2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE Performance Credentials
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE impresses from the first with its crisp styling, well-equipped and spacious interior, high-end technology, and top-of-the-line safety. What often catches prospective drivers off-guard is just how engaging 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE’s performance can be. It’s an authoritative SUV with room to spare and a taste for adventure, but it still performs with sedan-like precision and exceptional acceleration.
With up to 302 hp flowing as standard from a 3.5L V6 engine, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE moves with verve and vitality uncommon in such a commanding vehicle. Rapid-multispark ignition fires up to four times per millisecond, with Direct Injection fine-tuning its fuel spray in 0.1 milliseconds, so the vehicle can pride itself on a smooth and efficient ride. Power is refined via a seven-speed automatic transmission, with shift paddles included for manual-style control.
To upgrade from agile ride to track-like power, opt for one of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE AMG® engines:
- 385 hp and 385 lb-ft of torque from an AMG®-enhanced 3.0L V6 biturbo
- 550 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque from an AMG® 5.5L V8 biturbo
- 577 hp and 561 lb-ft of torque from an upgraded AMG® 5.5L V8 biturbo
It isn’t just artfully generated power that brings out the full potential of the new Mercedes-Benz GLE. You’ll also have the latest performance features working on your behalf, including:
- DYNAMIC SELECT: Cycle between Comfort, Sport, Slippery, Off-Road, and customizable Individual modes to configure throttle response, shift programming, ESP® and more for everything from a cruise between Kerrville and Fredericksburg to a trip into the great outdoors.
- AGILITY CONTROL®® Suspension: Each shock absorber is adjusted based on current drive style and changing road surface, forming up or reducing damping rates intelligently for a composed ride.
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE is exhilarating across the board, and yet it still makes room for those who want to focus uncompromisingly on performance by offering the following features:
- ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM: Active stabilizer bars at the front and rear vary roll stiffness for tighter maneuvering and cornering.
- Trailer Hitch (Class III): Includes wiring harnesses and Trailer Stability Assist, allowing towing of up to 6,600 pounds.
- 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive: Distributes torque to the wheels for all-weather confidence and a nimble dry-road ride.
AMG® models naturally call upon performance systems sourced straight form the cutting edge, including:
- AMG®-Enhanced Nine-Speed Transmission
- AMG® Sport Suspension
- Adaptive Damping System
- AMG® Sport Exhaust System
