2020 Mercedes- Benz GLS vs. 2020 Ford Explorer

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS is an impressive high-tech three-row luxury SUV. It is surprising how it is able to balance unexpectedly good handling with such an indulgent size. Unlike other big cars that tend to have a compromised exterior, the GLS looks stylish and full of substance. This is why many driving-enthusiast parents would prefer it over anything else.

Another big luxury vehicle that is interesting is the 2020 Ford Explorer. Its attractive design is enough to take it mainstream and a lot of people have come to appreciate the now-familiar Explorer.

Design & Style

Luxury SUVs are slowly filling up the crowd and the GLS is a refreshing sight. The promise of a roomy cabin is wrapped in a bold yet elegant exterior. It is sufficiently chiseled to give it a powerful stance but the interior is graceful, thanks to the luxurious materials it is made of.

Although the cabin has been designed to look like a typical luxury car, the exterior of the Explorer clearly shows its truck heritage. It is bulky but it does have pleasing proportions that are also endearing for some people. The only disappointment is that unlike its hunky size, the designers failed to offer bolder design cues to make it a bit different than its predecessor.

Technology & Safety

The ultra-modern interior of the GLS is a hint that you can expect for it to have first-class infotainment. It took pampering to a new level with the ventilated and massaging seats. Other available luxuries include the new MBUX with its enhanced Artificial Intelligence capabilities. It dutifully updates the system based on the commands and habits of the user. The Me Connect feature is also available to remotely access basic car commands, such as locking/unlocking of doors to starting the vehicle from afar.

The Explorer has standard infotainment that works already well on the basic setup. There is an option to upgrade the system but doing so is not advised. Many people noticed that there seems to be a glitch on the updated setup where it does not pair well with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.


The GLS is rewarding to drive, thanks to its 362-hp engine. Its steering is precise and provides an accurate feel of the road. It is also amazing how GLS can easily adapt to a variety of roads. It does not have a problem being on the road or off of it.

The Explorer is also better to drive now compared to the last version. It is powered by a 300 hp engine that is perfectly adequate. There is a hybrid version for more power but it is not as refined and transitions feel rough and not well-tuned.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS has many capabilities that can only be described as awesome. Many big luxury vehicles are struggling to balance its looks to its character, like the 2020 Ford Explorer, but the GLS will have none of that.
