New Commercial Features 2012 Mercedes-Benz M-Class

The third-generation Mercedes-Benz ML is set to go on sale this fall, which means it's time for the automaker to start advertising its upcoming luxo-ute. The following commercial posted on Mercedes-Benz.TV is titled "The Switched Gifts", and is described as "two packages, two women and a mishap: Watch here as a man with the new M-Class races against time." So what is the focus of the long-form ad?

While it's entertaining to watch this man attempt to fix his flub, we can't forget that the new 2012 M-Class is the real star here. The commercial provides more than five minutes of M-Class eye candy as it races around city streets, mountain roads and muddy off-road trails (without getting dirty!). The video also showcases a few new tech gadgets including the ECO-mode Start/Stop feature which shuts the engine down at stop lights and restarts it before you're ready to mash on the pedal, much like the system that recently debuted in the new 2012 CLS 63 AMG. Euro spec MLs will definitely be fitted with the fuel-saving option, but it's unclear yet if Mercedes will fit it to the U.S.-spec vehicles.
