Safe. Sophisticated. State-of-the-art.
The 2017 GLE SUV continues to deliver an ideal balance of responsive performance, refined manners, road-gripping confidence and groundbreaking innovation. The SUV that pioneered countless advancements in safety, comfort and performance continues to be as much a revolution as a revelation. Its athletic styling is backed up by its agile handling, and its thoughtfully engineered, user-friendly technologies are a Mercedes-Benz hallmark. With a diverse array of models, an abundance of luxuries, and an industry-leading suite of safety systems, the GLE continues to inspire other SUVs every year — and its own driver every day.
The premium SUV that invented its category nearly 20 years ago continues to balance artful design with state-of-the-art substance. Expressive headlamps integrating LED Daytime Running Lamps frame its iconic grille and sporty front bumper. The twin-power-dome hood and sculpted front fenders flow into a sleek profile, culminating in wraparound rear styling with concealed roof pillars and LED taillamps.
A choice of three gasoline engines employ such innovative technology as Direct Injection, rapid-multispark ignition and a low-friction design, to turn less fuel into more power and torque while leaving behind fewer emissions. A highlight among these powerplants is the 329-hp biturbo V-6 in the GLE400. It delivers the performance you’d expect from a V-8, but — teamed with a versatile 9-speed automatic — with the fuel efficiency that modern times demand.
The power front seats feature intuitive, seat-shaped controls to help you find your ideal driving position with ease, along with 4-way power lumbar support. A 3-position memory system is included as well. Both front seats and the steering wheel (except on Mercedes-AMG models) feature standard heating, while sumptuous available comforts include ventilated Climate Comfort front seats, and heated rear seats.
Approximating daylight even more closely than xenon headlamps, available new Active LED High Performance headlamps enhance your nighttime vision, adapting to the road ahead by steering into corners as you do, and automatically shining as far as possible. Standard LED Daytime Running Lamps and stylish “twin torch” fibre-optic LED taillamps combine eye-opening brilliance with eye-catching style.
When Mercedes-AMG takes the performance knowledge it gains on the racetrack to someplace far from the beaten track, the result is an SUV like no other — actually, two SUVs. The Mercedes-AMG GLE 43 4MATIC delivers the thrust of an AMG-enhanced biturbo V-6 via a sport-tuned chassis and drivetrain. The Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S 4MATIC teams 577 handcrafted horsepower with AMG’s legendary agility and athletic ability.
