2018 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe (European model shown)

 

The popular GLE-Class SUV has always been the leader in family adventure. Its roots are from the original M-Class, the groundbreaking vehicle for Mercedes-Benz.

 

The GLE-Class is still breaking ground. While it is available in its traditional form – a five-passenger SUV with volumes of cargo space – there is another GLE to consider. It is something of a ground breaker itself.

 

The GLE Coupe adds another dimension to the story of this fine SUV. Its rakish body style offers a more sporting silhouette that encourages more fun while being practical.

 

Even better, our GLE Coupes are both AMG® models – the 385-horsepower AMG® GLE 43 and the 577-horsepower AMG® GLE 63 S. Each one is powered by a hand-built twin-turbocharged engine designed for maximum performance and excitement. The AMG® GLE 63 S is connected to the AMG® Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic transmission, while the AMG® GLE 43 offers the new AMG®-enhanced 9G-Tronic transmission.  Both models have AMG® Performance 4MATIC® all-wheel drive, distributing power on a 40:60 ratio between the front and rear axles.

 

Both AMG® GLE Coupes have a host of performance-oriented features for better stability and ride quality. The AMG® Sport Suspension integrates the Airmatic suspension system providing a balanced ride/handling package for optimal comfort even at higher speeds. The Active Dampening System, combined with the Active Curve System, adds to the AMG® Sport Suspension by adding more suspension control and a flatter run through the curves.

 

Because it is an AMG® model, there is no compromise inside the GLE Coupe. Choosing the AMG® Performance Studio Package adds a darker flair, highlighted with orange stitching on the black leather seats. The orange accents are seen on the outside with 21-inch alloy wheels and other exterior trim pieces. A GLE Coupe buyer has a choice of 11 color choices, including two designo® finishes. Interior choices range from a simple black motif to a mix of designo® two-tone leathers and a choice of trim finishes. Customers can also specify additional features, including a host of active safety features Mercedes-Benz is well-known for.

 

The GLE Coupe is a standout in its own right. Because they are available exclusively in AMG® models make it even more special. For the hottest SUV of its kind, look no further than Mercedes-Benz of Eugene – your specialist in AMG®-enhanced SUVs. Come drive one today!
