2022 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class SUV Trims & Specs

The Mercedes GLE-Class SUV is available in four models: the GLE 350, the GLE 350 4Matic, the GLE 450 4Matic, and the GLE 580 4Matic. The 350 models use a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four with 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. Both are identical, save for the 4Matic AWD system and $2,500 price difference. The GLE 450 4Matic prefers a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six with mild-hybrid assistance to produce 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, while the GLE 580 is equipped with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine with 483 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. All models pair their engines with a nine-speed automatic transmission and share similar standard features, with the MBUX infotainment system, basic safety suite, and most luxury features being standard. The base 350s can only be had with the standard suspension, with AirMatic air suspension available on the 450 and standard on the 580.

🚘What's the Price of the 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class SUV?

The new Mercedes GLE-Class' price of $55,700 is for the GLE 350 RWD, the base model of the range. The only distinguishing feature the GLE 350 4Matic has over the base car is the AWD system that attracts a $2,500 premium - it is offered for sale at $58,200. The GLE 450 is superb value with an MSRP of $63,500 and runs the GLE 580 too close for the latter to justify its $80,200 price tag. These are base prices and exclude the $1,050 destination charge, optional extras, or additional charges and taxes. A GLE 450 with the $1,375 Premium Package, $1,710 AirMatic suspension, $1,950 Driver Assistance Package Plus, and pretty $750 20-inch twin five-spoke alloys weighs in at $70,335, destination charge included. It's what we would have.

Additional Packages

As is usually the case with Mercedes, there are many extras and packages to choose from. Some of the cosmetic extras like the AMG Line Exterior with Night Package ($3,200) and illuminated star in the grille ($500) are of doubtful value. The Driver Assistance Package ($1,950) previously discussed is a must-have though, and the Premium Package ($1,375) adds a Burmester surround-sound system, surround-view cameras, and that GLE 580-only 115-volt outlet. The Warmth & Comfort Package ($1,050) with rapid heating for the front seats, armrests, and upper door panels might be useful in cold winters. There is also an Air Balance Package that adds a fragrance system and cabin-air purifier for $350. Lastly, remember that the third row is not standard but rather a $2,100 addition.

🚗What 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class SUV Model Should I Buy?

The base car makes little sense unless you must have 2WD and don't mind the compromised suspension. But why would you want 2WD if the GLE 450 4Matic mild hybrid uses less fuel and offers vastly better performance, plus all-weather ability? Also, AirMatic is not available on the GLE 350. The GLE 580 is the stand-out model thanks to its V8 powertrain, AMG-level performance, AirMatic suspension, and detail trim differences. But it's a lot more expensive than the GLE 450 and much heavier on fuel, without adding enough in terms of spec or performance to justify its price. Our choice for the best Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class model is the GLE 450 specced with AirMatic, the Driver Assistance Package Plus, and the Premium Package.
