What's New For The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE?

The 2020 GLE-Class has been fully redesigned, which means there are a lot of big changes for this luxury SUV. The GLE-Class is both longer and wider than before, which means more leg- and elbow-room for all. You can now add third-row seating to accommodate a big family, with space for up to seven passengers.

You'll also find two new engine options, both of which provide impressive power and a smooth, refined ride. The E-Active Body Control suspension makes you feel like you're floating on air. Inside, the newly redesigned GLE features a new center console and the latest infotainment gear. And, like one would expect from a Mercedes-Benz SUV, the GLE is loaded with tech features you won't find anywhere else.

Which Features are Available on the GLE Class for 2020?

The new GLE interior features a new center console to keep you organized. Optional massaging seats is the perfect feature for long commutes and road trips. The massage functions even function alongside lighting and music beats to keep front passengers fully relaxed. Other upscale features include a leather-wrapped steering wheel and soft, supple leather seating. Interior air filtration and automatic climate control help maintain the perfect cabin atmosphere. With heated and ventilated front seats, you can quickly get comfortable, no matter how bad the weather is outside. The front cupholders are also heated and cooled, so even your beverage can maintain the perfect temperature.

When it comes to tech features, the GLE-Class doesn't miss a beat. This luxury SUV comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, vital smartphone integration technology that lets you access commonly used apps, hands-free. Every GLE-Class model comes standard with five USB ports, so passengers throughout the cabin can keep their devices fully operational. The MBUX infotainment system is also standard. There are two 12.3-inch screens, one for the driver info display and one for the infotainment interface. Both offer crisp, clear visuals, so they can be read with hardly a glance away from traffic.

A Perfect Blend of Power and Fuel Efficiency

The base GLE 350 and GLE 350 4Matic models feature a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. It makes 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, so you'll never feel short on speed. None that the GLE 4Matic comes standard with the Mercedes-Benz all-wheel drive system for a sportier performance.

When you upgrade to the GLE 450 4Matic, you'll find a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six under the hood. It pumps out 362 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, giving you the line's fastest ride. This inline-six engine is also paired with a 48-volt mild hybrid system that Mercedes is calling EQ Boost. This new system powers the starter and optional adaptive suspension. EQ Boosts adds an extra 21 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque for an incredibly sporty performance.
