Mercedes is building the new generation GLE right now, but these are not news at all because we’ve caught several testing models over the past year. This time, however, we managed to see the cabin of the redesigned 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE. More precisely, the SUV has shown its new dashboard and infotainment.
We have to say that the interior styling of the new-gen GLE looks just as we’ve expected. The SUV is using Mercedes’ latest MBUX Interface. The infotainment will see a light of day with the new A-Class first, but we know pretty much everything about it already. It’s basically a dual digital screen which relies on the Linux new system. The compact cars will feature 10.25-inch displays for sure, though they do look a bit larger inside of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE. The German car manufacturer is using 12.3-inch screens inside of the new S-Class, so this could be the case with the larger crossover as well. Aside from fare more advanced infotainment system, the high-riding vehicle will also use host significantly better telematics and driver-assistance systems.
The 2019 GLE will use a new platform. Aside it’s lightweight the MRA architecture is also capable to accommodate a range of alternative powertrains. Still, the SUV will continue to use a number of regular, gasoline and diesel, options. The list will include four-, six-, and eight-cylinder gasoline units, as well as pretty much the same range of diesel mills. Of course, the oil burners won’t be available in North America. Like we said, hybridization is in plans and will happen for sure, though we have nothing on that at this point. What we do know for sure is that there will be rear- and all-wheel drive systems available. The topping AMG version of the SUV will rely on a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8.
If everything turns out to be good, the new generation Mercedes-Benz GLE will appear at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.
