The luxury SUV that started the segment continues to lead the way. The roomiest GLE yet, 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.
The standard for style. Lots of options for it, too.
From its iconic Star to its broad rear shoulders, the GLE shows its well-toned muscle on every surface. Standard and available wheels range from 19 to 22 inches, depending on model. AMG Line Exterior and Night Package options further amplify their athleticism.
Function in its finest form.
Attention to aerodynamic detail helps make the GLE more spacious and more sleek. Subtle spoilers ahead of each tire, around the rear window and built into the taillamps reduce noise and fuel consumption without spoiling the good looks.
Ambience that glows with the flow.
Beautiful by day, the GLE cabin grows even more captivating when night falls. Standard 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.
Countless touches to reward your touch.
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 a variety of woods, sleek aluminum, or woven metal.
More room, and room for more.
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.
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.
Talk like you always do. It'll respond like never before.
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. Disclaimer
Pinch the touchscreen. Swipe on the wheel. Or handwrite on the console.
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. Disclaimer Disclaimer
Refresh your body. And freshen the cabin.
Standard seat heating plus available ventilation and massage can 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.
Go with the flow. Even when traffic doesn't.
With available new technology, a GLE can spot a traffic jam ahead, slow gracefully, and help you negotiate through it. It can change lanes with a tap of the turn signal. And help make driving easier and safer in many more ways. Disclaimer
Countless SUV firsts came to market with the GLE's previous generations. The 2021 GLE's advanced performance, efficiency, handling and capability aim to benefit future generations. All while inspiring drivers in the here and now.
Turbocharged torque, and an electric enhancement.
A 255-hp turbo engine powers the GLE 350. The GLE 450's 362-hp turbo inline-6 and 483-hp GLE 580 biturbo V8 are also electrified: Their EQ Boost Integrated Starter-Generator can seamlessly generate 21 hp yet allow gas-free coasting and lower emissions.
9G-TRONIC: The fast and the flexible.
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.
Multiple modes for different roads.
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.
Action from all the wheels.
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 and GLE 580 can vary the torque from 0 to 100%. Disclaimer
Poise under pressure.
Standard on the GLE 580 and available on the GLE 350 4MATIC and GLE 450, adaptive and self-leveling AIRMATIC® suspension can turn pressurized air into calm composure. It can adapt to changing roads, driver-selected modes, and cargo loads.
