The Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 4MATIC is powered by a 6-cylinder engine systematically electrified with 48-volt technology. Its performance data: 270 kW (367 hp) and 500 Nm of torque, with a further 250 Nm of torque and 16 kW/22 hp available via EQ Boost over short periods. The Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) is responsible for hybrid functions such as EQ Boost or energy recuperation, hence enabling very fuel-efficient driving.
With nine speeds, the advanced 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission offers a versatile range of ratios, for quick response and efficient, quiet cruising. Fingertip shift paddles and the modes of DYNAMIC SELECT let you take charge anytime.
DYNAMIC SELECT lets you alter the performance character of your GLE just by tapping a console switch. Driving modes from ECO to Sport to Off-Road to Comfort to Individual vary the throttle feel, shifting, suspension options and more to suit the conditions.
Lightweight, efficient 4MATIC® adds all-wheel driving confidence on slippery roads and in dry corners. Continually sending torque to the wheels that can use it best, the GLE 450 can further vary the torque from 0 to 100% front-to-rear
New for the GLE 450, optional E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL can control the spring and damping forces, as well as the ride height, individually at each wheel. It can also scan the road ahead, lean into curves, and even rock itself out of a sand trap.
