Mercedes-Benz ML: New winter spy shots!

Mercedes-Benz ML

We found new spy shots of the next-generation Mercedes-Benz ML, caught during winter testing. Have a look!

The ML will get unique switchgear and a rotary controller for Mercedes’ Comand infotainment system. Some prototypes have been seen with Mercedes’ night-vision sensor in the windscreen, too.

The core petrol engine will be a twin-turbocharged 4.6-litre V8, producing between 408bhp and 435bhp. A V6 ML will also be available; it’s likely to use the reworked version of Merc’s normally aspirated 3.5-litre unit, with 306bhp, because the ML is arriving a little too early to get the twin-turbocharged version of this engine.

AMG will again release a performance variant, equipped this time with a twin-turbocharged 5.5-litre V8 producing around 520bhp and 516lb ft of torque. That should be enough to beat the ML63 AMG’s 0-62mph time of 5.0sec, while improving on its fuel economy of 17.1mpg and CO2 emissions of 392g/km.
