Power and Capability

Look past the premium design or the upscale luxury and you'll find legitimate performance and capability in the GLE. From brawny powertrains to maximized cargo capacity and useful towing, the GLE is a luxury SUV that has substance beneath the sheen.

The centerpiece of performance in the GLE is its engine. The GLE 350 offers a standard 3.5-liter direct-injection V6 with 302 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. The same engine is offered in the GLE 350 4MATIC. The GLE 550e 4MATIC Plug-In Hybrid switches to a 3.0-liter Biturbo V6 that works in tandem with an electric motor to produce a combined 436 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque.

Available 4MATIC all-wheel drive helps the GLE unlock its performance potential. The 4MATIC system can send torque to any of the four wheels to enhance grip for different applications. In slick conditions like rain or snow, it improves stability. In dry conditions, it can provide excellent handling dynamics.

If you need to bring extra gear or cargo along, the GLE is up to the task with up to 80 cubic feet of cargo capacity. Plus, it's a capable towing vehicle as well. The GLE 350 is ready to tow up to 6,600 pounds, while the GLE 350 4MATIC jumps up to a 7,700-pound tow rating. The GLE 550e 4MATIC Plug-In Hybrid is ready to handle 4,410 pounds.
