I think my 98ml320 has enough power, and pretty good gas milage to boot.-D

yeah, they replaced the 430 that had 275 hp with a 500 engine that has a whopping 302 hp.

Designed obsolescence. Newer. Better? (That is debatable)

Exactly the same body and glass. Just updated it in the usual MB style with redesigned bumpers, lights, grille and wheels. See ...

Its got to be said, I don't see the point in the ML500. The 350 has all the power you would want if you were buying a Petrol 4x4, and if you want performance then theres the ML55 AMG. It seems to me that merc are treading on their own toes a little with the ML.

And to be fair, although I love MB's, I'd still buy a Range Rover, or an X5 over the ML...
