2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Class Coupe REVEALED

Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe

Daimler takes the four-door SUV coupe fight to the BMW X6

It may have taken a few years for Mercedes-Benz to catch up, but the GLE is here to give the BMW X6 a run for its money.

While official details for Canada likely won’t be divulged for months, here’s what you can expect:

Release Date: Late 2015 as a 2016 model.
Engines: Between 258 and 367 hp, a base 3.0L diesel and two twin-turbocharged V6 gas engines.
Transmissions: Nine-speed automatic for all models.

If the GLE nomenclature is unfamiliar to you, this is basically a Mercedes-Benz M-Class lacking the utility of a utility.
