First Drive Review - 2013 Mercedes-Benz M-Class
The Mercedes-Benz M-Class is arguably the vehicle most directly responsible for introducing the concept of a luxury suv to the American market. Fifteen years later, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz M-Class is one year out from a redesign commissioned to help the truck remain competitive in a segment of the market that has grown incredibly crowded thanks to the high profits and strong sales associated with it.
We had the opportunity to briefly slip behind the wheel of the 2013 Mercedes-Benz M-Class last month and put it through its paces both on and off the road. The picture that emerged was of a mid-size sport-utility vehicle that manages to keep up with the Joneses, despite no longer feeling as fresh and vital as it once did.
