Just one day after announcing a new tuning package for the Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster, German tuner Brabus have swicthed their focus to another model in the Mercedes line-up, but this time, it’s an SUV. The new generation ML-Class has been hooked up with the customary exterior and interior updates, as well as a significant power increase.

Brabus has brushed up on the new ML-Class’ already aggressive stance with a few accessories to accentuate it even further. The use of an "On Road" front spoiler with attachments for the air inlets in the front fascia, new sill skirts, a new rear spoiler, and a dual or quad sport exhaust system support their effort in bringing the SUV to the next level. Much like every other tuning package provided for any vehicle, Brabus also threw in a new set of wheels ranging from 18" to 22," depending on the choice of the customer. For the interior, Brabus is offering bi-color stainless-steel scuff plates with a backlit Brabus logo, as well as matte-anodized aluminum pedals, door-lock pins, and a new foot rest. Adding more elegance to the package is the choice of exotic-wood and carbon-fiber trim sets in any desired color.

Finally, for the engine updates, the tuner has added an ECO PowerXtra D6S performance kit that will increase the output from 258 HP to 306 HP and the peak torque from 457lb-ft. to 509 lb-ft. As a result, the 0 to 60 mph sprint will be made 1.4 seconds faster, while top speed will be increased to 142 mph.

The new Mercedes ML-Class by Brabus will be presented November 26th at the 2011 Essen Motor Show.

I guess, everybody love the wheels of this SUV. And can’t blame you with that. That is really simple yet have the angst to give the best impression for this Mercedes car. I love the simplicity of its exterior looks on its black body paint.

The wheels of this SUV speaks for itself. It is really stunning! Among those many parts of a car, I’ve always see the wheels first. And like on this Mercedes car, I really admire its wheels. And so with the whole package of the car.

Yeah! I have to agree with you Lala Roux. It really looks cool on its wheels. Moreover, I hope that this SUV also has a very impressive and comfortable interior even on its speed performance.

The design of its wheels makes this ML-Class looks very perfect! Moreover, I’m glad that they already use an updated engine on this vehicle, and it really looks so fun to drive now than before.

It looks more exclusive if it was on a tinted windshield. smiley Anyway, I’m so impressed on its maximum speed, which is 142 mph, that is already quite remarkable for this one.

306 horsepower is quite good but not for this SUV vehicle, and the fact that it came from Mercedes. I was really expecting it to have such a pleasant engine output. Anyway, I have to agree that it truly looks good with its abstract design.

Yeah! I agreed with that! Well, as what I’ve expected on a Mercedes vehicle, so classy even though it only had a simple detailing. Anyway, I hope that it would also have an impressive engine.

The wheel of this vehicle is really looking cool with it! Moreover, it looks so simple with abstract design, but it still looks elegant on its mileage. Anyway, I am hoping that they will use a powerful engine on it.
