• Mercedes-AMG GLE43 SÚV Becomes Ninth AMG 43 Model in the Ú.S.

November 01, 2016 - Atlanta -- Mercedes-Benz ÚSA today announced the 2017 AMG GLE43 SÚV, the ninth model in its new line of AMG 43 performance vehicles. Replacing the GLE400 by early 2017 as a more performance-oriented variant, the 2017 GLE43 SÚV is a companion model to the GLE43 Coupe. The GLE43 SÚV features a 362 hp AMG-enhanced 3.0L V6 biturbo powertrain in a roomy five- passenger SÚV package.

Beginning as an independent tuner and racer of Mercedes-Benz vehicles and now an integral part of Daimler AG, AMG marks its 50th year in 2017 wîth the widest selection of vehicles in its history.

'The expansion of the AMG lineup underscores the ongoing demand for performance-oriented vehicles, especially for SÚVs,' said Branden Coté, AMG Manager. 'AMG is well-positioned in the ÚS marketplace due to our nine new AMG 43 vehicles, four of which are performance-oriented SÚV models. We will continue to build the AMG brand and portfolio in 2017 wîth more variants such as the model year 2018 AMG GT R and the GT/GT C Roadsters.'

Powered by an AMG-enhanced 3.0L V6 biturbo engine producing 362 hp and 384 lb-ft of peak torque, all AMG 43 models are equipped wîth the AMG-enhanced 9G- TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission.
