Well, they had to leave space for the Maybach GLS, no?

Minimal camo, supposedly press pics next Wednesday, but they will probably leak before then

Maybe it's b/c of the thread elsewhere, but I honestly feel that this looks like a Mercedes-ified Highlander.

Compared to that, this looks surprisingly modest in terms of detailing, and a lot more elegant;

I wasn't aware that "elegant", "dated", and "dull" were synonyms. This looks 10 years old. The X7 is gorgeous in person.

Haven't seen one in flesh sio far, but if the facelifted 7 series is anything to judge the detailing by, I'm afraid I will consider it garish and made for Chinese "Bigger, more chrome and more details" taste.

I agree that the GLS does not look super fresh (in fact, just looking at proportions and greenhouse, one might be forgiven to think this is just another reskin), but at least the way less busy detailing is what - at least to me - makes it preferable over an overdone BMW; but in general, I'm rather certain that my choice in this segment would be either a Range Rover (lets face it, none of these will be a Toyota in terms of reliability), or just simply a different segment;

This looks like a Honda. They call this luxury?

Not crazy about the rear end, but overall I think it looks good. Less garish than the X7 (there will always be a market for something a little more "boring") and obviously leaves room for the Maybach variant to bring more bling.
