Pros

Ride quality; towing ability; some off-road ability without sacrificing ride; performance from ML63 AMG; fuel-efficient Bluetec model and upcoming ML450 Hybrid


Model News

A new ML450 Hybrid model joins the lineup for 2010, offering a full hybrid powertrain and fuel economy ratings of 21 mpg city, 24 highway. Otherwise, burl walnut trim is newly available on all models, as is a premium leather steering wheel. Palladium Silver and Steel Gray are new exterior colors.

A new safety feature also debuts in the M-Class; POST-SAFE automatically unlocks the doors and shuts off the engine and fuel system after an accident.


Value Writeup

The Mercedes-Benz M-Class is tough enough for light off-roading and has serious towing ability, yet it's spacious enough for four or five adults and has a smooth ride. With the new ML320 Bluetec diesel and the upcoming ML450 Hybrid, the M-Class lineup will have become much more fuel-efficient without sacrificing performance or capability. But for those who want top performance, the ML63 AMG, with its 503-hp V8 remains the king of the lineup.


Model Highlights

At the beginning of the model year the M-Class is available with four different powertrains. The ML350 offers a 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6, and is available with either 4-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. The rest of the lineup is all-wheel drive only. The ML550 gets a 382-hp, 5.0-liter V8, while the high-performance ML63 AMG adds a 503-hp, 6.3-liter hand-built V8. Across the line power is sent out via a 7-speed automatic transmission.

There's also a diesel model; the 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 in the ML320 Bluetec makes 210 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. It's rated at a frugal 18 mpg city, 24 highway. Thanks to an AdBlue exhaust treatment system, the SUV meets 50-state emissions rules and its generous torque rating makes it an ideal choice for towing.

Coming late in the 2010 model year will be a ML450 Hybrid. With a 3.5-liter V6 engine plus twin electric motors, the hybrid system will generate up to 275 hp and 258 pound-feet altogether. The full hybrid system is capable of using electric power only at low speeds, and the nickel-metal-hydride battery pack is mounted under the cargo floor. The Hybrid model includes a display, accessible through the COMAND display that's included on all M-Class models, indicating the power flow between the battery,

The M-Class is primarily set up for on-road driving, but the full-time 4-wheel drive system employs open differentials and a 4-wheel traction control system can send power to just one corner when the rest of the wheels lose traction. During normal driving, the system distributes power 50/50 front to back. It also includes an Off-Road Mode, which engages a different anti-lock braking mode for loose surfaces, allows slightly more wheel slip, and makes the accelerator pedal less aggressive. The M-Class includes Downhill Speed Regulation and Hill-Start Assist to control speed on steep slopes.

On-road, the M-Class rides quite smoothly and handles reasonably well for such a tough vehicle, thanks to its 4-wheel independent suspension--including a double wishbone front suspension and 4-link rear setup, along with hydraulic-assist rack-and-pinion power steering. A height-adjustable air suspension is standard on the C63 AMG but optional on other models, while an Active Damping System allows four different setting from comfort to sport.

The M-Class is extremely well equipped for occupant protection, including front side airbags, head-protecting window curtain airbags for front and rear occupants, stability control, anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist and a rollover sensor system. It's strictly a 5-passenger vehicle, but it has plenty of space for adults in back, along with adequate cargo space.

All M-Class models include a long list of conveniences such as power seats, cruise control, dual heated mirrors, a sunroof and keyless entry, while ML550 models add heated seats, rain-sensor wipers, running boards, Burl Walnut trim, and upgraded brakes. The C63 AMG brings even larger brakes, the Airmatic suspension, special Nappa leather and aerodynamic bodywork.

The options list is extensive on the M-Class, and includes bi-xenon curve-illuminating headlamps, Parktronic, a power liftgate, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, Bluetooth, Keyless Go, a rear-seat entertainment system and a harman/kardon Logic 7 premium audio system.

Upon deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

MBUSA will their notify owners, and Fiat Chrysler will notify the affected Chrysler owners. Dealers for the respective brands will replace the driver's frontal air bag module, free of charge. A notification schedule has not yet been provided. Mercedes-Benz owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372 and Chrysler owners may contact Fiat Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
