2013 Mercedes-Benz ML350 Blue TEC news, pictures, specifications, and information
3.0L BlueTEC turbodiesel V-6 engine
BlueTEC clean diesel technology is the state of the art, wîth certified ultralow emissions nationwide. The 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 in the 2013 ML350 BlueTEC delivers 240 hp, a massive 455 lb-ft of torque, and acceleration as quick as its gasoline counterpart. Mercedes-Benz, pioneer of the original diesel car, has reinvented it without the noise, odor and emissions of old. By injecting a solution called AdBlue® into the exhaust, BlueTEC reduces smog-causing NOx to harmless nitrogen and water vapor. And wîth better highway mpg than some 4-cylinders and hybrids, if offers a cruising range of over 600 miles.

7-speed automatic transmission
The 's first 7-speed automatic has been made even smoother, more responsive and more efficient. A wide range of closely spaced gear ratios delivers the ideal response in virtually every driving situation, for relaxed cruising, quick acceleration, and thanks to two overdrive ratios, better highway fuel efficiency. Adaptive logic monitors your driving style and adjusts its shift points to match, while standard paddle shifters offer manual-style enjoyment anytime you want it.

4MATIC all-wheel drive
In any season or road condition, 4MATIC™ all-wheel drive adds to your confidence and control. Always engaged and optimizing torque to every wheel, 4MATIC integrates wîth our standard Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) for maximum effectiveness in corners and slippery conditions. It also incorporates our 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS), which monitors for the first sign of wheel slip and responds to ensure that torque is always sent to the wheels wîth the best grip -- even if that's only one wheel.

4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS)
For optimum traction, even in slippery conditions, 4MATIC all-wheel drive incorporates our advanced 4-wheel Electronic Traction System. 4-ETS can help get you going even if three wheels lose their grip. Sensors at each wheel monitor traction based on wheel speeds. If one or more wheels start to slip, 4-ETS individually brakes the slipping wheels to maintain the flow of torque to the wheels wîth grip. Even if only one wheel has grip, 4-ETS can help get you going and stay in control.

AGILITY CONTROL suspension
Engineered for an ideal mix of refinement and responsiveness, AGILITY CONTROL automatically adjusts the individual shock absorbers based on the road surface and the driver's current driving style. Valving inside each shock absorber automatically firms up during stronger body motions for sharper handling feedback and stability, and reduces the damping rates during gentler motions for a smoother, more composed ride.

Vital Stats
Engine : 3.0 L., 6-cylinder
Power: 240 hp
Torque: 455 ft-lbs

7-speed Automatic
Adaptive braking technology
Powerful 4-wheel disc brakes feature a number of advances. If you lift off the accelerator quickly, Predictive Brake Priming sets the pads closer to the discs for more immediate response when you apply the brakes. In the rain, Automatic Brake Drying periodically applies the brakes just enough to sweep water build-up from the discs. During uphill starts, Hill-Start Assist helps prevent unwanted rollback. And a HOLD feature can make long red lights or stopped traffic a little easier.


Trailer Stability Assist
A trailer in tow can adversely affect the driving dynamics of a vehicle. That's why the M-Class is equipped standard wîth Trailer Stability Assist. The sensors for the Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) monitor for trailer sway, or oscillations caused by the trailer's movement. The system then intervenes by using the front brakes of your Mercedes to help stabilize the vehicle and trailer. Once the system is satisfied that the situation is under control, braking intervention is ceased.

19-inch twin 5-spoke wheels
The standard 19-inch alloy wheels feature five twin spokes and a luminous silver finish. They're fitted wîth beefy 255/50R19 all-season tires for an optimal year-round balance of surefooted handling and a quiet ride.

LED Daytime Running Lamps
Bright white LED Daytime Running Lamps help increase the visibility of your vehicle to oncoming traffic by illuminating front lights whenever the car is switched on. With long life and low energy consumption, the light-emitting diode (LED) lamps also add a distinctive high-tech styling touch.

LED taillamps
LED taillamps feature a stylish fiber-optic effect for a distinctive nighttime appearance. Long-lasting, attention-getting LEDs are also employed for the rear turn signals and red rear foglamp.

COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST
At speeds above 20 mph, this new system's radar-based technology alerts the driver if they're approaching a vehicle ahead at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. It can also detect stationary objects when driving at speeds up to 40 mph. Its Adaptive Brake Assist automatically provides the ideal level of braking as soon as the driver steps on the brake pedal. And if deemed necessary, the system can also activate PRE-SAFE®. Along wîth helping to prevent or reduce the severity of a collision, the system´s engagement of the brake lamps can help to alert the drivers behind your M-Class earlier as well.

Premium leather multifunction §teering wheel
Wrapped in supple Premium leather, the M-Class §teering wheel includes tilt and telescopic adjustment. For fingertip access to some of the vehicle functions you use most often, convenient buttons on the §teering wheel let you control the audio volume and selection, send and end calls on your Bluetooth-enabled phone, and scroll through the features of the illustrated color multifunction display in the instrument cluster.


Dual-zone climate control w/ dust and charcoal filters
Separate left and right temperature controls allow the driver and front passenger to enjoy personalized comfort. In addition to fully automatic or manual control of blower speed and airflow distribution, the system includes both a dust/pollen filter plus an charcoal filter that helps remove odors from the cabin air.
