The GLE was first released by Mercedes-Benz in 2015 as the successor to the M-Class. In fact, it is essentially a renamed version of the older model.
Conforming to the naming convention used for Mercedes SUVs, the GLE falls in line with the E-Class in terms of luxury and quality. This puts it as the second largest SUV in the German carmaker’s lineup, just under the GLS.
Since its release, there have been only two generations under its new name. The latest of these made its debut in 2019.
When speaking of any Mercedes offering, competition always comes from its Audi and BMW counterparts. In the case of the GLE, these are the Audi Q7 and BMW X5. The Volvo XC90 also comes to mind given the model’s huge success.
Trim levels for the model are linked to the engine choice, meaning there is essentially a different trim level for each engine. Of course, there is also the AMG version that is fitted with a powerful engine.
Mercedes has offered the model with various petrol and diesel engines. Petrol offerings have ranged from the significantly smaller 2.0 L inline-4 found in the latest iteration through to the bi-turbocharged 5.5 L V8 found in the previous generation.
Diesel engines have been much less varied, typically ranging between a 2.0 L inline-4 to a 3.0 L V6.
There has also been a plug-in hybrid offering in both generations. These have been based on the larger petrol and diesel engines.
Transmission options have consisted solely of automatic gearboxes. These include a 7-speed and 9-speed option, but the 7-speed was dropped with the release of the fourth generation.
