No, the company didn’t stop the production of M-Class, they only rebranded it to the GLE-Class. The GLE 450, GLE 63, GLE 43, etc are all in the M-Class lineup. This review will give you insight into the history, specifications, and price of Mercedes Benz M-Class in Nigeria. It will the price of the popular ML 350 and the rest.
At the time when Mercedes Benz launched the M Class, BMW already sells M models such as the M3, the company decided to add a three-digit engine-level afterward. The development also forced the company to defer a double-tiered marketing strategy “ML” badging.
The M Class has seen three generations since its inception in 1997. The third generation has the name changed and a complete redesign. In the cause of this price review, I will review the price of the second-generation ML only since I have reviewed the prices of the third generations in my previous post.
