SUV is economical and luxurious
Starting at $63,950, the 2022 Mercedes Benz GLE 450 4Matic SUV delivers 20 miles per gallon in the city and 26 miles per gallon on the highway. That’s icing on the cake to this dynamic, outstanding SUV.
It has a commanding pedigree of power and speed that generates a superior, satisfying velocity. That translates to 0 to 60 miles per hour in 5.5 seconds. It gets you there with a 3.0-liter inline-6 turbo with a mild hybrid drive engine that produces 362 horsepower.
The 19-inch twin five-spoke wheels tie the exterior together, which are accented with chrome and include the lines that we have come to expect from Mercedes Benz. The front grill sports a large version of the Mercedes Benz star, which offers the strong branding that car owners love.
But it is the details, including an intuitive voice assistant, that take this SUV to the next level. This is nice because you can tell it to do things like open the sunroof, which is modern and efficient.
The 3.0L inline-6 turbo engine is both lightweight and fully beltless. It also is electrified, with an integrated starter-generator that can supply up to 21 horsepower, allowing for gas-free coasting and a recapture of energy during deceleration. Even on its own, the twin-scroll turbocharged gas engine outputs 362 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque for a smooth, efficient response.
To understand this vehicle, let’s do a deeper dive into the mechanics: Electrifying the inline-6 gasoline engine is an innovative integrated starter-generator. It teams with a 48-volt lithium-ion battery to supply the power for the formerly belt-driven components like the water pump and air-conditioning compressor. This is how everything was made lighter, which is a big improvement under the hood. In addition, the electric assist can generate additional, gas-free power and torque for immediate response.
A specially engineered version of the 4Matic system can automatically send between zero and 100 percent of the engine’s torque to either the front or rear axle. This is a great feature that responds to the driving conditions of the moment. That means that you get a precise response to different surfaces and individual-wheel traction for different needs including bad weather. The driver benefits by getting enhanced handling during any season, favorably influencing the vehicle’s rotation.
This seven-seat SUV is a wonderful addition to the Mercedes-Benz family. The 2022 Mercedes Benz GLE 450 4MATIC SUV has innovative thinking behind it that is sure to stick in your mind when you give it a spin for the first time. The starting detailed pricing is $80,215.
