Am I missing something?

MBUSA configurator indicates that I can't order MBUX without leather seat /massage chair and diver assistance package is only available in the 450. Is this for real?

Hi Ned. MBUX is standard on all 2020 GLE's so I think what you are actually referring to is the MBUX Technology Package which adds Augmented Video, Head Up, and Interior Assistant. If you do not select this package you still get MBUX.

I believe the Driver Assistance Package is available on the 350 as I have seen it on various MB dealer listings of the 350 with it equipped. The configurator doesn't have it as an option on the 350, though, for some reason...

A gaggle of MB's
Please understand to "get" Driver's Assistance - which can be added to either 350W4 or 450W4 - you need Parking Assist (reasonable) + leather interior (not MB-Tex - which is wierd) + some added indiv seats options (more wierd) ) and

From the listings (two listings at two different dealers) it was the complete Drivers Assistance Package. I'm going to test drive a GLE350 this weekend, so I'll find out for sure then...

Drivers assistance

Some "driver assistance" things come standard on the 450 now, the blind spot, etc.... There is an extra driver's assistance package that you can get, plus the surround camera in a separate package. The DOG is pretty clear about that.

Correct. The drivers assistance package is not appearing as an option for the 350 in the configurator. However, I have seen listings online from two different dealers on two different 350s that have the full drivers assistance package. So, it would seem the configurafor is wrong.

The configurator is buggy so follow the DOG and check with your dealer to verify what can or cannot be ordered.

The Configurator is simply not a system to order from. Eventually it may be accurate and complete, but now it's just a tool to help give you information and colors to help with a buy decision. You need to sit down with a dealer SA at this point to get accurate vehicle information.

I plan on checking them out at the dealer this Saturday. By the way, is the DOG available online to non-dealers - aka a layperson like me?

Mercedes Benz of Rockville Center, NY lists twelve (12) 2020 GLE 450 on their web page at prices from $67,380 to $91.450. The lower priced SUVs appear to be product intended to 'fill the pipeline' and the higher priced examples probably custom ordered: https://www.mbrvc.com/new-vehicles/#...GLE+450&page=1

Sat in my first GLE4 350/450 at Nashville Mercedes Benz. Loved the outside look but the inside with the handles on the console it feels more restricted, ie narrower, than my 2015 ML. Saw a GLE350 and looked under the hood and it look strange with such a little engine sitting in there. Just from the outside appearance, most people will not be interested the older Ml/GLE, should be able to get W166 much cheaper now.

Thanks. This is mostly a recapitulation of the 11/21/18 Daimler press release which was posted in #1162. Here it is again for everyone's reference.
