Seat rehearsal Mercedes GLE at the Detroit Motor Show: The really big number

Subscriptions & booklets

E s is probably the unbroken demand for SUV owes that of all things such as this forms the prelude to the new AMG sports line from Mercedes. At the premiere of the GLE Coupé - a kind of dynamic M-Class or the BMW X6 with the star - not only the 585 hp GLE 63 AMG S rolled onto the stage, but also the GLE 450 AMG. A double-charged V6 engine works in its bow, as is known from the E 400, for example. In addition to modified control electronics, it also differs from the basic one in that it has a modified camshaft. The power of 367 hp and the maximum torque of 520 Nm (basis: 333 hp and 480 Nm) are distributed to all four wheels by a nine-speed automatic. And the GLE 63? The well-known 5.5-liter V8 biturbo rages on it, the modified seven-speed automatic transmission is used.

The GLE 63 AMG is optionally available in the normal version with 557 PS and 700 Nm, or as an S with 585 hp and 760 Nm. The sprint times are 4.3 and 4.2 seconds respectively, the maximum speed for both is 250 km /h and the standard consumption is 11.9 liters.

You don't buy a Mercedes GLE for reasons of reason

On the other hand, the rigid one seems a little awkward Luggage compartment cover that gets in the way of large items of luggage when the huge tailgate is opened. So what do you do with the thick board? Well, good question. However, a vehicle like the GLE is unlikely to be bought for rational reasons, and if so, it will also be available with a V6 diesel engine. Incidentally, while the 4matic drive in the standard variants works with a power distribution of 50:50, the AMG variants have their own transfer case that directs 60 percent of the power to the rear axle. And so that the appearance of the new off-road coupé does not seem so shy, the GLE 450 AMG and GLE 63 AMG roll on 21-inch wheels with tires of the same size285/45 and 325/40, the GLE 63 AMG S is even one size larger. Here the tire dimensions are 285/40 at the front and 325/35 at the rear.

Additional AMG equipment includes an air suspension with five adjustable modes, a sports brake system, AMG-style aprons, black wheel arch extensions, sports seats, carbon applications as well a steering wheel with a flattened bottom. Well then: Brock `n roll.
