The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE: Performance

Starting at $52,000 MSRP, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE offers a generously equipped cabin and mid-size dimensions for excellent utility. Add all that to its performance and handling capabilities, and it’s easily one of the best buys in the Mercedes-Benz lineup. Efficient engines, a whisper-quiet transmission, and adaptive suspension lay the groundwork, while optional features like 4MATIC® all-wheel drive, push the Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV’s performance to greatness.

Top-Notch Features

Direct Injection Technology

The GLE uses Direct Injection technology to inject fuel into its engines’ cylinders via a fine-tuned jet, which reduces emissions and boosts fuel economy.


Standard on the new GLE, this intelligent system automatically loosens and firms the valving inside its shock absorbers for relaxed or high-performance driving.

4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive

The available 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system carefully allocates torque to each of the GLE SUV’s four wheels, based on the conditions of the road you’re traveling.

7G-TRONIC® Automatic Transmission

Built for quiet operation, greater highway efficiency, and unnoticeable gear changes, the 7G-TRONIC® automatic transmission seamlessly adjusts to your driving style.

A Powerful Yet Responsive SUV

At the core of the entry-level GLE 350 is a 3.5L V6 engine rated at 302 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. The lightweight diecast-alloy block keeps the GLE light on its wheels, and helps it achieve an 18 mpg city/23 mpg highway rating. With this engine and proper towing equipment, the GLE can tow up to 6,600 pounds with ease. Standard for the GLE, DYNAMIC SELECT® gives you complete control over the throttle, steering, and transmission. Comfort, Sport, Slippery, Off-Road, and Individual modes are unlocked at the turn of a dial.

To keep you in control on and off the beaten path, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV comes with a handy Illustrated Vehicle Display. With the push of a button, you can view torque distribution, steering angle and vehicle incline measurements, and drive mode settings on the central dash-embedded display. For next-level stability, the optional ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM® uses electrohydraulically variable front and rear stabilizer bars with adaptable roll stiffness to keep the GLE SUV’s performance sharp on a straight-line or winding road.

In a sea of mid-sized sport utility vehicles, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV’s performance sets it far apart.
