For The Petrol Heads

  • Engine - OM642. 3.0 litre V6. 190bhp, 440Nm (which is nice๐Ÿ˜€)
  • Selectable 4wd. Electrically selected. You can run it in 4wd all the time if you want. There is a centre diff in the transfer box. If you do the torque is split 35 front 65 rear. Running in 2wd saves a little fuel 
  • No low range but at the end of the day it's not an extreme off road vehicle. You can get a low range transfer box and the earlier ones had 3 mechanical diff locks but it's tricky to find a decent one.
  • Traction control. It's what MB call 4ETS. Same software as the rest of their SUV type vehicles such as the M Class. IMHO it'll never be as effective as mechanical diff locks but it's better suited to the light weight drive train when compared to say a G Wagen.
  • Lifted around 120mm over standard at the factory
  • Medium wheel base.
