Some of the features of the Mercedes ML 270 CDI include a 163-horsepower turbodiesel engine and common-rail diesel injection system. This vehicle was available in Europe and Australia from 2000 to 2004.
The engine of the Mercedes ML 270 CDI is a 2.7-liter five-cylinder inline CDI diesel. Mercedes estimated the top speed at 185 kilometers per hour and acceleration to 100 kilometers per hour in 11.4 seconds. The vehicle has a four-wheel-drive transmission and a manual six-gear gearbox. A Final Edition was made in 2004 that uses nicer interior materials. The ML 270 CDI was never sold in the United States, but the W163 M-Series had a comparable design.
