<ul><li><p>Daimler Communications, 70546 Stuttgart/Germany </p><p>Mercedes-Benz A Daimler Brand </p><p>The new GLE 450 AMG 4MATIC </p><p>Third sports model from AMG: </p><p>dynamic SUV for new target groups </p><p>Stuttgart/Affalterbach. Mercedes-AMG is extending its offering of AMG </p><p>sports models. The GLE 450 AMG 4MATIC is already the third vehicle in </p><p>this new line. The power SUV facilitates a further, attractive way of </p><p>entering the AMG performance world. The hallmark characteristics of the </p><p>sports models include the enhanced engine output and the higher torque </p><p>of the 3.0-litre V6 biturbo engine, the specific AMG suspension, the </p><p>Sports Direct-Steer system, the nine-stage automatic transmission </p><p>9G-TRONIC and the permanent all-wheel drive 4MATIC with the rear-</p><p>biased torque distribution of 40:60. The new V6 top model of the GLE </p><p>series facilitates impressive driving performance: acceleration, handling </p><p>and top speed are on a par </p><p>with those of sports saloons. </p><p>The new GLE 450 AMG 4MATIC impresses with agility and sportiness. </p><p>The immediate and direct implementation of all driving commands, </p><p>combined with the powerful yet not overpowering sound of the sports </p><p>exhaust system, create a highly emotive and appealing driving feel. </p><p>"With our sports models we are making our sports car technology and </p><p>the hallmark AMG driving experience accessible to new target groups", </p><p>says Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. "The GLE 450 AMG, </p><p>the third sports model from AMG after the C 450 AMG and GLE 450 AMG </p><p>Coup, is fulfilling our brand promise of Driving Performance in every </p><p>respect." </p><p>Press Information </p><p>15 October 2015 </p></li><li><p>Daimler Communications, 70546 Stuttgart/Germany </p><p>Mercedes-Benz A Daimler Brand </p><p>Page 2 The data at a glance: </p><p> GLE 450 AMG 4MATIC </p><p>Engine V6 petrol engine, direct injection, </p><p>biturbocharging </p><p>Displacement 2996 cc </p><p>Output 270 kW (367 hp) at 5500-6000 rpm </p><p>Peak torque 520 Nm at 2000-4200 rpm </p><p>Transmission 9G-TRONIC </p><p>nine-speed automatic transmission </p><p>Drive system 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive </p><p>Torque distribution FA/RA 40:60 </p><p>Length/width/height 4816/1926/1762 mm </p><p>Wheelbase 2915 mm </p><p>Track width front/rear 1654/1673 mm </p><p>Wheels front/rear 9 J x 20 / 9 J x 20 </p><p>Tyres front/rear 265/45 R 20 / 265/45 R 20 </p><p>Acceleration 0-100 km/h 5.7 s </p><p>Top speed 250 km/h </p><p>Fuel consumption, </p><p>NEDC combined </p><p>8.6 l/100 km </p><p>CO2 emissions 199 g/km </p><p>Efficiency class C </p><p>With the five drive programmes Individual, Comfort, Slippery, Sport and </p><p>Sport Plus the characteristics of the new GLE 450 AMG 4MATIC can be </p><p>modified depending on the driving situation. The interventions occur via </p><p>numerous parameters such as throttle response, load development, </p><p>switch points, shift speed, chassis, steering, engine sound or </p><p>instrumentation. </p><p>"Sport" and "Sport Plus" turn the GLE 450 AMG 4MATIC into a sporty, </p><p>dynamic vehicle with pronounced longitudinal and transverse dynamics for </p><p>plenty of fun at the wheel on winding stretches of road. In the "Comfort" </p></li><li><p>Daimler Communications, 70546 Stuttgart/Germany </p><p>Mercedes-Benz A Daimler Brand </p><p>Page 3 setting the emphasis is on relaxed, effortlessly superior cruising plus driving </p><p>power that is as energy-efficient as </p></li><li><p>Daimler Communications, 70546 Stuttgart/Germany </p><p>Mercedes-Benz A Daimler Brand </p><p>Page 4 possible. "Slippery" mode optimises the handling on surfaces with low </p><p>friction coefficients such as snow or ice. In addition, "Individual" mode </p><p>enables the driver to programme and store personal preferences in the </p><p>individual setting parameters, regardless of the engine variant. </p><p>A perfect combination: 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive and </p><p>9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission </p><p>Depending on the drive programme, the nine-stage automatic </p><p>transmission </p><p>9G-TRONIC changes gears with high agility and responsiveness or </p><p>effortless calm. The potential of the new transmission is exploited to the </p><p>full. It offers an impressively high shift speed and perfect transitions for </p><p>energetic sprinting, as well as gentle, barely perceptible gear shifting