Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class

Mid-size luxury SUV

Motor vehicle

The Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class, formerly Mercedes-Benz M-Class, is a mid-size luxurySUV produced by the German automaker Mercedes-Benz since In terms of size, it is slotted in between the smaller GLC-Class (based on the C-Class) and the larger GLS-Class, the latter with which it shares platforms.

For a short time, between and , the M-Class was also built by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria, for the European market, before all production moved to the U.S. plant near Vance, Alabama. From late , the M-Class was also assembled at new plants in India, Indonesia and Thailand.

Since April , the M-Class has been renamed to the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class in an effort to harmonize the various nameplates, aligning it with the E-Class.

Nomenclature update from M to GLE[edit]

Although grouped under the "M-Class" naming banner since the first launch, BMW, who sells M models such as the M3, objected to the car being badged "M" with the three-digit engine level afterwards (e.g. M ). This forced Mercedes-Benz to defer to a double-tiered marketing strategy of "ML" badging (e.g. ML ) under an M-Class umbrella.[1] There has been some confusion surrounding this nomenclature, with many sources erroneously referring to the series as the "ML-Class",[2][3] including Mercedes-Benz itself.[4][5]

From , with the release of the facelifted W third-generation model at the New York Auto Show in April, the M-Class was renamed to GLE-Class as per the revised nomenclature adopted by the brand. Under this scheme, SUVs use the base name "GL", followed by the model's placement in Mercedes-Benz hierarchy. The "G" is for Geländewagen (German for off land wagon or off-road vehicle) and alludes the long-running G-Wagen. This is followed by the letter "L" that acts as a linkage with the letter "E"—the GLE being the SUV equivalent to the E-Class.[6][7]

Mercedes-Benz proposed a plan to replace the G-Class, which at the time had been in production for 11 years. A joint agreement with Mitsubishi Motors to develop and produce a sports-utility vehicle was made in early and was confirmed publicly that June. Plans were made to base it on the Montero/Pajero platform, with one of them being badged as a Mercedes-Benz and the other a Mitsubishi. In May , these plans were abandoned citing "technical problems" and Mercedes-Benz continued on with in-house development from January [9][10] In March , a search for a location to build a U.S. manufacturing plant began. By September , a location in the state of Alabama was chosen and construction started in While plans were being made overseas, in Germany development continued. Design work took place from late to A design from Mercedes' Sindelfingen studio was chosen in and approved by the executive board in February The design patents were filed in Germany on 13 July , and in the U.S. on 13 January Prototype testing started with test mules and crash tests using mock-ups in May First functional prototype's crash test took place in February , with full testing run from March to December in various climates and regions of the world. Pilot production began in May In July , construction on the Mercedes-Benz U.S. International plant in Vance, Alabama concluded, with the very first production M-Class rolling off the assembly line the week of 9 February [11]

Mercedes-Benz launched the first generation W series M-Class on 19 February , in the United States for the model year, with sales beginning that September. It is a mid-sized body-on-frame SUV with seating for five, or seven with an optional third-row seat. The M-Class was the first luxury SUV to feature electronic stability control, a system designed to detect loss of control and instantaneously intervene with selective braking to bring the vehicle back on its intended course. Furthermore, the M-Class boasted front- and side-impact airbags with advanced occupant detection for the front passenger seat, which helped earn the W the highest marks in insurance industry crash tests.

The Mercedes-Benz M-Class (W) was available with permanent 4Matic four-wheel drive, which routed torque to all four wheels through all open front, center, and rear differentials.[12] The system used a two-speed dual range BorgWarner transfer case with reduction gearing, and Mercedes' new Four-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS). 4-ETS simulated three differential locks on all three open differentials, via aggressively braking one or more spinning wheels.[12]

Four-wheel, electronic traction system was said to perform excellent for snow and heavy off-road use.

