I cannot comment on pricing - I strongly suggest you call/quote with a 2nd Mercedes dealer for a competitive quote - competition between dealers is a good thing

Just for comparison, here in SoCal, I was quoted a MSRP $62,700 2015 ML350 4MATIC for $54,000 before TTL. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Forget what the $ discount is. % discount is what counts. I got 11% off last Dec. My guess is that now s/b closer to 15%.

I went in yesterday and they wouldn't even give me a 10%.
They said they weren't in a hurry to take them off their lots because there is a high demand for the ML right now.

I shopped around 7 dealers in SoCal and everyone is around 11-13% depending on the MSRP. Hope that helps. Good luck!

I went car shopping with my wife on Friday. We looked at a 2015 ML 350 with a sticker price of $65k. The cash sales price offered was a little over $57k.

So they are willing to sell it for $60K incl MB warranty, tax, title, doc fee, etc?! That sounds like an smokin hot deal.

BTW, I thought the MB warranty was 7/75, unless it changed. And I thought $2700 for that one is super low. IIRC, they cheapest price around fort he 7/75 was $3300 last year after they raised the prices. Are you sure it is an MB warranty and not a 3rd party?

I'm estimating about 10% for tax and fees. Unless he's in a state with no tax.

GLE300d
Has anyone had any luck at getting 15% or more off a 2015 ML?


I'm looking at a 2015 ML250 BlueTEC and the first offer was 11% off MSRP from a Chicago dealer. I've been searching every dealer I can find within 600 miles and not many 2015 BlueTECs left out there.


Financing through MB doesn't seem to make a difference at this time either.

I would build a GLE 350 with what you want see what it comes to. Will you really use the trailer hitch? What about the prewiring? illuminated star? do you need the parking assist? Personally, the standard upgrades in the GLE along with the agility control and nicer interior finishes make it a FAR better option than the ML. You're already spending $60k, is another 2-3k really that much? I LOVEEE my GLE. No regrets except I wish i sprung for the upgraded headlight package. I paid 54$ plus tax title fees for mine. Premium package, gray leather, heated steering wheel, harmon kardon, 4matic. I would definitely spring for the GLE over the ML.

Hey, thanks for your post. I'm getting a GLE 350 next week and I am debating the upgraded headlight package as well. Why do you say you regret not getting it? With your standard headlights, is the daytime running led light run above the headlight or below? It's difficult to see in pictures. Thanks.

Even if you dont tow, the hitch gives better rear end protection and an easy way to transport bikes. Getting the GLE over the ML is a smart move.

I regret not getting the upgraded led headlights because unbeknownst to me. Mb still uses ****ty h7 halogens as their stock bulbs. I picked up some higher end halogens which should be here today but nothing compares to proper LED headlights. You can't see **** with the stock bulbs lol. I may see how much it would be to get the led headlamps installed aftermarket from the dealer.

I want to...problem I'm finding now is that most dealers in my area (NY/NJ/CT) don't have many with that the Lighting Option in stock. Seems to be one of the less popular options.
