2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS

2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS vs 2017 Ford Expedition near Santa Rosa Beach, FL

                            

*The vehicle shown above is a GLS550 in Lunar Blue with standard 21-inch AMG twin spoke wheels.

When in the market for a top-notch SUV, we know how hard it can be for you to make up your mind, especially with so many options available. To determine who makes it to the top in the category of full-size SUVs, we at ZT Motors of Fort Walton Beach bring to you our comparison of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS vs 2017 Ford Expedition near Santa Rosa Beach, FL. Read on and find out why the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS unquestionably takes the cake.

For starters, you’ll find that luxury comes standard in the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS, whereas in the 2017 Ford Expedition, you’ll have to opt for a higher trim in order to get those perks you desire. For instance, the GLS gives you an interior to die for. The driver’s seat features powered adjustable positions and three memory settings. Meanwhile, both front seats boast heating to keep you and your side passenger comfortable at all times if the temperature should drop or should you drive out to a colder region of the country. In addition, a dual-zone automatic climate control allows front-seat passengers to establish individual temperature settings for added convenience. You will find none of these features will come in the Expedition’s base model.

Continuing with our research of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS vs 2017 Ford Expedition near Santa Rosa Beach, FL, we found that rain-sensing windshield wipers also come standard in the Mercedes-Benz GLS, as does a rear-window wiper with auto-on in reverse. The Ford Expedition will only offer you rain-sensing windshield wipers in its higher trims and no rear-window wiper to speak of. In the 2017 GLS, you’ll be able to plug-in your laptop, if needed, thanks to its standard household-type 115-volt AC power outlet in second row. The Expedition will only provide you its 110-volt power outlet if you add a package to your base trim or purchase a higher trim.

When it comes to might, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS offers more versatility and options with its four engine choices, one of which is a diesel. On the other hand, with the Ford, you’ll be stuck with its single powertrain: a 3.5L EcoBoost® engine. And, while the latter achieves a noteworthy 365 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque, it is no match to the gargantuan 577 horsepower and 561 lb.-ft. of torque that the GLS’ heftiest engine is capable of achieving.

Now that you know what you can look forward to from our comparison of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS vs 2017 Ford Expedition near Santa Rosa Beach, FL, you can take the next step and program a test drive of the GLS here with us at ZT Motors of Fort Walton Beach. Experience its luxury, sophistication, and power in person! Stop by today!

Although we could not agree on the price; they were responsive to my requests. I would recommend dealing with Toyota of Ft. Walton.

My husband and I live in Texas and recently went to Ft. Walton beach for vacation. We have a Mercedes 350 ML and while driving one morning, the abs, esp malfunction indicator came on. We started researching the problem and decided we needed to find a Mercedes service department to take a look at it before heading back to Texas. We found ZT Motors when we googled for repair shops and decided to go straight there since it was only a few miles from our hotel. When we pulled in, we were immediately directed to the service department where we met Michael McHugh. We explained the problem to him and he told us what he thought the problem was. He also told us they were backed up for 2 weeks; however, knowing our situation, he told us if we could come back the next morning, he would expedite the repair for us. We were there early the next morning and Michael immediately got our car in, and even arranged for us to have a loaner car so we could continue our vacation. They got our car repaired within a few hours the same day. I just want to say that Mike was absolutely awesome!! He was a real lifesaver for us and his commitment to providing excellent customer service is very evident. Not only Mike, but every person we met at ZT Motors was so accommodating and made us feel very special and well taken care of. Thank you ZT Motors for helping us in our time of need!!

Here visiting and the experience was top notch throughout. First call was with Cecil in parts where he ordered the part to arrive overnight. Second, Joleen scheduled an appointment at MY convenience the following day. Lastly, Barbara provided great service the same day. Thank you for helping us out while on vacation!!

I purchased a vehicle from ZT Motors a couple months ago and had some minor electrical issues with the vehicle. The Service Manager Corey and the Sales Manager quickly worked together to have the issued repaired at no cost to me. I recently had an issue with the vehicle and not only are they rectifying the situation, they are doing it with such class. I have never been treated so well and never experienced a dealership let alone a service department with such big hearts. There is no way I could ever say thank you enough however, I thought this would be a good start. Thank you for everything. If you are thinking of purchasing, do not be foolish enough to go anywhere but ZT Motors.

Love these guys!! Traded in a XSPX Tacoma for a Ford Raptor the salesperson Stacy at Mercedes made it quick and easy, they honored their original trade in value of my truck everything went off without a hiccup. Can not say enough good things about this company. After having the Ford for a week I realized I left my 30 years worth of duck/goose bands hanging on the rear view mirror. Stopped in and talked to Chris at Toyota, after 15 minutes he tracked them down and they are now hanging in my new truck!! May seem trivial to some but they have two lifetime customers now!! THANK YOU!!!!

I Love my new car. Patrick was so helpful and made it easy. Now, their future help with my car will come later but I have this feeling they are going to take care of my car and me. I'm excited to drive such a quality piece of beauty.
