Default GL450 vs. GL550

I have recently been looking at the Mercedes GL class and I'm seriously interested in the vehicle.

What are the main differences of the GL450 and the GL550?

The GL550 will consume more petrol, unless you will be doing heavy towing or wanting a rapid SUV, the GL450 is enough. I think they both have virtually the same options.
