The current-generation Mercedes M-Class (W166) was unveiled in 2011, as a 2012 model, and since then it hasn’t received any major updates. Things are about to change, however, as it looks like a revision for the ML is just around the corner, as our spy photographers managed to snap the first photos of the revised ML during winter testing.
As you can see from these spy shots, it looks like only the front and the rear sections will be updated. The interior will also receive a large iPad-like screen on the dashboard and the new COMAND infotainment controller with a touchpad on the center console.
We also expect to see a few changes under the hood, with a plug-in-hybrid version being a possibility.
The revised ML will be released in late 2014, as a 2015 model. It will join the MLC — the model that will take on the BMW X6 — in Mercedes’ crossover lineup.
Updated 12/23/2013: The upcoming Mercedes M-Class was caught testing again, this time on the public German roads.
