Mercedes-Benz has announced a series of updates for the M-Class in the United States, for the 2015 model year, where the vehicle is about to become even more interesting.
The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz is currently developing a minor facelift for the popular M-Class but this hasn’t stopped the company into upgrading the same vehicle for the 2015 model year, across the United States. When we say “upgrades” we really don’t mean the whole “baggage” but it is good to know that the model mentioned above will now become available to its future customers with two more engines.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz M-Class has dropped the ML550 as this will be replaced by the new ML400. In this version, a 3.0 liter twin turbo V6 unit will be used, producing a total of 329 HP (245 kW) and 479 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque, connected to a 7-speed automatic transmission. The 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) acceleration takes 6.0 seconds in this version and the model can return 18 / 22 mpg in city / highway. The ML350 BlueTec will be replaced by the ML250, with its 2.1 liter twin turbo four-cylinder diesel burner, producing 200 HP (149 kW) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque. Prices for the ML400 will start from 62,900 USD.
