Looks like a suddle enough of an upgrade. Steering wheel being the biggest for me.

I don't know... for some reason I am not a fan of this after market Garmin-style screen they're starting to use. Flush mounted looks just a little cleaner/more elegant to me. The vents look similar to a Porsche Cayenne.

Also, STILL no ECO button from what I can see and that panel seems to be loaded out... gahhhhhhhhh.

I'm not loving it either. Maybe the new screen is bigger and would make the dashboard too big if it was built in. They are probably using google now for navigation like Audi.

Steering wheel from the way the ML was parked - happens to be "turned" upside down.. new dash/screen styling in Mercedes mind lets the center and right side of the dash to be "moved down" and "moved back".. I am not "defending" just stating the direction..

Cayenne vents. Bigger screen. 3 spoke wheel. Refined buttons below screen. Nice

I saw that...my point was that it is a different design than current one. Finally changing that. Also I notice better quality buttons throughout the dash. to be quite honest I was leaning towards getting a RR but will wait and see how this feels and hopefully they even change the front and rear bumpers as currently they are too plain looking, IMO.

Hate the nav..if not built in why not make it collapse away..

Steering wheel hub looks like circa BMW

Audi A6 owners with the sports steering wheel will probably agree that this new wheel looks very very similar.

I don't like the NAV screen. It looks like an after-thought. Next they will be suction cupping it on the windshield.

I'm not a fan of the nav screen, it looks as though they used double sided tape and stuck an iPad to the dash....

2014 ML350 BlueTec.
Thumbs up I like it...

Put my pre-order in already. Will be a bit of a wait until September. Tenorite grey, with the premium package and xenon package.

Did they tell you which engine options the 2015 model year is going to have? My dealer didn't know

I saw that and was hoping to find out if that's just rumour or a fact.

2014 ML350 BlueTec.
I pre-ordered....

The ML350 BlueTec, though the bi-turbo V6 sounded interesting.

Better view of the steering wheel (yes, it's the same wheel in the spy shot) except on the new C Class:

What about led headlights? Benzblogger doesn't say anything about new styling. Could it be just an interior upgrade?

According to benzblogger there won't be a ML350BTC for 2015 as it's going to be replaced with the ML250BTC

September of 2015 you mean, right...?

MY15 ML is virtually the same as MY14, only minor changes (addition of ECO stop/start on gas engines is notable). MY16 is facelift.

Really. Everyone here is expecting the update for 2015 because of reports. Then again, we are not as close to MB as you.

Of course in the USA, MBUSA may pass on the ML250 Bluetec variant and stick with the 350 Bluetec, since Americans may feel that for a big heavy luxury car the 250 is too slow and anemic.
