ML430 maximum torque
In first gear low range the ML430 produces 8,562 lb / ft
of torque @ 3000 rpm
Each wheel receives 2,140 lbs/ft of torque
However, during take off the ML430 is able to produce 11,687 lbs/ft of
Per wheel that's a whopping 2,922 lbs/ft
The MLs outstanding crawl ratio* of 64:1 in combination with the automatic's torque converter
are responsible for this impressive result.
The torque multiplying action of the torque converter makes
an automatic an excellent choice for maximum off-road power and an outstanding
choice for anyone who has to tow heavy loads.

A dyno test measures the actual torque available
at the wheels, which might differ from the manufacturer's published data.
