2012 model year changes

The Mercedes-Benz M-Class SUV has been completely redesigned for 2012. Although the new version has about the same overall size and proportions as last year's model, it has revamped powertrains, including all-new V6 engines, that are smoother, strong and more efficient. The new M-Class also comes with expanded active and passive safety features, all-new electromechanical steering; a new active damping system, a more finely detailed interior and improved isolation of noise and vibration. Also joining the lineup later in the model year is an all-new version of the ML63 AMG high-performance version.

Special features for 2012

The 2012 Mercedes-Benz M-Class is one of the most refined, yet safest and most comfortable luxury SUVs available. It's also surprisingly fuel-efficient--especially in ML350 BlueTEC diesel guise. The M-Class's completely redesigned interior has much-improved materials and detailing compared to the previous version, and it's now one of the most lavish cabins in its class. An off-road package, which will allow several different modes for different types of trail driving (or snow), will be available either late in the model year or next year will allow a ground clearance of up to 11.2 inches and a water-fording depth of 23.6 inches.
