What SUV could possibly complement the sleek gloss-black-trim of the athletic Mercedes-Benz 4-door GLE43 coupe? January 31st, 2017 provided quite the memorable answer, with the eponymous automaker releasing the ninth model in its AMG 43 line with a set of performance features to put the wow factor into the already impressive GLE400 build. That model was the 2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG GLE43 SUV, and we at Cardenas Metroplex couldn't wait to take a peek under that powerhouse hood.
GLE43 kicks off its five-passenger experience with some serious power. An AMG-enhanced 3.0L V6 biturbo powertrain shells out up to 362 horsepower, and with up to 384 lb-ft of torque brought under reliable control by an AMG-enhanced 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission and AMG Performance 4MATIC® all-wheel drive, GLE43 shows itself an owner of the road. Selectable Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Individual and Slippery modes make it easy to personalize the drive experience with GLE43's AMG Dynamic Select System, letting you set suspension stiffness, shift points, throttle mapping and idle speed according to your driving style and putting the finishing touches on finely tuned steering and precision handling.
And GLE43 is as convenience feature-replete as it is a hard charger. Up to 38.2 cu. ft. of cargo space (up to 80.3 cu-ft with seats lowered), accessible from behind the rear seats via a standard power lift gate, provides ample storage for the long haul. A power sunroof and heated front seats are standard in GLE43, too, so you can take in pleasant weather or help GLE43 temperature controls create a custom cabin climate.
Whether you want to see what the Mercedes-Benz GLE43 can mean for you, or another vehicle interests you from our wide gamut of brand-new SUVs from AMG GLC43 and GLE, to GLA250, GLC300, GLE350 and GLS450, we're just a short trip away in the Harlingen, TX area.
