We haven't seen or heard much about the upcoming 2012 Mercedes-Benz M-Class, but that changes effective immediately. Euro mag Motor-Talk apparently got their hands on some brochure photos of the newly refreshed ute well before the good folks at Daimler were ready to release the pics to the public.

The above photo shows that the rear end will receive a new rear fascia, with flatter, more Mercedes-esque taillamps and a revised bumper. The M-Class also looks set to ditch the traditional moonroof in favor of a panoramic topper. More grainy imagery, which is available on the German Car Forum, shows a more aggressive front fascia and newly stylized headlamps. And perhaps the most pronounced changes will come to the cabin of the mid-size crossover, with a far more modern appearance that includes what appear to be richer materials.

We're not entirely sure when the next M-Class will receive it's official debut, but judging from these alleged brochure pics, we're guessing he reveal will come sooner rather than later. Head over to the German Car Forum to see the rest of the leaked brochure pics.

      Much better looking than the current car, but it's definitely not a game-changing design.

      I can imagine the new gen GL to be something similar, especially the rear with the E-class like wide taillights

      Looks like a new Explorer to me. Who would want to get mistaken for a Ford when they put money out for a Benz?

      Soccer mom's all over the world won't be able to tell the difference between the new and old one.

        But their husbands will, and they will hope the other gated community residents will know the difference, making the lease payments all worthwhile.

      Neat, but nothing ground breaking with those Toyota rav4 headlights , overall it sorta looks like a rational version of the outgoing model. Glad they didn't try to confuse themselves incorporating audi Leds on this one like they did with the CLS.

      Mercedes version of the new Grand Cherokee only far less attractive.

      Styling is subjective, and this design is a little older per-say.... But now the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango look so much better. Way to turn the tables before dumping them, Daimler.

      that rear looks like something out of Lexus. the shape of the light looks like LX 570.
