The pricing is not even that bad for what one gets with the base price on the ML550 coming in at $58,465. This gets you a 402 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque Twin Turbo V8 with 4.6 liters of displacement. Handling is an incredibly respectable .85g on the skidpad.
Just compare these figures to the recently tested G550 with the same motor and the ML550 makes the G550 look like it is a car from a different era, which it sort of it. Absolutely incredible results for this SUV and frankly, it's a bargain. Well done Mercedes-Benz.
