Despite a downturn in the SUV market in the last few months, ML sales have actually been up year over year. This vehicle is a great balance of SUV capablilty with a reasonable size and luxury. The 2009 will just improve on an already popular vehicle.

Release date and final pricing for the 09′s is not yet available but I will let you know when it is.
