Can The Mercedes-Maybach GLS Take On The Bentley Bentayga And Rolls-Royce Cullinan?

While the regular Mercedes-Benz GLS challenges the likes of the BMW X7, Cadillac Escalade and Range Rover, the Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 takes the battle to the ultra-luxurious Bentley Bentayga, Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Range Rover SVAutobiography.


On paper, it ticks most boxes, including the extravagant styling on the outside, a more luxurious cabin with the best materials and amenities required from such a vehicle, extra sound deadening for that cocooned feeling and a magic carpet ride that allows those sitting in the back to take a nap if they so please.

If it’s one thing it lacks, that is a twelve-cylinder engine; despite the ‘600’ badging, power is supplied by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 which delivers 550 HP (558 PS / 410 kW) and 538 lb-ft (729 Nm) of torque. The EQ Boost starter generator produces an extra 21 HP (21 PS / 16 kW) and 184 lb-ft (249 Nm), enabling a 0 to 60 mph (0-96 km/h) time of 4.8 seconds despite a weight of almost 3 tons (6,600 lbs), while top speed is limited to 155 mph (250 km/h).

At a base price of $161,550, including destination, the Maybach GLS 600 costs about the same as the Bentayga Hybrid and it is about half the price of a base Cullinan. So, if you want the most luxurious SUV in the market, should the Maybach be your first choice, or would you rather go for the Bentley, the Rolls-Royce or the Range Rover instead?
