If you want to think green, yet get an off-road or towing-capable luxury SUV that doesn't feel compromised in any way, choose the 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML 350 Bluetec; you'll get EPA fuel economy ratings of 20 mpg city, 27 highway, which enables a driving range of about 650 miles. It's already our pick of the two V-6 models, but its green credentials make it more of a no-brainer, despite the ML 350's much-improved refinement.

The gasoline-powered ML 350 is about par for the class, at an EPA-rated 17 mpg city, 22 highway. But it pretty much goes downhill from there. Opt for the more exclusive ML 550, and fuel economy ratings plummet to 15/20 mpg. And go for performance with the ML 63 AMG, and you'll see 14/18 mpg on the window sticker.

Conclusion

Get the ML 350 Bluetec and you'll have one of the greenest highway-worthy large utility vehicles.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
