Mercedes-Benz ML55 AMG (2001)

By Tom

Mercedes-Benz pulled a shocker it introduced its ML55 AMG. The took its refined and luxurious ML430 and added power, and guts.

OUTSIDE — The redefined how an everyday SUV could Its very short front and overhangs create an illusion makes it look smaller its actual size. To differentiate the AMG the other two ML versions, long, bulges on the hood, called domes by the company, were to imply a connection to the Mercedes coupe of the ’50s. The front cover has built-in fog lamps, headlamp washers and a slightly look than the others. A set of fender flares were added, along with a rear bumper and dual tipped exhaust pipes. 18-inch alloy wheels as standard equipment, as do very high-performance 285/50WR18 Dunlop

INSIDE — When designed the ML’s interior, the not only kept luxury at the but it focused on the utility side of too. With that in it’s no wonder that though it’s a relatively vehicle compared to some SUVs, it can hold a sizable of cargo (71 cubic feet the seats down; 33.5 feet with the seats up) and do it in fashion. The rear seats are three ways and can be folded as while several tie-down allow the secure transport of But it wouldn’t be a Benz without items, so in addition to the standard stereo, rich leather and soft textures on the dashboard, AMG dark-stained burled walnut to the panels, instrument panel and wheel. The off-white gauges are by chrome rings to compliment the treatment of the ventilation controls.

To enhance its intake AMG added a larger cross-section to the intake manifold, lightweight camshafts with longer profiles, stiffer valve a recalibrated fuel injector and dual-path plumbing. All of these add up to 342 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque. mph comes in a rapid seven and it can pull over 90 mph in the quarter Connected to the engine is a five-speed transmission with electronic along with all-wheel and downhill traction control for grip on the street or off-road. An stability program (ESP) the driver in maintaining control in the of a skid or slide.

BEHIND THE WHEEL — The rides on pretty much the ML-Class suspension, which is one of the in the SUV business. It’s fully front and rear, though the springs and tuning rates are all than the ML430 and ML320. of the suspension components are made of aluminum, and no important hardware the fuel tank and transmission pan below the lower control This makes sense the ML55 is a true off-roader as are the ML320 and 430 models but few M55’s ever experience a dry wash or bed. Accurate speed-sensitive steering gives plenty of while its massive four-wheel brakes feature four-piston up front, which reduce and increase braking grip. a four-wheel anti-lock braking is standard.
