The future Mercedes-Benz GLE shows its face in a video teaser, inching closer to its soon-to-happen debut. The Audi Q7 and the BMW X5 are waiting for their updated rival.
A short video shows the light signature of the future SUV together with the radiator grille, divided by a single louver that supports the three-pointed star logo. The daytime running lights, similar to those of the E-Class sedan, and the wide air intakes, accompanied by the prominent front bumper, reflect a sporty and muscular design.
No new information surfaces, but we already know that the GLE will feature a more modern design, in the attempt to keep up with the company’s other new models. The Benz SUV is set to receive a brand-new cabin, with the company’s latest infotainment system MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) controlling the main functions.
A new three spoke steering wheel, a newly-developed 4-wheel drive system and new advanced safety features will make it one of the smartest premium SUVs out there.
No word on engines, but we can assume that a 3.0-liter straight-six with EQ Boost technology will be available, together with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbodiesel, the latter coming to the customers from Europe. AMG 53 and 4.0-liter V8-powered 63 and 63 S variants will hit the road later on. A GLE Coupe model is also in the cards and it has already been spotted testing on the Nurburgring.
