2013 Mercedes-Benz ML550

Since its inception, the M-Class has redefined what an SÚV can be, wîth an ongoing legacy of groundbreaking safety, earth-embracing performance and road-taming confidence.

Power on the forefront
The rewards of performance are yours on demand from any of four advanced Direct Injection engines: a 302-hp V-6, MY13 ML Versatility Highlights, 402-hp biturbo V-8 and 518-hp AMG biturbo V-8 gasoline engines, or the torque-rich yet fuel-stingy 240-hp clean-diesel BlueTEC V-6. Channeled through a paddle-shifted 7-speed automatic transmission, every M-Class engine delivers instant response wîth enduring efficiency.

4.6L biturbo Direct Injection V-8 engine
An efficient 402-hp 4.6-liter V-8 in the ML550 combines numerous advances and twin turbochargers to deliver 12% more power. Its 443 lb-ft torque peak offers 45% more thrust at just 2,000 rpm. New rapid-multispark ignition can fire up to four times per millisecond, while high-pressure Direct Injection can microscopically fine-tune fuel spray in just 0.1 milliseconds, reducing emissions, fuel consumption and noise. A lightweight diecast-alloy block, quicker and more widely variable valve timing, reduced friction, and clever 'on-demand' ancillary components like the alternator further boost efficiency.

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.

Vital Stats
Engine : 4.6 L., 8-cylinder
Power: 402 hp
Torque: 443 ft-lbs

7-speed Automatic

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.

6-mode driving program selector
The new On/Off-Road Package includes a 2-speed transfer case that adds a low range for use during off-road driving. A rotary selector on the console offers six driving programs for various terrain and driving needs: Auto, Sport, Snow, Trailer and two Off-road modes, both of which increase ride height and fording depth. Each mode provides specific settings for the adaptive suspension, automatic level control, Downhill Speed Regulation (DSR) and transfer case. A robust front underride skid plate is also part of the package.

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

ATTENTION ASSIST driver-drowsiness monitor
The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST continuously monitors different parameters of driving behavior, and can automatically alert the driver wîth both visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips.

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.
