Our keen-eyed spy shoots have managed to nab a few shots of the next-generation Mercedes-Benz ML, though the high-riding SUV is sporting different equipment from the last time we saw it. For starters, there are oil-drum sized cross-drilled rotors on all four corners. Something tells us the standard mom-mobile won't be needing galactic-sized stoppers, which leads us to believe we're staring the next ML63 AMG in the face.
We have next to no solid intelligence on exactly what's under the hood, so allow us to spread on a thick layer of rampant speculation. Our guess is that the engineers at AMG have likely blessed the SUV with the Silver Arrow's brand-spanking-new twin-turbo V8. At 5.5-liters, the engine dishes out a heady 544 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque, though we wouldn't raise an eyebrow if final figures were slightly lower when the new ML lands at dealers. Throw in a massaged suspension and those meaty breaks, and you've got a winner all around. Sounds good enough to get us to soccer practice on time.
