The premium SUV that invented its class 20 years years ago still leads the way in every arena of driving, and from every angle of its design. From its iconic Star to its sleek LED taillamps, the GLE keeps the future looking brighter.
A lasting impression from the very first glance
Distinctive LED Daytime Running Lamps catch the eye as their glowing arc sweeps into the sculpted profile. Standard active LED headlamps shine far ahead, and adapt to curves and traffic ahead. LED taillamps show off a “twin torch” design.
If you have an eye for design, all eyes will be on you.
The athleticism of the GLE is evident in its solid stance. Wheels range from substantial 19-inch designs to supersized 21-inch AMG alloys. Standard AMG styling expresses its sporty spirit, while an AMG Night Package takes it to the dark side with black accents.
Advanced power options, agile handling, and easily adaptable cabin and cargo space make the GLE the right vehicle for whatever you’re doing, right now and down the road.
Pump or plug: Gasoline or plug-in hybrid power
Direct Injection biturbo V6 and V8 engines make more power from less fuel, from the smooth, strong GLE 400 to the advanced plug-in hybrid GLE 550e. Even with ultralow emissions, they’ll also fire up your emotions.
Reassurance when the weather turns, rewarding when the road turns.
Standard on every GLE, 4MATIC sends torque to the wheels that can use it best. On slippery roads, it adds all-wheel driving confidence. In dry corners, it adds fun. Light, nimble and efficient, you’ll enjoy its benefits year-round.**
Space to stretch out your imagination, or pack it all in.
The GLE invites five adults to enjoy generous room and gracious comfort. It’ll welcome over 2,000 litres of cargo with 60/40 split-folding rear seats and an available power tailgate. No less rewarding is what it keeps out, from tiny dust and pollen, to the sun’s hot rays through its available panoramic sunroof.
From industry-leading safety systems to its advanced yet user-friendly technologies, the GLE turns innovation you never imagined into benefits you won’t want to go anywhere without.

**No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome the laws of physics or correct careless driving. Please always wear your seat belt. Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions. Best performance in snow is obtained with winter tires.
***Apple CarPlay is a product of Apple Inc. Android Auto is a product of Google Inc. Device and app providers’ terms and privacy statements apply. Requires connected compatible device and data plan. Apps, content and features are selected solely by their providers. Connection to apps and streaming services may be limited by the device’s network connection. Data usage is routed through device and subject to fees, charges and restrictions in user’s wireless plan. Vehicle’s factory audio/information interface, including COMAND navigation, may not be used simultaneously with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. When Apple CarPlay or Android Auto is in use, the steering-wheel voice control button accesses Siri® or Google voice recognition software for voice commands.
****Even the most advanced safety systems may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. It is the driver’s responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for system alerts before braking or taking evasive action, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance. See Operator’s Manual for system operating speeds and additional information and warnings.
Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC cruise control is no substitute for active driving involvement. It does not adapt cruising speed in response to stationary objects, nor does it predict the curvature and lane layout of the road ahead or the movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver’s responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the system’s alerts before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake maintenance, and tire and road conditions. See Operator’s Manual for system’s operating speeds and additional information and warnings..
*****Bang & Olufsen option available on select GLE models, and replaces spare tire with TIREFIT sealant and portable compressor.
