EDITOR ANDREW STOY: me old fashioned, but I expect a lot out of a Mercedes. if it’s a five-passenger SUV that for around $63,000. For those of you become desensitized, that’s a lot of despite all the other German that assume they’re just as much or more.

To be that money buys you much everything, including excellent COMAND system navigation, the fancy corner-carving air and enough electronic assists to you’ll be notified whenever conditions require you to look up your smartphone. Carpet, and switchgear are all first-rate, but so are competitors’ for significantly less money. Is cross-shopping Lincoln and Mercedes? not, but the MKX. for example, an equally elegant environment and of the e-nannies for $15k less.

I actually find Mercedes’ system to be among the least of the pack, and the parking guides their function without fanfare. Attention Assist can me, though — the system out just as I was getting ready to off the freeway, making me think I was to slam into the side of a I was wide awake, but apparently been steady-state driving for too and the algorithm decided I must be

After putting about 200 on the ML without even using a of gas, I began to wonder the fuel mileage. The trip was recording about 21 mpg in mostly driving, so I checked the specs and this bruiser has a 25-gallon tank that demands Even my math-averse mind can a roughly $90 fill-up at today’s prices, so keep that in while you’re shopping.

As for me, I’m kind of a cheapskate, so I trouble understanding the appeal of an ML something like a Jeep Cherokee or even a larger Explorer. But for those who are cross-shopping a BMW X5 or the Lexus GX. the 2013 Mercedes-Benz 4Matic is a nice-looking, comfortable, performer packed full of all the that make a Mercedes a

EXECUTIVE EDITOR BOB GRITZINGER: If you have a GL for your winter the ML is a fine, smaller option. I’d recommend anybody ML or GL to opt for the diesel, this ML350 a nice job of keeping the nearly pounds rolling along. I experience anything too untoward the electronic nannies, but I was surprised to that $63k doesn’t you for active cruise control. an expensive Benz with all the and no Distronic Plus seems, short-sighted. Spring for the extra whether your travels long hauls or stop-and-go trips. It’ll be worth extra penny.

Like our 2013 Best of the Truck, the GL, the ML is well-appointed and fitted out to the But unlike the GL, the ML isn’t quite as in its operation, even on a comfort setting. And when cranked up to its suspension setting, it can get positively without enough payback in of body roll. With said, it is a model that offer distinctly different depending on settings, and that appeals to those of us who like to get sometimes, but need a dependable, cruiser for a lot more of our miles.

TECHNICAL EDITOR DALE With plenty of snow on the and plows unable to keep up clearing the roads, a normal drive would normally into a 2-hour-plus slog.

But not for us! this 2013 Mercedes-Benz with 4matic all-wheel is not deterred one bit by the thick white on the roads. The lane markings are far and less-skilled drivers are just their own lanes, crawling But the ML350 is a beast! With no whatsoever it moves into an path and motors past the When a fellow driver an ill-advised exit from a street, some gentle on the brake pedal slows down while keeping the ML straight.

The family is comfortable and in the heated cabin, paying attention to bad moves by other than worrying about our The ML350 gets us to our destination plenty of time to spare. The issue is some ice buildup on the blades, owning to the intensity of the But that’s easily knocked off the trip home.

There’s nothing I find about the Mercedes SUV. solid, powerful and goes you point it. It’s comfortable around town and turns a trip into a pampering Thank you for the heated steering and an audio/navigation system that’s to control and adjust.

Yes, pricey. But you won’t find the Grand Cherokee — shares much of its DNA with the — for much less it’s loaded up. I agree my colleagues that the diesel is the way to go for a better balance of fuel and driving range.
