Countless SUV firsts came to market with the GLE's previous generations. With the all-new GLE, advancements in performance, efficiency, handling and capability aim to benefit future generations. All while inspiring drivers in the here and now.

Turbocharged torque, and an electric enhancement.

The Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 4MATIC is powered by a 6-cylinder engine systematically electrified with 48-volt technology. Its performance data: 270 kW (367 hp) and 500 Nm of torque, with a further 250 Nm of torque and 16 kW/22 hp available via EQ Boost over short periods. The Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) is responsible for hybrid functions such as EQ Boost or energy recuperation, hence enabling very fuel-efficient driving.

9G-TRONIC: The fast and the flexible.

With nine speeds, the advanced 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission offers a versatile range of ratios, for quick response and efficient, quiet cruising. Fingertip shift paddles and the modes of DYNAMIC SELECT let you take charge anytime.


DYNAMIC SELECT lets you alter the performance character of your GLE just by tapping a console switch. Driving modes from ECO to Sport to Off-Road to Comfort to Individual vary the throttle feel, shifting, suspension options and more to suit the conditions.

Action from all the wheels.

Lightweight, efficient 4MATIC® adds all-wheel driving confidence on slippery roads and in dry corners. Continually sending torque to the wheels that can use it best, the GLE 450 can further vary the torque from 0 to 100% front-to-rear

A leap ahead in handling. And for handling adversity.

New for the GLE 450, optional E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL can control the spring and damping forces, as well as the ride height, individually at each wheel. It can also scan the road ahead, lean into curves, and even rock itself out of a sand trap.
