2015 Mercedes Benz M-Class
2015 Mercedes Benz M-Class

New for 2015

The Mercedes Benz M-Class receives a number of changes for the 2015 model year. The diesel V-6 is replaced with a diesel I-4, and the ML350 Bluetec in turn becomes the ML250 Bluetec. Up the model line a twin-turbo V-6 replaced the twin-turbo V-8, replacing the ML550 with the ML400. The ML63 AMG continues on unchanged.

Vehicle Overview

The Mercedes Benz M-Class is a midsize SUV that offers variants from the miserly ML250 Bluetec clean diesel to the raucous ML63 AMG that features a twin-turbo V-8. The M-Class fits above the GLK-Class and below the GL-Class in the Mercedes Benz SUV lineup.

What We Think

The 2015 Mercedes Benz M-Class ranges from efficient and capable in the diesel and mainstream gasoline trims to downright defiant when it comes to the way the AMG-tuned model approaches the laws of physics. In a Driven Review of a 2013 ML63 AMG we explained by saying, “Thanks to Mercedes-Benz's Active Curve System, which curbs roll like nobody's business, and the ML63's air suspension with its adaptive dampers, the ML changes direction while remaining so flat and level that you begin to realize that you're having fun on a winding road -- in an SUV.”
We continued, commenting, “While the ML63 probably won't fully convince you, a knowledgeable enthusiast, that you're in a sports car, wicked exhaust burble notwithstanding, it won't cause you or your passengers to evacuate lunch when you're carving back roads.” At $40,000 (or so) more than the other nearest M-Class it ought to perform. Stepping back down into the real world, the M-Class is a capable and thoroughly efficient offering in the segment. The change from turbodiesel V-6 to I-4 has increased fuel efficiency, while the same can be seen with the V-8 to V-6 switch at the top of the non-AMG gasoline engine offerings; the question is whether the drop in power will be too significant. With combined gains of 2-mpg (diesel models) and 4-mpg (biturbo gasoline engines) the gains are welcomed, but we haven’t yet sampled the new smaller powerplants. Knowing Mercedes, the new powerplants won’t be excessive, but they won’t also feel underpowered. Excess goes to the AMG model with the Performance Package.
