2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG® GLE 43 SUV a Performance Upgrade on GLE 400 Design
The 2017 AMG® GLE 43 SUV made January 31st, 2017 quite the memorable day in Mercedes-Benz history, the ninth model in the Mercedes-Benz AMG® 43 line complementing the athleticism of the automaker’s sleek gloss-black-trim, 4-door GLE 43 coupe with a set of performance features both an improvement upon the GLE 400 build and show-stopping in and of themselves. And we at Mercedes-Benz of St. Louis couldn’t wait to see what was under the hood.
The five-passenger GLE 43 SUV experience begins with its AMG®-enhanced 3.0L V6 biturbo powertrain. Quite the meaningful origin, given the engine’s sizable 362 horsepower and up to 384 lb-ft of torque – these sure put the drive to excel into the SUV’s AMG®-enhanced 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission and AMG® Performance 4MATIC® all-wheel drive, delivering finely tuned steering and precision handling. And with selectable Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Individual and Slippery modes, GLE 43’s AMG® Dynamic Select System makes it a snap to set suspension stiffness, shift points, throttle mapping and idle speed according to your driving style.
And where there’s punch, GLE 43 packs on the convenience amenities, too. Up to 38.2 cu. ft. of cargo space (up to 80.3 cu-ft with seats lowered), accessible from behind the rear seats via a standard power lift gate, provides plenty of capacity for the long haul. A power sunroof and heated front seats come standard in GLE 43, too, so you can enjoy the weather when it’s pleasant and a cozy cabin when it isn’t.
