Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class News
The picture is becoming complete on this SUV.
Based on new spy shots, it appears the new Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class is just about ready to be revealed. And the update can't come soon enough, considering the current version dates back to about the 2012 model year when it was still called the M-Class. Two versions of the midsize luxury crossover were caught, one of them likely the basic version, and the other with the AMG Line exterior upgrades.
This example of the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe has been modified by Brabus to produce nearly 700 horsepower. And if that's not enough, the tuner can also crank things up to 838 hp.
Mercedes-Benz is making a big investment in its Tuscaloosa, AL, factory to expand SUV production.
Mercedes-Benz is putting some marketing might behind Jurassic World and displaying several of its rugged models in the movie. The GLE-Class Coupe, G63 AMG 6X6, and Unimog all make appearances in the upcoming film.
The Mercedes crossover lineup gets a stylish, new look and a plug-in hybrid option with the launch of the GLE-Class at the 2015 New York Auto Show.
For those that find that swoopy look of the GLE-Class Coupe too polarizing, Mercedes is now unveiling the more traditional standard GLE-Class. It will offer all of the same luxury and a huge number of powertrain options, and is set to debut at the New York Auto Show.
The luxury crossover coupe isn't always the most loved auto segment in terms of styling, but Mercedes-Benz clearly sees room there to grow. The company's new GLE Coupe shows a new take on the styling to challenge the established BMW X6. Whether buyers opt for the GLE450 or GLE63, they get a mountain of power from either a twin-turbo V6 or V8, respectively, with 4Matic all-wheel drive. They're both on display at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show.
Mercedes-Benz is calling 2015 its "Year of the SUV." This means, in addition to the debut of the GLE-Class Coupe in Detroit, we'll see the standard GLE-Class (which replaces the M-Class), the new GLC-Class, and the GLS-Class, with some featuring plug-in hybrid variants.
