About the M-Class

The Mercedes-Benz M-Class was a mid-size SUV that was in production since 1997 up until its name change in 2015. At this point, Mercedes-Benz renamed it to the GLE Class.

During its time on the market, there have been four generations. The latest version made its debut in 2019. These different versions have been given the designations W165, W164, W165, W166, and W167.

Mercedes-Benz updated its name for several reasons. One of the notable reasons was the conflicting names between the model and the BMW M model range. It was also done to streamline their SUV range with all model names including a ‘GL’ naming convention.

It features the 5-door layout typical to the SUV class and has been outfitted with various luxury stylings found in other models like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class in terms of luxury fittings. This is how it was given the name ‘GLE’. It s offered with either rear-wheel or four-wheel drive.

Competition for the GLE comes from the BMW X5, Range Rover Sport, Audi Q7, and Volkswagen Touareg. However, there are other competitors due to the popularity of the class.

Trim levels consist of approximately four models. These start with the base rear-wheel-drive 350 model, followed by 350, 450, and premium 580, all of which come with their 4MATIC and 4MATIC+ drive systems.

There have also been several high-performance versions powered by AMG.

Petrol engines have ranged from a 2-liter inline-4 up to the bi-turbocharged 5.5-liter V8 engine found in the AMG models. Most of these engines are turbocharged, while newer models are limited to a bi-turbo 4-liter V8 with mild hybrid technology.

Diesel options have traditionally been sizably smaller, with engines ranging from a turbocharged 2-liter inline-4 up to a 3-liter inline-6 version.

Mercedes-Benz introduced hybrid technology very early on, all the way in the second generation which was released in 2005.
