Design

New name, new look
2016-GLE-CLASS-SUV-092-CCF-D.jpg

A new beginning for the SUV that started it all.

The premium SUV that invented its class 18 years ago has a new name, a new design, and new advancements within its muscular body. The M-Class is reborn as the GLE, and it's here to extend its lead in every arena of driving. From its powerfully new front end to its sleek LED taillamps, the future of the SUV has never looked brighter.

Advanced amenities

Technologically friendly and tailored to fit.

From its big new 8-inch screen to the tiniest perfect stitch, the new GLE cabin brings you game-changing technology with an unwavering tradition of quality. Hand-polished wood and hand-fitted upholstery reward your senses as much as its intuitive new controls, advanced connectivity and innovative luxuries fit your sensibilities.

All-LED lighting

A lasting impression from the very first glance

Distinctive new LED Daytime Running Lamps don't just captivate new admirers, they inspire the eyes to linger as their arched shape sweeps into the resculpted fenders. Available active full-LED headlamps shine farther ahead, and adapt to curves and oncoming traffic. Fiber-optic LED taillamps feature a memorable "twin torch" design.

Muscular shape, multiple styles

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

The athleticism of the GLE is evident in its solid stance. Wheels range from substantial 18-inch or 19-inch designs to supersized 21-inch AMG alloys. Exterior and Interior Sport Packages express its sporty spirit, while a new Night Package takes it to the dark side. New upholstery and trim choices let you tailor the cabin to your style.


Versatility

Gas, diesel or Plug-In HYBRID

Pump or plug: Gasoline, clean diesel and new Plug-In HYBRID options.

Three of the six advanced Direct Injection engines in the GLE make more power from less gasoline. Two can with no gas at all: the clean-diesel GLE300d, and a new GLE550e Plug-In HYBRID that can go 18 miles on pure electric power. And while they all offer ultralow emissions, their responsive performance will spark every driver's emotions.

Room for five, or 80.7 cu ft
2016-GLE-CLASS-SUV-097-CCF-D.jpg

Space to stretch out your imagination, or pack it all in.

The GLE invites five adults to enjoy generous room and gracious comfort. When it comes to cargo, it'll welcome over 80 cu ft of it with a standard power liftgate and versatile 60/40 split-folding rear seats. Just as rewarding is what it keeps out, from tiny dust and pollen, to the sun's hot rays through its available Panorama roof.

The confidence of 4MATIC
2016-GLE-CLASS-SUV-098-CCF-D.jpg

Reassurance when the weather turns, rewarding when the road turns.

Standard on nearly every GLE, 4MATIC® all-wheel drive instantly sends power to the wheels that can use it best, inspiring confidence on slippery streets and around sharp corners. The 4-wheel independent AGILITY CONTROL® suspension reads the road surface, too, instantly adapting for silky comfort or crisp handling control in real time.

No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome the laws of physics or correct careless driving. Please always wear your seat belt.

The AMG GLE63 and AMG GLE63 S
2016-GLE63-AMG-CLASS-SUV-006-CCF-D.jpg

Surefooted power, crafted by hand.

A pair of handcrafted biturbo V-8s only begin to reveal the superpowers of the 550-hp AMG GLE63 and class-leading 577-hp AMG GLE63 S. Big 20-inch or 21-inch AMG® wheels team with their advanced AIRMATIC® suspension and ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM. So they can tackle terrain few SUVs would dare to attempt, like the tight curves of a mountain highway.


Technology

Advanced driver assists

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

A team of advanced technologies enhance safety, reduce driving stress, and help to smooth every move. COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS can brake to avoid a collision autonomously. PRE-SAFE® PLUS helps prepare you for front, rear and rollover accidents. And optional DISTRONIC PLUS® pairs adaptive cruise control with innovative steering assist.

COLLISION PREVENTION 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.

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.

Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake maintenance, and tire and road conditions.
