What's New

The 2007 Mercedes-Benz M-Class comes with several performance-oriented options, including the 6.3-liter, V-8 engine and multiple fittings to enhance looks, performance, and interior comforts—at a fee of course.

Rear passengers get 58.3 inches of hip room, 40 inches of shoulder room, and 59.8 inches of legroom. The front passenger and driver enjoy eight-way power and height-adjustable bucket seats with back support, the come covered in leather and utilize high-quality cushion for optimum comfort.

The 2007 Mercedes-Benz M-Class includes several power-operated features such as power windows, remote-operated power door locks, and a telescopic and tilt leather power steering wheel with cruise and audio controls. For more convenience, it provides storage spots, including front and rear cup holders, front seat-back storage pockets, door pockets, and a front console with storage.

Standard features for the M-Class include air-conditioning and independent climate controls for the driver and front passenger, illuminated dual vanity mirrors, a light for the cargo area, and various dashboard signals including a clock, a trip computer, and indicators for low tire pressure, door-ajar, low battery, and low fuel.

The entire interior of the M-Class sports high-quality leather finish, with an alloy and wood trim on the console, dashboard, doors, and gear shift. Nothing outdoes the M-Class on the entertainment front. It comes fitted with eight interior speakers to support the sound system from an AM/FM radio with a single CD player, an auxiliary MP3 input, and wiring for telephone use.

The base engine of the 2007 Mercedes-Benz M-Class, a five-liter V-8, produces 302 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, fitted with variable valve timing (VVT). It uses full-time all-wheel drive and a seven-speed automatic transmission. The vehicle includes a high-quality suspension. Maximum towing capacity reaches 5000 pounds with the right equipment.
