2005 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 AWD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
This vehicle has taken its hit on fuel economy but I didn't buy this Mercedes Benz ML 350 (special edition) for this purpose. It's the best all around SUV that I test drove including the BMW SUV 5.0 which I liked but which was overpriced. The special edition includes 17 inch wheels which add to the comfort of the ride. I've owned a Cadillac Escalade and had test drven all the comparable SUV's prior to buying and concluded that this luxury SUV had it all. The ride is comfortable when you drive this SUV unlike other SUV's which drive like a truck.
