AMG engineers are also out testing a GLE53 Coupe. The...

The new GLE should be on sale early next year following a likely debut at November's Los Angeles auto show.

    2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE450 AMG Coupe first drive review

    Mercedes was the first carmaker to coupe all the things. It turned the E-Class sedan into the CLS--something they call a four-door coupe, confusing as that might sound.

The vehicle serves as the replacement for the popular M-Class although the two share most of their internals and even some body panels. Unlike the previous M-Class, the GLE can be ordered as either a regular SUV or as a ‘coupe-like’ SUV. For the latter, both the ride height and roofline have been...
