For people who are looking for a SUV that makes a style statement first and foremost, we introduce the Mercedes-Benz GLE. This 4 door SUV coupe is based on ML architecture, albeit with a new swoopy body design. The GLE 450 AMG has a 3.0L twin-turbo V6 that produces 362 hp and 384 lb-ft. According to Mercedes, “Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 AMG 4MATIC Coupe features a biturbo V6 engine that produces 362 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque. In addition to the generous amount of standard equipment, the DYNAMIC SELECT dynamic handling control system, the Sports Direct-Steer system and the driver assistance systems typical of the brand, the GLE 450 AMG 4MATIC Coupe comes standard with the 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission and 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive.”
The vehicle has an excellent, high quality interior similar to what’s found in the ML. Typical to newer Mercedes-Benz interior design, it has a large central screen that is surrounded by loads of leather and high quality materials.
This is clearly a competitor to another German name brand with a similar offering. Let’s see how sales pan out in the future.
