The new Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé and Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupé are now available for order. First customers will get their new cars delivered in the spring of 2020.
For the beginning, two six-cylinder diesel engines and a high-performance in-line six-cylinder petrol engine bearing the AMG logo, will be available. The GLE 350 d 4MATIC Coupe, with 272 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque, comes with a starting price of 76,279 euros in Germany, VAT included, while the GLE 400 d 4MATIC Coupe, with 330 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque, starts at 81,634 euros. These are both compliant with the Euro 6d standards.
The AMG top-of-the-range variant, designated Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupe, powered by a 3.0-liter six-cylinder in-line engine with 48-volt technology, developing 435 horsepower, can be ordered with a starting price of 92,962.80 Euros. The car comes with variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+, all-wheel drive, the AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G 9-speed automatic transmission and the 60 mm shorter wheelbase compared with the SUV variant.
It can be easily identified thanks to its AMG-specific radiator grille, prominent powerdomes on the hood, the Mercedes star in a double ring, together with the striking “A-wing” in the AMG front apron. It runs on 20-inch alloy wheels with the AMG lettering as standard, but larger wheels of 20 and 22 inches are available on demand.
It also features AMG-specific drive programs and the AMG RIDE CONTROL+ air suspension with stabilizing, electro-mechanical AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL. The Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupe gets the optional AMG TRACK PACE function
The cars that made their debut this past summer measure 4939 mm in length and 2010 mm in width, being 39 mm longer and 7 mm wider than the predecessor. The wheelbase has also been extended by 20 mm, but staying 20 mm shorter than that of the standard GLE.
