2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE revealed with mountains of tech to feed the crossover frenzy

Boy them new Mercs getting uglier by the year.

A 48-volt electrical system and a trick suspension are highlights

Mercedes-Benz is no stranger to the luxury crossover market, and today we get to see its latest entry: The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE. Another day, another SUV, right? Fortunately, this one's got more style and tech than any other 'ute from the German manufacturer, and some of it sounds pretty sweet.

Leading off, we've got new sheetmetal all around and a three-inch increase in wheelbase over the current GLE, providing some space for the optional third-row seat. It looks smoother and slipperier throughout the new design. Those new lines, combined with aero tricks here and there, helped Mercedes get the coefficient of drag down to 0.29 — it claims that number is now best in the segment.

The base engine in the GLE350 is Mercedes' 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder with 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. All versions of the GLE will come with a nine-speed auto at launch. The engine you want to know about, though, is the 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six that comes integrated with a 48-volt electrical system. So equipped, the GLE450 puts out 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque.
