2019 Mercedes Benz Gle 43 Amg Coupe Redesign, Specs, and New Features – The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class can be outfitted to please nearly every luxury-SUV buyer. The New Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class has the family-hauling goods of a big wagon, without the usual SUV setbacks. It’s one of the brand’s best-selling models, and for good reason: The GLE is a safe bet, one with plenty of high-end features and a great range of available customization options.
The Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class is a mid-size luxury SUV that seats up to five people and is available in traditional SUV or four-door coupe form. It comes standard with a 302-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine and a seven-speed automatic transmission. Rear- and all-wheel-drive versions are offered, as well as performance-oriented AMG variants making as much as 577 hp. Competitors include the Lexus RX 350, Audi Q7 and BMW X5.

The Mercedes-Benz GLE offers a variety of powertrains from green-loving to power-forward. It earns a 4 out of 10 on our scale for its efforts. With its V-6 paired to a 7-speed auto, the GLE350 is able to achieve 18 mpg city, 23 highway, and 20 combined. Adding all-wheel drive dampens the fuel economy a bit to 18/22/19 mpg.
The turbocharged V-6 with 9-speed automatic in the Mercedes-AMG GLE43 combine for an EPA rating of 17/23/19 mpg. The range-topping AMG GLE63 and GLE63 S both check in at 14/18/15 mpg.
The four-door coupe body style is a twist on the traditional SUV look, but the design compromises visibility, backseat access and cargo space in the name of style. With a redesigned 2020 GLE-Class on the way, there’s a chance there may be deals on the 2019 version.
