, Automotive Editor -

Adding the clean-diesel technology of the BlueTEC engine helps this version of the ML350 achieve better fuel efficiency than its gasoline-powered sibling. Yet it doesn’t sacrifice anything in the quality and comfort expected of a Mercedes-Benz.

What's New for 2014

There are no significant changes to the ML350 BlueTEC for the 2014 model year.

Choosing Your Mercedes-Benz ML350 BlueTEC

Because this SUV features the clean-diesel BlueTEC technology, there are no options here. The 3-liter turbo-diesel V6 produces 240 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque for towing duties. There’s a seven-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and all ML350 BlueTEC’s come with Mercedes-Benz’s standard 4Matic all-wheel-drive system.

Despite some very nice standard equipment, such as a Nappa leather multifunction steering wheel, a sunroof, and eucalyptus wood trim, Mercedes-Benz offers a long list of options for this model. Among the individual (non-packaged) options are such equipment and features as:

  • Running boards with a brushed aluminum finish and rubber studs to keep feet from slipping
  • A Class III trailer hitch that includes wiring harnesses for trailer lights and brakes
  • Interior ambient lighting produced by a network of LED lights with a choice of three colors
  • A rear-seat entertainment system featuring two screens which can work together or separately along with two wireless headsets and remotes
  • A Harman Kardon LOGIC7 sound system with 13 speakers and a subwoofer
  • Heated rear seats and steering wheel, each available separately
  • An in-vehicle WiFi hotspot
  • Leather upholstery with burl walnut interior trim
  • A panoramic sunroof as an upgrade to the standard version

Additional optional equipment is available through packages that bundle like features together, such as:

  • The Premium 1 package that includes an assortment of electronics including a hard-drive navigation system, SiriusXM service along with Traffic and Weather, music and media interfaces and voice control function. Also included are a driver’s seat with memory and a rearview camera.
  • The Sport package offers aerodynamic exterior styling and 19-inch 5-spoke wheels. The Sport Package Plus One exchanges those wheels for 20-inch wheels. Both include all-season tires.
  • A Lighting package adds bi-xenon headlights that turn as the SUV turns and offer adaptive high beams.

Three bundles of electronic driver-assistance features include:

  • Driver Assistance with adaptive cruise control with full braking, active blind-spot assist and active lane-keeping assist, both of which can help your car return to its lane.
  • Parking Assist includes the Parktronic system that steers your car into a parallel-parking space and a surround-view camera system.
  • Lane Tracking offers blind-spot and lane-keeping warning systems.
