Direct Injection V6 engines make more power from less fuel, from the smooth, strong GLE 350 models to the advanced plug-in hybrid GLE 550e with up to 50 MPGe and biturbo quickness. Even with ultra-low emissions, they'll also fire up your emotions.
A twist of a console control lets you dial in the vehicle's performance character to suit your needs or your mood. DYNAMIC SELECT offers four preset modes (Comfort, Sport, Slippery and Off-road) plus an Individual mode you can configure a la carte. Each mode adapts the throttle response, shift programming, ESP and more.
Engineered specifically for performance driving, AGILITY CONTROL automatically adjusts the individual shock absorbers based on the road surface and the driver's current driving style. Valving inside each shock absorber automatically firms up during stronger body motions for sharper handling feedback and stability, and reduces the damping rates during gentler motions for a smoother, more composed ride.
The 7G-TRONIC 7-speed automatic is smooth, responsive and efficient. A wide range of closely spaced ratios delivers the ideal response in virtually every driving situation, for relaxed cruising, quick acceleration, and thanks to two overdrive ratios, better highway fuel efficiency. Adaptive logic adjusts the shift points to match your driving style, while shift paddles on the steering wheel let you enjoy manual-style control anytime.
MB-Tex upholstery offers a rich appearance and supple leather-like feel, even in cold weather. It also offers legendary durability and easy care.
The GLE accommodates up to 80.3 cu ft of cargo with the 60/40-split rear seats folded. Flip-forward seat cushions assure a truly flat, fully carpeted cargo floor. Floor-mounted tie-downs, a side parcel net, and a 12-volt power outlet add to its convenience.
Intuitive, seat-shaped controls help you find your ideal driving position with easy 10-way power adjustment. A memory system for the seat recalls three stored seat positions with the touch of a button, and includes the power steering column and side mirror positions. The lumbar support also power-adjusts four ways.
Place and answer calls, and even access select phonebooks without taking your hands off the steering wheel with standard Bluetooth® connectivity for hands-free calling. Pairing your Bluetooth-compatible phone with the vehicle is simpler than ever. Then, just leave your phone in your pocket and enjoy hands-free conversations over the audio system.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For added protection, the Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty offers continued peace of mind with prolonged coverage tailored to your needs.
Shift into Reverse, and a rear-mounted camera displays a live 180-degree view of what's behind the vehicle on the screen atop the dashboard. Active on-screen guidelines indicate the car's projected path as you turn the steering wheel.
A Mercedes-Benz first, PRE-SAFE® can detect instability during certain vehicle maneuvers that suggest a collision or rollover is imminent. It can then tighten the front seat belts, adjust the front passenger seat, and close the windows and sunroof, all in an effort to better prepare the occupants and restraints in the moments before a collision. If no accident occurs, the seat-belt tensioners reverse, and you simply readjust your seat, open the sunroof and continue on your way.
Equipped with Emergency Tensioning Devices (ETDs) and belt force limiters, 3-point seat belts are arguably our most important passive safety feature. If a collision exceeds a preset threshold, the ETDs instantly remove slack from the front and rear outboard seat belts. Belt force limiters allow a slight amount of give in the ETD-equipped seat belts, to reduce the peak seat-belt forces on the occupant.
An advanced system of 9 air bags offers 11-way occupant protection. Dual two-stage front air bags, front side-impact air bags, front pelvic air bags, a driver's knee air bag, and side curtain air bags for both seating rows are standard.
