Polar White Finish, with Espresso Artico Leather Interior. Mercedes’ mid-size luxury SUV, the GLE-Class, started life in 1997 as the Mercedes-Benz M-Class. Now, for the 2017 model year, Mercedes is replacing the GLE400 and GLE450 AMG with the new AMG GLE43. Essentially the same five-passenger performance SUV as the outgoing GLE450 AMG, the AMG GLE43 is framed as a stylish, high-tech, relatively quick SUV, with a dollop of family-oriented practicality and autonomous safety features spread on top.
Under the hood of this AMG GLE43, you’ll find a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine, boasting all-aluminum construction and double overhead cams. The power nerds over at AMG managed to massage this powerplant to produce upwards of 362 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque – substantially more than the GLE400, but exactly the same output figures as the AMG GLE450.
Mercedes has yet to divulge exact performance figures, but the 0-to-100 Kph sprint is expected to fall somewhere in the low-five-second range, while top speed should be electronically limited to 250 kph
Like all AMG 43 models, the GLE43 gets the AMG-tuned 9G Tronic automatic transmission, and sending the power to the ground is a standard 4Matic AWD system.
Just like the exterior, the AMG GLE43 has a close attention to detail in all of its finishes. Drivers grip a three-spoke steering wheel with a flat bottom and numerous buttons placed at thumb’s length on the sides. The wheel is wrapped in leather and trimmed in brushed metal. Behind the wheel is a gauge cluster with a left-mounted speedometer and right-mounted tachometer, which sandwich a center-mounted digital driver’s information display. More brushed metal trim is found around the gauges, not to mention the center console and vents, while in the footwell, there are drilled metal pedals with rubber inserts for greater grip.
Factory options for this Mercedes-Benz AMG GLE 63 S Coupe include Intelligent Drive Package, Anthracite Poplar Wood Trim, Climate Controlled Cup holders, Heated Steering Wheel, 20” AMG 5 Spoke Bicolor Wheels and Tow Package.

In Canada, every province has different taxation rules and we can accommodate them all. We can help you secure worry free shipping to your door, and assist you with vehicle registration once your car arrives.
You have a number of choices available to you:
The first step is to contact us. We always have our professional photographs, our inspection reports, lien checks, service records, CarProof, and CarFax Reports available to you.

From there, you can choose safe, insured door to door delivery in enclosed transporters that guarantee the arrival of your purchase in the same condition that it left our showroom.
Or, should you opt for an exceptional drive home, we will happily pay up to $250 toward your overnight stay en route.
