2012 Mercedes-Benz ML350 – Test Drive Reviews

The 2012 ML350 has been priced and is scheduled for release this fall. Recently automotive journalists were able to test drive it for the first time Montana. Here are a few excerpts:

From Motor Authority:

“Now the third generation is here, and to put it simply, it’s even better. With top notch safety and tech features to complement its rich cabin, it not only performs better but is a safer, more responsible choice and one that might make getting there easier as well as more comfortable—a true luxury good for the 21st century.”

“But by far, our favorite 2012 M-Class model is the ML350 BlueTec. If ‘wafting’ up to speed easily (without downshifts) on the highway, cruising effortlessly near triple digits, and getting gas mileage that won’t place a frown on the faces of your more earth conscious friends are all priorities, you’ll find this model the best fit, too.”

From AutoWeek:

“The sport setting on the M-class chassis does a fantastic job of keeping the vehicle flat through corners and seems to all but eliminate dive under hard braking. At the same time, the ride remains reasonably supple, not losing its smoothness at the expense of body stability.”

“As the latest and greatest of the suburban utility vehicles on the market, the 2012 Mercedes M-class is certainly worth a look. Whether you choose gasoline or diesel is really a matter of personal preference–both perform well in this model.”

From MotorTrend:

“Usually a raft of upgrades to a vehicle engenders a price increase, but not so for the 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML350. Even though it was significantly redesigned for the new model year, the 2012 ML350 still starts at $49,865 (including an $875 destination charge), while the ML350 BlueTec diesel starts at $51,365.”

2012 Mercedes-Benz ML350 Pricing Announced!

The pricing for the 2012 M-Class has been released and there are no changes!

  • 2012 ML350 4Matic Base MSRP: $48,990
  • 2012 ML350 Bluetec Base MSRP: $50,490

When you account for the new standard features this is actually a 3.2% price/value improvement! You can see the option pacakges and options pricing in my previous post.
