In North America where the ML is most popular, Mercedes-Benz will offer at the beginning only two models: the ML350 powered by a 3.5-liter V6 delivering 306 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque; the second model will be the ML350 Bluetec diesel, powered by a new 3.0-liter diesel V6 engine delivering 258 hp and 457 lb-ft. Both models will feature four-wheel drive.

This model is expected to be the most fuel-efficient as it will deliver a fuel consumption of 39 mpg on the highway. The ML350 BLuetec diesel will deliver 35 mpg on highway. Regarding the performances, the ML350 Bluetec diesel can sprint from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 7.4 seconds and has a top speed of 139 mph or 223 km/h.

The ML350 will be powered by a V6 petrol engine and is a little bit slower. It will sprint from 0 to 60 mph (96km/h) in 7.6 seconds but has a higher top speed, electronically limited to 146 mph or 234 km/h. Other improvements for the 2012 Mercedes-Benz M-Class is the arrival of the new On&Offroad package, which provides six transmission modes in order to match the car’s driving conditions.
