2015 M- Class
Engineered to inspire.
When drivers wished for a versatile, capable vehicle
with all the virtues of a Mercedes-Benz, the original
M-Class became more than just the first SUV of its
kind. It created an ever-advancing blueprint for other
SUVs to follow, year after year. And with its athletic
performance, acclaimed safety and attentive luxury,
the M‑ Class inspires its own driver, day after day.
ML 250 BlueTEC. A new twin-turbo
4 ‑cylinder clean diesel1 motivates the
most efficient M‑Class. Its versatile
AGILITY CONTROL® suspension and
4matic® all-wheel drive deliver driving
pleasure on any road, in any season.
ML 400. A new biturbo V‑6 combines
the acceleration of a V‑8 without the
appetite for fuel. AMG styling and 19"
wheels highlight its performance. Its
cabin puts the spotlight on comfort,
with a lengthy list of standard luxuries.
ML 350. A Direct Injection gasoline
V‑6 matches smooth power with the
stylish moves of standard 19" wheels.
Choose from sporty rear-wheel drive
or nimble 4matic all‑wheel drive. An
expanded array of options enhances
its capabilities both on‑road and off.2
ML 63 AMG. A handcrafted 518‑hp
biturbo V‑8 and hand-finished cabin
create a well-mannered SUV that’s
anything but mild-mannered. Earthtrembling torque is matched with a
corner-taming AIRMATIC® suspension
ML 350 shown on cover with optional Steel Grey metallic paint, and
Driver Assistance, Lighting and Premium Packages. ML 400 shown
above with Polar White paint, and optional brushed aluminum running
boards, Panorama roof, PARKTRONIC, and Driver Assistance and
Lighting Packages. Please see endnotes at back of brochure.
Shaped by what
goes into it.

Lighting Package. Please see endnotes at back of brochure.
The M‑Class is designed to be a perfect fit — for you, and for how
you enjoy life. The sleek body wraps taut muscle around a flexible
cabin. LED lighting and brilliant chrome accentuate its precision.
And each of its crisp lines is honed in the wind tunnel, to refine
not just how it looks from any angle, but how it feels on any road.
That “solid as a bank vault” feeling you experience in an
M‑Class is a legendary Mercedes-Benz attribute, but it’s no
legend. Its substantial feel comes from actual substance.
A rigid uni-body, fully independent suspension and highly
refined aerodynamics all work in concert to make the ride
smoother, the handling more precise, and the cabin quieter.
Extensive development in virtual and actual wind tunnels
helps to cut drag and fuel consumption. It also enhances
stability, improving tire adhesion and mitigating the effects of
crosswinds on the highway. Its aerodynamic advances even
help the driver see better, with such details as side mirrors
designed to help keep road spray off the windows. Of course,
functionality isn’t nearly as enjoyable without a corresponding
degree of flair. So while the LED Daytime Running Lamps and
taillamps attract attention better, they capture admiring eyes
equally well. The stylish aluminum roof rails accommodate a
variety of accessory racks and containers. A chrome sill
plate helps protect the rear bumper when the power liftgate
is open for loading. And every M‑Class takes to the road on
a substantial set of wheels — standard 18", 19" or 20" alloys,
with options up to 21", depending on model. The optional
Exterior Sport Package — standard on the ML 400 — wraps
athletic AMG® wheels in aggressive AMG body styling. The
ML 63 AMG has its own unique AMG wheels and bodywork.

upholstery, Burl Walnut wood trim, harman/
kardon sound system, multicolor ambient
lighting, PARKTRONIC, ventilated front
seats, and Premium Package.
Advanced by tradition.
Look back over the history of motoring, and you’ll see MercedesBenz engineers continually redefining the future. It’s a neverending
tradition to make dramatically new ideas feel immediately familiar — intuitive for you to use, and easy to enjoy. It’s how features that you
never imagined become must-haves you never want to be without.
