Mercedes new-generation GLE Coupe isn’t too far away from production lines. The model will most probably make its official debut early next year. After that, the automaker will introduce an AMG-enhanced version of the coupe-like crossover. The hot car isn’t going to be ready before late 2019, so it won’t be available in showrooms before 2020. Except it’s going to make the fully fledged GLE 63 Coupe, AMG will also introduce a successor for the GLE 43 Coupe which will be named the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupe.
This particular prototype is definitely the entry-level AMG GLE 53 Coupe. I know that thanks to the single-bar in the front and a pair of round exhaust tips around back. The vanilla 63 model for an example hosts the multi-slatted Panamericana grille and quad squared exhausts.
On the other hand, compared to the regular GLE Coupe, the base AMG model sits lower to the ground and rides on larger wheels with bigger brakes. Also, there are more massive front and rear spoilers, as well as the sporty diffuser.
The cabin of the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupe will get the double 12.3-inch displays for the instrument cluster and a far better infotainment system. Yes, in addition to the new MBUX, the car will also feature AMG graphics.
Under the hood, the coupe-SUV will definitely have a slight electrical voltage in form of the EQ Boost system. More precisely, the feature will help the new twin-turbo inline-6 to develop an impressive output of 429 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of twist. The system will be paired with a 9-speed auto gearbox and all-wheel-drive.
