Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe in Jurassic World
Strangely enough, Jurassic Park and Mercedes-Benz have a bit of history together. In 1997, the first sequel in the Jurassic Park Series, “Jurassic Park: The Lost World,” debuted in theaters. In that movie, we got our first look at the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, the first crossover from the luxury brand. As one of the most highly anticipated sequels of the time, it was a great way to get moviegoers’ eyes on the new vehicle.
Nearly two decades later, Jurassic Park is making a comeback with a new iteration titled “Jurassic World,” and Mercedes-Benz is once again using the platform to showcase a new vehicle. This time around, it will be the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe.
Jurassic World hits theaters on June 12, so we’ll likely have a chance to get a good look at the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe before it appears in that movie, as it is expected to make an appearance at an auto show before it is in action on the big screen.

It’s also interesting to note that the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe shares underpinnings with the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, further tying the appearance in “Jurassic Park: The Lost World” to the upcoming cameo.
This won’t be the only Mercedes-Benz vehicle in the new movie, however, as a press release from Mercedes-Benz states that Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, the stars of the new movie, drive a number of off-road capable Mercedes-Benz vehicles to escape imminent danger.
It will be cool to see some of our favorite Mercedes-Benz vehicles on the big screen for what is sure to be a box office hit. A co-promotion package is planned as the theater release gets closer, so look for more information in the coming months.
We’ll provide a list of all the Mercedes-Benz models in Jurassic World when we can. Until then, enjoy the trailer for Jurassic World below!