Whether you’re venturing somewhere you’ve never explored,
or relaxing along a favorite route, driving an M‑Class offers
rewards no other SUV brings together. That’s because no
automaker has a richer history of wrapping groundbreaking
innovation in time-honored craftsmanship. It’s what turns
the instant sensations you feel in an M‑Class into enduring
satisfaction. It starts with the premium materials and fine
tailoring that greet your eyes and hands. And it continues
along every drive, with the ergonomic design of its controls,
and the way even the most advanced systems connect with
your natural logic. You might call it the peaceful coexistence
of technology and timelessless. It’s evident in the way LEDs
and fiber-optics can encircle the cabin in a soothing glow.
Or how the front seats can comfort you with added warmth,
active cooling, or a massage for your back. You can even
access the Internet from the dash,3 to help make sure your
destination is as enjoyable as going there. Mercedes-Benz
employs 1,300 state-of-the-art robots in the manufacture
of each M‑Class. Not one of them is assigned to polish its
wood trim or fit the upholstery to its seats. Those, simply
put, require a human touch. Regardless of how advanced,
imaginative or futuristic an automobile may become, how it
makes you feel will still matter. Even if you never experience
time travel, an M‑Class can assure you of time well spent.
How far do you dream of going?
If you want to go farther — in life, or in your travels — experience reveals a few tips: Get a head
start. And make fewer stops. Since pioneering the diesel automobile in 1936, Mercedes-Benz
engineers haven’t rested. Even after inventing BlueTEC, the world’s cleanest diesel passenger
vehicles,1 they keep reinventing. Their latest revelation is the new ML 250 BlueTEC. It’s the most
fuel-efficient4 M‑Class yet. And while you can take it about 700 miles without stopping to refuel,
driving it will reward you with the best tip of all: Going farther is better when you enjoy the ride.

Unseasonably calm,
unshakably confident.
An SUV that’s rugged isn’t so unusual. But how about
one that’s also nimble, or even fun? The M‑Class was
the first of its kind to feature a 4‑wheel independent
suspension — along with many other Mercedes-Benz
handling hallmarks, like a tight turning circle. It also
made a clever new use of technology first pioneered
for antilock brakes: The same sensors can also detect
wheelspin during acceleration. The breakthrough was
more than just groundbreaking. It’s ground-gripping
as well — enhancing control on wet roads, takeoffs in
loose gravel, and performance in dry corners. In any
season of the year, you’ll feel in touch with the road.
And wherever you drive, you’ll be on top of the world.
Efficiency expert. A new generation of
clean diesel powerplant lets the ML 250
BlueTEC® go even farther on a gallon of
fuel.4 Two turbochargers give the 2.1‑liter
inline-4 more torque than some V‑8s.
A fast-acting turbo boosts torque at low
rpm, with a larger, more powerful unit
adding power as revs increase. And all
369 lb ‑ft of its torque is on tap at just
1,600 rpm, for strong response off the
line and around town. With its ultralow
emissions, it’s certified in all 50 states.1
With up to 700 miles of highway driving
range per tankful, you can drive across
several of them without a fuel stop.
Power players. A pair of gasoline V‑6s
use advanced technology to thrust you
forward more rapidly. Both the 302‑hp
ML 350 and the new 329‑hp ML 400 are
showcases of quick-thinking technology
that turns less fuel into more torque with
lower emissions. High-pressure Direct
Injection and a rapid-multispark ignition
system can both precisely self-tune in a
millisecond, to ignite the finely atomized
fuel as many as four times per cycle. The
ML 400’s two turbos — one for each bank
of cylinders — spool quickly and rapidly
to reach high rpm and boost pressure
with virtually no lag. The result is torque
output of 354 lb‑ft from just 1,600 rpm,
and 0–60 mph in a mere 6.5 seconds.5
Fingertip 7‑speed. The sporty, smooth
and efficient automatic transmission
features an intuitive electronic selector
and shift paddles — all fingertip-close to
the steering wheel. The paddles give you
instant manual control on demand.
