2011 Mercedes-Benz M-Class

2011 Mercedes-Benz M-Class Review

(3 Stars)  Solid SUV ready for a restyle

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The Mercedes M class is one of the older entries in the midsize luxury SUV segment. What is now a terribly competitive segment was so in 1994 when the M class was introduced. It rode on the same general truck like platform for 12 years. By the time a full refresh came in 2006, the M was showing its age. This combined with the change in the segment over that same time period, specifically that there were so many newer, stronger competitors by 2006. Its refresh was extensive. Moving to unibody construction was a major improvement in many areas. A new, higher quality interior is also noteworthy.

All M class trim levels come with full time four wheel drive, except for the ML350 which is a rear wheel drive only model. The ML350 Bluetec has a 3.0 liter turbo diesel engine which makes 210 Hp. The ML350 is powered by a 268 HP, 3.5 liter V-6. The ML450 is a hybrid design delivering 275 HP. The ML550 ups the ante to 382 HP from its 5.5 liter V-8 engine. The top end engine for the M class is found in the ML63 AMG, at 6.2 liters, this V-8 generates 503 HP. The entire line shares a 7 speed automatic, except for the hybrid.
