2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE.
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE is set to shake up the mid-size luxury SUV segment with a host of new technologies, updated powertrains, improved comfort, and upgraded design.
The previous-generation Mercedes-Benz GLE was among the most popular vehicles in its segment despite having been on the market for five years. The new GLE takes everything the previous model did well and improves it in every way.
Updated powertrains for the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE.
The new Mercedes-Benz GLE features a 2.0-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder as its base engine. Although you don’t expect to see a four-cylinder engine in a luxury mid-size SUV, it all starts to make sense when you get behind the wheel.
Sending 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels through Mercedes-Benz’ 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system, this engine provides all the quick accelerations at every RPM level that you’d want from your luxury SUV.
Its fuel economy numbers are better than any GLE before and are actually on par with some smaller cars available on the market. In other words, the 2.0-litre turbo available in the GLE gives you the power you’re looking for without sacrificing fuel economy.
If you’re looking for more power from your 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE, you can always check out the GLE 450. Featuring a turbocharged 3.0-litre inline-six as opposed to a traditional V6, the GLE 450 puts 362 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque at your disposal.
Better yet, this engine is aided by a 48-volt battery that features an overboost function. This adds 21 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque when needed. It also allows the GLE 450 to recuperate some of the energy generated while driving to power certain features, just like a hybrid engine.
