The Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV is Much More than Just Luxury

The Mercedes-Benz GLE has been setting standards for luxury SUVs for two decades. It's built a sterling reputation for itself through abundant features, impressive build quality, and quality materials. However, there's more to this premium SUV than just refinement and comfort -- it has serious performance chops as well.

Naturally, performance starts in the engine bay. Every Mercedes-Benz GLE comes with minimum 302 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque via a standard Direct Injection V6. This also means the GLE has a standard towing capacity of 7,200 pounds. Move up to the available plug-in hybrid powertrain and you'll see an increase to 436 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque.

Despite its tall stature and longer wheelbase, the GLE is still able to deliver stable handling. This rings true especially with the available 4MATIC AWD system. The 4MATIC system moves torque among all four wheels to help maximize grip, whether it's on dry roads, wet conditions, or off the beaten path.

There's practical hauling ability in the new GLE as well. Its standard power liftgate opens up 80 cubic feet of cargo space with 60/40 split-folding rear seats.

The Mercedes-Benz GLE offers all of this, plus a level of comfort and refinement seldom seen in the auto industry. To see it for yourself, make your way to Mercedes-Benz of Ann Arbor.