for </p><p>enjoyable travelling. The transmission's large kingpin inclination enables </p><p>cruising with the lowest engine speed during relaxed driving. This </p><p>simultaneously ensures optimum efficiency. </p><p>The AMG development engineers have also specifically designed the </p><p>standard-fit permanent all-wheel drive 4MATIC for performance-</p><p>orientated use in the GLE 450 AMG. The drive torque is distributed in a </p><p>ratio of 40:60 (front axle:rear axle). This rear-biased configuration raises </p><p>the lateral dynamics to an above-average level supported by the perfect </p><p>interplay with the adapted acceleration skid control ASR, the ESP with </p><p>Curve Dynamic Assist and the all-wheel drive control system 4ETS. Also </p><p>new is the specific AMG rear axle transmission with a shorter ratio of </p><p>3.47:1. </p><p>Sophisticated chassis: AIRMATIC air suspension with ADS Plus </p><p>damping system and Sports Direct-Steer system </p><p>As standard, the vehicle comes with the AIRMATIC package including an </p><p>air suspension, infinitely variable adaptive damping system (ADS Plus) </p><p>and automatic level control. The damping system changes its priorities </p><p>from highly dynamic to comfort-orientated depending on the drive </p><p>programme. The current operating conditions are detected via a steering </p><p>angle sensor, four turning angle sensors and the driving speed from the </p><p>ESP signal and the brake pedal switch. The control unit uses these </p><p>signals for infinitely variable adjustment of the current damping force </p></li><li><p>Daimler Communications, 70546 Stuttgart/Germany </p><p>Mercedes-Benz A Daimler Brand </p><p>Page 5 required for each individual wheel. In "Sport" and "Sport Plus" mode the </p><p>body is lowered by 15 millimetres. </p></li><li><p>Daimler Communications, 70546 Stuttgart/Germany </p><p>Mercedes-Benz A Daimler Brand </p><p>Page 6 In combination with the newly configured, degressive Sports Direct-Steer </p><p>system, the steering ratio of which is very direct at 17.4:1, and the </p><p>compact sports steering wheel, the handling is outstanding in all </p><p>operating conditions whether manoeuvring in the city, at high speeds on </p><p>the motorway, or with a brisk style of driving on winding mountain passes. </p><p>Decidedly sporty design </p><p>The sportily striking design makes the enhanced performance discernible </p><p>at first glance: the two chromed twin tailpipe trims and the black-painted </p><p>and high-sheen 50.8 cm (20-inch) 5-spoke light-alloy wheels in the </p><p>dimension 265/45 R 20 plus exclusive trim in black and silver chrome </p><p>ensure a clear differentiation. On request 5-twin-spoke 53.3 cm (21-inch) </p><p>light-alloy wheels are also available. </p><p>The interior of the GLE 450 AMG 4MATIC is enhanced by the nappa </p><p>leather sports steering wheel with its flattened bottom section, as well as </p><p>the trim parts in light longitudinal-grain aluminium and brushed stainless </p><p>steel sports pedals with rubber studs. Sporty round dials on the </p><p>instrument cluster, including a 280 km/h speedometer scale, signal pure </p><p>dynamism even while the car is at a standstill. AMG carbon fibre/black </p><p>piano lacquer trim enhances the appearance of the interior as an </p><p>additional option. </p><p>The standard equipment for the GLE 450 AMG 4MATIC includes </p><p>(selection): </p><p> ADAPTIVE BRAKE </p><p> ATTENTION ASSIST </p><p> COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS </p><p> ECO start/stop function </p><p> ISOFIX child seat attachment in the rear </p><p> PRE-SAFE system </p><p> Tyre pressure monitoring system </p><p> Crosswind Assist </p><p> Front seats electrically adjustable </p></li><li><p>Daimler Communications, 70546 Stuttgart/Germany </p><p>Mercedes-Benz A Daimler Brand </p><p>Page 7 The following appointments are available on request (extract): </p><p> Two-tone black nappa leather in porcelain/black </p><p> COMAND Online </p><p> Bang &amp; Olufsen BeoSound high-end surround sound system </p><p> LED Intelligent Light System </p><p> DISTRONIC PLUS </p><p> Driving Assistance package Plus </p><p> Night package </p><p> Climatised seats for the driver and front passenger </p><p> Contacts: Birgit Zaiser, Press and Public Relations Mercedes-AMG, tel.: +49 (0)7144 302-581, Koert Groeneveld, Global Product Communications Mercedes-Benz Cars, tel.: +49 (0)711 17-92311, Further information about Mercedes-Benz is available online: and </p><p>mailto:birgit.zaiser@daimler.com</p></li></ul>
