DESIGN

The luxury SUV that started the segment once again leads the way. Roomier, with a 3-inch-longer wheelbase, 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.


GLE SUVs Masters Destruction Video

Destruction is not the end. It’s a beginning. The vision to create what has never existed. Destruction wipes the slate clean and moves forward. Destruction can be beautiful. Because destruction helps keep us safe. Behind every beautiful car is a beautiful idea.

The standard for style. Lots of options for it, too.

From its iconic Star to its broad rear shoulders, the new GLE shows its well-toned muscle on every surface. Standard 19-inch wheels are among eight choices up to 21 inches, several paired with even more athletic AMG Line Exterior and Night Package options.

Function in its finest form.

Attention to aerodynamic detail helps make the new GLE more spacious and more sleek. Subtle spoilers ahead of each tire, around the rear window and built into the tailamps 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. Available 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 any of five woods, sleek aluminum, or woven metal.

More room, and room for more.

A new 3rd-row seating option raises GLE to a seven-seater. The package includes 6-way power-adjustment of the more spacious second row for comfort, plus power-folding of its outer seatbacks for easier 3rd-row entry and exit.

INNOVATION

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 even learns your habits, and new phrases. [1]

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 negotiate it hands-free up to 37 mph. It can change lanes with a tap of the turn signal. And help make driving easier and safer in many more ways. [4]

Action from all the wheels.

Lightweight, efficient 4MATIC® adds all-wheel driving confidence on slippery roads and in dry corners. Continually sending torque to the wheels that can use it best, the GLE 450 can further vary the torque from 0 to 100% front-to-rear. [5]

A leap ahead in handling. And for handling adversity.

New for the GLE 450, optional E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL can control the spring and damping forces, as well as the ride height, individually at each wheel. It can also scan the road ahead, lean into curves, and even rock itself out of a sand trap.
