Mercedes-AMG GLE 43 4MATIC
For us, to relax does not mean to sit back. Rather, to know what you have achieved and what you still want to achieve. For us, this means going a step further. And the GLE 43 SUV makes a confident start in this regard. It exudes cultivated tranquility and at the same time embodies powerful dynamism. Its interior is comfortable and full of precise details. And its 3.0-liter V6 biturbo engine with its 390 hp is just waiting to be awakened from its repose.

Braking System With Optimized Brake Cooling.
The Mercedes-AMG GLE 43 4MATIC comes with a large-sized braking system with internally ventilated brake discs, measuring 375 mm in diameter and with two-piston floating caliper on the front axle, and 345 mm in diameter and with single-piston floating caliper on the rear. Thanks to special air ducting, which guides the air flow toward the inside of the brake discs, the cooling of the brakes is further optimized.
The two-pipe exhaust system with integrated chrome-plated tailpipe trim and centerpiece for a four-pipe look sets a sporty tone at the rear. In combination with a special, sporty engine sound including backfire sound, once again the vehicle's power and performance is clearly emphasized.
The interior of the Mercedes-AMG GLE 43 4MATIC is enhanced by the nappa leather sports steering wheel with its flattened bottom section, as well as the trim parts in light longitudinal-grain aluminum and brushed stainless steel sports pedals with rubber studs. Sporty round dials on the instrument cluster, including a 260 km/h speedometer scale, signal pure dynamism even while the car is at a standstill. AMG carbon fiber/black piano lacquer trim enhances the appearance of the interior as an additional option.

The sporty interior of the Mercedes-AMG GLE 43 is an impressive sight with AMG sports seats and the black nappa leather AMG sports steering wheel in three-spoke design. The brushed stainless steel sports pedals bring functionality and visual appeal from the world of motorsport. The rubber studs help to provide additional grip. A high standard of quality and design is also manifested in the AMG floor mats in high-quality velour with imitation nubuck leather edging and embroidered "AMG" lettering. AMG carbon fiber trim and piano lacquer enhance the appearance of the interior as an additional option.
Instrument Cluster With Multifunction Display.
The instrument cluster, with its two large round dials and a central color multifunction display with an 11.4 cm screen diagonal, presents all important items of information in the driver's field of vision. An ECO display helps the driver to adopt a particularly fuel-efficient style of driving. The speedometer is on the left and the rev counter on the right. To further underline the sporty character of the Mercedes-AMG GLE 43, both dials feature bar graph displays for fuel level and coolant temperature, which are positioned respectively at the bottom of these large dials. The multifunction display in color shows information such as time, ambient temperature, trip information and also current gear and the shift program of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G PLUS. The different items of information available on the multifunction display can be called up and edited using the buttons on the multifunction steering wheel.
Multifunction Sports Steering Wheel.
The 12 ergonomic control buttons on the nappa leather multifunction sports steering wheel with flattened bottom section enable operation of the display menus of the instrument cluster and the Audio/COMAND display on the left. On the right, the driver can control the volume of audio devices, telephone and navigation system.
AMG Door Sill Panels.
A feature to catch the eye when entering the vehicle: the high-quality door sill panels with "AMG" lettering protect the entrance area, individualize the looks of the vehicle and underscore the heritage of the car.
Confidently comfortable or dynamically sporty? The performance-enhancing design of the powertrain, suspension and exhaust system ensures a highly emotional driving experience, which differentiates the Mercedes-AMG GLE 43 4MATIC from the Mercedes-Benz model variants. The vehicle can be driven with a very high level of agility and high lateral dynamics.

The new 3.0-Liter V6 Biturbo engine is part of the BlueDIRECT engine family from Mercedes-Benz. Technical advances including a modified boost pressure allowed the AMG engineers to increase the engine's power output and torque. With 287 kW (390 hp) and 520 newton meters the V6 engine sets new standards in its segment — which is evident in the convincing performance: a sprint time from zero to 100 km/h of 5.7 seconds underscores the sporty temperament of the Mercedes-AMG GLE 43 4MATIC. With a combined fuel consumption of 8.6 liters per 100 kilometers and combined CO2 emissions of 199 grams per kilometer, the new top-of-the-line V6 model defines an absolute top position in the competitive environment.
AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G With Shortened Shift Times.
Featuring nine forward gears, this automatic transmission takes dynamics, efficiency and comfort to a completely new level. Fast gear changes, thanks to the AMG-specific tuning, result in even better response and agility. At the same time, the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G impresses with smooth, barely perceptible gear shifting like that of a continuously variable transmission. As the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G is able to skip individual gears, multiple downshifts are possible for fast and powerful sprints. With the DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes "Economy," "Comfort," "Sport," "Sport+" or "Individual," the shift characteristics can be preset from highly economical to dynamic. In "Individual" mode, gears can be selected manually via the steering wheel gearshift paddles ("M" mode). The driver's shift commands are carried out with extremely short shift times. Drivers with a sporty driving style change gears similarly dynamically as in motorsport.
The combination of air suspension and the Adaptive Damping System ADS PLUS provides good ride comfort whilst also ensuring excellent driving dynamics both on and off-road. The damping at each wheel is adapted to the current driving situation and road surface condition. The fully variable adjustable damping effectively reduces rolling and pitching when cornering or braking. With the "Comfort" and "Sport" settings there is a choice between a more comfortable and a sportier setup with the AIRMATIC package. The pneumatic all-round self-leveling system ensures a constant vehicle level irrespective of the load. In "Sport" transmission mode the vehicle is lowered by -15 mm and in "Sport+" mode by -55 mm. Automatic lowering to the sport level (-15 mm) occurs in the "Comfort" transmission mode from a speed of 80 km/h. Among other things, this results in reduced wind resistance and further enhanced stability.
The DYNAMIC SELECT variable dynamic control system assigns fundamentally different characteristics to the five transmission modes of "Individual," "Comfort," "Slippery," "Sport," and "Sport+," which the driver is able to select using a rotary control on the center console. The system networks all the control systems, generating different driving experience parameters. The names speak for themselves: "Sport" and "Sport+" turn the Mercedes-AMG GLE 43 into a sporty, dynamic vehicle with pronounced longitudinal and lateral dynamics. In "Comfort" the emphasis is on relaxed, effortless cruising with the greatest possible energy efficiency. "Slippery" optimizes the handling on surfaces with low friction coefficients such as snow or ice. In addition, "Individual" mode enables the driver to program and store personal preferences in the individual control strategies, regardless of the engine variant.
In the Mercedes-AMG GLE 43, DYNAMIC SELECT not only modulates the "hard skills" such as the chassis and suspension, steering or powertrain. It is also possible to experience the selected mode more intensively on an emotional level because various "soft skills" such as the engine sound, instruments or dynamic control of the driving lights also vary. To this end, the nature of the various displays on the COMAND screen and in the cockpit changes according to the selected transmission mode. At the same time, the active light function of the all-LED headlamps responds more spontaneously, the light functions of the High Beam Assistant switch faster and the engine produces the whole range of sounds from sporty and dominant to poised and reticent.
