Minor update on the way

Mercedes-Benz Current GLE class coupe Only arrived in the 2021 model, but the carmaker is already testing an updated version.

The latest spy shot shows a prototype of an updated version of AMG GLE53 CoupeSometime next year, it should debut with an updated version of the GLE Class Coupe and the AMG GLE 63S Coupe. Updated versions of GLE class models other than the coupe should arrive at that point.

Currently, the updated range is expected to arrive in 2023 model year.

The update is likely to be minor, and the prototype camouflage gear suggests that there are some minor adjustments to the front fascia and there is a new interior of the lights on both ends.

The interior should also receive updates, and Mercedes may install the latest version of the infotainment system and perhaps a larger screen. We are also looking forward to a new handle design.

Powertrain changes are unlikely to occur earlier in the vehicle’s life cycle. The current GLE53 coupe features a 3.0-liter turbocharged in-line 6-cylinder and a mild hybrid setup consisting of a single electric motor. The Inline 6 produces 429hp and 384lb-ft on its own, but the electric motor, which also acts as an engine starter, can add up to 21hp and 184lb-ft in a short amount of time. 9-speed automatic and all-wheel drive also form part of the package.

The GLE class is one of Mercedes’ bestsellers. Ignoring the 2020 aggregate, medium-sized crossovers average annual sales of about 50,000 units in the United States alone.

Production of all GLE class models will be processed exclusively at the Mercedes plant in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Minor update on the way
