Find everything you need to know about the Mercedes-Benz GLE here, along with expert reviews, specs, photos, videos and more.

The GLE is Mercedes-Benz’ mid-size SUV, formerly known as the ML Class in a previous life. A variety of engines are available starting with a 255 hp turbocharged 4-cylinder, crescendoing with a fire-breathing 603 hp turbo V8. The SUV can be had with two or three row seating configurations.

With so many options, it’s no surprise the GLE is one of the German manufacturers best-selling models. There’s even a swoopy coupe version if desired.

2024 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450e 4Matic Review: Plug-In Parity

“I’d buy the electrified option, if only it were more affordable.”

We’ve heard it before. We’ve seen it, too: there are a lot of great EVs out there, but they tend to come with five figures’ worth of added up-front cost compared to a similarly-sized gasser. Plug-in hybrids offer a great toe-dip approach to electrification, but even they tend to have price premiums.

For 2024, Mercedes is wiping out that well-worn line of reasoning. The 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450e 4Matic rings up at exactly the same price as its gas-only* sibling. Boasting a lengthy all-electric range and swishy ride comfort, the latest electrified GLE is an impressive mid-sized SUV—but one competitor makes it a tough sell.

How Far Can the 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450e Go on Battery Power?

It’s entirely possible to accomplish your daily routine without using a drop of gas.

We recently spent some time with the 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450e 4Matic. It’s an impressive luxury SUV, specifically the upgraded PHEV powertrain—for no additional cost over the regular GLE 450. A larger, 23.3-kilowatt-hour battery pack and healthy 381 combined horsepower make this the best of both worlds, but just how much EV does this PHEV offer? As it turns out, quite a lot.

2024 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 4MATIC Review: Quick Drive

A good portion of SUVs within Mercedes-Benz’ lineup are undergoing a refresh this year.

That includes the brand’s very popular mid-size GLE. All-new for the 2020 model year, the GLE doesn’t radically change for the 2024 model year, but there are updates to nearly every aspect of the vehicle.

2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Review: Mild-Mannered Mild-Hybrid

For as long as AMG models have existed, their engines have dominated their personalities.

AMGs are the hot rods of their class, all snarling, howl-at-the-moon aggression. The GLC 63 S is a muscle-bound monster of a compact crossover, with a literal sports car engine shoved underneath its hood. It’s impossible not to laugh when gunning it.

The 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 is a different proposition. There’s no angry V8 up front, but instead a smooth-revving 3.0-liter inline-six. This turbocharged six-pot also benefits from a mild-hybrid system, dubbed EQ Boost, which augments the gas powerplant with more power, yet also improves fuel economy. True to tradition, this high-tech drivetrain still dictates the overall attitude of this Affalterbach creation, turning the GLE 53 into a kinder, softer, and better-balanced SUV.