Year-round confidence. Optional on
the ML 350 and standard on all other
models is the surefooted performance
of 4matic® all- wheel drive. Its 4‑wheel
Electronic Traction System (4‑ETS®) can
automatically send the engine’s torque
to the wheels that have the best grip — whether that’s all four wheels, two of
them, or even just one. And with light
weight, quick response and excellent
agility, 4matic enhances handling in any
season, from the depths of winter to the
delights of a back road in summer.6 For
the ML 350, standard rear-wheel drive
offers even higher efficiency with the
handling balance of a sporty sedan.
Greener red lights. Waiting at a light or
for traffic to get going? ECO Start/Stop
(not available on the ML 350 models) can
automatically switch off the engine, to
help save fuel and emissions. As soon as
you’re ready to go, the engine restarts
when you lift your foot from the brake,
or the instant you press the accelerator.
Flexible muscle. The versatile 4 ‑wheel
multilink suspension combines sedanlike
comfort and handling with SUV flexibility.
Innovative AGILITY CONTROL® reads the
road surface via the vertical movement
of each shock absorber. It can instantly
adjust their firmness for more precise
control in sharp corners, while keeping
the ride quality refined on rough roads.
Flatter cornering. The available ACTIVE
CURVE SYSTEM’s variable stabilizers
automatically tighten during cornering
maneuvers, to minimize body lean. In
gentle curves and in straight-line travel,
they relax, to optimize ride comfort. The
Sport mode of the adaptive suspension
sharpens their response even further.7
Fortified exploring. A suite of options
collaborate to elevate the capabilities of
the M‑Class in off-road adventures, while
enhancing on-road performance, too. The
optional On/Off‑Road Package’s rotary
selector lets you choose any of six drive
programs for various terrains and driving
conditions: Auto, Sport, Snow, Trailer,
and two Off-road modes — both of which
increase ride height and fording depth.2
Each mode provides specific settings for
the AIRMATIC® adaptive air suspension,
automatic level control, and the 2‑speed
transfer case. Downhill Speed Regulation
(DSR), when activated, can automatically
maintain a preset crawl speed with your
feet off the pedals, helping make steep
descents more consistent and allowing
you to focus on steering the vehicle.7
Handcrafted horsepower.
For 47 years, AMG has been creating championship racecars
and thoroughbreds for the street. Every trophy earned, and
each lesson learned, has shared the same starting line: an
engine crafted by the hands of its own master. “One man, one
engine” is more than a guiding philosophy — it’s a pedigree of
performance that’s evident throughout the vehicle. And it’s
a promise made during the rigors of competition that every
Mercedes-AMG fulfills even in the routine of a daily commute.
ML 63 AMG. Crafted by the hands of its own
master engine builder, the ML 63’s biturbo
V-8 pours out 518 hp. Its torrential 516 lb‑ ft
of torque is expertly distributed by standard
AMG Performance 4matic® all-wheel drive with
an exclusive 40:60 front/rear torque split. The
setup optimizes handling dynamics — especially
when cornering on dry pavement — and can
launch the SUV to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds.5
Epic. Four AMG tailpipes emit a symphony of
performance. Yet an ECO Start/Stop system
is one of many measures to elevate efficiency
and lower emissions in everyday driving.
Expressive. The 7‑speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT®
transmission includes aluminum shift paddles
and three driver-selectable programs. In the
Sport mode, expertly rev-matched downshifts
are announced with a snarl of the exhaust.
Extreme. Standard 20" AMG® 5‑ spoke wheels
reveal an enticing glimpse of the massive AMG
brake hardware. Even more aggressive 21"
AMG twin 5‑spoke wheels are optional in your
choice of classic Silver or dramatic new Matte
Black. The self-leveling, adaptive AIRMATIC®
suspension is AMG-calibrated and teamed with
the corner-taming ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM.

