Every GLE comes with the basic five-setting Dynamic Select knob, no matter which of the five engines are under the hood. Here's where things get tricky, so we'll list the details for the sake of clarity.



  • GLE300d – 2.1-liter, turbodiesel four-cylinder with 201 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.
  • GLE350 – 3.5-liter V6 with 302 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque.
  • GLE400 – 3.0-liter, twin-turbo V6 with 329 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque.
  • GLE550e – The same 3.0-liter, twin-turbo V6 as the GLE400, but mated to a hybrid module (packaged in the transmission) with a total system output of 436 hp and 479 pound-feet of torque.
  • GLE63 – 5.5-liter, twin-turbo AMG V8 with 550 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.
  • GLE63 S – Same engine as the standard GLE63, but with 577 hp and 561 lb-ft of torque.

All non-AMG trims use Mercedes' 7G-Tronic Plus seven-speed automatic transmission. The GLE63 gets the AMG Speedshift seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Diesel models not sold in the United States can be had with the company's 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic.
