Just like the other “53” models at AMG, the Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 4Matic Coupe is powered by the EQ Boost mild-hybrid 3.0L turbocharged inline-six-cylinder engine that is fitted to a 48-volt hybrid booster.

For short bursts, the system adds a further 21 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque to the gasoline engine, which maxes out at 429 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque.

Mercedes says the power plant can take the AMG GLE 53 Coupe from a zero-to-60-mph sprint in 5.2 seconds, and top speed is an electronically governed 155 mph.

The AMG GLE 53 Coupe also gets a seven drive modes that includes the Comfort, Sport, Sport+, and Individual settings, plus a Slippery setting for low-traction situations, and off-road-friendly Trail and Sand selections.

Activating the Sport and Sport+ lowers the SUVs suspension by 15 millimetres, and in Comfort mode, it does the same from 120 km/h upwards.