21" AMG twin 5‑spoke wheels in Black, Panorama roof, and Driver
Assistance Package. Please see endnotes at back of brochure.
How far ahead can you prepare?
The M‑Class helps protect you with technology that watches the road and you. It surrounds you in a reinforced
body. And it backs you with intensive research and exhaustive testing. Over the decades, Mercedes-Benz safety
engineers have pioneered the crumple zone, antilock brakes and stability control. They’ve introduced countless
safety firsts to SUVs, from side-impact air bags to the newest collision-avoidance breakthroughs. They’ve made
sure the M‑Class earns top ratings in industry testing. All to be ready for a moment they hope never happens.
ML 350 shown with optional Palladium Silver metallic
paint, 4matic all-wheel drive, and KEYLESS‑GO.
Being first in safety matters most when every second matters more.
The independent agencies that perform their own crash-testing are highly respected for their unbiased
assessment, and their continually advancing criteria and methods. In the latest tests, the M‑Class earned
their highest acclaim: 5 stars overall from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration,8 and one of
the very first “Top Safety Pick+” ratings for a luxury SUV from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.9
In the M‑Class, “safety first” means it’s engineered to be an integrated system of safety innovations — all
helping make the most of the precious seconds it takes to avoid a collision, or survive the unavoidable.

Radar-based technology that watches the road ahead.
When driving at speeds above 4 mph, standard COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST employs radar
to continuously scan for slower or stopped vehicles ahead. If it senses that a collision is likely, it
audibly alerts you to start braking. The instant you do, its Adaptive Brake Assist can automatically
increase braking to the ideal level to avoid a collision, or reduce its severity.10 Optional DISTRONIC
PLUS® takes this a step further. In everyday driving, its adaptive cruise control feature can pace
your speed to the flow of traffic, even if the car ahead slows to a stop. If it detects an impending
collision, its pioneering PRE‑SAFE® Brake springs into action. In addition to alerting the driver,
PRE‑SAFE Brake can also apply the brakes autonomously to help prevent or mitigate a collision.11
COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST takes action: 1. Radar senses a slower-moving vehicle ahead.
2. An audible tone and lighted
icon alert the driver to brake.
3. As soon as the driver presses the brake pedal,
Adaptive Brake Assist adjusts the brake force.
Visionary driving assists to help you see and be seen.
Virtual vision to your sides. When the available
Blind Spot Assist12 senses a vehicle on either
side of your M ‑Class, it illuminates an icon in the
appropriate mirror, to alert you. If you signal for
a lane change while a vehicle is detected, the icon
flashes and a warning tone sounds. The system is
also available with active technology, which can
selectively brake individual wheels to help guide
you back into your own lane automatically.13
4. If the driver is not braking hard enough to avoid a
collision, the system increases the braking force.
Please see endnotes at back of brochure.
A watchful eye if it’s time for a rest. ATTENTION
ASSIST® is a Mercedes-Benz innovation that can
alert you if it detects signs of drowsiness on long
drives. Starting in the first minutes of a drive,
the system measures more than 70 variables, to
establish a pattern and determine the warning
thresholds. By continually monitoring a variety
of driving behaviors along your trip, ATTENTION
ASSIST can offer a warning tone and encourage
taking a break if it senses you’re getting drowsy.14
Brighter by day, and by night. The front Daytime
Running Lamps, rear turn signals and fiber-optic
taillamps all feature LED technology. With the
Lighting Package,12 Bi‑Xenon headlamps generate
light that more closely resembles natural daylight.
The package includes Active Curve Illumination
and Adaptive Highbeam Assist — two systems that
continuously vary the beams to maximize their
illumination into corners and down straightaways,
without creating glare for oncoming drivers.
5. If the vehicle ahead starts to pull away, brake force
is reduced, but not below the driver’s pedal input.
