What You Will Like

The GLE is a mid-sized luxury SUV that competes with vehicles such as the BMW X5 and the Audi Q7. Starting at around $52,000, the GLE comes in a large variety of different flavors, offering everything from a relatively fuel efficient diesel, to a 500+ horsepower. Quality lives up to the usual Mercedes high standards with doors that close with a satisfying clunk and a general feeling of vault-like security. It all goes towards giving the GLE the luxurious look and feel that Mercedes is well renowned for.

What's New For 2016

The Mercedes-Benz M-Class gets a major update and a name change for this year. From 2016 on, it will go by its new name, the GLE. Beyond a change in nomenclature, the GLE gets a new front fascia that echoes the rest of the Mercedes-Benz lineup, giving the GLE more brand continuity. New taillights in the back also improve the styling, leaving the GLE with clean, contemporary looks. The biggest change however, is a brand new coupe version. With low slung styling and powerful performance oriented engine options, the GLE Coupe should be a good match for anyone looking for a sporty, yet practical ride that has no problems conquering the elements.

Loading Comparison...


What was the M-Class (ML350, ML400, etc.) has been renamed GLE for the 2016 model year. This third-generation product was introduced for the 2012 model year, so it is now going into its fourth model year. Besides being renamed, it has been revised for 2016 and the lineup has been expanded to include a sporty new GLE Coupe.

Sounds confusing, but it’s all part of Mercedes-Benz’s decision to give its vehicles unified model designations. Launching the Coupe positions the GLE into closer alignment with BMW’s shapely X5 and X6.

Apart from the addition of the Coupe, the GLE has been refreshed for 2016 with a revised instrument panel and subtle exterior styling. The more pronounced front end displays closer kinship to styling of other Mercedes-Benz models. Cabin appointments have adopted infotainment elements from sedans. New trim options include novel woodgrains and carbon fiber.

The 2016 GLE includes gasoline, hybrid, plug-in hybrid, diesel, and AMG versions. Diesels, formerly dubbed BlueTec, now get a d suffix. Hybrid models get an h, and plug-in hybrids an e.

The GLE300d comes with a 2.1-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine rated at 201 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. A normally aspirated 302-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6 goes into the GLE350, with rear- or 4MATIC all-wheel drive.

The all-wheel-drive GLE400 4MATIC gets a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6, generating 329 horsepower. Each of those engines mates with a 7-speed automatic transmission.

The new GLE550e plug-in hybrid has a 329-horsepower, direct-injected 3.5-liter V6 with a hybrid module, for total output of 436 horsepower. Able to travel up to 19 miles on electricity alone, it has four driving modes. Recharging its 8.8-kwh battery at 220 volts takes about two hours.

AMG GLE63’s 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 develops 550 horsepower. Acceleration to 60 mph occurs as quickly as 4.2 seconds. Tow ratings for the GLE are as high as 7,700 pounds.

Two powertrains are offered for the GLE Coupe, both with 4MATIC four-wheel drive. The GLE450 AMG 4MATIC Coupe has a twin-turbo V6 rated at 362 horsepower and 384 pound-feet, with a 9-speed automatic. The GLE63 S 4MATIC Coupe gets a 577-horsepower, 5.5-liter V8 engine and 7-speed automatic.

GLE models may be fitted with COMAND connectivity and infotainment, displayed on an 8-inch screen. Harman Kardon and Bang & Olufsen audio systems are on the availability list as well as a rear-seat DVD entertainment system. A Parking package adds parking assist and surround-view cameras.


The 2016 GLE350 ($51,100) has the 302-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6 and comes with heated power front seats, a power steering column, auto-dimming mirrors, Dynamic Select modes, keyless start with keypad, and a power liftgate. MB-Tex vinyl seating surfaces are standard, with leather an option. GLE350 4MATIC ($53,600) substitutes all-wheel drive for the standard GLE350 rear-drive layout.

GLE300d 4MATIC ($52,500) gets the 2.1-liter diesel engine and all-wheel drive.

GLE400 4MATIC ($64,600) has a 329-horsepower, 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 and all-wheel drive.

GLE550e a plug-in hybrid with a 329-horsepower V6 engine, battery pack and hybrid module, for 436-horsepower total output.

