To be fair, luxury SUVs have been imitating these for years now. They are found on real SUVs, like Rovers and Toyota Land Cruisers. You attach your "snorkel" on them and can for water that's really deep. I've noticed them on the GM line of SUVs, from 'Slades to Denalis, Chrysler Durangos, etc.
It is not a pretty vehicle but I have yet to decide if I dislike it. The former version drove like a tractor trailer (I demo'ed it when I was looking fall of 09). Huge interior but rather Holiday Inn'ish appointments. Wonder what the new interior is like? The engine is the same so that means it's powerful but unrefined. I see they've gone to a 7 speed tranny to match MB. I'll test drive it in a few years but goodluck matching an MB slushbox. If there's one thing MB does is make a great transmission.
