2013 Mercedes-Benz ML 350 Bluetec.jpg

Mercedes-Benz ML 250 Bluetec/Mercedes-Benz ML 350 Bluetec/Mercedes-Benz ML 350/Mercedes-Benz ML 500/Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG (W166). 2011–15 (prod. n/a). 5-door SUV. F/R, F/A, 2143 cm³ diesel (I4 DOHC), 2987 cm³ diesel, 2996, 3498 cm³ petrol (V6 DOHC), 4663, 5461 cm³ (V8 DOHC). ML loses its aggressive looks and gains smaller engines, some with biturbos to get extra power and up fuel economy. Rear legroom increased, and plusher on the inside—but weight went up as well. Uprated seven-speed automatic to aid economy, optional adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning system, and height-adjustable air suspension. More power as well, to cope with additional weight, thanks to direct injection. Lower, with less ground clearance, as Mercedes-Benz continued to acknowledge the urban use of the ML. Rear-wheel-drive models available; four-wheel-drive ones denoted by 4Matic tag. Refined to drive, but not that entertaining, with the exception of AMG model.
