The Mercedes-Benz ML Coupe / MLC has been spied undergoing testing in United States ahead of next year's launch.

Mercedes-Benz's delayed answer to the BMW X6 will materialize next year with the arrival of the ML Coupe, a follow-up to the Concept Coupe SUV. The overall shape of the car will closely mirror the X6 and Mercedes-Benz plans to attack the Bavarian competitor on all fronts as an AMG version has already been spied testing and getting ready to rival the X6 M.

Engines and platform will be sourced from the regular ML while the design will essentially be a toned down version of the aforementioned concept, sans the frameless windows along with revised bumpers, rearview mirrors and more production-spec wheels.

An official reveal could occur in January next year at NAIAS in Detroit, with sales to begin by mid-2015.
