New 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe Fully Uncovered in Leaked Photos.
Carscoops

December 9, 2014


We get an early look at the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe sports crossover thanks to a set of leaked official pictures on the net.

The final production model is very close to this year's Mercedes-Benz Concept Coupe shown in Beijing, with the most significant difference spotted at the rear where the designers discarded the study's prettier looking slim tail lamps running across the entire width of the SUV, replacing them with two larger separate units.

Inside, the GLE Coupe shares its dashboard with the upcoming M-Class facelift that will be renamed to GLE under Mercedes' new nomenclature, including the standalone display screen for the updated infotainment system.

Underneath, you'll find the platform architecture of the M-Class with the two SUVs also sharing their powertrain line-up.

Stuttgart has already confirmed and even teased the introduction of a GLE AMG Sport model powered by a bi-turbo V6 with around 370-horses that will slot between the GLE 400 with a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 delivering 329hp (333PS) and the GLE 63 AMG with a 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 producing over 570 horses.

Daimler's BMW X6 fighter will have its world premiere at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

It prints money for their brands, though. Minimal investment, maximum profit.
So which one does this compete with from BMW? The X4 or X6? I would classify both as printing money, IE, going out the front door though and not any being made. In the US, the X4 sold 489 units and the X6 sold 421. Thats not a good target.

Pointless vehicle; I can't see it selling much and worse for MB it doesn't look like luxury.

X6.

These things are like the four door coupes that they're putting out now (6 Gran Coupe, CLS, etc.). They don't cost much to develop, but they're sold for higher prices and bring in more cash than the run in the mill 5 or E. In this case, just replace 5/E with X5/ML.
