Mercedes asserts that it developed the luxury-SUV segment with the initial ML in the 1998 model– although that belief requires forgeting the Range Rover. The segment is extremely popular, and Mercedes-Benz had to update the GLE to bring it as much as the requirements of the competition, to state nothing of the level of Mercedes’ own automobile. The 2019 GLE will be somewhat lighter and have even more advanced infotainment, telematics, and driver-assistance systems.
The next-gen GLE will be the first model developed atop Daimler’s brand-new MHA architecture. This internal moniker represents Modulare Hoch-Architektur, or Modular High Architecture, and it will form the basis of the next GLS also. We anticipate another fastback “coupe” version down the roadway, too.
2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE Design
At the front, the larger headlights are entirely brand-new and have double LED daytime running lights, which for some reason were just dealing with among the clusters. At the back, the taillights are primarily masked by the swirly camo, but nevertheless you can easily see these are brand new as well.
Looking at the side profile, it seems the brand-new GLE will have slightly much shorter front and rear overhangs while the wheelbase is going to be stretched taking into account the rear doors appear to be a little longer than those of the existing model. That can just suggest one thing: a more roomy interior, with the majority of the stretch to pay dividends in regards to legroom for rear passengers.
2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE Engine
The highly versatile MHA platform need to accommodate four-, six-, and eight-cylinder engines in back- and all-wheel-drive applications, with hybridization a certain possibility. For the U.S. market, look for diesel and gas inline-six engines (the gas in regular and AMG spec), a hybrid version, and an AMG-branded twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8.
2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE Price
Late 2018 as a 2019 model, at costs close to those of the present GLE.
