Mercedes-Benz is back with a bang with the all-new GLE and GLE Coupé, two versatile models designed to conquer any terrain and elevate your driving experience to the next level

Mercedes-Benz introduces the distinguished GLE and GLE Coupé to its illustrious fleet. These two automotive masterpieces effortlessly straddle the realms of versatility and sophistication, making them ideal companions for family-oriented excursions and leisurely pursuits. With a strong focus on long-distance voyages and transporting loads, these vehicles have been meticulously engineered to surpass all expectations.

“The GLE has gone through a thorough update from the inside out, surpassing benchmarks that the previous generation set in 2018,” remarked Claudius Steinhoff, president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Singapore. “With an updated powertrain that’s now electrified, luxurious appointments from the Mercedes-Maybach GLS and Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and a bevy of connectivity upgrades through the latest iteration of MBUX, owners of the new GLE can look forward to every journey—even over challenging terrain.”

Step inside, and you’ll be enveloped in opulence that echoes the regal Mercedes-Maybach GLS and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The centre and side air vents, previously edged back, now gleam with a galvanised metal finish like the Mercedes-Maybach GLS. The GLE and GLE Coupé also offer a selection of tasteful colour schemes, including the catalana beige/black combination for the GLE SUV and the indulgent bahia brown/black option, available for both the GLE SUV and GLE Coupé.

Don’t be fooled by the lavish interior, though. These beasts are ready for rugged terrain. Under the hood, the GLE and GLE Coupé roar to life with an updated 48-volt mild hybrid technology. And with 4MATIC all-wheel drive as standard, you’ll conquer any road, from the asphalt jungles to off-road terrains on gradients of up to a hundred per cent. You’ll find a reliable 320 kW 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder engine with twin turbochargers. Notably, the AMG team has boosted the maximum torque from 520 Nm to an impressive 560 Nm, resulting in more responsive and agile performance. And when it comes to acceleration, the car now sprints from zero to 100 km in just 5.0 seconds. This cutting-edge technology ensures that you’re not just driving a car; you’re piloting a force of nature.

To make it easier to navigate off-road terrains, the Off-Road Engineering Package further equips you with an underride guard, AIRMATIC air suspension, and 30 millimetres of additional ground clearance. The Off-Road Mode in the MBUX system offers a ‘transparent bonnet’ function, granting a virtual view under the front of the vehicle, ensuring that you can better spot large stones or potholes in the path. You’ll never miss a beat while conquering the great outdoors. Moreover, an impressive Burmester® surround sound system, now enhanced with Dolby Atmos immersive audio, treats you to a sensational auditory experience. Boasting 13 speakers and a powerful 590-watt output, the sound system elevates the driving journey, your soundtrack will be as electrifying as the ride itself.
