2016-GLE-CLASS-450-COUPE-001-CCF-D.jpg

Thoroughbred power, from the place where horses are raised.

Exclusive AMG enhancements create power with a pedigree. From its stronger turbo boost to a dynamic exhaust system, the 3.0L V6 biturbo in the AMG GLE43 heightens horsepower, torque and the emotions they inspire in true enthusiasts. An exclusive red engine cover insert celebrates the 362 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque awaiting within.

AMG chassis dynamics

Pure sports coupe response, in a genuine SUV.

AMG's motorsports know-how comes to life in every element of the GLE Coupe chassis. AMG DYNAMIC SELECT's five modes let the driver choose from sublime Comfort to the highly athletic Sport+. Each setup dials in the adaptive AIRMATIC® suspension, steering, throttle, transmission, exhaust note and more to suit the road, or your driving mood.

9 speeds, performance AWD
2016-GLE-CLASS-450-COUPE-002-CCF-D.jpg

The right gear for any adventure.

The AMG-enhanced 9G-TRONIC transmission collaborates with AMG Performance 4MATIC® all-wheel drive to put the GLE43's ample torque to the best use at each wheel, on any road. A 40:60 front/rear torque split and torque-vectoring Curve Dynamic Assist team up for sharper, flatter handling and quicker response in corners.

No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome the laws of physics or correct careless driving. Please always wear your seat belt. Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions. Best performance in snow is obtained with winter tires.

Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S Coupe

The strength of a Mercedes SUV, the seduction of an AMG coupe.

"Driving Performance" shifts more than its shape in the most powerful GLE Coupe. AMG Performance 4MATIC turns 577 handcrafted V8 biturbo horsepower into unparalleled control and unrestrained joy. And from its AMG brakes, suspension, steering and 22-inch wheels to its AMG SPEEDSHIFT® transmission, it might be the most agile SUV on earth.


Design

Bold SUV shape, true coupe soul
2017-GLE43-AMG-COUPE-001-CCF-D.jpg

Its most alluring line is the family it comes from.

Sleek, sensuous and self-confident. What defines a Mercedes-AMG coupe is not just its body but its soul. And among SUVs, nothing reveals true depth of character with an unmatched breadth of capabilities like the Star in its grille. From its aggressive stance to its muscular shape, the GLE Coupe is a rare breed of thoroughbred performance.

Sport seats, 21-inch wheels
2017-GLE43-AMG-COUPE-003-CCF-D.jpg

Inside and out, it's designed for big wheels

In the AMG GLE43, deeply bolstered front sport seats make you feel like you're king of the road anytime you grip the beefy, leather-wrapped sport steering wheel. And where the GLE grabs the road, the bond is just as tight. Its standard 21-inch wheels are by far the largest in its class. But why stop there? You can also opt for 22s.

Room for five or 60 cubic feet
2017-GLE43-AMG-COUPE-006-CCF-D.jpg

Class-leading comfort, record-setting cargo room.

Four-door coupe design stretches the imagination and the GLE's very real comforts. Generous rear doors welcome three passengers into the widest rear seat in its class. Fold the split seatbacks down for up to 60 cu ft of carpeted luggage space, the most of any coupe in the world. The standard Panorama roof brings in the sun and stars, too.

New style, numerous looks

If you have an eye for design, all eyes will be on you.

The chiseled muscle, athletic poise and undeniable power of the GLE will draw admiring glances. Up close, the GLE proves that style can equal substance. Outside, there are numerous wheel designs and dramatic gloss black accents. The spacious cabin is exquisitely tailored from up to 11 upholstery options and six distinctive trim choices.


Technology

Advanced driver assists
2016-GLE-CLASS-450-COUPE-031-CCF-D.jpg

Intelligent Drive: Virtual eyes on the road. Real action on your behalf.

Advanced technologies enhance safety, reduce driving stress, and help to smooth every move. Active Brake Assist uses radar to help avoid collisions. Available PRE-SAFE® PLUS helps prepare you for rear impacts, in addition to front collisions and rollovers. And optional Distance Pilot DISTRONIC® adaptive cruise control includes Steering Pilot.

Active Brake Assist may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. It does not react to certain stationary objects, nor recognize or predict the curvature and/or lane layout of the road or every movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver's responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the system's alerts before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely. See Operator's Manual for system's operating speeds and additional information and warnings.

DISTRONIC PLUS adaptive cruise control is no substitute for active driving involvement. It does not adapt cruising speed in response to stationary objects, nor does it predict the curvature and lane layout of the road ahead or the movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver's responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the DISTRONIC Proximity Warning System before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake maintenance, and tire and road conditions.

COMAND with 8-inch display
2017-GLE43-AMG-COUPE-005-CCF-D.jpg

Reaches far and wide, brings it all home.

The 8-inch central screen is big yet sleek, bringing entertainment, navigation, driving systems and vehicle settings to life with clear, colorful animated menus. An intuitive touchpad controller on the console makes the advanced COMAND® system even easier to use, so even the most innovative GLE features quickly feel like second nature.

While the navigation system provides directional assistance, the driver must remain focused on safe driving behavior, including paying attention to traffic and street signs. The driver should utilize the system´s audio cues while driving and should only consult the map or visual displays once the vehicle has been stopped in a safe place. Maps do not cover all areas or all routes within an area.

First-rate entertainment
2016-GLE-CLASS-450-COUPE-078-CCF-D.jpg

Engineered to please, from movie buffs to audiophiles.

A treat for both the eyes and ears, the optional Bang & Olufsen® BeoSound™ premium sound system is the result of hundreds of hours of in-studio and on-the-road development by B&O engineers. The optional Rear Seat Entertainment system's dual screens, multiple inputs, and wireless headsets and remotes turns the back seat into a mobile theater.

System replaces spare tire with TIREFIT sealant and portable compressor.

Easy moves in tight quarters
2016-GLE-CLASS-450-COUPE-092-CCF-D.jpg

Makes any journey a joy, down to the last few inches.

Beyond the standard rearview camera, the available Parking Assist Package is like having a virtual valet onboard your GLE. It can help you size up open parking spots, back you in automatically, and pull out when it's time to go. And its Surround View System composes four cameras into one overhead view of your GLE and its immediate environs.

Rearview camera and Surround View System do not audibly notify driver of nearby objects and are not a substitute for actively checking around the vehicle for any obstacles or people. Images displayed may be limited by camera field of view, weather, lighting conditions and the presence of dirt, ice or snow on the cameras.
