Is the Mercedes-Benz GLE a Good SUV?

April 26th, 2021 by

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE is a great midsize luxury SUV! The GLE has maintained a top spot in consumer rankings because of its unmatched refined interior,  performance, and technology. Mercedes-Benz has enhanced the GLE lineup with performance-focused AMG® GLE 53 and 63 S variants. The GLE continues to offer optional third-row seating and the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system. All trim levels come standard with all-wheel drive with the exception of the GLE 350, with options of rear or all-wheel drive. What the GLE 350 lacks in standard features, it makes up for with its agility and aerodynamics. 

 

Design

 

The sophisticated and sporty GLE has a variety of trim options that set the standard for style. You can amplify your SUV’s athleticism through the AMG® Line Exterior and Night package options. This more spacious and sleek design includes subtle spoilers to help reduce noise and fuel consumption without degrading the outer appearance. With more room and seating for up to 7 passengers, you will be comfortable exiting and entering your GLE due to its power-folding technologies. Additionally, with the standard 64-color LED ambient lighting you will be able to create an atmosphere that suits your mood. The innovative design is not only evident on the exterior but follows suit within the interior. The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE is packed with numerous features that the driver and passengers are sure to enjoy.

 

Performance

 

The Mercedes-Benz name is directly associated with premium engineering, and this is found throughout the GLE mechanics. The 2021 GLE’s advanced performance, efficiency, handling, and capability aim to benefit future generations of SUVs. With the turbocharged torque and electric enhancement, you will be able to feel the muscle this car offers. Lower emissions and free coasting can seamlessly generate 21 horsepower. The GLE has engine options ranging from 255-hp through 483-hp and an electrified V8 engine. If you are looking for silence and efficiency while cruising, you will enjoy the 9G-Tronic automatic transmission. With up to 9 speed and fingertip shift paddles you will experience a dynamic driving experience. Dynamic Select allows you to alter the character of your Mercedes-Benz with multiple modes for different roads.

 

Innovative Technologies

 

The refinement and luxury of the GLE are on full display throughout both of its trim variations. The Mercedes-Benz user experience is high-tech with a human side. Speak naturally, and it listens, learns, and helps by finding destinations or controlling features. Using artificial intelligence, your words can turn into your GLE’s action. To start, just say “Hey, Mercedes-Benz it’s hot in here” or “I need to find a pizza place” and your GLE will turn up the temperature or set navigation. Additionally, a 12.3-inch touchscreen, console touchpad, and steering-wheel touch controls give you input choice beyond your voice. The new ionizer-purified air conditioning will help refresh your body and freshen the cabin. Standard features include wireless charging, LED headlights, 5 USB ports, and Sirius XM radio. Additionally, there are optional technologies including Head-Up Display, Air Balance Cabin Fragrance System, and AIRMATIC® suspension.
