Mercedes-Benz has thoroughly revised its best-seller in the SUV segment with the new GLE and AMG GLE 63, a replacement model of the current M-Class. Highlights of the new GLE include considerably more appealing front and tail ends and new benchmarks in emissions and drive systems.
The new Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 4MATIC is now stronger and more appealing with an expanded model line-up and even more power. Following the introduction of the new naming logic, the successor of the successful Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG is now called the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63.
The AMG 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8 engine is now more powerful than before. In addition to the basic variant developing 410 kW (557 HP), there is now also the highly sporty S-Model to choose from which is rated at 430 kW (585 HP).
The chassis in the new AMG models have been revised to deliver even better driving dynamics and agility. The throttle response of the engine and the shift times of the transmission are now on a new, even sportier level, which hallmarks AMG Driving Performance. With the characteristic AMG family face featuring an “A-wing” and twin-blade radiator grille, the power SUV also has a more dynamic appearance than before.
The new GLE-Class is expected to arrive on Australian shores later this year, most likely in the fourth quarter.
