Willie, the Bad Santa of the title (played by a very dour Billy Bob Thornton), flings an empty bottle which hits this ugly example of materialism.

We don't know which engine this has, or the year, since this is all you see of it.

From what is visible, maybe that these info can be guessed (I do not know).
e.g. headlamps, cf /vehicle_32853-Mercedes-Benz-ML-320-W163-2001.html

I think too many Mercs listed by default, eg. a lot of S-Klasses are S500 even though we can't see the badge because S500 seems to be the most popular engine size, I think this should just be listed as an ML.

This ML is a US 2001 model, because have painted bumpers new headlights and restyled grille. :)

It's true that some Mercedes are listed without seeing the badge, but sometimes we can guess (like Antoine said) the model by clearly visible detalis; or, like in the SL (especially R230) US model case, there were only two models sold in USA (SL 500 and AMG version, but the sportier is easily recognizeable by the body kit and/or the iterior).

An example: /vehicle_4377-Mercedes-Benz-SL-500-R230.html
This one must be a SL 500, because: doesn't have the body of the AMG models, and they don't sell the lower version (SL 350) in America. ;)

Benny: Since I'm actually American, I would know what I'm talking about, especially since this is a Merc, so go with me. The SL-Klasse is a roadster, not a mid-size SUV; the ML-Klasse, though, is a mid-size SUV. Also, you're right about the body being the redesigned all one color, but the grill and headlights aren't; the grill was left alone and the headlights weren't different until the 2003 model-year. Another thing, the body was all one color in 2000, not clear until 2001; I'm 110% possitive about that, as I've looked into buying one. Anyway, in my opinion, this is most likely an ML 320, the most popular model-trim for this style ML-Klasse, of course not an AMG. I like these little SUVs and don't care for anyone's opinion but my own . . . unless they diss on them.

I'd list this as a 2000 Mercedes-Benz ML 320.

1999+ due to painted bumper (introduced on ML430 that year, and ML320 the following year).

Not a 2002 facelift, because it lacks indicators in the mirrors.
