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.
