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 new GLE shows its well-toned muscle on every surface. Standard 19-inch wheels are among eight choices up to 21 inches, several paired with even more athletic AMG® Line Exterior and Night Package options.
Attention to aerodynamic detail helps make the new GLE more spacious and more sleek. Subtle spoilers ahead of each tire, around the rear window and built into the tailamps reduce noise and fuel consumption without spoiling the good looks
Beautiful by day, the GLE cabin grows even more captivating when night falls. Available 64-color LED ambient lighting lets you create an atmosphere to suit your mood. You can even call up motifs that use multiple hues together or in dynamic sequence.
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.
Using Artificial Intelligence, MBUX can turn your words into your GLE's action. Just say "Hey, Mercedes, it's cold in here" or "I need a coffee," and MBUX can warm the cabin or set the standard MB Navigation. It even learns your habits, and new phrases
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
Available new ENERGIZING Comfort networks seat heating, ventilation and massage with ambient light and sound to help rejuvenate your body and spirit as you drive. Ionizer-purified air can be subtly infused with fragrance. It's a sensation for every sense.
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 255-hp turbo engine powers the GLE 350. The 362-hp turbo inline-6 in the GLE 450 is also electrified: Its EQ Boost Integrated Starter-Generator can seamlessly generate 21 hp yet allow gas-free coasting and lower emissions.
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, 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.
