The Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe has been earning headlines for months. Not only was it among the first all-new models to be announced for 2016, it marked the first model that would receive the brand’s new AMG Sport treatment. Since then, Mercedes-Benz has remained busy unveiling a host of other new models, including the GLE-Class SUV and GLC-Class.
While we’ve had a pretty good idea about the performance capabilities of the GLE Coupe, we now also know how much it will cost, as Mercedes-Benz has provided an official pricing breakdown.
Available in two iterations, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe will be priced as follows:
2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe Pricing & Specs
|2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE450 AMG 4MATIC||3.0 liter biturbo V6||362 HP||384 lb-ft||$65,100*||21"||August 2015|
|2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE63 S AMG 4MATIC||AMG 5.5L V8 biturbo||577 hp||561||$109,300*||22" AMG||August 2015|
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is expected to arrive at dealerships in late August, and interested shoppers in the Chicagoland area are welcome to schedule a test drive or pre-order their new GLE Coupe prior to its arrival.
Powered by a 3.0-liter biturbo V-6 engine, the GLE450 AMG Coupe is uniquely spectacular. Its stunning exterior styling is the perfect encapsulation of the quick, yet powerful experience behind the wheel. Producing 362 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque, the GLE450 sits on 21-inch wheels, sports a 9-speed automatic transmission, and features five distinct driving models through the Dynamic Select system.
For drivers looking to take performance to the next level, the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S is the answer. A hand-crafted AMG 5.5-liter V-8 biturbo engine delivers 577 horsepower and 561 pound-feet of torque. Massive 22-inch AMG cross-spoke wheels and the single bar on the grille help give the AMG model a distinct look, but behind the wheel, there is no mistaking that this model delivers pure AMG performance.
