Impressive agility is guaranteed by the 435hp 3.0-litre six-cylinder in-line engine with 48 volt technology, fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive, the AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G 9-speed automatic transmission and the 60mm shorter wheelbase compared with the SUV variant.
The enhanced driving dynamics also come by virtue of the AMG-specific drive programs and the AMG RIDE CONTROL+ air suspension with stabilising, electro-mechanical AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL.
"The attractive coupé lines envelop sophisticated suspension technology and our powerful, efficient six-cylinder in-line engine with 48 volt technology. Both guarantee a thrilling driving experience," says Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG.
20-inch light-alloy wheels with AMG lettering are fitted as standard.
In the cabin, there are AMG seats in black ARTICO man-made leather / DINAMICA microfibre and a three-spoke AMG steering wheel with aluminium shift paddles.
Buyers will enjoy the AMG RIDE CONTROL+ air suspension newly developed in Affalterbach which provides both long-distance comfort and great agility, neutral cornering behaviour and maximum traction.
One new feature is the active roll stabilisation system AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL which not only reduces body roll when cornering, but also allows more precise and faster handling control.
The GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupé is powered by an electrified 3.0-litre engine with twin turbocharging by a turbocharger and an electric auxiliary compressor.
The 6-cylinder in-line engine generates 435hp and delivers a maximum torque of 520Nm.
Its EQ Boost starter-alternator delivers an additional 22hp and 250Nm of torque for a short period, and also feeds the 48 volt onboard electrical system.
The GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupé accelerates from zero to 100 km/h is just 5.3 seconds,.
It has the AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive for maximum traction and dynamism, and extremely fast AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9-speed automatic transmission (TCT = Torque-Clutch Transmission).
One option is the AMG TRACK PACE which provides a virtual engineer that enables up to 80 vehicle-specific data as well as times on closed-off circuits.
