Mercedes Benz ML
Mercedes Benz ML350 Rent Dubai. There’s much to like about the M-class—the first-rate cabin, modern tech, and towing ability—but those seeking something sporty should keep looking. The base setup is a 302-hp 3.5-liter V-6 with rear-wheel drive for the Sunbelt set; 4MATIC all-wheel drive is optional. Other engines include a 200-hp 2.1-liter turbo-diesel four and a 329-hp, twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6, both with 4MATIC. Don’t expect the M-class to be handy off-road, but it can tackle nasty weather with its 4MATIC all-wheel drive.
If the exterior of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz ML350 pictured here looks nearly identical to the 2014 ML350 it replaces, that’s probably because it is. Comprehensively overhauled for the 2013 model year, the ML’s styling will get updated for next year—when it also adopts the GLE-class nomenclature—but for now the minor change in diesel ML badging is all that’s new outside; it acknowledges the arrival of Benz’s 2.1-liter dual-turbo diesel four under the hood. The same basic diesel engine that provides the Mercedes-Benz E250 sedan and GLK250 crossover with surprising punch and refinement, the 2.1-liter unit is the first four-cylinder oil-burner in decades to find its way into U.S.-market Mercedes passenger vehicles.
Comparisons are inevitable, so let’s get this out of the way right now: Packing 200 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, the diesel in ML350 trim can’t match the 240-hp and 455-lb-ft ratings of the departed ML350’s turbo-diesel V-6. But losing two cylinders has its benefits, namely a reduction in weight. Registering a still-hefty 5041 pounds on the C/D scales, the ML250 nevertheless shaves 162 pounds off the 5203-pound figure of a 2013 ML350 BlueTec 4MATIC we tested for a recent diesel-SUV comparo.
