  • GLE 350 and GLE 350 4MATIC® SUVs: The GLE 350 and GLE 350 4MATIC® come equipped with a 2.0L inline-4 turbo engine that generates 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. Both of these models will have the ability to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in an estimated 7 seconds.

2020 GLE Cabin Features

Just like its predecessors, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE lineup offers plenty of elegant interior amenities and innovative safety and infotainment features. Some of these features include:

  • Active Brake Assist
  • A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and 12.3-inch touchscreen multimedia display

Mercedes-Benz User Experience, or MBUX, is a new intelligent infotainment system that’s also available on the 2020 GLE. This feature is voice-powered and can learn driver preferences over time. To activate this feature, simply say, “Hey, Mercedes-Benz.” MBUX also understands indirect cues. For example, if you want MBUX to turn on the vehicle’s air conditioning, MBUX will understand to do so when you say, “It feels warm in here.”