Multilane multitasker. Available Lane Keeping
Assist12 uses a camera to monitor the vehicle’s
position in relation to visible lane markings. If you
start to drift out of your lane without signaling,
it can alert you by vibrating the steering wheel.
It’s also offered with advanced active technology
that can gently apply the brakes to individual
wheels, to help draw the vehicle back into its
original lane if you disregard the alerts.14
6. If the system senses a collision cannot be avoided,
it can tighten the front seat belts in preparation.
How far will it go to please you?
Thoughtful engineering and careful craftsmanship aren’t just how the M‑Class
feels so rewarding on the inside. They’re also why it satisfies you deep inside.
Beneath the hand- fitted upholstery of its orthopedically designed front seats,
it offers countless ways to make its comforts both immediate and enduring. In
addition to three stages of soothing heat, you can have three levels of cooling
ventilation. Inflatable chambers let you fine-tune the support of your shoulders,
back and thighs. And four massage programs can revitalize you and relax you
on any drive. Because no matter how far you go, your M‑ Class goes further.
ML 400 shown with optional designo Auburn Brown/Black
Exclusive Nappa leather, Open‑pore Brown Ash wood trim,
ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM, Bang & Olufsen premium sound
system, PARKTRONIC, and multicontour and ventilated
front seats. Please see endnotes at back of brochure.
Better living on the leading edge.
Technology and humanity discover harmony in the M‑Class cabin. You can sync
2,000 songs to your dash, and immerse yourself 1,200 watts deep in the music.
The voice control can learn how you speak. You can see 360° of what’s nearby,
or keep a traffic jam far away. It’s all quite advanced. But it quickly feels familiar.
Eyes on the road, hands on the wheel. The multifunction
steering wheel and console-mounted central controller unify
all your options in entertainment, navigation, information and
personalized vehicle settings. Crisp gauges and two color
screens — a standard 7" central display plus an illustrated
multifunction readout within the gauge cluster — are all at the
same height and focal distance. Standard Bluetooth lets you
make hands-free calls or stream digital music wirelessly.15
Music fills the air, from almost anywhere. The standard

your own music on CD or via USB. The Premium Package12
can expand your playlist to near‑infinity: A Media Interface
integrates your iPod® or MP3 device with the audio displays
and controls.16 Play your digital music files from an SD card,
or store them on the 10GB Music Register. And nationwide
SiriusXM Radio comes with a 6‑month All Access plan trial,
so you can also listen on your smartphone and tablet.17 Add
the Mercedes-Benz Apps Package3 of mbrace® and you can
enjoy global Internet radio via TuneIn.® Also available are two

will appreciate the Bang & Olufsen® BeoSound™ system — now
available on every M‑Class.18 It puts out 1,200 total watts,
via 14 active speakers including two Acoustic Lens tweeters.
Explore the city, or search the Internet. The Premium
Package also brings the guidance of COMAND® navigation,19
featuring a fast 80GB hard drive and 3D maps with building
profiles. Map updates are provided at no charge for three
years. Its advanced voice control system can learn how
you speak in your everyday voice. And it comes with three
years of SiriusXM Traffic and Weather, including dynamic
re‑routing around traffic jams.17 The Cloud‑based apps of
mbrace deliver the Internet directly to your dash — so you
can easily search destinations from your car, computer or
smartphone, and be on your way with just a few clicks.3
Virtual doorman, or an onboard valet. Innovative options —
all standard on the ML 63 AMG — help make your every move
a smooth one. KEYLESS‑GO® lets you unlock and drive your
M‑Class without taking the key from your pocket or purse.12
In low-speed maneuvers, PARKTRONIC can sense obstacles
near your front and rear bumpers, and let you know via
audiovisual indicators in the cabin. It’s paired with Active
Parking Assist, which sizes up open parallel parking spaces
as you drive by. Choose a spot, and it can expertly back you
in hands-free — like a virtual valet. The Premium Package also
includes power-folding side mirrors, as well as a rearview
camera20 with active on-screen steering guidelines. Or opt
for the Surround View System,20 which uses four cameras to
compose a single 360° birdseye view of what’s around you.
