Mercedes introduced the new ML 500 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY today.  An efficient SUV may not sound like the most exciting news, but if you’re not going to go all the way with the AMG version, this is the ML you want to own.

This model offers a turbocharged 4.7-liter V8 engine that produces 408 PS and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque. It is mated to a seven-speed 7G-TRONIC PLUS transmission which enables the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.6 seconds, before hitting its electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

This EU5 engine has a combined fuel economy of 11 liter per 100 km and a CO2 emissions level of 258 g/km.

The 2013 Mercedes ML500’s price starts at €75,029.50 (including VAT). You’ll be able to order yours starting from 22 June. The new ML500 will arrive in dealerships this fall.
