Increased turbo boost puts its 384 lb-ft of torque on tap at just 1,800 rpm, for a 0-60 time of just 5.6 seconds. Rapid-multispark ignition and high-pressure Direct Injection act with millisecond speed and molecular precision. Beneath its red engine cover, a lightweight diecast-alloy block, variable valve timing and reduced friction further raise efficiency and performance.
With a greater range of ratios and shorter steps between gears, the new 9-speed automatic changes gears more quickly but nearly imperceptibly.

In any season, on any road, 4MATIC adds to your confidence and control. It also incorporates our 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS®), which monitors for the first sign of wheel slip and responds to ensure torque is sent to the wheels with the best grip, even if that's only one wheel.
A twist of a console control lets you dial in the GLE's performance character to suit your needs or your mood. DYNAMIC SELECT offers four preset modes (Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and Slippery) an Individual mode you can configure a la carte. Each mode includes settings for the throttle response, shift programming, ESP, AIRMATIC suspension, ECO Start/Stop and more.

For the ideal balance of control and comfort, the AIRMATIC adaptive suspension employs electronically controlled air springs. Automatic 4-wheel level control adapts for additional cargo or passengers, and lowers the vehicle at higher speeds for improved aerodynamics.
Incorporated into the innovative AIRMATIC air suspension, ADS continually optimizes ride and handling by automatically selecting one of four damping profiles for each spring-strut every time a wheel changes its direction of up-down travel. Driver-selectable Comfort and Sport modes allow you tailor handling response and ride firmness to your driving style or the conditions.
Radar-based technology alerts you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as the driver starts to brake, its Adaptive Brake Assist automatically provides the ideal level of braking, to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. The system can also provide autonomous braking from speeds up to 65 mph, and can activate the features of PRE-SAFE.
The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior, and can automatically alert the driver with both visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips. With enhanced sensitivity, the system can also help detect drivers who begin their trip drowsy, and offer more useful information to drivers along their journey via the dashboard display.
A Mercedes-Benz first, PRE-SAFE can detect instability during certain vehicle maneuvers that suggest a collision or rollover is imminent. It can then tighten the front seat belts, adjust the front passenger seat, and close the windows and sunroof, all in an effort to better prepare the occupants and restraints in the moments before a collision. If no accident occurs, the seat-belt tensioners reverse, and you simply readjust your seat, open the sunroof and continue on your way.
An enhancement to the groundbreaking PRE-SAFE system helps protect the occupants in a rear-end collision. A radar sensor in the rear bumper helps detect an impending impact, engaging the features of PRE-SAFE to better prepare the front-seat occupants and their restraint systems. It can also firmly apply and hold the brakes, to help reduce peak loads on all occupants as well as the risk of a secondary collision.

Pioneered by Mercedes-Benz, dynamic full-LED headlamps generate light that's even closer to natural daylight than the standard Bi-Xenon headlamps. Active Curve Illumination and Adaptive Highbeam Assist continuously vary the beam pattern of the multiple LEDs in each headlamp to help maximize the illumination of corners and straightaways, without creating glare for other drivers. The horizontal taillamps feature a fiber-optic dual "torch" design and LED turn signals and brake lamps.
This innovative driver-assistance feature helps you to see directly behind your vehicle when backing up. Shift into Reverse, and a wide-angle camera mounted near the rear license plate displays a live view of what's behind the vehicle on the COMAND screen in the dashboard.
Adaptive braking technology integrates a suite of advances. If you lift off the accelerator quickly, Predictive Brake Priming sets the pads closer to the discs for more immediate response when you apply the brakes. In the rain, Automatic Brake Drying periodically applies the brakes just enough to sweep water build-up from the discs. During uphill starts, Hill-Start Assist helps prevent unwanted rollback. And a HOLD feature can make long red lights or stopped traffic a little easier.
