The All New Mercedes-Benz M-Class

Mercedes-Benz is focusing heavily on improving fuel efficiency, when preparing to launch their third-generation M-Class SUV in spring 2012. When compared to the second-generation, the forthcoming M-Class promises a 25-percent increase in fuel economy across the range.

You might be thinking,What does that mean for the driver? Taking a look at the most economical SUV of the pack, the ML250 Bluetec 4MATIC powered by a 4-cylinder diesel engine, we can see it gets a wicked 47 mpg, 158 g/km (g/.62 mi)  of CO2, and permanent all-wheel drive. Can you think of another all-wheel drive vehicle that offers 47 miles per gallon that's not a hybrid? Mercedes-Benz of Santa Rosa, can't think of any.

The new M-Class, however, packs more wow-factors than stellar fuel economy alone. Designed to go the distance, its 70-litre ML 250 Bluetec tank provides the freedom of traveling some 720 miles before needing a refill. And, if you really want to take to the open road without having to think about stopping for fuel, drivers have the option of upgrading to a 93-liter tank, which allows the freedom of traveling 930 miles without abandon.

How does the economy and convenience effect power? Not a bit. The new Mercedes-Benz M-Class can still accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 9.0 seconds. New improvements to the chassis and driving system actually enhances the vehicles performance on and off road. Also, for all the motor heads out there, Mercedes-Benz will also be offering two V6-engines at the spring launch: the 258 hp diesel ML350 Bluetec 4MATIC (delivering a zero to 62 mph acceleration time of 7.4 seconds and 41.5 mpg) and 306 hp petrol ML350 4MATIC (delivering a zero to 62 mph acceleration time of 7.6 seconds and 33.2 mpg). All models will get an understated aesthetic update and enhanced ergonomics.
