Performance, enhanced. Driver, entranced.



Possibly the most technologically advanced luxury performance SUV on the market, the AMG GLE 53 is electrified, and electrifying. With triple-boosted torque, intelligent all-wheel drive and a widescreen cockpit, it's a fresh charge for a new generation.

A race that knows no finish line.

A race that knows no finish line.

In an old mill in 1967, two automotive engineers with a passion for motorsports began turning Mercedes-Benz sedans into winning racecars. Today, as the performance division of Mercedes-Benz, AMG continues to create victory on the track and desire on the streets of the world. Every Mercedes-AMG vehicle is the product of craftsmen, designers and engineers who live to test limits, and for a singular goal: Driving Performance.

2019 Mercedes-AMG GLE SUV Performance

Born to perform, developed to outperform

A Mercedes-AMG engine only starts with the state of the art. From there, everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. A new generation of performance is electrified, much like the Formula 1® championship-winning AMG racecars.

Triple-boosted, for a torrent of torque

The classic inline-6 is back in futuristic form: With a twin-scroll turbo and electric auxiliary compressor to output 429 hp, further augmented by a 21-hp electric EQ Boost Integrated Starter-Generator. Seamless torque is the net result, starting with a rush from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.3 seconds. [1]

Nine speeds, for response across the range

Numerous performance enhancements make the AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9-speed a driver's delight on any road, at any rpm. With the multiple modes of AMG DYNAMIC SELECT, you can enjoy perks like rev-matched downshifts, and quicker-then-ever paddle-shifted manual gear changes.


Performance enhancements, for the driver in you

The AMG Driver's Package further sharpens the skills of the GLE 53. DINAMICA side grips enhance the steering wheel. The 21-inch wheels come in exclusive styles. A multimode exhaust lets you be subtle, or not. And AMG Track Pace turns the central screen into a virtual driving instructor. [2]


Agility born on the unbeaten track

Everything AMG learns in its racetrack victories improves how its vehicles perform on the street. With a range of features, a variety of driving modes, and an agile all-wheel drive system, the AMG GLE 53 will remind you every day what the S in SUV stands for.


Multiple modes, for all your driving moods

AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you fine-tune the GLE 53's performance character via a single console control. Seven driving modes (Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Slippery, Trail, Sand, and customizable Individual) can vary the throttle response, gear changes, steering, suspension and more to suit the situation.


Adaptive air suspension, to turn pressure into poise

AMG RIDE CONTROL+ air suspension optimizes both driving dynamics and ride comfort. Its 3-stage adaptive damping responds in milliseconds to changing roads, loads, and driving modes. It can lower at speed to enhance stability and efficiency, you can raise it to negotiate ruts and ramps.

Variable all-wheel drive, to turn traction to action

Variable-torque AMG Performance 4MATIC+ sends the engine's power to the wheels that can use it best to turn grip into go, and tenacity into agility. From decisive launches to powering out of corners, 4MATIC+ can vary the torque split from AWD to 100% RWD. [3]

A new, and higher, definition performance.

The GLE 53's digital cockpit presents its performance as brilliantly as it represents it: A wide range of customizable settings and readouts are delivered via dual widescreen displays. Precise controls connect you to its precisely controlled handling. And its luxury touches are a treat to touch.

The look of a legend advances

While its vertical grille bars and power-dome hood are steeped in AMG's motorsports heritage, the GLE 53 body is pure modern muscle. Aggressively aerodynamic front and rear aprons, flared wheel arches, all-LED lighting and 21-inch AMG wheels assert not just the power within but the advanced technology.

The power of choice continues

With eight distinctive trim options and four choices in Nappa leather seating, you can tailor your GLE 53 to suit your style. Reconfigurable digital instruments with AMG-exclusive displays, as well as 64-colour LED ambient lighting, let you suit your changing moods.


The sense of control takes a turn

Offered in three styles, the AMG Performance steering wheel's contoured side grips invite your ideal grip, keeping the shift paddles and clever touchpads nearby. The available AMG DRIVE UNIT's colour display buttons put key performance settings on the wheel.

The sporting soul shines on every surface

Supersized 21-inch AMG wheels are available in four designs, one exclusive to the AMG Driver's Package. The AMG Night Package details the body with bold gloss black: elements of the front and rear aprons, plus the mirrors, side window trim and roof rails. Black chrome tailpipes bring it to a finish.
