So what's the big deal about the 2009 Mercedes-Benz ML320 Bluetec? Simple: Its clean-burning 3.0-liter V6 (shared with the GL320 and R320) is the first diesel-fueled engine (other than Dodge's heavy-duty truck diesels) to pass the stringent 2010 EPA emissions requirements for 50-state certification. While diesels are a fixture in European-market vehicles, the U.S. government has long been leery of the high particulate emissions endemic to these engines. Thanks to Bluetec, stateside Mercedes buyers can enjoy all the benefits of diesel, including superior fuel economy and a reputation for durability, with the full blessing of Uncle Sam.
Sounds like a win-win proposition, right? And it would be, if this Benz boasted the expected instantaneous turbodiesel torque off the line. However, there's an exasperating delay when you floor the throttle from a stop or forward creep, as though the transmission has been caught off-guard. Forget Mercedes' claim on its Web site of "V8 power in a V6 configuration." Thanks in part to this conservative shift logic, the ML320 Bluetec would have its hands full keeping up with an ML350 and its gasoline-powered V6.
Fortunately, the Bluetec does deliver considerably more miles per gallon when it's time to refuel, though diesel continues to outpace gasoline in the price column as of this writing. Whether you'll enjoy yourself between fill-ups is another matter. Granted, the sumptuous interior appointments are beyond reproach — our test car's upper-crust cabin made the $61,200 asking price seem downright reasonable. But given its gooey steering and ho-hum performance, the 2009 Mercedes-Benz ML320 is probably best experienced from somewhere other than the driver seat.
Nonetheless, this Benz's combination of top-shelf luxury, superior fuel-efficiency and environmental friendliness is bound to win over a good number of deep-pocketed SUV shoppers. In this era of volatile fuel prices and an uncertain automotive future, clean diesels hold considerable appeal as a green alternative to the status quo.
