Mercedes Benz Gle
The first generation of M-class had the factory designation W163. It was developed with a view to the American market where made a success. In this industry, Mercedes-Benz M class was remembered by the high level of safety. In 1999, the charged version with the processed running gear, other weather-cloth of a body and 347 hp 5.4-litres of atmosphere model was debuted. The car acceleration to the first hundred km/h was just 6,9 seconds, and maximum speed - 232 km/h.
The next potentially successful course - restyling M-class (now - GLE) which exists also in a body type of coupe now, but let us first deal with names. Any "ML" does not exist anymore: the crossover is called GLE and GLE Coupe now. Mercedes Benz company tries to create a clear system: the only or last letter in a name designates a model class, but GL or CL means that it is an SUV or 4-door coupe.
At first sight in order to understand modifications of new GLE not easy, but actually, in the model, there is accurate identity depending on body type. Do you want the most available motor, hybrid or off-road-package? Then, it is GLE. Do you need the style, novelty and powerful engine? - Then, it is GLE Coupe.
The motor gamma of the coupe begins with 258 hp diesel (version 350), and in combination with the 9-speed automatic transmission which Mercedes Benz company for the first time put on the crossover, it means this engine is absolutely silent. At 100 km/h on the 9th gear, the engine speed is slightly higher than the idling speed, at 120 - 1500, and at 140 - still less than two thousand!
