The GLE 350 has a 2.0L inline-4 turbo engine with 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Combined with a fuel capacity of 22.5 gallons and a 9G-TRONIC® transmission and rear wheel drive drivetrain, you’ll have an EPA-estimated fuel economy* of 19 miles per gallon in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. The 2021 GLE 350 4MATIC®***** has the same horsepower, torque, and fuel capacity, but with it having all-wheel drive, you’ll have the 4MATIC® drivetrain. Even so, you’ll also see the same EPA-estimated fuel economy* in this trim as well.

Once you step into the 2021 GLE 580 4MATIC® things change a bit. You’ll have a 4.0L V8 biturbo with EQ Boost engine with 483 hp and 516 lb.-ft. of torque. It has the same 9G-TRONIC transmission and 4MATIC®***** fully variable all-wheel drive that the GLE 350 4MATIC®***** does. However, due to it’s increase in power, you’ll find the EPA-estimated fuel economy is different. This trim has** 17 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway, which is a bit less than the lower trims in the lineup.

The AMG® GLE 53 delivers another increase in power, with its AMG®-enhanced 3.0L inline-6 turbo with EQ Boost engine that gives you 429 hp and 384 lb.-ft. of torque. This model also switches things up when it comes to drivetrain and transmission, as you’ll find the AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® TCT 9-speed transmission and the AMG® Performance 4MATIC+®***** all-wheel drive. So, this gives the model an EPA-estimated fuel economy*** of 18 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway.

Last up is the 2021 Mercedes-AMG® GLE 63. This trim delivers 603 hp and 627 lb.-ft. of torque and again has the AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® TCT 9-speed transmission with the AMG® Performance 4MATIC+®***** all-wheel drive. This gives the AMG® GLE 63 an EPA-estimated fuel economy**** of 15 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway.
