While the pristine sedans, crossovers and SUVs within the Mercedes-Benz lineup are truly stunning on a number of levels, some drivers seek something more distinctive. A design that breaks free from the traditional sedan or coupe. That's why Mercedes-Benz is adding another original design to its lineup in the form of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE450 AMG Sport Kansas City MO. From a styling standpoint, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE450 AMG Sport shares a number of cues with the upcoming Mercedes-AMG GT with its natural shapes and curves, but its sloped roof and unique blend of crossover and coupe attributes help it stand out from the crowd.
At first glance, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE450 AMG Sport Coupe may look like a crossover with its massive 21-inch tires and high ground clearance, but a few minutes behind the wheel will reveal performance that lives up to its coupe billing. With a release date expected sometime in the late summer of 2015, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE450 AMG Sport Kansas City MO is poised to take on the leaders in this niche vehicle segment.
The first model within the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe family debuted at the North American International Auto Show. That model was not only the first GLE Coupe model, but also the first model within the brand’s new AMG Sport category. Equipped with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine that kicks out 362 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE450 AMG Sport Kansas City MO has no shortcomings when it comes to performance.
To further enhance performance, the twin-turbo engine is paired to a 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission that routes power to the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system. Although the 450 AMG Sport Coupe is just one iteration of the GLE Coupe, it gives us a glimpse into what we can expect from the entire GLE Coupe lineup in the future.
Although the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE450 AMG Sport Kansas City MO is classified as a coupe, it has many characteristics and capabilities of a crossover and will appeal to many drivers looking for a blend of luxury and utility. The raised seating within the cabin provides an expansive all-around view while the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system allows drivers to attack challenging terrain with confidence. Furthermore, five transmission modes allow for adjustable vehicle systems to provide sportier performance or optimized handling in certain driving conditions.
