Optimum pulling power and efficient consumption are the hallmarks which distinguish the diesel engines of the M-Class. They employ an optimised form of common-rail direct injection, which enhances their power delivery even further. In addition, they are fitted as standard with a particulate filter and can deliver maximum power with a minimum noise level.
For maximum 6-cylinder comfort you have a choice of three models: the ML 300 CDI 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY generates 150 kW at a peak torque of 500 Nm and reaches a top speed of 205 km/h. The ML 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC has an output of 155 kW with maximum torque of 540 Nm at 1600-2400 rpm. It uses environmentally friendly BlueTEC® technology, which further reduces exhaust emissions. In a chemical-catalytic reaction it converts harmful nitrogen oxides into nitrogen and water. The ML 350 CDI 4MATIC generates 170 kW, with a peak torque of 540 Nm and a top speed of 220 km/h.
