F/A, 2987 cm³ diesel, 3498 cm³ petrol, 3498 cm³ petrol–electric hybrid (V6 DOHC), 3996 cm³ diesel, 4966, 5461, 6208 cm³ petrol (V8 DOHC). More aggressive-looking second-generation ML, shifting on to unibody structure shared with Mercedes-Benz GL. Drag coefficient down to Cd 0,34. Better passive safety on new platform, but ML’s off-road capabilities became more limited. Far improved quality, addressing W163’s chief concern. Faster and lighter than predecessor and with better stability, though V6 petrol short on low-end torque, according to reports. Lights turned with steering, and height-adjustable air suspension among the new features. However, no third-row seat option in this generation as Mercedes-Benz expected buyers to consider GL and R-Klasse. Facelift in 2008. BlueTec diesels from 2008, and Hybrid from 2009.
