U.S. News and World Report: “Are you looking for a midsize SUV with a buttery-smooth ride? If so, go with a GLE 350, which has a softer suspension and a starting price of $52,000.”
Indeed, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 may be the lineup’s base model, but it doesn’t shy away from providing noteworthy performance figures. In addition to the 302 hp produced, this 3.5L V6 machine generates 273 lb-ft of torque via a seven-speed 7G-TRONIC® automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but 4MATIC® all-wheel drive can be installed if desired. In any case, every time you hit the road, you’ll be sure to notice that “buttery-smooth ride.”
Edmunds: “What are you looking for from a luxury SUV? If it’s comfort, ample cargo space and many available features, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE  could be for you.”
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 certainly offers more than enough room for you to load up all of your gear. There is standard seating for five people and 38.2 cubic feet behind the rear seats.

In terms of features, the cabin comes loaded with the latest creature comforts and technology. Standard fare includes a sunroof and MB-Tex® leatherette upholstery, but you can add leather if you so choose. You can also expect the Mercedes-Benz COMAND® infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi connection.