Power to the people. Three 12‑volt sockets in
the cabin and cargo area let you charge your
devices on the go. An available household style 115 ‑volt outlet12 in the rear seating area
lets you plug in a game console or laptop.
Climate - controlled cupholders.
Among the appealing features in the
new Convenience Package is a pair
of heated and cooled cupholders
in the front console. Just the touch
of a button can help keep your hot
drink warmer, or your cold drink
cooler. Red or blue LED illumination
of the cupholders lets you know
whether they’re heating or cooling.
Degrees of easiness.
The M‑Class console brings a far-reaching array
of features to your fingertips. Inituitive controls
make its available innovations easy to enjoy — from entertainment and navigation, to a 6- mode
drive selector, to heated and cooled cupholders.
Easy lifting. The adaptive AIRMATIC® suspension, included
wiith the ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM or On/Off-Road Package,7
lets you raise the ride height by up to 3.6" at the touch of a
button. A rotary knob lets you select from four ride -height
settings: The “on -road” mode automatically lowers the
vehicle by 0.6" at higher speeds. Three off-road settings 6 let
you progressively raise the ride height in 1.2" increments.
Control hub. The COMAND®
system’s central controller puts
your entertainment, navigation,
seating options and a variety of
vehicle settings within easy reach.
Its illustrated menus and 7" in‑dash
screen make them easy for your
mind to grasp. The turn- and-click
knob and four hard keys — including
a programmable “favorite” button — help make the cockpit innovations
of the M ‑Class quickly feel familiar.
Six modes, for on and off roads. The On/Off Road Package’s rotary drive selector offers you six
programs that preselect the settings for the adaptive
suspension, drivetrain, Downhill Speed Regulation
(DSR) and dual - range transfer case. From sporty
handling to snowy roads, and from trailer-towing to
trailblazing, there’s a mode to fit your mood.
A sensation for all your senses.
Your enjoyment of the M‑Class starts with how richly it’s finished, and only
grows more satisfying from there. From a soothing massage to a moonlit
drive, it turns innovation into invigoration, and refinement into refreshment.
Embracing support, enduring enjoyment. The standard
heated, 8- way power front seats are designed for lasting
comfort on long rides or over many years of use. The driver
seat includes 4-way lumbar support, while the Premium
Package12 adds 3‑position memory for the seat, the power
steering column — also included in the package — and the
power-folding side mirrors. The available ventilated front
seats12 help keep you cooler and drier in warm weather.
Optional multicontour front seats let you fine -tune their
lumbar, shoulder and thigh supports. They also offer four
massage programs and multi-adjustable head restraints.
Luxury in the air, a refined atmosphere. The dual -zone
automatic climate control filters dust, pollen and airborne
odors. An available 3 ‑zone system offers the rear cabin its
own microclimate. The optional heated rear seats include
rear-cabin switches for the climate control’s airflow and
AUTO mode. A heated steering wheel can quickly take the
chill from your hands on a cool morning, or you can opt for
a hand-finished wood/leather wheel. Supple, hand-stitched
Nappa leather adorns every M‑Class steering wheel.
Extensive comfort, expansive capacity. The 60/40‑split
rear seats recline to 10 positions, or fold down to create
carpeted space for up to 80.3 cu ft of cargo.21 Standard
luxuries include a power liftgate, chrome load sill protector,
parcel net, chrome tie- downs, and retractable cargo cover.
A sunny breeze, or a blanket or stars. A standard power
sunroof tilts up for ventilation or slides open. The optional
Panorama roof presents a grand skyward view to all five
passengers. Its power front section also tilts and slides.
Both feature heat-rejecting glass and a sliding sunshade.
