GLE SUV

The luxury SUV that started the segment once again leads the way. Roomier, with a 3-inch-longer wheelbase, it’s also more agile and aerodynamic. And from LED headlamps to a bold yet elegant cabin, it wraps first-in-class tech in finely tailored style. From its iconic Star to its broad rear shoulders, the GLE shows its well-toned muscle on every surface. Standard and available wheels range from 19 to 22 inches, depending on model. AMG® Line Exterior and Night Package options further amplify their athleticism.

Fully digital instruments visually float on a linear-themed dash. Flowing door-to-door and into a console integrating prominent twin grab handles, the wide trim insert is available in any of five woods, sleek aluminum, or woven metal. A new 3rd-row seating option raises GLE to a seven-seater. The package includes 6-way power-adjustment of the more spacious second row for comfort, plus power-folding of its outer seatbacks for easier 3rd-row entry and exit.

The Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) is high tech with a human side. Speak naturally, and it listens, learns, and helps by controlling features or finding destinations. An available Interior Assistant can even respond as you reach or gesture. * A 12.3-inch touchscreen, console touchpad, and steering-wheel Touch Controls give you input choice beyond your voice. MB Navigation’s augmented reality option shows live video of where to turn. And Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto are standard as well.**

With available new technology, a GLE can spot a traffic jam ahead, slow gracefully, and help negotiate it handsfree up to 37mph. It can change lanes with a tap of the turn signal. And help make driving easier and safer in many more ways.

Countless SUV firsts came to market with the GLE’s previous generations. For 2020, the GLE’s new advancements in performance, efficiency, handling and capability aim to benefit future generations. All while inspiring drivers in the here and now.

A new 255hp turbo engine powers the GLE 350. The GLE 450’s 362hp turbo inline-6 and the 483hp GLE 580 biturbo V8 are also electrified: Their EQ Boost Integrated Starter-Generator can seamlessly generate 21 hp yet allow gas-free coasting and lower emissions.

With nine speeds, the advanced 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission offers a versatile range of ratios, for quick response and efficient, quiet cruising. Fingertip shift paddles and the modes of DYNAMIC SELECT let you take charge anytime.

DYNAMIC SELECT lets you alter the performance character of your GLE just by tapping a console switch. Driving modes from ECO to Sport to custom Individual vary the throttle feel, shifting, suspension options and more to suit the conditions.

New for the GLE 450 and GLE 580, optional E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL can control the spring and damping forces, as well as the ride height, individually at each wheel. It can also scan the road ahead, lean into curves, and even rock itself out of a sand trap.†
