Lets keep it real

The 2013 Mercedes Benz GL and ML have chrome on the front and back of the vehicle just like the new jeep, but if you are a hater of north American automobile all the imports are perfectly well design what a bunch of BS.

Re: Lets keep it real

I have never seen a Mercedes that I thought was cool looking. They look boring.

Re: Lets keep it real

The ML and GL have chrome because they are made in Alabama. That's why they have a gun rack option.

(Hey...my response makes as much sense as the original comment)

I'm not a big fan of their SUVs, although the GLK is kind of unique. Wouldn't mind owning an S-Class though (or an E or a C).

Of the "big three" German luxury car makers though, based on styling alone my favorite is Audi, although many call their cars boring too -- they're certainly styled more conservatively than MB's.

American English Translation:

Both the 2013 Mercedes GL and ML have chrome on the front and back. This is very similar to the 2014 JGC. If you are critical of the 2014 JGC because it has too much chrome, then you should be critical of the Mercedes GL and ML too. Otherwise, you are eurotrash.

Oh, that's what he was saying.

I disagree. While I'm not opposed to chrome, I am opposed to American cars trying to look like European cars. The GC was great because it was decidedly American looking. The 14 goes down the path of "I wish I was an ML or Touareg", which I think is a mistake.

Re: Lets keep it real

I think what he is saying is the Mercedes ML/GL models have the same chrome as the new Jeep. If you hate all the chrome on US models, the European models don't have as much...sound better??
