2012 Mercedes-Benz ML-Class SUV

2012 Mercedes-Benz ML-Class spy photo : 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML-Class

Mercedes-Benz next-gen ML-Class SUV prototypes wearing heavy camouflage. Today, however, our spy photographers have caught an ML-Class prototype.

Judging from these photos, the new ML’s wheelbase seems almost the same, if not a few inches shorter than today’s ML. Whatever the dimensions will be, for efficiency reasons weight is definitely going to be reduced. This chassis will also be shared with the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2011 Dodge Durango.

With most of the camouflage now removed, we can see some of the changes in store. The doors have new sculpting, with two bold character lines visible. We can also see new door mirrors. A large angular grille with at least three chrome cross bars can be seen in our latest spy shots, flanked by revised headlights similar to the units found on the revised CL-Class coupe.
Under the hood we expect a similar range of engines powering today’s car, including the 3.5 V6, 5.5L V8 and the 6.2L V8 for the AMG model. A 3.0L turbo diesel should also continue on in the lineup. We’ve also heard that Mercedes may offer the new ML with a standard or plug-in hybrid right from the start.

This next-gen ML-Class should make it to dealers before the second half of 2011, with a starting price around the same $46,000 for the ML 350 now, ranging on to roughly double that for the premium 6.2-liter AMG model.
