The 2009 should answer a lot of concerns that people have had with the 2007 and 2008. The most common complaint I heard about the GL was the small side-view mirrors, which has been corrected. I also think the new navigation is going to be great. I have posted about this system previously if you want the details.

Release date and final pricing for the 09’s is not yet available but I will let you know when it is.
