ML550 An Enticing Alternative To ML63 AMG Big Brother

Quarter-mile times in the mid-13s and 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds. That’s M3 territory. In a vehicle that’s huge, brawny and frictionally-challenged by all-wheel drive. Any way you look at it, these are awesome performance figures for the 2012 ML550. All the more when you consider that the SUV in question weighs 5,200 pounds. But then, the 4.6 liter twin turbo V8 powering the ML550 is an engineering marvel in itself, giving out 400 horsepower in its current form to give the W166 ML550 its sports car-like performance. At the same time, the ML550 avoids the label of being a gas guzzler. Officially at least. Lest you think that this… Continue Reading »

The wife even pleaded to the courts asking them to give back at least some of her property in order to keep their household thriving. Part of this property is a $202,000 G55 Mercedes SUV. “I am simply asking the courts to return my own property and make reasonable provision for our family’s ongoing maintenance and care,” says Mona Dotcom.

The new M-Class: More miles at less cost

Nice guys finish last eh? Apparently not if you’re driving the new generation Mercedes-Benz M-Class SUV. With its massive build – five doors, increased length and width, less height, heightened arm and leg space – comes more power. That’s right — more power. With a smaller engine, that is. Even without the old V6 3-liter turbo, the new twin-turbo diesel 2100 inline four powerplant sheds the same output at less cost – roughly two-thirds the fuel economy of the old engine. Greater efficiency comes at a price though. Less of a price, actually. It’s price tag is $10,000 less. You get 44 miles per galon, a 1,450km range out of… Continue Reading »
