While the Germans at Daimler announced earlier this week they have started accepting orders for the all-new 2012 Mercedes-Benz M-Klasse, the North American division of Mercedes-Benz revealed the luxury crossover has finally made its on-road debut in the United States.

Together with the R-Klasse and GL-Klasse, the third generation 2012 Mercedes M-Klasse luxury crossover is produced in the States at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, which began production in 1997 with the first-generation M-Klasse.
