A 255-hp turbo engine powers the GLE 350. The GLE 450's 362-hp turbo inline-6 and 483-hp GLE 580 biturbo V8 are also electrified: Their EQ Boost Integrated Starter-Generator can seamlessly generate 21 hp yet allow gas-free coasting and lower emissions.

DYNAMIC SELECT lets you alter the performance character of your GLE just by tapping a console switch. Driving modes from ECO to Sport to custom Individual vary the throttle feel, shifting, suspension options and more to suit the conditions.
Agile, efficient 4MATIC® adds all-wheel driving confidence from slippery roads to dry corners. To help turn grip into go, the GLE 350 4MATIC splits the engine's torque 50:50 front/rear. The GLE 450 and GLE 580 can vary the torque from 0 to 100%.
Standard on the GLE 580 and available on the GLE 350 4MATIC and GLE 450, adaptive and self-leveling AIRMATIC® suspension can turn pressurized air into calm composure. It can adapt to changing roads, driver-selected modes, and cargo loads.
An ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations, to save fuel and reduce emissions. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for quick acceleration response. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time.
Attention to aerodynamic detail helps make the GLE more spacious and more sleek. Subtle spoilers ahead of each tire, around the rear window and built into the taillamps reduce noise and fuel consumption without spoiling the good looks.
From its iconic Star to its broad rear shoulders, the GLE shows its well-toned muscle on every surface. Standard and available wheels range from 19 to 22 inches, depending on model.

Purposeful elegance has defined the GLE since it first pioneered its market segment as the M-Class. For 2021, this tradition stays strong with innovative technologies and class-leading aerodynamics. From its bold grille and all-LED lighting to its standard 20-inch wheels and integrated rear spoiler, the GLE 580 SUV's sporty style reflects its agile moves. Silver chrome accents in its AMG lower bodywork and bright side window trim further accentuate its form and function.
Beautiful by day, the GLE cabin grows even more captivating when night falls. Standard 64-color LED ambient lighting lets you create an atmosphere to suit your mood. You can even call up motifs that use multiple hues together or in dynamic sequence.
Fully digital instruments visually float on a linear-themed dash. Flowing door-to-door and into a console integrating prominent twin grab handles, the wide trim insert is available in a variety of woods, sleek aluminum, or woven metal.
The 3rd-row seating option raises GLE to a seven-seater. The package includes 6-way power-adjustment of the spacious second row for comfort, plus power-folding of its outer seatbacks for easier 3rd-row entry and exit.
Using Artificial Intelligence, MBUX can turn your words into your GLE's action. Just say "Hey, Mercedes, it's cold in here" or "I need a coffee," and MBUX can warm the cabin or set the standard MB Navigation. It can even learn your habits, and new phrases.
A 12.3-inch touchscreen, console touchpad, and steering-wheel Touch Controls give you input choice beyond your voice. MB Navigation's augmented reality option shows live video of where to turn. And Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto are standard as well.
Standard seat heating plus available ventilation and massage can help rejuvenate your body and spirit as you drive. Ionizer-purified air can be subtly infused with fragrance. It's a sensation for every sense.

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.
