2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS
2017 Audi Q7
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS comes standard with the advanced 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system, and you’ll have three impressive powertrains to choose from. The GLS 350d gets a fuel-efficient 3.0L turbo-diesel, which makes 255 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque. Step up to the GLS 450 for a bi-turbo 3.0L V6 that puts out 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Finally, at the top of the line is the GLS 550 with a 4.6L V8 that churns out 449 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.
The 2017 Audi Q7 gets its own standard all-wheel drive system, but there are only two available engine options. The base engine is a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder that only makes 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. Even the available supercharged 3.0L V6 only makes 333 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque, coming in well below the Mercedes-Benz GLS’s capabilities.
