The current Mercedes-Benz ML has been with us since 2011 and as a result, Mercedes-Benz enthusiast media reports that the M-Class will receive a mid-cycle refresh in the form of a facelift in the fall of 2015.
Several test dummies have been spotted throughout Europe, indicating that Mercedes-Benz is deep in the research and development phase with the updated ML. Not much is known, though the report notes an “extensive makeover,” including a new front grille, revised headlights with new LED daytime runners lifted from the C-Class, as well as new taillights. An updated COMAND system is also expected to surface in the new M-Class.
Model wise, the ML350 will reportedly be replaced by the ML400, similarly to the current SL350 and the replacing SL400. Power will be delivered by a newly revised twin-turbo 3.0L V6 with nearly 330hp and 354 lb-ft of torque, which will take duty before Mercedes introduced their highly-anticipated and revived inline-six.
