2015 NAIAS: Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 AMG Coupe image

The less hot version of the GLE 63 AMG Coupe, the GLE 450 AMG Coupe, has been officially presented to the public during the 2015 NAIAS, by Mercedes-Benz.

After officially pulling the wraps off the range topping version of the new GLE Coupe, the GLE 63 AMG Coupe, during the 2015 North American International Auto Show, in Detroit, the car manufacturer has also introduced the GLE 450 AMG Coupe. The vehicle is getting an aggressive body kit, lightweight alloy wheels, 21-inch in size, an automatic lowering function reducing the ride height at high speeds, the AIRMATIC air suspension, adaptive damping system and so on.

The interior design of the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 AMG Coupe hasn’t been left unchanged from the standard GLE Coupe either and this can easily stand out thanks to its stainless steel pedals, to the sports steering wheel which has been all wrapped up in Nappa leather, the piano black accents, the carbon fiber trim, the revised instrumentation which is showing the SAV’s lateral and longitudinal acceleration and several other goodies.

The most important part of the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 AMG Coupe is definitely found under its hood, where the 3.0 liter V6 engine is resting. This is capable of producing a total output of 362 HP (270 kW) and it has a peak torque of 520 Nm (383 lb-ft). Power is being sent to the all-wheel drive system through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Detailed specifications on the engine haven’t been released yet but they will be made public soon.
