ML and GLE comparison

Are you ready to be super-knowledgeable about the latest Mercedes-Benz models? Now you’ll be able to tell the ML from the GLE SUV and Coupe! The 2016s have arrived and I am excited to introduce you to them.

ML and GLE comparison

From the front: Count the grille slats. The 2015 ML350 has 3, the GLE350 has two and the GLE450 has one.

GLE profile

The noses have a slightly different profile. The headlights have changed from the 15 to the 16.

ML and GLE interiorThe steering wheel and infotainment screen are the obvious interior differences.

GLE coupe vs sedan

The 15 ML has a clear portion in the middle of the tail light and the 2016 has the clear portion at the bottom.

The coupe is pretty easy to pick out!

I have all three available now at Atlanta Classic Cars. Come see which Mercedes-Benz is right for you!

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV Arrives at Atlanta Classic Cars!

It’s here! The updated mid-sized SUV, now known as the GLE, has arrived! Our first shipment has been unloaded with two more on the way. I’ll get it posed for some good side-by-side pictures soon but here is a quick first round. I love the new Cardinal Red paint!

Mercedes-Benz Releases 2016 Models!

The 2016 launch schedule spans April through October this year, with some exciting releases due this month!

At the end of July we saw our first 2016 S-Classes, CLS-Classes and GL-Classes.

August will bring the new GLE SUV and GLE coupe! Stay tuned for more side-by-side comparisons!

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!

Mercedes X6 competitor

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.

This new model will be a bi-turbo V6 with a long list of standard features and have improved fuel economy over the current V8. The only V8 variant for the US will be the ML63 AMG which will be manufactured in very limited numbers for 2015.

2015 GL450 New V6 biturbo Engine – 362 Horsepower, 406 lb/ft Torque

I just received an update on the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GL450 and the latest information says:

“New 3.0L V6 biturbo engine in GL450 – same hp, same torque, improved Fuel Economy!”

The current 2014 GL450 is listed at 362 horsepower and 406 lb/ft of torque. That is a heck of a V6!

So, is this the same engine that will be in the new ML400? No word yet…but it seems likely!
