The 2019 Mercedes GLE will be redesigned. We can see some changes on the spy shots we see on testing. With the vehicle already on the streets, fans can assume that debut is getting closer. This redesign will start a new generation with some significant changes. Luxury mid-size crossover class is always attractive, but Mercedes is the leader there. The new vehicle is going to cement the position at the top. It is hard to find a weak spot in GLE series. Nevertheless, its price is the most frustrating part.
2019 Mercedes GLE redesign
Spy shots are unveiling some changes on the 2019 Mercedes GLE. The crossover is finally getting updates after a while. The last time was a just minor refreshment, with a combination of the parts from M-series. Proportions of the new GLE are the same as before. Angular headlights are a novelty for 2019 season. There is also larger grille than before. Other highlights are strong G-series lines. Spy pictures allow a sneak peek into the cabin. These show a layout we can see in E-class of the Mercedes with dual displays. One of them is there for commanding the infotainment system.
2019 Mercedes GLE drivetrain
Under the hood of the base, models will be a 4.0-l unit. It is a change to current 3.5-l V-6. However, upper trims, 550 and 43 variants, will get a turbocharger with its engines. We still don’t know the volume of the drivetrain for these two. On the other hand, top of the class AMG model is getting the same unit. It is certain that would be a massive 5.5-l engine. Automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are going to destroy the mileage. Buyers won’t like to see a crossover delivering 16 mpg combined. On the other hand, 600 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque are going to calm them down.
2019 Mercedes GLE prices
Once again, the 2019 Mercedes GLE will start from $50,000. No matter there is a new generation, the German carmaker is going to keep prices at the same level. We expect the same from AMG models, which are always more expensive, like for GLC or GLB crossovers. Their costs start from $100,000, and the most expensive versions are around $110,000.
