2012 Mercedes M-Class Pricing Revealed
The new generation of the Mercedes M-Class will arrive at the European customers starting with this November. The entry-level model costs 46,200 Euros, without taking into account the 19% sales tax in Germany. For this money you get the ML 250 CDI BlueTEC model. For 2k Euros more, you can opt for the ML 350 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY model.
There are also a couple of diesel-powered variants of the SUV, the ML 250 BlueTEC 4 MATIC along with the more powerful ML 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC that are already EU6 compliant, although these requirements will be applicable starting with 2014. There isn’t a V8 engine available upon launch, but in the months to come Mercedes will launch the AMG version of the new ML which will feature a bi-turbo V8 engine.
The first customers who decide to buy the car will benefit from the limited “Edition 1” which consists from an AMG sports package for the outside and a few extra enhancements for the interior cabin.
In the United States, the SUV is going to be available only with the 350 engine, in two gasoline and done diesel variants. The latter will provide 240 hp and a peak torque of 455 lb.-ft for the ML 350 BlueTEC model and has a starting price of $51,365. The ML 350 4MATIC, priced from $49,865, is powered by a V6 engine that churns 302 hp and 273 lb.-ft.
The new generation of the SUV benefits from a revised transmission that has a more advanced torque convertor lock-up clutch that manages to improve fuel efficiency and make the car more responsive and quieter at the same time.
