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.
Two advanced engines team twin-scroll turbocharging with 48-volt EQ Boost that can add 184 lb-ft of electric torque. A 429-hp turbo inline-6 further boosted by an electric compressor rushes the GLE 53 to 60 in 5.2 seconds. The handcrafted 603-hp AMG biturbo V8 thrusts the GLE 63 S to 60 in 3.7 seconds.
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.
AMG Performance 4MATIC+ sends power to the wheels that can best 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. An electronic limited-slip rear diff gives the GLE 63 S even sharper control.
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, an AMG GLE will remind you every day what the S in SUV stands for.
AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you fine-tune your GLE's performance via a console control or the available steering-wheel AMG DRIVE UNIT. Seven programs, from Comfort, Sport+ and Sand to your own Individual mode, can vary throttle mapping, shifting, suspension and more. The GLE 63 S adds a track-ready RACE mode.
The GLE 53's AMG Sport Exhaust accentuates the AMG soundtrack under revs, yet stays melodious when you're cruising. Computer-controlled flaps on the AMG Performance Exhaust, standard on the GLE 63 and a GLE 53 option, let you conduct the orchestra yourself via AMG DYNAMIC SELECT or direct actuation.
AMG RIDE CONTROL+ air suspension optimizes driving dynamics and comfort. Its 3-stage adaptive damping responds to roads, loads, and driving modes. It can lower at speed to enhance stability and efficiency, or you can raise it to negotiate ruts and ramps. Available AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL adds an innovative roll stabilization system.
Supersized AMG® wheels fill the flared wheel arches and frame the substantial brake hardware. GLE 53 wheels are available in seven designs from 20 to 22 inches. The GLE 63 S offers 21-inch and 22-inch designs, each in two color schemes.
The look of a legend advances. While the AMG grille and power-dome hood are steeped in motorsports heritage, the GLE bodies are pure modern muscle. Aero-aggressive aprons and all-LED lighting assert the power and advanced technology within.
The AMG Night Package adds bold black elements from front to rear, wheels to roof rails.
AMG and the GLE have long teamed up for muscular looks are brought to life in the driving experience. For 2021, a fresh design extends this tradition with innovative technologies and class-leading aerodynamics. From its AMG-specific vertical-bar grille and exclusive front and rear aprons, to its color-keyed fender flares, the GLE SUV commands the road as well as it captivates the eye. GLE 53 SUV pictured here with standard 20-inch wheels.
Sleek and purposeful, the roof rails accommodate a variety of available accessory attachments for carrying bikes, surfboards, skis, snowboards and cargo carriers. They're crafted from elegant aluminum that adds modern style even when you're not using them.
Stylish and functional running boards ease your entry and exit while providing a rugged element of design. Grippy rubber studs dot the running boards, for a surer step even in inclement weather. And elegant, seamlessly integrated LED illumination of the step area helps to light your way aboard.
The AMG GLE digital cockpit presents 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.
Offered in up to four styles, the AMG Performance steering wheel's contoured side grips invite your ideal grip, keeping the shift paddles and clever touchpads nearby. Standard on the GLE 63 S and a GLE 53 option, the AMG DRIVE UNIT's color display buttons put key performance settings on the wheel.
With eight distinctive trim options and a spectrum of upholsteries, you can tailor your AMG GLE to suit your style. Reconfigurable digital instruments with AMG-exclusive displays, as well as 64-color LED ambient lighting, let you suit your changing moods.
A groundbreaking concept in automobile cockpit control, the Mercedes-Benz User Experience advances to the forefront of innovation. MBUX integrates digital in-dash displays including a touchscreen, touch-sensitive controls, Bluetooth® hands-free and audio streaming, and an available industry-advancing voice control system that responds to your everyday speaking voice and phrasing of commands. You can set up multiple user profiles of favored settings, and groups of settings can be saved as themes or moods.
An overhead camera and lasers lets MBUX respond to the driver's and front passenger's hand and arm movements. Reach for the touchscreen or console touchpad, and the display can highlight likely desired features, such as the passenger's seat comfort settings. Key features can also be controlled by simple hand gestures, like pointing toward the rearview mirror to turn on a map light. For each front seat, a programmable favorite feature can be activated by pointing forward with two fingers.
Electrically heated front seats quickly take the chill out of even the coldest day. Three levels of warming automatically step down after several minutes to the lowest setting.
Heated and ventilated seats are a luxury you'll soon consider a necessity. Three levels of heating and cooling ventilation are offered. By gently circulating air through perforations in the seat and backrest, the seats help keep you cooler and your clothes drier during warmer months. On cold or damp days, using both the ventilation and heating features together can circulate the seat heating more quickly, to help keep you warm and dry.
Pneumatically adjustable lumbar and side supports offer custom-tailored comfort. Eight massage programs can soothe and rejuvenate your back and shoulders, including two spa-like "hot stone" massages, plus an "active workout" program to help strengthen your back and leg muscles.

Distinctive three-dimensional taillamps are part of the GLE's 100% LED lighting. LED headlamps generate light that more closely approximates natural daylight.
Radar-based technology can alert you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as you start to brake, it can automatically provide an appropriate level of braking to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, it can also initiate braking automatically at a range of driving speeds. The system can also detect and react to crossing pedestrians at typical city speeds.
If an air bag deploys, your car can automatically initiate a call to Mercedes-Benz Emergency Services, transmitting your GPS-determined location and helpful vehicle information on your behalf. Trained experts are on call 24/7 to help summon local emergency responders to your location. You can also press the SOS button in the vehicle anytime you need emergency assistance, or see someone else who does. This vital service is provided for as long as you own the vehicle, no matter who's driving.
The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST® continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior, and can automatically alert the driver with both visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips. With enhanced sensitivity, the system can also help detect drivers who begin their trip drowsy, and offer more useful information to drivers along their journey via a dashboard display.
A Mercedes-Benz innovation, Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC cruise control uses radar-based technology to adapt your set speed in response to the flow of traffic ahead. If traffic slows down, it can reduce your speed automatically until your path clears. If the vehicle ahead slows to a stop, it can brake to a full halt. When traffic moves, you can resume with just a tap of the accelerator or cruise control button, or it can resume automatically if the stop is under 30 seconds.
