The Mercedes-Benz GLE is ready for some driving. Few privileged automotive journalists from all over the world are already testing the car that played a major part in the blockbuster “Jurassic World”. Next week, Mercedesblog.com is going to take you on board the GLE. But before that, we rub our hands in anticipation.
We already got our hands on the pictures and videos shot both on the Austrian impeccable highways and on the steep terrain of the Apls in the Kitzbuhel area. But you are soon going to see brand new original ones, when we’ll be testing the GLE ourselves, by the beginning of next week, 29-30th of June, to be more precise.
The latest SUV from Stuttgart, the Mercedes-Benz GLE, steps up into the sports utility vehicle range to replace the ML and it decodes the future of the tall ride cars. As for the driving, our lips are sealed until next week, when we’ll get behind the wheel of all the models with or without the coupe tag, with or without the AMG beast reputation.
But before we put the Mercedes-Benz GLE to the test, we let you enjoy the billion pictures (well, not quite a billion) and the GLE in motion.

Here is what the people in Mercedes-Benz say about the GLE:
Professor Doctor Thomas Weber, Member of the Daimler Board of Management, responsible for Group Research and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars Development: “Our GLE Coupé combines typical coupé attributes such as sportiness, dynamism and agility with the self-assured presence, versatility and ruggedness of an SUV”.
Ola Källenius, Member of the Daimler Board of Management responsible for Marketing & Sales Mercedes‑Benz Cars: “For Mercedes-Benz, the GLE Coupé is the trailblazer for a versatile vehicle class. It will enable us to win new customers for our brand”.
Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Daimler AG: “The GLE Coupé faithfully follows our iconic Mercedes-Benz coupé design idiom – enhanced by styling features from the SUV sector. With its extreme proportions it embodies sensual clarity and represents modern luxury plus superior sportiness”.
So stay tuned and drive the GLE with us next week, all right?
