For the discerning driver, no single transmission option is good enough: and that’s where the Mercedes-Benz Dynamic Select system comes into play. With this innovative system in the Mercedes-Benz top-of-the-line models like 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 AMG Sport, you can specialize your vehicle for anything from smooth-sailing to off-roading and receive the kind of performance you crave.
For five years, Mercedes-Benz has been outfitting their vehicles with the Dynamic Select system. At the touch of a button, aspects like engine performance, exhaust system function, suspension and dampening, transmission mode and handling can be adjusted. The driver can choose from fixed settings or, in the Individual setting, mix and match the features that they choose. You can even change settings while driving and a setting will be remembered up to four hours when you turn off the car. On those long drives, you won’t have to reconfigure your ride after every pit stop.
Try Comfort mode: you get a smooth-as-silk, quiet ride with multiple gas saving innovations. “Sail” down the highway by giving your engine a break and letting the momentum of your vehicle drive you forward. Or let the ECO Start-Stop conserve your gas and your engine at every stoplight.
Or for the more adventurous, try the Sport setting. In addition to faster gear shifts and speed-friendly suspension set-up, the Sport mode drops some of the power steering to give you more personal control of your vehicle, and more sensitivity to the road. This setting is perfect for taking those fast curves at speed and maintaining control.
Different models have different options. Some other modes include Slippery, for find control in those dangerous weather conditions, and Off-Road for those willing to invest a little more to take their Mercedes-Benz everywhere they want to go. The Off-Road option offers high traction, raised height and reinforced undercarriage to protect your vehicle from whatever terrain you want to tackle.
Enjoy the power of choosing which Dynamic Select option is right for you and take a test drive today.
