Mercedes-Benz GLE 4x4 to debut in New York, coming September

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled its M-Class-replacing GLE ahead of the SUV’s debut at the New York International Auto Show in April. The name change has been introduced to relate all Mercedes 4x4s to the G-Class, the iconic, boxy off-roader, with the ‘E’ at the end intended to reflect the SUV’s equivalent Mercedes passenger vehicle – in this case, the E-Class.

According to the Stuttgart-based company, the GLE’s main upgrades include a restyled exterior, improved fuel economy and a reduction in CO2 emissions and, for the first time in a Mercedes SUV, there will be a plug-in hybrid version to rival the recently announced Audi Q7 e-tron and BMW X5 xDrive 40e. The GLE 500 e4Matic uses a 3.0-litre, 333hp V6 petrol engine teamed with a 116hp electric motor, which allows for 18.5 miles of zero-emission driving at speeds of up to 80mph. Official combined fuel economy is 85.6mpg and CO2 emissions stand at 78g/km. Prices will be confirmed closer to its September arrival.
