The Power You Crave

The base model, the 2020 GLE 350, comes standard with a turbocharged 2.0L inline-4, but it’s far from basic, offering 255 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque taking you from 0-60 in seven seconds—and 7.1 seconds for the 4MATIC®® model.

Step it up to the 2020 GLE 450 4MATIC®® and enjoy the powerful turbocharged 3.0L inline-6 getting 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. This SUV offers an impressive 5.5-second acceleration from 0-60.

The top-of-the-lineup 2020 GLE 580 4MATIC®® gives drivers an exciting turbocharged 4.0L V8 that harnesses 483 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, taking you from 0-60 in an exhilarating 4.9 seconds.

Plus, both the inline-6 and the V8 engines include an electric enhancement to give you even more efficiency on every drive: the EQ Boost Integrated Starter-Generator seamlessly generates 21 horsepower while allowing for gas-free coasting and lower emissions.

New-to-the-GLE Suspension Features

If you’re already a fan of Mercedes-Benz, you know the 4MATIC®®-equipped vehicles are quite capable, gripping the road and adding confidence to your travels by varying the torque from front to rear.

For 2020, the GLE is taking things to the next level, with new E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL. Combined with the AIRMATIC®® air suspension system, this system can control the spring and damper forces and ride height at each wheel individually. Add in the ability to scan the road ahead, lean into curves, and rock the vehicle out of sand traps, and you have a more than competent off-road SUV.

The E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL gives you 11 inches of maximum ground clearance, and the off-road suspension package includes skid plates to protect the undercarriage on your adventures. With a free-driving mode in addition to the other preset modes, you’ll be able to fully control each wheel and even bounce the GLE out of ruts.
