New Mercedes crossover was spied and we believe that could be 2018 Mercedes GLE. New generation of this vehicle will be started with this SUV, and according to first look, it is going to be much better than current vehicle. Exterior is now more aggressive and attractive, and new generation could bring new engine and interior features. However, since there is enough time for the crossover to be tuned and heavy camouflage that covers it on spy shots, there could be many changes before the model reach dealerships.
2018 Mercedes GLE styling
Heavy camo covered most of the 2018 Mercedes GLE body, but some changes couldn’t stay hidden. First of all it is hood, which is redesigned, and nose of the SUV is now taller than before. Grille was also covered, but this part could suffer only minor changes. Air vents are bigger, and new GLE is getting wheels of same sizes as before. Interior will be similar to redesigned S-Class. Spy shots revealed dashboard and part of instrument panel, and it seems like we can get all new cabin for GLE. We are sure that latest features and systems will be integrated, including infotainment. Comfort is not in doubt to be on top level, as all Mercedes models.
2018 Mercedes GLE engine
New generation of the crossover can bring new powertrains. Current units are going to be totally revisited and tuned to offer more power by taking less fuel. So, we can expect 3.5-l V6 as a base unit, but its 300 hp should jump to 330 hp. Then, there are 3.0-l turbocharged V6, which is going to be ready to crunch 350 horses. Other options will be hybrid and diesel, which can deliver minimum power. New diesel unit can burst around 210 hp, while hybrid is leader in this segment with output of 450 hp.
2018 Mercedes GLE price
Entry-level of the 2018 Mercedes GLE will be priced just above $50,000 mark. Hybrid model starts from $65,000. Arrival of the crossover is expected during 2018, when it is going to face new editions of BMW X5 and Audi Q7.
