2017 Mercedes GLE Overview (2)

 

There’s a GLE for practically every purpose—if you can’t find one to suit your needs, well, you may be beyond the help of mortals. The GLE350 boasts a 302-hp V-6 with rear-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive. The GLE400 4MATIC has all-wheel drive and a twin-turbo V-6 good for 329 hp. The GLE300d 4MATIC is the diesel version, with a 201-hp turbodiesel four and all-wheel drive. And for the first time in a Benz SUV, there’ll be a plug-in hybrid: the GLE550e 4MATIC with a total of 436 hp.
