GL550; 382bhp and 391 lb-ft of torque
CAYENNE S; 385bhp and 369 lb-ft. of torque.

GL550; 0-60 mph time of 6.4 seconds $82,175.
CAYENNE S; 0-60 mph time of 6.4 seconds $81,105.

Id go with the GL550 it does better on track and with 5.5 liter V8 it does pretty good with 13 in city and 18 on highway. With the price almost the same, once again id go with GL 550. But I'd rather have the GL320 BlueTEC diesel that starts at about $25K less. Mercedes also offers another V-8 GL, the GL450, which has a 335-hp, 4.7-liter V-8 with 339 lb-ft of torque and a 0-to-60-mph rating of a still-impressive 6.9 seconds.
