2022 Mercedes-AMG GLE53

Mid-size Luxury SUV for Desert Trails and City Streets

The 2022 Mercedes-AMG GLE53 is a mid-size, luxury SUV that takes you from the trails to the city streets in comfort and style. This new-generation GLE offers high-voltage hybrid technology, intelligent pilot control, enhanced intelligent hands-off detection that is sensitive to specific conditions and an intelligent pilot control that anticipates vehicle behavior and responds to the driver’s actions. 


The SUV offers great performance with the AMG-enhanced 3.0L inline-6 turbocharged engine. It has what Mercedes calls a “mild hybrid drive,” which pairs the inline-6 gasoline engine with a 48-volt lithium-ion battery that adds up to 21 hp for short bursts. With ECO Start/Stop, the engine shuts off at stoplights to help conserve gasoline. 

You can feel comfortable on those dirt roads with the 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive, which instantly responds to driving conditions. The AMG Dynamic Select on the console lets you switch between six modes: Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Slippery, Trail and Sand. If that’s not enough, you can program your own mode. 


The Mercedes-AMG GLE53 brings a bold new design with the vertical-bar grille. The aluminum roof rails, while stylish, are also practical, making them ideal for bikes and kayaks. The optional LED-illuminated running boards are practical and add a bit of sporty style to the SUV. 

Inside, the cabin is a blend of high-tech and fine craftsmanship. The contoured sporty front seats face a floating, all-digital dash. The design incorporates Mercedes luxury with power front seats and driver-seat memory. The heated and ventilated front seats ensure your comfort no matter what time of year you climb into the cabin. You can even upgrade to massage on the front seats, which includes two spa-like settings and an active workout setting to help strengthen back and leg muscles. 

The 64-color ambient lighting adds a space-age touch to this SUV. 


Today, we want our cars as connected as we are, and the Mercedes-AMG GLE53 does not disappoint. The Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) integrates digital in-dash displays. The panel includes a touchscreen, touch-sensitive controls, Bluetooth and voice-activated commands. The number of custom themes and moods is impressive, so you can create your own driving experience.
