The luxury SUV that started the segment continues to lead the way. Roomy and refined, it's also 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 20-inch wheels are among seven choices up to 21 inches, several paired with even more athletic Sport and Night Package options.
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-colour LED ambient lighting lets you create an atmosphere to suit your mood. And the standard Panoramic sunroof lets you enjoy an evening drive under a blanket of stars.
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 hand grips, the wide trim insert is available in a range of woods, sleek aluminum, or woven metal.
More room, and room for more.
A 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.
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. You can also control it via any of three convenient touch interfaces.
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. 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 feature 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.
Available ENERGIZING Comfort networks seat heating, ventilation and massage with ambient light and sound to 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.
Keep your GLE up to date. Over the air.
Mercedes me connect makes ownership easy. Access Remote Start or Lock/Unlock, see your vehicle status, or schedule service, all from your phone. MBUX can update itself in your driveway. And in-car WiFi for up to eight devices is available for a low monthly rate. Disclaimer
Go with the flow. Even when traffic doesn't.
With available innovations, 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 362-hp turbo inline-6 in the GLE 450 is also electrified: Its EQ Boost Integrated Starter-Generator can seamlessly add up to 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, chassis 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 can vary the torque from 0 to 100%. Disclaimer
A leap ahead in handling. And for handling adversity.
An option for the GLE 450, advanced 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 to escape a sand trap.
