A Look Back: Ten Years Of The Mercedes M-Class

Although it seems like only yesterday the world was introduced to the Mercedes M-Class, on May 21st, the luxury SUV will be celebrating its 10 year birthday. Produced at the Mercedes plant in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, the M-Class marked a significant historical event for Mercedes – it was the first time a model destined for world distribution that was produced outside the company’s home country of Germany. Since then, production at the facility has expanded, with three models – the new M-Class, the GL-Class, and the R-Class – all starting life in Alabama.
