Explore the Mercedes-Benz GLE Utility Features

With ample space for both passengers and cargo, and smart features that enhance versatility, the Mercedes-Benz GLE is both luxurious and practical.

  • Cargo Capacity: With a generous 38.2 cubic feet of cargo space with all the seats in place, and an expansive 80.3 cubic feet with the 60/40-split rear seat folded down, the Mercedes-Benz GLE surpasses the GLA and GLC dimensions, and can easily accommodate hauling building supplies from Golden State Lumber, or groceries from United Markets. San Francisco drivers will appreciate the added convenience of floor-mounted tie-downs, a side parcel net, and a 12-volt power outlet.
  • Power Liftgate: The power liftgate provides ease of access with a simple touch of a button on your key fob. Ideal for loading or unloading cargo.
  • Roof Rails: Need to carry surfboards, snowboards, skis, or bicycles? The standard aluminum roof rails will come in handy.
  • Passenger Capacity: Superior craftsmanship is evident throughout the cabin, and the standard heated front seats and hand-fitted upholstery provide an elegant setting for up to 5 adults.
  • Navigation System: Get directions quick and easy with the COMAND® hard-drive navigation system. The 8-inch color screen displays 3D maps highlighting points of interest and building profiles to help you get safely to your destination.

Towing and Performance Utility

The utility evident in the cabin space of the Mercedes-Benz GLE is matched by its performance and towing capabilities. With a powerful and efficient 3.5L V6 engine that features direct injection and variable valve timing, this dynamic SUV produces a solid 302 hp with 273 lb-ft of torque. The base trim Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 offers a towing capacity of 6,600 lbs, while the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 4MATIC® can haul up to 7,200 lbs. If you’re planning on trailering a boat down to San Francisco Bay that kind of power will come in handy.

Choose the 4MATIC® model for extra control on wet and slippery Novato roads. The advanced 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system delivers torque to the individual wheels that need it when encountering difficult road conditions. You can also set the driving mode to your own personal preference with the DYNAMIC SELECT feature which offers Comfort, Sport, Slippery, or Off-Road modes.
