Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class – SUV and Coupe

new Mercedes X6

For 2016 Mercedes-Benz will have two versions of the mid-sized SUV. The GLE-Class SUV and Coupe. Pictured above is the current ML-Class and the GLE-coupe. Similar size, but very different styling.

2016 GLE-Class SUV

This is a mid-cycle refresh to the current M-Class. There are upgrades to the interior and exterior but it will be very recognizable as the traditional SUV. It will be available in many variants: GLE300d, GLE350, GLE400, GLE550e, GLE63 AMG

2016 GLE-Class Coupe

This is a whole new version of the mid-size SUV. This GLE had coupe-like lines, AMG styling and is meant to stand out. The GLE-Coupe will only be available as the GLE450 AMG Sport and the GLE63 AMG.

Does that help? There seems to be a lot of confusion about why we are turning our ML into a coupe! We aren’t…there are two!

Here it is! The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class stopped by for a training class this week. It was my first opportunity to see the new coupe version of the soon to be refreshed M-Class (now GLE-Class).

GLE ML X6

I was not sure I was going to like this model as I DO NOT like similar SUV/Coupe models on the market now. However, now that I have seen it in person it is definitely growing on me! This car is bigger than the pictures make it seem. The rear end comes almost to my shoulder!

The interior is beautiful! It is a very sculpted and coupe-like cockpit with very elegant finishes. My trainer specifically pointed out that the matte finish wood reduces interior glare.

So, there you have it! have you been looking for a super powerful SUV? With coupe styling? And 22″ wheels? I’ll have it starting in August!

What’s a GLE? The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class is coming!

The GLE-Class is replacing the M-Class for 2016. There will be both a “normal” version and the “coupe” version. Here is a good video featuring the “normal” version.

2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe

Next year Mercedes-Benz will be introducing the GLE-Class Coupe. What’s that, you say? Well, the GLE name means that it is the midsize SUV, currently known as the M-Class, and the coupe designation is like the 4-door coupe styling in the CLS-Class and the CLA-Class.

All of the details are now in the Future Vehicles Section at MBUSA.com. It is scheduled to arrive in the US in August of 2015.
