2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE Ratings & Reliability
The new GLE is very quiet and impeccably finished inside, and has excellent seats. The uplevel GLE 450 has a powerful 3.0-liter turbo six-cylinder engine that returned 20 mpg overall in our tests. The standard engine is a 255-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. The GLE rides comfortably but its handling is rather dull. It comes with a new infotainment system that has one large screen that contains the instrument panel and center screen. Audio, phone, navigation, and some comfort settings can be changed through the touchscreen, touchpad, or steering-wheel, touch-sensitive controls. We found the system extremely distracting to use, even with the ability to use voice commands. Forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking are standard.

2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE Ratings & Reliability
Renamed from the M-Class, the GLE is a capable and luxurious midsized SUV. For 2019, the GLE400 comes with a 3.0-liter, 329-hp turbo V6. The ML V6 that we tested delivers smooth and powerful acceleration with 18 mpg overall and generous towing capacity. Supple and composed, the GLE rides well and is quiet inside. Steering response is quick but comes up short on feedback. The first-rate interior finish and the well-padded, supportive seats are interior highlights, but the infotainment system is complex. Automatic emergency braking is standard. A redesigned 2020 GLE just went on sale. It features a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and turbocharged six-cylinder with a 48-volt mild hybrid. A nine-speed automatic transmission is paired with both engines.
