Mercedes-Benz GLE Performance Features

  • GLE 4MATIC® AWD – On the Mercedes-Benz GLE, 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive allows for exceptionally precise handling and more satisfying acceleration. On GLE 350 models, it splits torque 50:50 between the front and rear. With the GLE 450, 4MATIC® AWD responds intelligently, shifting up to 100% of torque between your front and rear axles.
  • DYNAMIC SELECT® – With the press of a button, your Mercedes-Benz GLE performance can adapt to any one of five specialized driving modes. In addition to ECO, COMFORT, SPORT, and SPORT+ modes, a customizable INDIVIDUAL option allows you to set the specs exactly as you prefer them.
  • 9G-TRONIC® Automatic Transmission – In every Mercedes-Benz GLE, a standard 9G-TRONIC® AT delivers smooth, precision shifts that have been optimized for efficiency and power. At any moment, you can use the Fingertip shift paddles to take control on the highways of Fairfax or Leesburg.
  • E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL® – For 2020, the GLE performance allows you to go farther, and more confidently, than ever before. This is the first year that GLE 450 models have featured E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL®, which can adjust spring forces, damping, and ride height individually for each wheel.
