because of its diesel engine, the Mercedes-Benz GL CDI costs a lot less to.

    We can only hope that soon the system will be updated with what we saw in the Mercedes-Benz C Less enjoyably, the not-so-cheap tester's range of adjustments and toys were quite limited, and the sound system's quality and functionality had me searching for my IPod. Regarding how much diesel you get from dinojuice oil: Disorganized, confused, unknowledgeable would be my description.

    Mercedes-Benz GL CDI review: Mercedes-Benz GL CDI - Roadshow

    An adjustable suspension and off-road mode make it suitable for rough terrain. The Bad The stereo doesn't display track information for MP3 CDs and the infotainment interface's looks are as bad as its performance. The Bottom Line The cabin electronics and interface for the Mercedes-Benz GL CDI's infotainment system are old and have fallen far behind today's standards, but the diesel engine makes the car drive well and get incredible fuel economy for a full-size SUV.

    With its diesel engine, the Mercedes-Benz GL CDI transports seven people and plenty of cargo while getting mileage worthy of a midsize sedan. The oversize SUV from Mercedes-Benz features all the interior luxury we would expect from the German carmaker, along with performance that favors economy over power.

    Unfortunately, it uses the same baseline cabin gadgets we saw in its gasoline-engined counterpart, the Mercedes-Benz GL This system covers a lot of the basics well enough, but the interface is poor and some features are antiquated. Wine country road trip A large SUV sporting the Mercedes-Benz tri-star belongs in California's wine country, where upscale types pretend to rough it as they visit wineries and buy cases of the latest pinot noir or sauvignon blanc.

    To test out the GL, we took it on a trip to its natural environment, plotting a course 90 miles north from San Francisco to Lake Sonoma. It found the recreation area and calculated our route. The big SUV was unwieldy in the city, but once we got on the freeway it seemed more in its element. Keeping up with traffic and passing slower cars proved easy, as the seven-gear automatic kicked down to lower gears when we floored it, the tach rising up to the 4,rpm line. Yes, it's a diesel, so redline is at 4,rpm.

    Unlike diesels of the past, the GL didn't produce excessive noise or a particularly bad odor. We had an easy cruise in this luxurious box up Highway until the navigation system told us to take the Canyon Road exit, which turned out to be a nice country road through vineyards.

    A right on Dry Creek Road and we were in serious wine country, with vineyards and wineries at every stop. But we continued on our way to the Lake Sonoma Recreation Area, stopping to enjoy the views and stretch our legs.

    When we got back in the GL, we explored a little farther up a fantastic winding mountain road. But we quickly determined we were in the wrong vehicle for these types of exploits, as the GL wasn't making us comfortable in the corners.

    So we turned around before some sports car out for a spin caught up with us. We followed Dry Creek Road by numerous wineries to Healdsburg, where we reconnected with the highway. The car had been a reasonable cruiser off the beaten path, and we're sure its off-road gear, including an adjustable air suspension, could have handled some rougher terrain, but it wasn't really made for the twisties.

    We completed our trip back to San Francisco on Highway , doing speeds of around 70 mph. Then back in the city we traversed the tight streets and made it back to headquarters.