A warm welcome, a more inviting stay. Available fiberoptic LED ambient lighting12 lets you bathe the cabin in any
of three selectable hues, and includes the welcoming glow
of illuminated front door sills. Other options12 to ease your
entry and exit include rubber-studded brushed aluminum
running boards, and soft-close doors — which draw each
door snug when you bring it to its latch, without slamming.
An artisan’s touch, in a wider palette. The array of cabin
finishes for your M‑Class is as impressive as their quality.
Five hand-finished wood trim options complement a variety
of solid and contrasting upholstery colors — in the practical
luxury of soft MB‑Tex, or several styles of leather.12 The most
exquisite of these is designo Exclusive Nappa leather, with
a linear sew pattern standard on the ML 63 AMG, or as an
option with diamond-pattern stitching on the other models.
A new Interior Sport Package includes deeply contoured
front seats, a sport steering wheel, aluminum pedals, and
a black headliner. Its seats feature DINAMICA microsuede
inserts on the ML 250 BlueTEC and ML 350, or soft Nappa
leather inserts with full-grain leather bolsters on the ML 400.

All Mercedes-Benz mbrace® services operate only where cellular and Global Positioning System satellite signals are available, which are provided
by third parties and not within the control of Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. An mbrace Package trial period is offered on new, Certified Pre-Owned
and pre-owned sales and leases at an authorized Mercedes-Benz dealer. Subscriber Agreement is required for service to be active. Some services

Apps may be introduced and updated at varying dates, and may also require a vehicle software update. Driver is responsible for complying with

2015 EPA estimated fuel economy figures unavailable at time of printing. Please see your dealer. Compare the estimated mpg to the estimated
mpg of other vehicles. You may get different mileage depending on how fast you drive, weather conditions and trip length. Your actual highway
mileage will probably be less than the highway estimate. Driving range based on preliminary estimate of highway mpg and fuel tank capacity.
Stated rates of acceleration are estimated based upon manufacturer’s track results and may vary depending on model, environmental and road
surface conditions, driving style, elevation and vehicle load.
No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome the laws of physics or correct careless driving. Please always wear your seat belt.
Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions.
Best performance in snow is obtained with winter tires.

COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. It does not react to certain stationary objects, nor recognize or
predict the curvature and/or lane layout of the road or every movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver’s responsibility at all times to be
attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle.
Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the system’s alerts before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely.
DISTRONIC PLUS® adaptive cruise control is no substitute for active driving involvement. It does not adapt cruising speed in response to stationary
objects, nor does it predict the curvature and lane layout of the road ahead or the movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver’s responsibility at
all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of
the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the DISTRONIC Proximity Warning System before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time
and distance to brake safely. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake maintenance, and tire and road conditions.
Standard or no charge on ML 400 and/or ML 63 AMG. Please see optional equipment charts in this brochure or visit for details.
Blind Spot Assist may not be sufficient to avoid all accidents involving vehicles in your blind spot and does not estimate the speed of approaching
vehicles. It must not be used as a sole substitute for driver awareness and checking of surrounding traffic conditions.
Driving while drowsy or distracted is dangerous and must be avoided. ATTENTION ASSIST® and/or Lane Keeping Assist may be insufficient to

The personal rewards of striving to be the best are even more meaningful in the development of young
people than they are for automobiles. Instilling the values of leadership, goal-setting, discipline and
teamwork in youth is an investment in everyone’s future. It’s why Mercedes-Benz USA is collaborating
with the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, with an ongoing commitment to train and place hundreds
of coaches for after-school and in-school sports programs in communities around the country. Sports
offer kids more than the chance to be physically active and have fun. It’s also an opportunity to have
a mentor who can guide them, help them learn how to deal with major life issues, and help them grow
stronger not just physically but in their character. As a Mercedes-Benz driver, you become a part of
this effort to give hundreds of thousands of kids a better life today, and all of us a brighter tomorrow.
