The design of the new Mercedes-Benz GLE revealedSeptember 10, 2018
In the Web appeared a teaser and spy photos of new Mercedes-Benz GLE of a new generation. The public premiere of the model may take place next month.
A short teaser movie with the new GLE is published on the official pages of Mercedes-Benz in social networks. No details on the crossover of the next generation, the brand has not yet reported, the Germans only noted that the model is “completely rethought”. It is assumed that the public debut of the novelty will be held within the framework of the Paris Motor Show, which will open in early October this year. Although it is possible that the first show will be held this month.
Meanwhile, Instagram user under the nickname frankfurtcarspotter published photos of Mercedes GLE of the new generation practically without camouflage. Judging by the “inflated” bumper and radiator grille with a brightly expressed “dotted” pattern, these frames feature an all-terrain vehicle with the AMG package.
According to preliminary data, GLE was transferred to a new modular platform MHA (Mercedes High Architecture) – it is adapted for crossovers, platform MRA, which is the basis of the latest E-Class and S-Class. The all-terrain vehicle has become larger than its predecessor: the length of the new generation model has grown somewhere by 80 mm and has reached about 4,930 mm. It is expected that the base cross will be offered with a spring suspension, and for more expensive versions, airbags are provided. In addition, as an option for GLE, you can order an Off-Road package with a demultiplier.
The line of crossover motors is likely to include in-line six 3.0 new generation, familiar from other models of Mercedes-Benz, and the AMG-version will probably retain V8. Most likely, GLE will be available with a nine-speed automatic transmission 9G-Tronic.
Orders for the crossover can begin to take already this year.
