Highlights in the 2020 GLE

The GLE goes above and beyond when it comes to luxury. For starters, it offers much more versatility than the MDX. There are two available engine options for 2020, and the engine specs for performance-enhanced 2021 AMG® GLE SUVs have already been released (there were also three different AMG® GLE SUVs available for the 2019 model year). That offers more utility and capabilities when it comes to towing and hauling, and also offers a sportier driving experience for drivers who are looking for such.

The interior profile of the GLE is a compelling one. The driver-centered cockpit houses all the driving information as well as infotainment needs with features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, available Wi-Fi, a wireless smartphone charger, and the all-new Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) system. Unavailable in the MDX, this voice-command multimedia system allows drivers to request certain music, directions, or even generic information like news or sports scores. The GLE also offers a spacious 38.2 cubic ft of cargo space with no seats folded flat, while the MDX only offers 15.8 cubic ft of space in the trunk area.

The perfect SUV may not exist, but the GLE puts everything in place so you’ll have comfort and convenience right at your fingertips like no other midsize SUV out there.
