Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Features
Based on the outrageously successful design of the outgoing M-Class, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class in Scottsdale AZ is the newest and best of the Mercedes-Benz family. It is an SUV with various trims and packages that make it a perfect fit for any driver. From plug-in hybrid, to diesel, to a 577-horsepower V8, the GLE-Class is one of the most anticipated vehicle releases around the globe for 2016.
As one of the first Mercedes-Benz to be equipped with Dynamic Select technology, the GLE becomes multiple cars are the same time. For different driving settings, the driver can switch between Individual, Comfort, Slippery, and Sport modes. Each mode changes the way the car operates and feels. Sport mode stiffens the suspension and tightens up the transmission to increase speed of shifts and ultimately make the car faster. With the 4MATIC all-wheel drive option, the GLE will also include an Off-road Dynamic Select mode to increase traction on any terrain.
The GLE is available in six different trims. The GLE350 is the base model. It was formerly known as the ML350 and still has a lot of the similarities to the M-Class. The differences, however, make the GLE far superior to its predecessor. The GLE350 comes with a 3.5L V6 that puts out 302 horsepower and a seven-speed automatic transmission. As we move up the line of trims, the specifications rise slowly until we reach the AMG models. The GLE63 and the GLE63 S come with V8 engines that put out 550 and 577 horsepower respectively.