Manufactured in Vance, Alabama, in the United States, the M-Class launched in the North American market first as the ML The ML was sold internationally, with the "" suffix alluding to the litre V6 engine. An entry-level, manual transmission-only ML , fitted with a litre inline-four was available in Europe from launch in March until From launch in , European markets also received the ML CDI with a litre inline-five turbodiesel engine. This unit was made available in Australia in and continued on in the W until being replaced upon the release of the W M-Class in

Later, in , the more powerful ML became available with the newly introduced Mercedes-Benz litre V8. This was followed by the February debut of the ML 55 AMG, featuring a litre V8 engine made by AMG, modified bodywork, and other performance features.

In September , before the vehicle was launched, Mercedes-Benz allowed the producers of the film The Lost World: Jurassic Park to make use of modified pre-production M-Class SUVs as a way to advertise the W when it was launched in As a result, a Mercedes-Benz advertisement appears before the film on original VHS copies of the film. Jeff Goldblum, the star of the film, received a complimentary ML from Mercedes-Benz as a result of the tie-in. Three versions were used in the movie, of which 2 copies of each were built. Two are displayed at the Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, there is one at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany, and one at the Visitor Center at the M-class factory in Alabama.



The ML was Motor Trend magazine's Truck of the Year for and was voted the North American Truck of the Year at the North American International Auto Show, Detroit, in January It also received the World Car Award in March , voted by an international jury of automotive journalists in Geneva.[13] Despite the accolades, Mercedes-Benz received considerable criticism with respect to the substandard quality of the W, resulting in the car being nicknamed Alabama Trashcan.[14] Quality improved over the years, especially after the facelift in for the model year. DaimlerChrysler spent US$ million on improvements at the Alabama factory before launching the second generation ML in

Mercedes-Benz revised and updated the W in for the model year. Styling updates involved the fitment of new head- and tail-lamp lenses, front and rear bumpers, new alloy wheels on most variants, the relocation of the side turn signals from the fenders to the side-view mirrors, and various interior trim changes. At the same time, the ML was replaced by the litre V8-powered ML and a new litre V8 turbodiesel ML CDI became available in Europe. The following year, in , Mercedes-Benz launched the ML fitted with a litre V6 engine. The ML replaced the ML in some markets, but supplemented it in others.

The W was available as a seven-seat version, with two seats in a third row. Access was problematic and the seats were not suitable for large adults so the seven seater ML-Class was discontinued after the model year and replaced by the larger GL-Class.

The previous Popemobile was based on a W series ML and has been in service since July [15]Volkswagen had offered to build a new vehicle based on the Touareg, but Pope Benedict XVI opted to continue using his predecessor's Mercedes-Benz-manufactured vehicle.[16]

In , development on a successor to the W began under the codename "W" and spanned a period of 6 years. First design drafts have appeared in with the first production models in scale , and in , three full-sized versions were prepared.[17] By late , the production design styled by Steve Mattin under Peter Pfeiffer was chosen and approved by the executive board in [18] The design patents were filed in Germany on 10 June , and in the U.S. on 25 July. Prototype testing was conducted throughout and , concluding in early The redesigned M-class (chassis name W) was introduced in April as a model after a showing at the North American International Auto Show in January. It was almost entirely new, with a more sporting, aerodynamic look—the coefficient of drag went down to compared with the previous generation. Mercedes-Benz made the new M-Class 71&#;mm larger, &#;mm longer and 5&#;mm lower than the first model. The M-Class was named "Best New Sport Utility Vehicle" in the Canadian Car of the Year awards.

Mercedes-Benz extensively publicised the US$ million spent to update its factory and add manufacturing space for the new R-Class. According to early automotive press reports, the M-Class vehicles demonstrated vast improvements in quality.

The W platform used for the new M-Class is shared with the new GL-Class and is a unibody type rather than the former (W) body-on-frame used by the M-Class vehicles produced from – The X GL-Class, a longer seven-seater version of the W platform, is also available.