AMG GLE63 4MATIC ($99,950) unleashes a 550-horsepower V8 engine with 7-speed automatic transmission. AMG editions have their own unique content, including aluminum trim and intensely bolstered, perforated-leather sport seats. AMG GLE63 S 4MATIC ($107,100) gets a 557-horsepower version of the V8 engine.

GLE450 AMG 4MATIC Coupe ($65,100) is equipped with the 362-horsepower, 3.0-liter V6 engine and 9-speed automatic. A Stop/Start feature is included, along with a power liftgate, heated front seats, COMAND navigation, and Attention Assist. AMG GLE63 S 4MATIC Coupe ($109,300) has the 577-horsepower V8 and 7-speed automatic, with all-wheel drive. Nappa leather upholstery 14-way power front seats, and 22-inch wheels are standard.

Safety features include active cruise control with steering assist, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, lane-departure warning, and forward-collision warning with automatic braking.


Mercedes-Benz has given this utility vehicle a more refined feel and look. That includes a more road-oriented, wider stance and a more carlike appearance.

Though its M-Class foundation remains, new front styling for 2016 features a drawn-back air dam and sculpted fenders. Sportier details are evident throughout. Despite being more rounded, the 2016 GLE grille comes across as more imposing. Metal side steps and larger wheels add a dressier tone, while LED lighting sets a modern theme.

The GLE Coupe is a dramatically different interpretation. Instead of remaining largely level past the rear seats, the roofline suggests the arc of a French Curve, meeting a lipped spoiler built into the rear hatch.


Little has changed dramatically inside, though details help align this SUV with other Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Regardless of model, materials and comfort are superb.

Excellent seats are soft and nicely contoured, yet long-haul supportive. The SUV’s second row can accommodate taller adults, though three across won’t be totally comfortable. Rear seatbacks adjust, and when up, the cargo space can yield more than 36 cubic feet.

Revamped sport seats, freestanding infotainment screens, and restyled, somewhat smaller steering wheels help create a sportier ambiance. The COMAND controller is housed in the center console, with its touchpad above. We’re still not fans of screen-based COMAND, which demands too much looking at the screen.

GLE Coupes convey a sportier, lower-slung look, thanks to their downward-arcing roofline. As expected, a price must be paid. Entry is easy enough and front legroom is decent, but headroom is lacking. Backseat space is skimpy. The flat cargo floor is low, but long and wide.

Driving Impressions

Tight, quiet, isolated is our impression of ride quality for the GLE. The standard suspension not only provides good comfort, but responds well when pushed into corners.

There’s a big difference between modes with the available adaptive damping system and air suspension. Comfort provides a more traditional luxury-car ride, while Sport has a crisper feel, with slightly more harshness. Configured for optimum traction in a given situation, the modes now control chassis, powertrain, steering, suspension settings and engine sounds. AMG models add a Sport-plus mode.

Ride quality in all versions is quiet and refined. Steering tends to require more small adjustments than we’d like in Comfort mode, while the Sport mode feels more easygoing.

Considering its rugged ability, the GLE performs remarkably well on the road. Active anti-roll bars offer even more impressive roadholding, with some sacrifice in ride quality. Versions meant for off-roading get an Offroad-plus package, with a locking differential, reduction gear, plus an extended-range air suspension.

Fuel economy is appealing in the GLE300d, which accelerates from 0-60 mph in an estimated 8.9 seconds. The turbodiesel doesn’t sound as smooth as some might expect from a Mercedes-Benz, but it reaches speed easily, without downshifts.

We rank the gasoline 3.5-liter among the best luxury V6 engines. An evenly spaced powerband makes it feel sprightly from a standing start or when passing.

With its 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8, the Mercedes-AMG GLE63 reaches 60 mph in as little as 4.2 seconds. The Mercedes-AMG GLE450 4MATIC Coupe has a twin-turbo V6 and 9-speed automatic, which performs flawlessly, but engine noise might be an issue with the GLE450. While the GLE550e offers strong performance, its powertrain doesn’t feel quite as perfectly coordinated.


The GLE comprises such a wide array of models, from the extravagant AMG GLE63, to the efficiency-minded GLE300d. Even on lower-level versions, standard equipment is extensive, including impressive safety features (either standard or optional). The strong, fuel-efficient diesel is a tempting choice.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
