2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe

Mercedes-Benz is going after the BMW X6 market with their newly unveiled 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, and we imagine the brand will have no problem attracting some new customers for this crossover SUV.

The slope-roofed Benz will be available in several different models, ranging from a diesel powered option to our personal favorite, the GLE 450 AMG – with power outputs starting at 258 horsepower all the way up to 367 horsepower on the high end of the spectrum. The AMG version is the flagship offering, and will be equipped with a 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission, and 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive to tackle any terrain. As with nearly all MB vehicles, the interior is where this thing really shines. There are carbon fiber, piano lacquer and aluminum trim accents running along the dashboard and door panels, a set of aluminum sports pedals complete with stainless steel rubber studs for additional grip, AMG sport seats, and a gorgeous black Nappa leather AMG sports 3-spoke steering wheel to finish off the ensemble. Expect to see the X6 competitor landing at Benz dealers around the country at the beginning of next year.
