Jalopnik has published it's buyer's guide for the Mercedes-Benz GLE. Jalopnik has previously called the new GLE, "One of the Most Important Cars of Our Lifetime."
There are many different variants of the GLE: GLE300d (201 HP 2.1-liter turbodiesel), GLE350 (302 HP 3.5L V6), GLE350 4MATIC (302 HP 3.5L V6), GLE400 4MATIC (329 HP 3.0L turbo V6), AMG GLE63 (550 HP turbo V8) and AMG GLE63 S (577 HP turbo V8). Add to that the Coupe versions too: GLE450 (362 HP 3.0L turbo V6) AMG Coupe and AMG GLE 63 S Coupe (577 HP turbo V8).Why? Because the ML started it all. It was the beginning of posh, car-like luxury SUVs as we know them today, and now they’re on every **** street in America.
Of all of these Jalopnik recommends the 300d:
Of course they also are ga-ga over the AMG GLE63 S SUV, but since it costs a staggering $108,000, it's "a hard pill to swallow."Sure, it’s slow, with a 0-60 MPH time of only 8.9 seconds, but the thing makes 369 lb-ft of torque and it’s the cheapest GLE you can buy with four-wheel drive.
