For the 2015MY, the Mercedes-Benz M-Class SUV will receive two new engines, both featuring twin-turbocharging technology. First to receive a new engine is the 2015 Mercedes-Benz ML400 4Matic, a model that replaces the ML550.

If the ML550 was powered by a big 4.7-liter V8 engine that generated 402 hp, the new ML400 4Matic arrives with a brand new 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 that produces 329 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque (same engine used by the new GL400).

Mercedes-Benz ML400 promises to return 18 mpg in the city, 22 mpg on highway and a 20 mpg combined. These numbers are achievable thanks to a seven-speed automatic transmission, which is offered as standard, but also thanks to the engine stop-start feature.

The German carmaker will offer the ML400 4Matic as standard with leather upholstery, keyless entry, a Harman/Kardon audio system, but also with a brand new AMG Sport Package that brings new front and rear bumpers and 19-inch AMG wheels.

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz ML400 4Matic has a starting price of $62,900, excluding the $925 destination charge. Mercedes-Benz offers the Premium Package as standard, which means that it arrives with Navigation that offers 3 years of map updates, 10GB Music Register, Gracenote media database, Media interface, SiriusXM Radio with 6-month all access trial, SiriusXM Traffic and Weather with 3 years of service, voice control with learning feature, in-dash DVD/CD player and SD card reader, 14-eay power drive seat with memory, power tilt/telescoping steering column, auto-diming rearview and driver-side mirrors, power-folding side mirrors, double sun visors and a rear view camera.

As an option, Mercedes-Benz offers the Driver Assistance Package for $1,950, Interior Sport Package for $710, Parking Assist Package for $1,290 and On/Off-Road Package for $1,640. Mbrace Package costs $280, while the Convenience Package is priced at $490.

Lightning Package includes Adaptive Highbeam Assist and Bi-Xenon headlamps with Active Curve illumination and costs $1,390. The second model to arrive is the 2015 Mercedes-Benz ML250 BlueTec, which replaces the ML350 BlueTec.

This diesel-powered model is powered by a 2.1-liter twin-turbo inline-four engine that generates 200 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. The new engine replaces the old V6 that delivered 240 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque and promises to return 20 mpg in the city, 28 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg combined.
