The All-New 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE

September 13th, 2018 by

In 1997 Mercedes-Benz founded the premium SUV segment with the launch of the M-Class. Since fall of 2015 the model family has borne the name GLE, emphasizing its positioning as an SUV in the E-Class model family. At present, Mercedes-Benz is well represented with seven models in the SUV segment (GLA, GLC, GLC Coupe, GLE, GLE Coupe, GLS, and G-Class). 

The new MY20 GLE will receive a completely new range of engines and the new Fully-variable 4MATIC® system, ensuring great agility on the road and superior performance off the beaten track. The GLE will be launched with two engine offerings for the U.S., including a 2.0L Inline-4 turbo engine on the GLE 350 (available summer 2019) and GLE 350 4MATIC® capable of 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, the new inline six-cylinder engine with EQ Boost on the GLE 450 4MATIC®. This 3.0L Inline-6 turbo (362 hp, 369 lb-ft) engine is systematically electrified with 48-volt technology. The Integrated-Starter Generator (ISG) is responsible for functions such as EQ Boost and energy recuperation, while allowing fuel savings that were previously reserved for high-voltage hybrid technology.

The new Mercedes-Benz GLE has a wealth of innovations. For example, E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL is a 48-volt active suspension system and a world first. While the driver assistance systems take another step forward with Active Stop-and-Go Assist. The interior is even more spacious and comfortable, with a third seat row available on request. The infotainment system has larger screens, a full color head-up display with a resolution of 720 x 240 pixels and the new MBUX Interior Assistant, which can recognize movements to anticipate operating intentions. The exterior design not only exudes presence and power, but also sets a new standard for aerodynamics in the SUV segment.

More details, including availability, the Dealer Ordering Guide, pricing, and final specifications will be released closer to launch.
