For its part, in Europe, the GLE 400e will generate 248 Hp (185 kW/252 Hp), while the 4MATIC GLE 350 will be powered by a 2.0-liter diesel engine that, together with its electric motor, delivers 194 Hp (145 kW /197 Hp).

These, the GLE 300 d 4MATIC and GLE 450 d 4MATIC, will make 266 hp (198 kW/269 PS) and 362 hp (270 kW/367 PS), respectively.

In addition, Mercedes has added a new tow route planner to the GLE. It determines suitable routes to drive with a pre-defined trailer based on information about its weight, height, width and more. To help park your trailer once you arrive at your location, Trailer Manuever Assist now works with a camera-based system and regulates the direction of the GLE up to a speed of 3 mph (4.5 km/h).
