Mercedes-Benz has revealed the high-performance luxury version of its new 2020 GLE Coupe, the 2021 AMG GLE 53 4Matic Coupe — 4-door Coupe? Yes! This 4-door hatchback crossover is a “Coupe“. Mercedes-Benz and Porsche adopted the terminology — which normally refers to a 2-door car — to apply to any model without upper window frames on the doors.
The interior is available with a wealth of different color and trim options.The MBUX infotainment system offers an AMG-specific Supersport screen.
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.
Pricing for the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupe will be announced later. It is expected to reach dealership in early to mid 2020.
