Extending the Life of the GLE Internal Combustion Engine
In the case of the front, the family look stands out

In the case of Mercedes-Benz’s GLE, the company is preparing to launch the second facelift without a full change after launching the first facelift model in 2023. Through this, it is presumed that the lifespan of the current model was extended, as if conscious of the decline in demand for electric vehicles, as well as reducing development costs for subsequent models.

The front of the captured vehicle is reminiscent of the midsize sedan E-Class. In particular, the unity of the grill adjacent to the headlamp further emphasizes Mercedes-Benz’s latest family look. Moreover, changes such as the triangular star pattern grille and lower bumper details are expected to be made.

Applying Benz’s Latest Model Technology
The Interior Reminds Us of the E-Class

Two cameras are mounted on the side mirrors in the side view, and changes similar to those of the EQS facelift model were attempted. In the rear, the tail lamps and lower twin mufflers, designed similarly to the latest Mercedes sedans, stand out as highlights. Without much difference from the existing model, the voluminous rear part creates a grand atmosphere.

As for the interior, a new design steering wheel and layout changes are noticeable. Although it is difficult to see clearly because it is completely hidden, a separate display appears to be used, similar to the new E-Class, rather than a horizontally connected display. Mercedes-Benz’s Hyper Screen technology, which extends to the passenger side display, was not visible in the vehicle.

Powertrain Improvements Expected
Price Increase Seems Inevitable

No specific information regarding the powertrain has been disclosed yet. However, it is expected to improve the performance of the plug-in hybrid model and electric motor while maintaining a similar level to the current model. In addition, interest is also focused on whether the latest technology, such as the off-road cockpit applied to the 2025 G-Class, will be used.

GLE’s second facelift model is expected to be launched in the second half of 2024 or the first half of 2025. As performance improves, a price increase seems inevitable. The GLE currently sold in America starts at $63,800 and goes up to $87,850.
