Which is the best vehicle for tackling deep snow?

25) Mercedes-Benz GLS (Tie): 8.5 inches (GLS 450 and 550)

2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS 63 AMG

Kicking off this list is the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 and 550. While it’s meant of hauling your family and all their gear, it’s also able to ride over the snow with 8.5 inches of ground clearance. Prices for the GLS-Class start at $70,150 excluding destination charges.

What’s more, the GLS 350 has a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 with 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. If that’s not enough, the GLS 550 packs a 4.7-liter biturbo V8 with 449 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. The high performance Mercedes-AMG G63 has even more power, but suffers on the ground clearance front.
