The all-new GLE SUV is almost ready and will be introduced at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. The topping version of the vehicle will, on the other hand, arrive sometime later, most likely at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Still, although the date seems too far to wait, it is worth of waiting, especially if you have enough money to buy such machinery as it’s going to be the totally redesigned 2020 Mercedes-AMG GLE63. We don’t dare to say whether it’s going to be a better option than the BMW X5 M or not until the German carmakers introduce theirs performance SUVs, though we have to say that the AMG-treated GLE is our favorite even now.
We don’t really know why that is. Perhaps due to a large Panamericana grille that can’t be hidden with the camouflage. Or maybe thanks to a massive front bumper which is teamed with big air intakes. Either way, the SUV will look amazing for sure. The front end is additionally spiced up with a pair of attractive headlights and LED daytime running lights. In the back, the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GLE63 gets a new, larger bumper with new quad exhaust pipes and redesigned and narrowed taillights. The side profile of the SUV reveals a bit longer body and most likely a few extra inches between front and rear wheels. Speaking of which, the model rides on 22-inch alloys paired with red and black calipers.
Under the hood, the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GLE63 features a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8. The awesome engine needs no introduction because the new-gen E63 S and S63 sedans are using it already. The V8 unit will most likely deliver 603 horsepower, which will power all-wheel-drive system via a 9-speed automatic transmission.
In case you need something, well, more extravagant, you can always wait for a few more years because the carmaker plans to add a coupe version of the GLE, which means that there’s going to be a performance coupe-crossover in the coming years.
