If you’ve been trying to find the perfect luxury SUV for your tastes, you already know the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover and the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS are both good places to start. Over the years, the Land Rover model has made a case for itself as a premium family vehicle with plenty of style and class, and the Mercedes-Benz GLS, too, continues to turn some heads throughout Bonita Springs and Cape Coral. When put next to one another, though, the Land Rover SUV has no trouble taking the lead. Find out how it achieves this feat, and then make the trip to Land Rover Fort Myers for a test drive and to learn more about your financing options on the new Land Rover Range Rover.

Performance Capabilities

Both of these luxury models are offered with a range of commanding powertrains, including turbo-diesel, V6, and V8 options. However, when it comes to rugged off-road performance, the Land Rover Range Rover makes quick work of the Mercedes-Benz GLS. For starters, the Mercedes-Benz GLS is a crossover SUV that’s only offered with all-wheel drive, while the Land Rover Range Rover is a genuine body-on-frame SUV that comes with full-time four-wheel drive for added reassurance through all life’s twists and turns.Plus, while the Mercedes-Benz GLS is offered with available features like DYNAMIC SELECT terrain settings and a two-speed transfer case, it cannot keep up with the high standard set by the performance-enhancing technology of the Land Rover Range Rover, which includes features like:

  • Active locking rear differential
  • Terrain Response® 2
  • All-Terrain Progress Control

Premium Features

If you’re looking for quality, you’ll find it in spades inside the cabins of both these SUVs, which each come standard with a climate control system, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display, heated front seats, and more. However, the Land Rover SUV clearly sets itself apart from the Mercedes-Benz model by offering a number of standard features you won’t find inside the GLS, including:

  • Leather upholstery
  • Satellite radio
  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • Rear parking sensors

Also, the Land Rover Range Rover is offered with a fully-immersive 29-speaker Meridian™ sound system, while the largest available stereo on the Mercedes-Benz GLS comes with only 14 speakers.
