Mercedes has released more information on its new GLE Coupe.
Specifications for the GLE 450 AMG Coupe have already been released, but now Mercedes is filling in the blanks when it comes to base models. The base GLE 400 comes powered by a twin-turbo V6 that makes 333 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque. The other powertrain option, which likely won’t come to the US, is a small diesel in the GLE 350d that makes 258 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque.
The new Mercedes GLE will hit dealerships during the summer of 2015, and customers will be able to choose either the GLE 400 or the 450 AMG Coupe. Both models come with a nine-speed transmission and 4Matic all-wheel drive. Also standard on all models is a power-operated tailgate, a backup camera and 20-inch alloy wheels.
The GLE 450 AMG Coupe is the first vehicle to come from Mercedes’ new AMG-sport line, which positions its vehicles between the regular variants and the high-performance AMG versions. Eventually, a GLE 63 AMG will be offered.
