For the 2018 Mondial de Paris, where he completed his first tour, the new Mercedes GLE was equipped only a 450 4Matic version, armed with a powerful six-cylinder petrol engine of 367 hp and one 300d Diesel, equipped with a four-cylinder with 245 hp (read our article). If the range is soon to be expanded to include a plug-in hybrid variant, thanks to the care of the AMG home accessories, the GLE will also be active.
In memory of, The old model was available in three AMG versions : 43 AMG of 390 hp, 63 AMG of 557 hp and 63 S AMG of 585 hp. The novice should also offer a range of high-performance variants, but will initiate hostilities with the AMG Level 53, such as the CLS sedan coupe, the E-Class Coupe and the Cabriolet.
Six-cylinder turbocharger and 48V
The powertrain of this new GLE 53 should also come very close to the CLS 53, including a six-cylinder inline 3.0 compressor combined with a 48V light hybridization with generator-starter. The power should be developed well over 400 ch and the torque is greater than 500 Nm (435 hp and 520 Nm for the CLS).
The style of this 53 AMG version will of course be displayed a bit more aggressive than standard modelsincluding more massive and ventilated shields or a grille and special rims. Photos of a still-hidden prototype posted on Instagram also allow us to distinguish the four tailpipes on the back.
If Mercedes will deal with the commercialization of classic versions in the first quarter, this AMG version in the fall of 2019 should show the end of their exhaust systems.
