Clipboard01 597x232 2012 ML Class Spotted in the Wild
The upcoming Mercedes Benz ML-Class has been spotted testing in the wild, and with it comes a lot of speculation for the SUV. It appears to be a cross between a G-Class and an R-Class, and the company has already said that the ML-Class will be focusing more on efficiency instead of performance.

Due sometime in mid-2011, there are yet to be any concrete details
leaked about the new car. All of the speculation has so far been based
on the previous spy shots of the vehicle. There are even some reports
that hint at an ML-Class powered by a hybrid diesel and electric power
train. Of course, there’s the ML450 Hybrid that’s expected to be
launched sometime in 2011 as well, featuring a gasoline electric hybrid
power source.

The Euro ML models are slated to get 204-horsepower 2.2L
four-cylinder engines, with planned V6 gasoline engines also said to be
in the works. There will also likely be an AMG variant that carries a
5.5L twin-turbo direct-injection V8 that should be good for 570hp at the
very least.

The leading consumer 4×4 in the entire Mercedes-Benz lineup should be
officially unveiled by the time the 2011 Geneva Show comes around in
March. Whether we’ll also see a reported plug-in hybrid version of the
ML450 Hybrid is another question.
