2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE 580 Debuts With Mild Hybrid V8 Power


The new Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class variant slotting above the GLE 450 and the AMG-tuned GLE 53. Those rumors were indeed true, as Mercedes just revealed the new GLE 580 with a mild-hybrid V8 powertrain


The amped-up GLE is fitted with Merc’s familiar 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, tuned for this application to generate 483 horsepower (360 kilowatts) and 516 pound-feet (700 Newton-meters) of torque. Aiding the engine is the automaker’s EQ Boost system, consisting of an integrated starter-generator (ISG) that can add an additional 21 hp (16 kW) and 184 lb-ft (249 Nm) to the powertrain for short periods of time.

Inside you’ll find familiar GLE-Class amenities. The digital cockpit includes dual 12.3-inch screens for the instrument cluster and infotainment display, and the MBUX system is included as well. It’s further updated with the MBUX Interior Assistant for added functionality. Additional options include a range of interior trims and materials, exterior AMG Line details, and 22-inch wheels.
