Depending on model, up to six DYNAMIC SELECT modes can be called up using the Controller on the centre console. “Comfort” mode allows particularly balanced and efficient driving. In conjunction with the AIRMATIC package, “Sport” mode offers a more agile and dynamic configuration of the suspension, which is additionally lowered by 15 mm, sportily taut damper tuning, a more direct steering feel and changed shift points. “Individual” mode allows the driver to vary individual settings to suit their taste.
Power, refinement and efficiency – the new GLE 400 4MATIC with an output of 245 kW (333 hp) and a torque of 480 Nm masters all three disciplines. To further reduce both fuel consumption and emissions, the engines are equipped with ECO technology packages, comprising measures that lower friction and flow losses, reduce component weights and improve on-demand system control. Thrilling V8 performance comes in the shape of the new GLE 500 4MATIC with an output of 335 kW (455 hp) and a torque of 700 Nm.
Engineered for smoother, more efficient performance, the 7-speed automatic transmission features an electronic selector and sporty paddle shifters allowing complete control of gear changes without taking a hand from the leather -wrapped steering wheel.
