Keeping calm. Perhaps the most valuable trait of the new GLE.

The new active suspension actively assists with sporty or comfortable driving, depending on the selected mode. The curve inclination function and the camera-based road detection make for an effortlessly superior driving experience.

Empathy. For the first time in a SUV.

The new ENERGIZING COACH (optional) can tangibly relax or rejuvenate the driver. To this end, software networks the data of a fitness tracker with various comfort systems in the vehicle.

Information designed so artfully that it belongs behind glass.

Ability to adapt is a sign of strength.

A third seat row with two fully fledged seats is available as an option for the GLE for the first time. Getting in is almost effortless, and the footwell can be flexibly adapted thanks to an adjustable second seat row.

A good companion keeps you out of danger.

Driving assistance systems can offer maximum comfort and safety with assistance adapted to the current situation, e.g. when adjusting the speed, steering, changing lanes, or faced with the risk of a collision.

  • Suspension

    E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL fully active suspension.

    E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL fully active suspension.

    With the new E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL fully active air suspension we are pooling our most innovative and intelligent suspension technologies to create a mesmerising driving experience.

    In "Curve" mode, the vehicle can actively lean into a bend. This minimises the transverse force and tangibly increases comfort and dynamism. In "Comfort" mode, the ROAD SURFACE SCAN with stereo camera scans the road ahead of the vehicle. The suspension struts are then activated so as to substantially reduce the body movements when driving over bumps in the road. There are two other modes to choose from: "Sport" and "Offroad".

  • Engines

    More efficient than ever. The new engine generation.

    More efficient than ever. The new engine generation.

    With new engines, the GLE's acceleration is more powerful and efficient than ever. The line-up ranges from the 4-cylinder diesel to silky smooth and intelligently electrified 6-cylinder in-line engines to the breathtaking flagship V8 engine.


    The new 4- and 6-cylinder diesel engines offer a contemporary combination of efficiency and agility in every output rating. The new 6-cylinder in-line engine goes one better to offer drivers and passengers a special upgrade in terms of refined, smooth running.

    The new, electrically assisted 6-cylinder in-line [*] and V8[**] petrol engines feature turbocharging as well as an integrated starter/alternator, an additional electric compressor and a 48 V on-board electrical system. As EQ Boost, the integrated electric motor supports the combustion engine with up to XX kW (XX hp) of power and XXX Nm of torque during acceleration, for example, and supplies the 48 V on-board electrical system with energy by means of highly efficient recuperation.

    In addition to this, all engine are paired with the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission and 4MATIC all-wheel drive.

  • 4MATIC

    All-wheel drive with variable longitudinal distribution.

    All-wheel drive with variable longitudinal distribution.

    To ensure reliable start-off, even on slippery surfaces, the system permanently distributes the drive torque between the front and rear axle. Even oversteer and understeer when cornering at speed are reduced.

    The 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive with the 4ETS Electronic Traction System ensures outstanding off-road capability and optimum traction on loose surfaces, snow or slush. For noticeably enhanced driving dynamics, the system is able to distribute the drive force variably between front and rear axle on some models of the new GLE.

[*] GLE 450 4MATIC fuel consumption (l/100 km): urban XX.X-XX.X / extra-urban X.X-X.X / combined X.X-X.X; combined CO2 emissions (g/km): XXX-XXX, emission class Euro 6d-TEMP, efficiency class: B<p>The stated figures were obtained in accordance with the prescribed measuring process.
