« Back Mercedes GLE53 AMG Premium Plus
Mercedes has got a huge range of SUVs now, but this large GLE (formerly the ML) was the original and has been constantly improved with every new generation. For those who want performance without the eye watering costs of the ’63 twin turbo V8 engine there’s now this GLE53 AMG model. It uses a slick new 3.0 litre turbocharged straight-six engine which has a 48V electrical system which allows for the engine’s normal 429bhp to be boosted by 22bhp for short bursts, while torque is boosted 250Nm to 770Nm too. This is known as a ‘mild-hybrid’ system but it’s all about performance, not economy. So 0-62mph in dealt with in just over 5 seconds and it makes a really throaty noise as well, adding to the fun factor. As ever with the latest Mercedes models, the GLE53 has a gorgeous interior with all the latest tech you could imagine and with this being the Premium Plus model it’s pretty much all included too!
