Facelifted Mercedes ML

Mercedes has facelifted its ML SUV. And it's time to sue the surgeon for gross negligence and malpractice. Somehow, Mercedes has made the ML even more busy, even more confusing. What ever happened to the paradigm of "Keep It Simple, Stupid?" Under the hood of the ML63 AMG model, the dishonest jerks actually installed a 6.2-liter engine now making 510 horsepower and 465 lb ft of torque. They've also redone the interior a bit, and I'm ashamed to say it looks pretty good. What is so impressive about Mercedes is that they can make a car this overdone, this gaudy and tacky, and people will still buy it as though it was filled with passengers from Eliot Spitzer's black book.

    It's not what I'd drive, but I like how it looks.

    i'm with dougw and rpn453; i think the car looks really good. and who cares about the .1 liter? mercedes sales are rising in a tough market so apprently a lot of others like the cars also.

    Yeah, this is a pretty good lookin' automobile... for an SUV at least.

    What's wrong with the look... thing looks sharp. And the ML63 is the sports SUV the Cayenne Turbo wishes it was. (But isn't because it also insisted on being an off-roader)