New features in the M-Class include the 7G-Tronic seven-speed automatic transmission, optional Active Curve-Illuminating Bi-Xenon headlights which "steer" in the path of the vehicle, and an adjustable-height air suspension. The manual transmission has been dropped. Permanent 4Matic four-wheel drive remained, with one-speed transfer case (no low range), center limited-slip differential and four-wheel electronic traction system (4-ETS). In most countries except the U.S., an Off-Road Pro package with center and rear differential locks, 4-ETS, two-speed transfer case with reduction gearing, and adjustable ground clearance was available as an option increasing the original fording depth from &#;mm to &#;mm.

The AMG version of the W, the ML 63 AMG, was introduced at the North American International Auto Show as a limited edition model. It features a &#;L MV8 engine producing &#;PS (&#;kW) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) that is handcrafted in Germany. The engine is added to an AMG Speedshift 7G-Tronic seven-speed automatic transmission. The ML 63 AMG can accelerate from 0–60&#;mph (96&#;km/h) in just seconds, or from 0–62&#;mph (&#;km/h) in just seconds. These impressive features made the ML 63 AMG the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 SUV in the world.[20]




facelift (ML 63 AMG)

By , design work on updates to the W were finalized and patented domestically in Germany on 23 November The Mercedes-Benz M-Class got a minor facelift as it debuted at the New York International Auto Show in March

This facelift includes new front headlights, redesigned front and rear bumpers, new exterior mirrors, new rim choices, a larger front grille, restyled interior, and a new ML CDI engine choice. The ML CDI became the ML CDI, the CDI became the CDI, and the CDI became the CDI.

Models using BluetecDiesel engine with urea injection were introduced in for the model year.

At the New York International Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz showed their ML Hybrid SUV, which was announced on 8 April The ML Hybrid consumes almost 50% less fuel than the ML does, even though it produces over 90% of the power generated by the V8 model. Total power generated will be &#;hp (&#;kW) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque, while getting 24&#;mpg&#;US (&#;L/&#;km) on the highway and 21&#;mpg&#;US (11&#;L/&#;km) in the city, according to United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates. The engine itself runs on the Atkinson cycle and by itself makes &#;hp.[21] The ML was developed under the Global Hybrid Cooperation, and will only be available in the United States under lease.[22][23]

In , Mercedes-Benz came out with their flagship SUV model, the Mercedes-Benz M BlueTec Grand Edition. The vehicle had cosmetic changes, including specially-manufactured inch 10 spoke wheels, black leather with white stitching, and smokers package with Grand Edition modeling. The exterior consisted of new wheels, tinted headlights and tail lights, xenon-package (LED tail lights and daytime running lights, Xenon headlights), black grille, AMG, and side-view mirrors. The Grand Edition was offered in Midnight Blue, Black, and Ivory White, differentiating the basic model by colour already. The interior had changes, including deletion of the heated steering wheel and the replacement with an AMG steering wheel.

In , development began on the next-generation M-Class and spanned over a period of 5 years, a shorter duration than its predecessor. In , the final design by Emiel Burki was approved and patented domestically on 16 December (U.S. design patent filed on 15 June ). The newly redesigned M-Class (chassis name W) was introduced in pre-production form 10 June as a model. The first customer-designated W rolled off the Vance production line on 20 July.[26] It is moderately refined, taking styling cues from the new generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class. An increase in rear seat legroom has been implemented, alongside adjustable rear backrests. It was to be launched in September

New features in the M-Class include an updated 7G-Tronic Plus seven-speed automatic transmission to provide improved fuel economy, optional adaptive cruise control (Distronic Plus), active lane departure warning system, and an adjustable-height air suspension (AirMatic). An active curve system with active anti-roll bars for body roll compensation was introduced.[27]

The W was one of the last vestiges of the joint venture between Daimler and Chrysler while they were a consolidated company. DaimlerChrysler developed the core platform and technology, benefitting from Chrysler's strong SUV sales and R&D domestically. The underlying platform work was largely completed in , as the two companies were separated. Chrysler uses the same platform to power the Jeep Grand Cherokee (WK2) and Dodge Durango. Because of the separation however, the cars are extremely different in terms of interior and body design as well as engine choices. Aside from engines, the three SUVs share many powertrain components, including some transmissions.

