2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupe: Design & Utility
Based on the Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV, the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupe boasts an even more sculpted, sporty look. The roofline slopes downward at the rear, lending this vehicle a sporty coupe-like shape without sacrificing SUV passenger comfort or versatile cargo space. A panoramic sunroof comes standard for extra light and openness in the cabin. Large 21" alloy wheels and quad exhaust outlets are also standard.
But this style doesn't come without substance. Standard illuminated running boards make entry and egress easy. A power tailgate is also standard, complete with a built-in sensor to stop the gate in case of an overhead obstruction, such as a parking garage roof or garage door. You can even open the rear gate hands-free with a kick of your foot under the rear bumper. All you need is the key in your pocket.
This is no ordinary car, so why would it be equipped with an ordinary gauge cluster? Instead, climb inside the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupe and you'll be greeted by a wide, sweeping dashboard stuffed with technology. Instead of analog gauges, a 12.3" video display shows your speed and RPMs, and can also be customized to show driver assist feedback, maps & navigation, multimedia information and more. Immediately adjacent is another 12.3" touchscreen display, complete with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for your compatible smartphone. The GLE 53 Coupe continues in the Mercedes-Benz tradition of bringing tomorrow's technology to you today.
And with luxurious standard features like seats made from MB-Tex leatherette and DINAMICA microsuede, a Nappa leather-wrapped steering wheel, power front seats with position memory and four-way lumbar support, the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupe is a fantastic place to cover mile after mile. You can also get optional features ideal for life in Southern California such as ventilated front seats, massaging front seats, heated/cooled cupholders and the Air Balance cabin fragrance system. You've never been so glad to be stuck in traffic.
Of course, you can count on all the safety essentials like air bags and advanced traction control on every new Mercedes-Benz -- but the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE goes even further. Standard Active Brake Assist will engage the brakes to help you avoid a forward collision if you fail to engage the brakes quickly enough on your own. Standard Mercedes-Benz Emergency Call service can get you emergency help automatically by dispatching your exact GPS coordinates to the authorities. ATTENTION ASSIST® can even monitor the driver's attention to detect a drowsy driver and suggest a cup of coffee or a quick break. And if you've got a trailer to bring along, standard Trailer Stability Assist helps you combat crosswinds and stay in complete control.
Be sure to ask about optional driver assist features that can help take the stress out of Southern California traffic such as Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC cruise control, Active Stop-and-Go Assist, Evasive Steering Assist and so much more.
Under the hood of the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupe, a cutting-edge, beltless, twin-turbo inline six-cylinder engine delivers a blistering 429 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque. But that's not all. A 48-volt lithium-ion battery powers the formerly belt-driven accessories, and can deliver an additional 21 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque for gas-free coasting and even more powerful performance.
Standard 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive can vary torque distribution between the front and rear axles, including 100% rear-wheel drive power for that classic sports car feel. A limited-slip rear differential further sharpens acceleration and cornering control. Pair that with a sophisticated nine-speed automatic transmission, multi-piston AMG brakes and AMG RIDE CONTROL+ air suspension with active damping and you get the most engaging drive ever developed for a sizable family car. Just what you expect from the world-renowned AMG performance team.
