    Mercedes-Maybach GLS600 Is the Brand's Chauffeur-Ready Top Model
    CarandDriver


    • The Mercedes-Maybach GLS600 4Matic sits atop the high-end-luxury SUV market alongside the equally new Aston Martin DBX.
    • The new SUV shares its structure and dimensions with the "regular" Mercedes GLS and the Mercedes-AMG 63 SUVs that were also just unveiled this week.
    • This ultraluxurious Maybach is powered by an electrified version of the AMG 558-hp 4.0-liter V-8, teamed with a nine-speed automatic transmission.

    Life isn't fair. Get used to it.

    Mercedes and Cadillac are supposed to be competitors. That hasn't changed.

    Cadillac never properly competed with the high end Mercedes cars. They never built anything like the 600.

    Do you live under a rock? Cadillac made factory Chauffeured sedans and limos through the 70's. See Fleetwood's and Series 75's for further education.

    Inside looks nice, can't say the same for the exterior.

    Who cares.. This is a Grandma car.. You want a proper Cadillac?



    Quilt all you want



    and then there is this



    I get Mercedes, but they are not competing with Cadillac.

    Cadillacs have a very American flair.....

    America is not Chauffeur land, even Warren buffett, Barrah, Gates, etc drive themselves.. Cadillacs reflect that.. City Cadillac's are BOF, just like the V 16's of yore, they were towncars, basically taxis for the rich..

    The exterior is fine, but I do wish they had distinguished it a little more. But that interior, especially the second row, makes Cadillac look like a Buick or Acura.

    Proving once again you don't understand high end luxury segment. Performance is cheap, ask any ricer with an aftermarket turbo and coffee can exhaust. True luxury takes style, class, and execution that Cadillac hasn't had for a lonngggg time.

    Style and class are all in the head. Execution comes down to how much money you want to waste. Are you saying Warren Buffet has no class?

    I think a XT-6 "Brougham" edition would slot in above the Platinum and be able to go toe to toe with Mybach GLS600.

    In the end, it’s just dead cows and a laptop in the car. Frankly, the people outside do not care.. it’s all in the head. They might care about the car.. but they do not love or care for you.

    it ain't impressive at all except for the price
    It looks like something that came from an aftermarket company that didn't have idea how to customise it.
    Two-tone paint in this color configuration makes it look like it was half-dirty.
