The Mercedes-Benz M-Class first entered production in 1997. The model has also been known as the ML for some time.

However, it goes by another name now. In 2015, Mercedes-Benz renamed the model to the GLE-Class. This name indicates that it is a part of Mercedes’ SUV lineup, while being in line with the E-Class in terms of the overall Mercedes family.

This name change was also done as a slight conflict with rival BMW because of the M badging used for their high-performance models.

During its time on the market, there have been four generations to be released. The latest version made its debut in 2019.

Competition for the model typically comes from the Audi Q7, BMW X5, Range Rover Sport, and Volkswagen Touareg. However, there are plenty of others in the heavily packed class these days.

Trim levels for the M-Class typically consist of four levels. These start with the base rear-wheel-drive 350 model, followed by 350, 450, and premium 580, all of which come with their 4MATIC and 4MATIC+ drive systems.

There have also been a number of high-performance versions that are kitted out by AMG.

Petrol engines have ranged from a 2.0 L inline-4 up to the bi-turbocharged 5.5 L V8 engine found in the AMG models. Most of these engines are turbocharged, but newer models are limited to a bi-turbo 4.0 L V8 with mild hybrid technology.

Diesel options have traditionally been significantly smaller. These engines range from a turbocharged 2.0 L inline-4 up to a 3.0 L inline-6 version.

Mercedes-Benz even introduced hybrid powertrains much earlier than most of its competitors. The M-Class first used this in its second generation which was released in 2005.
