2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE Class Overview:
If you've got the money to spend and want the latest in a luxury SUV, the coupe-like 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class probably has what you are looking for. With five different engine options to choose from and as many trim levels (including a plug-in hybrid variant), there are numerous options that can help you customize the GLE-Class to fit your specific needs. Each powertrain option is powerful, and if you select one of the engines that are paired with the new 9-speed automatic, you will find yourself enjoying an exciting and smooth ride.

What's New For 2018?

Gone from the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class line-up is the old GLE400 trim, which has been replaced by the GLE43. The only other significant change for the model year is that the GLE43's 3.0-L engine has been increased in power from 362 hp to 385 hp.

Available Styles

The GLE-Class is available as a luxury SUV with a coupe-like outer shape. The GLE-Class slates above the GLA-Class and below the GLS-Class.

Available Trims

There are five different trim levels available for the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class. The base trim is known as the GLE350. It comes with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive (a model variant called the 4Matic). The GLE350 sits atop 19-inch wheels and features a leather-clad steering wheel, front seats that are heated, and a standard 8-inch LCD touchscreen display panel. The 350 with rear-wheel drive has a 3.5-L V6 engine capable of generating 302 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. The GLE550e 4Matic slates just above this and is the plug-in hybrid variant for the GLE-Class. The GLE550e combines the 350 4Matic's standard 3.0-L twin-turbo engine with an electric motor, which produces a total of 436 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. The 550e features regenerative braking based on radar, smartphone app integration, and blindspot monitoring. The AMG GLE43 slots above the 550e and features a spunky twin-turbo V6 engine. It has a sport-tuned suspension, sits on 20-inch wheels designed specifically for the AMG, and a gorgeous glossy black interior design. The next level up is the AMG GLE 63, which is powered by a 5.5-L V8 capable of generating 550 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The same engine is found in the line-topping AMG GLE 63 S model, but it has been tweaked to get a whopping 577 hp and 561 lb-ft of torque.

Driving Impressions

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class provides an overall refined ride quality. The interior is well-muted to road and engine noise, and the seats are well-bolstered for comfort. The one downfall on the GLE-Class is that handling can feel almost too lax, as if the SUV might fly off the road when you start to push hard on the gas. Otherwise, the ride feels pretty smooth, and the GLE-Class can do some light off-roading. The 350 is not as exciting as the AMG trims, though. The 43, 63, and 63 S are better performers overall and have a sporty edge to them with their specifically-adapted air suspensions and stabilizer bars. Acceleration on the V6 is a bit punchy but is incredibly smooth and rapid on the 63 and 63 S.

Fuel Economy

If fuel economy is a priority, the 550e is your best bet. On fuel, it garners 20 mpg city/23 mpg highway but gets 43 MPGe with the hybrid powertrain. The 350 will get you 18 city/23 highway and the 350 4Matic gets 18 city/22 highway. The 43 does slightly worse at 17 city/23 highway while the 63 and 63 S both get a lowly 14 city/18 highway.

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class is not a fuel-efficient vehicle, but it is a capable off-roader and rather spunky daily driver. The sport-tuned AMG trims will cost more in gas but offer refined ride qualities.

How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Mercedes-Benz GLE Class:

Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:

  • Example: Base Mercedes-Benz GLE Class invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
  • What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.

Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)

Note: All Mercedes-Benz GLE Class MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
