2015 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe
Price: TBA
On Sale: Late Summer 2015
It’s hard to determine if the GLE Coupe belongs on this list. The current M-Class will be renamed GLE in the near future, so GLE is clearly an SUV line. However, the GLE Coupe is bit odd in that it really isn’t an SUV and, for that matter, it has four doors so it really isn’t a coupe. Perhaps all this is best explained by Board Member Responsible for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development Prof. Dr. Thomas Weber who says, “Our GLE Coupé combines typical coupé attributes, such as sportiness, dynamism and agility, with the confident presence, versatility and robustness of an SUV.” (Perhaps not.) All GLE Coupes will be well equipped and feature Mercedes’ 4Matic all-wheel drive system. Two versions will be sold — the GLE450 and GLE63 AMG, the latter getting a 577-horsepower biturbo V8 engine.
