Awesome road clearance but no guards for mud. It's only named as coupe but in actual is a SUV truck i guess. Coz too much ride height. I am pretty much sure as with road grip it's also not that much perfection-ed.

You'll have to drift in the sand or mud given that it is AWD. Then, the throttle will pull back and not allow you to spin the wheels or slide the rear end out.

My 2008 GL has a governor in reverse! I can't go over 15mph. But, in deep snow I can floor the throttle and it tracks straight without any hands on the wheel; it does the same with the brakes pushed down hard - amazing.

Somewhat disillusioned...
This is a great driver's car, except for the comand center and lack of gauges.
The little gremlins come and go at will.

Had a test drive with both MB GLE and BMW X6... Completely useless vehicles IMHO. Both look huge from the outside, but are smaller inside than ML and X5 respectively. Sporty? Only sporty thing about these trucks is AMG or M badge on the rear bumper. And the prices... Perfect cars for douche bags that have absolutely no interest in cars whatsoever i guess