An On&Off Road Package is available for most markets (now including North America) as of the model year. The package adds a two-speed dual range Magna Powertrain transfer case with center differential lock, reduction gearing, underbody skid plates, and a 6-mode selectable terrain driving program system. The rear differential lock has been discontinued.[28]

Open front and rear differentials are fitted, and use four-wheel electronic traction system (4-ETS) to simulate front and rear differential locks.

The Mercedes M-Class won first place in the "Luxury Crossover SUV" category and has been named the most ideal vehicle for Americans based on a study undertaken by California-based automotive research and consulting firm AutoPacific.[29]

Mercedes-Benz India established a manufacturing plant in Chakan, Pune in early [30] that rolled out the first W M-Class to be built outside the US in October [31] In the following month, Mercedes-Benz Indonesia began M-Class assembly at a factory in Wanaherang, West Java.[32] These plants perform final assembly of vehicles shipped as "knocked-down" kits from Vance, USA.

In the second half of a facelifted W was released as the GLE, along with a coupé version.

The previous Popemobile was based on the M-Class and was delivered in December

Facelift (GLE-Class)[edit]

Mercedes-Benz Concept Coupé SUV

The Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class is a sport utility vehicle (SUV) built by the German car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz. The GLE-Class name was used in for the facelifted Mercedes-Benz M-Class (W)[34] and the new five-door coupé derivative GLE-Class Coupe (C) which was unveiled to the public in January at the North American International Auto Show. As part of Mercedes-Benz's new naming strategy, the GLE-Class will define the SUV's positioning in the middle of its segment and between the future GLC and GLS-Classes (the former GLK and GL, respectively), the same way the E-Class is positioned in relation to the C and S-Classes.

The fourth generation GLE-Class was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show.

At launch, the GLE was sold in the U.S. with two engine options. The GLE has a 2-liter 4-cylinder engine with &#;hp (&#;PS; &#;kW) and the GLE has a 3-liter, inline-6, turbocharged engine with &#;hp (&#;PS; &#;kW) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) torque. The GLE has a 48V electric system with an integrated starter motor. The system powers the air-conditioner, in-car electronics and the electronically driven turbocharger. Other engine options are also available. For the first time, the GLE also adds a seven-seat option.

The AMG GLE 53 was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in March. It has a L turbo I6 boosted to &#;hp (&#;PS; &#;kW) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) torque. A 48V electric system like in the GLE features EQ Boost for an extra 21&#;hp (16&#;kW) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) torque on demand.[44]

Plug-in hybrid[edit]

In the European market, two plug-in hybrid versions are available: the GLE e, using a petrol engine, and the GLE de, using a diesel engine. Both use a kWh battery. The vehicle can be equipped with a 60 kW quick charging option. The declared WLTP all-electric range is 90 to 99&#;km (56 to 62&#;mi).[45][46]

Long-wheelbase GLE-Class (V)[edit]

The fourth-generation GLE saw the introduction of a long-wheelbase (LWB) variant, which as of is currently only sold in India. The LWB has a wheelbase that is 8 centimetres longer than that of the standard version.[47]

The LWB GLE is very similar in size to smaller 3-row SUVs like the Audi Q7, Infiniti JX and Acura MDX. However, unlike those vehicles, the LWB is still designed as a default 2-row SUV, with most (69mm) of the additional length being put into use in the second row. As such, the LWB's primary market is moreso executives than families, and a close competitor is the Range Rover. Available powertrains include a litre turbodiesel (d), litre turbodiesel (d), and litre petrol (), all making the same power as in the SWB counterparts.

In India, the LWB's only market, the SWB is not sold. Mercedes currently has no plans on bringing the LWB to Europe or North America.[48]

Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.

CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't % safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

CARFAX was founded in the US in and expanded into Europe in Around team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.
