The S63 and CL63 have been updated to include AMG’s newest motor, the direct-injected 5.5 liter twin turbo. Along with the engine stop start system found in the S400 these new models provide more horsepower with increased fuel economy. It will be interesting to see if the addition of the stop start system will eliminate the wonderful rumble the current cars produce at start-up or if everyone around will now hear this every time an AMG fires up to leave a stop light. Another great benefit of going to a twin turbo setup is that it will be much easier to increase power output over the coming years or much sooner for with a quick visit to Kleemann or Renntech. The new motor’s increase to 571hp and 663 lb-ft of torque should keep you entertained for a while but it’s good to know that there is more power available when you’re ready.
My first 2011 Ml350 arrived yesterday and I wanted to see the small changes for myself.
The Lighting Package isn’t new but I rarely see it on the lot. The LED Running Lights are the best indication that this car has it.
Here are the new Side View Mirrors – more like the sedans with the directional LED flashers and smaller mounting area for better visibility.
Here is an image from the Rear View Camera. It has been reprogrammed to have less of a “fish-eye” effect.
No change to the function but the button for the Power Rear Tailgate now makes it clear that the button will also stop the tailgate in any position.
That’s it. The 2011 ML350 is just about identical to the 2010.
