After inspecting the engine specs, performance features, and commanding style of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE, drivers naturally expect a ride that pushes beyond conventional limits. They won’t be disappointed — whether commuting from Cedar Park or tackling tight corners in Austin, the Mercedes-Benz GLE responds like a born performer.


True to its standing within the luxury SUV segment, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE benefits from one of the most sophisticated powertrains in its class:

  • 3.5L V6 Engine: Uses rapid-multispark ignition and high-pressure Direct-injection to produce a higher output and cleaner emissions. A lightweight diecast-alloy block reduces friction and improves efficiency.
  • Seven-Speed Automatic Transmission: Closely spaced ratios provide ideal power distribution whether cruising on the highway or accelerating fast from standstill. Shift paddles are included to allow for manual-style control.

The new GLE optimizes the power of its V6 engine through a plethora of first-class performance features, including:

  • DYNAMIC SELECT: With Comfort, Sport, Slippery, and Off-road preset modes, plus an Individual Mode to be configured around your personal tastes.
  • Agility Control Suspension: Automatically adjusts according to driving style and road surface.
  • Available 4MATIC®: Distributes torque for dependable all-weather, all-terrain traction and a nimble on-road drive.
  • Available ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM: Variable front and rear stabilizer bars adjust their roll stiffness for sharper cornering and controlled body lean.
  • Available Trailer Hitch (Class III): Allows drivers to tow up to an impressive 6,600 pounds.
