, Automotive Editor -

Like most upscale crossovers, the midsize Mercedes-Benz ML550 offers abundant features and silky cruising to complement its inherent versatility. It also packs something that’s harder to come by in this class: a turbocharged V8.

What's New for 2014

The ML550 gains an optional split-screen dash display that can project different images to the driver and front passenger.

Choosing Your Mercedes-Benz ML550

The ML550 carries a 4.7-liter turbo V8 with 402 horsepower for class-leading performance. A seven-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel complete the drivetrain. The ML550 gets its exterior detailing and 19-inch wheels from AMG, Mercedes’ in-house performance shop.

Other standard equipment is shared with the six-cylinder M-Class, including a power liftgate, a sunroof, wood interior trim, Bluetooth phone and audio, integrated smartphone apps and heated power seats in leather or premium vinyl.

Anything missing from the standard equipment list is available in a series of option packages:

CarsDirect Tip

Although the six-cylinder M-Class accounts for the vast majority of line sales, the ML550 with its turbo V8 is far more satisfying to drive and handles loads without breaking a sweat. It’s the natural choice for buyers with any interest in performance.
