The 5 Most Important Innovations in the New GLE
This SUV trendsetter has been completely reconceived. Top innovations include:
E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL:
Fully networked hydropneumatic, active suspension on a 48-volt platform, for the first time in combination with a newly-developed air suspension. This is the only system in the market where the spring and damping forces can be individually controlled at each wheel. This means that it not only counteracts body roll, but also pitch and squat.
Active Stop-and-Go Assist:
This driver assistance system enables the GLE to recognize traffic jams at an early stage, actively supporting the driver in stop-and-go traffic up to approximately 37 mph.
Turn-off function of Active Brake Assist:
Now you can have the activation of Active Brake Assist with Cross-Traffic Assist when turning across the opposite lane. If there is a risk of collision when turning across the path of oncoming vehicles, the vehicle will be braked when traveling at low speeds.
Available for the first time on the GLE, fully variable all-wheel drive controls the torque distribution between the front and rear axle from 0-100% depending on the selected driving mode.
The new GLE has a much longer wheelbase (+3.1 inches / 80 mm), with corresponding interior spaciousness. Comfort is particularly enhanced by the fully adjustable second seat row, and a third seat row is also available as an option.
The new Mercedes- Benz GLE will celebrate its World Premiere at the Paris Motor Show this month and will go on sale at Mercedes-Benz of Coral Gables in 2019. To shop our current inventory of GLEs, please click here.
