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.
Agile, efficient 4MATIC® adds all-wheel driving confidence from slippery roads to dry corners. To help turn grip into go, the GLE 350 4MATIC splits the engine's torque 50:50 front/rear. The GLE 450 can vary the torque from 0 to 100%.
A 255-hp turbo engine powers the GLE 350. The GLE 450's 362-hp turbo inline-6 is also electrified: Its hybrid Integrated Starter-Generator can generate 21 hp electrically, 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.
AMG styling, AMG wheels and a diamond-block grille accentuate the sporty shape.
A retractable cover helps shield your cargo or shopping bags from sunlight and prying eyes. The cover is retractable with one hand, or can be removed entirely and stowed under the cargo floor, for maximum cargo space with the seats folded.
A network of LEDs let you create cabin ambience to suit your mood. Edge-lighting outlines the dash/door trim and console grips, and casts a glow in the footwells, door handles and door pockets. Along with 64 selectable colors and adjustable brightness, numerous programs let you enjoy two colors at once, or slowly changing hues. The dash lighting briefly acknowledges your climate-control adjustments. And a "light show" plus front door sills with backlit Mercedes-Benz logos greet your arrival.
Seat heating is standard up front, and a first-class option for the second row. Available ventilation and massage can help rejuvenate your body and spirit in either front seat.
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 can even learn your habits, and new phrases.
A 12.3-inch touchscreen, console touchpad, and steering-wheel Touch Controls give you input choice beyond your voice. And along with MB Navigation, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto are standard as well.
The 3rd-row seating option raises GLE to a seven-seater. The package includes 6-way power-adjustment of the spacious second row for comfort, plus power-folding of its outer seatbacks for easier 3rd-row entry and exit.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For added protection, the Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty offers continued peace of mind with prolonged coverage tailored to your needs.
Rain-sensing windshield wipers can automatically adjust the intermittent wiper frequency based on the amount of rainfall. The rear-window wiper automatically activates if the front wipers are switched on when the driver shifts to Reverse.
For a better view of what's behind your vehicle when reversing, a high-resolution camera can display a live view on the central in-dash screen. Steering-dependent active guidelines on the screen can help you back into a parking space, and you can select between wide-angle and even wider 180-degree views.
Adaptive Highbeam Assist can automatically activate the high beams when camera technology detects there are no vehicles within range ahead of you.
An advanced system of 7 air bags offers 9-way occupant protection. Dual two-stage front air bags, front side-impact air bags, a driver's knee air bag, and side curtain air bags for both seating rows are standard.
