Highlights of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE 400 4MATIC®

As you’ll notice from the table above, the GLE 400 4MATIC® is truly a powerhouse, coming in at a starting MSRP of $10,000 less than the Cayenne base model. You might think you’re getting less quality with the price difference, but if you step inside you’ll see that that’s not the case. For example, it exceeds performance expectations with similar horsepower and more torque while offering an extra transmission speed that makes gear changes more seamless compared to the Cayenne. The GLE 400 4MATIC® also comes with 20 extra cubic feet of cargo space, which is ideal for drivers who want more room for passengers or for extra equipment when they go on vacations and whatnot. Inside the GLE 400 4MATIC®, of course, lies a bounty of comfort and convenience features like heated/ventilated front seats, 3-zone climate control, a panorama roof, hands-free Bluetooth® interface, and much more.
