Mercedes-Benz has recently revealed the all-new ML500 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY, the most powerful version of the German SUV except for the AMG variant.
Even if the new generation of the Mercedes-Benz ML-Class has been officially presented to the public earlier this year, the German based automaker has thought that time has come for the lineup to get a new version in the shape of the ML500 4MATIC BlueEfficiency, which is actually the most powerful version of the vehicle, except for the AMG variant. According to the car manufacturer, the Mercedes-Benz ML500 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY has a starting price of 63,050 euros, excluding tax, in its local auto market, which isn’t what you may call “cheap” considering the current financial situation in Europe.
The 2013 Mercedes-Benz ML500 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY is powered by a 4.7 liter twin-turbo V8 engine, which is developing a total output of 408 PS at 5,000 – 5,750 rpm and it has a peak torque of 600 Nm (442 lb-ft), available between 1,600 and 4,750 rpm. All this power is being sent to the permanent all-wheel drive system through a 7G Tronic Plus transmission, which is allowing the luxurious crossover to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.6 seconds, before reaching an electronically limited top speed o 250 km/h (155 mph). The average fuel consumption in the ML500 is 11 liters / 100 km (24.6 mpg UK) and the model is emitting around 260 g/km of CO2.
