New for 2018

The only significant change on the 2018 GLE-Class is an increase of horsepower on the 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine found in the GLE43, from 362 hp to the current model's 385 hp. Also, with the GLE43 in the lineup, the GLE400 model is gone.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The GLE-Class is positioned above the GLA-Class, GLC-Class, but below the GLS-Class. The GLE-Class is also offered in coupe-like SUV form—that model is positioned above the GLC-Class Coupe in size and price.

2018 GLE350 (and GLE350 4Matic): The GLE-Class' base trim comes equipped with Dynamic Select drive modes, the Active Curve system, 19-inch wheels, aluminum roof rails, all-wheel drive (4Matic model), Nappa leather-wrapped steering wheel, interior LED lighting, Eucalyptus wood trim, Active Brake Assist (automatic emergency braking), Attention Assist, Pre-Safe, rearview camera, 10-way power driver's seat, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, power sunroof, power liftgate, MB-Tex upholstery, an 8.0-inch display screen with a central controller, and dual USB audio ports.

2018 GLE550e 4Matic: Slotting above the GLE350 is the GLE550e that comes standard with a plug-in hybrid powertrain, a four-mode hybrid drive mode selector, a radar-based regenerative braking system, topstitched dashboard trim, side-mirror logo projectors, blind-spot assist, lane keep assist, leather upholstery, a 115-volt power outlet, Comand infotainment system with navigation and a touchpad controller, a Harman/Kardon audio system, dual USB audio ports with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and an in-dash DVD/CD player.

2018 AMG GLE43: The entry-level AMG model is the GLE43, which comes equipped with an AMG-enhanced engine, AMG Performance-focused 4Matic all-wheel-drive system, AMG Dynamic Select drive modes, AMG Sport Airmatic suspension with adaptive damping, aluminum paddle shifters, an AMG Sport exhaust system, AMG body styling, Gloss Black exterior accents, 20-inch AMG five-spoke wheels, a Sport steering wheels, AMG instrument cluster, dual-chrome exhaust tips, and aluminum interior trim.

2018 AMG GLE63: The next step up is the AMG GLE63 that features a hand-crafted AMG engine, an AMG high-performance braking system, 20-inch AMG 10-spoke wheels, AMG Nappa leather-wrapped performance steering wheel, dual chrome AMG exhaust tips, multi-color interior ambient lighting, active LED headlights, Parking Pilot self-parking system, a surround-view camera system, heated and cooled front cup holders, Exclusive Nappa leather upholstery, and a 10-way power passenger's seat.

2018 AMG GLE63 S: The range-topping trim adds a more powerful AMG engine, 21-inch AMG cross-spoke silver wheels, AMG Nappa/Dinamica performance steering wheel, and 14-way power AMG Sport front seats with heated and ventilated controls.

Notable features for the non-AMG models include wood/leather steering wheel, Natural Grain Brown Ash wood trim, designo black Dinamica headliner, Distance Pilot Distronic and Steering Pilot (adaptive cruise control with lane centering), cabin-air purification system, multicontour front seats with massaging feature, and designo Expresso Brown exclusive Nappa leather. AMG models are available with AMG Dynamic Performance exhaust, AMG carbon fiber and black piano lacquer interior trim, and the AMG Night package.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The GLE-Class utilizes one of the few non-turbo engines left in Mercedes' portfolio, a 3.5-liter V-6 found in the base GLE350 (rear-wheel drive) and GLE350 4Matic that produces 302 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. The GLE350 comes with an EPA rating of 18/23 mpg city/highway with rear-wheel drive and 18/22 mpg with all-wheel drive. The GLE550e 4Matic plug-in is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine and an electric motor for a combined output of 436 hp and 479 lb-ft and delivers 20/23 mpg, 43 mpge with help from the plug-in hybrid system, and can run on all-electric power for up to 8 miles. The AMG GLE43 sports a twin-turbo V-6 that now produces 385 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque and is rated at 17/23 mpg. The AMG GLE63 and range-topping GLE63 S pack a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8 that produces 550 hp, 516 lb-ft in GLE63 form with 577 hp and 561 lb-ft if you go for the S model. The engine delivers 14/18 mpg in both power outputs. With the exception of the rear-drive GLE350 base model, all models come standard with 4Matic all-wheel drive. The GLE AMG43 is the only GLE model to utilize the nine-speed automatic, the remaining models use a seven-speed automatic.

Safety

The GLE-Class is considered a 2017 Top Safety Pick+ from the IIHS (the highest designation) because the crossover received the highest rating of Good in all five conducted crash evaluations and the highest score of Superior for front crash prevention. The GLE completely avoided 12- and 25-mph frontal collisions thanks to the optional Active Braking Assist with Cross-Traffic Function that is found in the available Premium 3 package. Unfortunately, the standard Active Braking Assist system did not properly warn the driver of a possible collision and the IIHS did not test this system's emergency automatic braking feature. Additional driver assist safety features found in the Premium 3 package include Active Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keep Assist, Active LED headlights, Adaptive Highbeam Assist, Parking Pilot (self-parking system), Distance Pilot Distronic with Steering Pilot (adaptive cruise control with lane centering), a surround view camera system, speed limit assist, and Pre-Safe Plus (applies brakes after accident). Standard features include Active Brake Assist, Attention Assist (drowsy driver alert), trailer stability assist, crosswind assist, blind-spot monitoring, lane keep warning, rearview camera, and Pre-Safe (pre-collision preparation).

Utility (Cargo Space and Interior Room)

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE350 (also 4Matic) and GLE550e offer 38.2 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats up and 80.3 cubic feet with the seats folded down. That's a decent amount of cargo room but slightly less than the three-row Volvo XC90's 85.7 cubic feet of total cargo room. Front seat legroom measures in at 40.3 inches and 38.4 inches for the rear seats.

Technology

The GLE-Class comes standard with an 8.0-inch center display with an infotainment system controlled by a rotary central controller, Bluetooth, dual USB audio ports, remote start with cabin preconditioning, and a household-type 115-volt power outlet for electronics. Available technology features include the Comand infotainment system with a touchpad rotary controller, navigation, a rear seat entertainment system featuring two LCD monitors, a 14-speaker 900-watt Bang & Olufsen BeoSound premium sound system, a 4G LTE WiFi hotspot, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and adaptive cruise control that can come to a complete stop, with lane centering. The various mbrace packages offer services including turn-by-turn route guidance through mbrace Concierge and SOS/Emergency Call through mbrace Secure.

What We Think

In 2016 Motor Trend SUV of the Year testing, the GLE-Class was a finalist. We liked the many engine choices, off-road capability, and on-road behavior, but felt the new "Coupe" model was impractical and had strange styling. We liked the power from the turbocharged V-6 and V-8 engines but wished the new nine-speed automatic was used in all models. Hurting the GLE is its somewhat boring interior: "Same old but slightly more refined Benz interior, particularly the center stack. Time to try something new, guys."

At the end of our First Drive review of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class lineup, we said that "the GLE, no matter what flavor of powertrain a person selects, is the complete package. It still has the utility to carry all the gear for a hockey team, but it does so with more luxury than before. It can get the groceries, deliver the kids to school, and still be ready for a road trip. That's the real power to this SUV, it does everything buyers in this segment will want."
