Mercedes ML-Class

Mercedes-Benz launched the first generation W163 series ML-Class in 1997 for the 1998 model year. It is a mid-sized body-on-frame SUV with seating for five or seven with an optional third-row seat. The ML-Class was the first luxury SUV to feature electronic stability control, a system designed to detect loss of control and instantaneously intervene with selective braking to bring the vehicle back on its intended course. Furthermore, the ML-Class boasted front- and side-impact airbags with advanced occupant detection for the front passenger seat, which, helped earn the W163 the highest marks in insurance industry crash tests.

Manufactured in Tuscaloosa, Alabama in the United States, the the ML-Class launched in the North American market first as the ML 320. The ML 320 was sold internationally, with the "320" suffix alluding to the 3.2-litre V6 engine. An entry-level, manual transmission-only ML 230, fitted with a 2.3-litre inline-four was available in Europe from launch in 1997 until 2000. From launch in 1997, European markets also received the ML 270 CDI with a 2.7-litre inline-five turbodiesel engine. This unit was made available in Australia in 2000 and continued on in the W163 until being replaced upon the release of the W164 ML-Class in 2005.
