Does anyone know if the car offers reversing cross traffic alert?

Super frustrated that my sales contact hasn't gotten back to me with the NetStar data. They kind of seem to be playing dumb and avoiding giving me an update on the vehicles estimated completion date. I'm worried my build is one of those that's been pushed back to Q3 or, yikes, Q4. Unfortunately, there's not a single car with a similar build available within 1,000 miles of me right now. It would be nice just to have some idea of when it might be completed. If it's not until September or later, I'd probably move on. Of course, I can't tell the dealer that because they'd have no incentive to tell me if that's the case.

That's poor service - go up to the sales manager and tell him you are not getting taken care of.

You should be able to at least get an idea of when is your allocation and when is the estimated time to finish. Just tell them if you canít get that info, then you walk with your money. Youíre the customer. Youíre the one with all the leverage. If they have no idea, then you can make your decision then.

Would be better to deal with a sales person, most likely. Managers are often busy running things and can't be bothered with customer requests, unfortunately.

That is from the 4/2/19 Dealer Order Guide. It is a package, not a standalone. Also attached is my ordering spreadsheet.

It drives nice on a flat road but when you hit a pothole, you feel it real good. I am little bit worried about reviews online about air suspension. Hopefully, Ron.S may share more of his experience.
Iíve been on the road all day enjoying the GLE. Now with 2100 miles and more time I have mixed emotions on the Airmatic settings. Comfort is a plusher ride around town and takes the edge off of sharp bumps. You still feel them. On the highway itís soft but you get some lean in corners and not enough damping on large swells at speed, almost feels like it bottoms. This is a rare occurrence so maybe not worth mentioning. Works very well most of the time but might want to go to Sport Mode for more aggressive driving.
Sport Mode is my favorite with a good balance of not too stiff yet not too compliant. I have my Individual Mode set with Sport Mode Suspension now....actually all Sport Mode except Comfort for the engine. The only problem is that the Mode resets to Comfort after I turn off the vehicle. Thereís a setting thatís supposed to give you a notice at start up to select ďIĒ but itís not working. Need to research in the manual-maybe my misunderstanding. I have never had soft suspension so that might distort my perspective.
i think the Airmatic is a bargain and gives you some options to tailor it more to what you like. Not perfect but a good add if your budget has room.

I agree that you should be able to set the Drive Mode in your profile so it doesn't default to comfort. The way Mercedes has done the user profiles seems cumbersome. On my BMW the memorized settings are key-dependent, so whatever key is used to unlock adjusts everything. To have to go into the multimedia display and select my profile after my wife has driven is inconvenient. Also, supposedly the seat memories using the buttons on the door should be usable with the ignition off, but they don't seem work for me. So I have to squeeze into the car adjusted for my 5'-4" wife to turn it on and select my profile.

Read the manual again and it says I have to save the setting to my profile for the prompt to use the last setting to appear. I didn’t do that and if It that works at least it will save one step in activating it.
Sorry about your seat....I’ve had that happen also.

I got the prompt working by saving my settings while in I Mode. Set To I before turning off the car. When the car starts a prompt appeared across the top of my screen saying to tap if I want to continue in the last setting of Individual Mode. Itís only there 2-3 seconds and the only way it would work was to tap the screen prompt not the touch pad. Not ideal but a small step forward.

Theyíve made it harder than it needs to be. Either make the profiles key dependent, or use the 3 memory buttons on the door to call up your profile. Doing so many things through the screen interface is great for programmers, but not so much for real owners, IMHO.

I agree 100%. Every brand seems to put out a great product in many ways yet screw up too many other functions. They need to get more input from normal people.
As I wade through the Manual and complexities I wonder how many owners will just give up.

Absolutely. The car can do amazing things, but getting it to do what you want can be so complex that many will only use 10% of the capability. Dumb it down a bit and make basic functions more accessible and the customer will be happier.

Finally something on the GLE 580:


Mercedes-Benz will further expand the GLE model range with the introduction of the V8-powered Mercedes-Benz GLE 580 4MATIC. The all- new Mercedes-Benz GLE introduced a host of new innovations that established new benchmarks in the industry. For example, the GLE is the first SUV in the Mercedes-Benz line up to introduce the revolutionary new E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL suspension – the world’s first 48-volt active suspension system. The new generation GLE also premiered extended driver assistance systems with Active Stop-and-Go Assist and an available third row seat for the first time. The redesigned, luxurious GLE interior features the latest technology from Mercedes-Benz including the revolutionary Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX). This game-changing infotainment system offers intelligent voice control and natural language understanding, dual 12.3” digital touchscreen media displays, and augmented reality (AR) video for navigation.

At the heart of the GLE 580 4MATIC is the powerful, electrified V8 biturbo gasoline engine with a 48-volt on-board electrical system and integrated starter generator. This sophisticated powerplant offers an impressive output of 483 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. In addition, the GLE 580 4MATIC is capable of producing an extra 184 lb-ft of torque and 21 horsepower through EQ Boost over short periods. The integrated starter generator (ISG) is responsible for hybrid functions such as EQ Boost and energy recuperation, resulting in fuel savings previously reserved for high-voltage hybrid technology.

The innovative ISG eliminates the need for a belt drive for ancillary components at the front of the engine, which reduces its overall length. The slim design of the engine, together with the physical separation of the intake/exhaust, creates space for a close-coupled exhaust after treatment.

The 48 V on-board electrical system serves not only high power consumers, such as the water pump and air-conditioning compressor, but also the integrated starter-generator (ISG), which also supplies energy to the battery by means of highly efficient energy recuperation.

The GLE 580 4MATIC also boasts the latest technological innovations from Mercedes-Benz including the variable 4MATIC all-wheel drive system. The revolutionary Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) multimedia system with Voice Control and natural language understanding is further enhanced with the newly available MBUX Interior Assistant. This update allows for intuitive operation of different comfort and MBUX functions by movement recognition.

In addition to its powerful exterior design, the new GLE offers an entirely redesigned interior with a dual 12.3” digital instrument cluster and touchscreen display, increased space and legroom for passengers and integrated grab handles on the center console.

Starting at $76,800,* the GLE 580 4MATIC features an extensive list of standard equipment including AIRMATIC air suspension with adaptive damping, leather upholstery, and exterior AMG Line, and it is optionally available with 22” wheels.

The new Mercedes-Benz GLE 580 4MATIC joins the GLE 350, GLE 350 4MATIC and GLE 450 4MATIC models, and will go on sale in the U.S. in late 2019.

Wow, 77 grand is a hefty price tag for a v8...does this mean the 53 amg's price tag is low 70's/high 69's since the 580 slots above the 53amg and the 450? It will be interesting to see how customers will decide between the 53amg and the 580...

$15,650 gets you 121 hp, 147 lb-ft, AMG Line Exterior, 20" AMG wheels (22" option), Airmatic, Premium Package & leather upholstery. So the V8 costs $7,220 as I figure it; not bad. The 53 will likely be less, but the 580 will go away by the time that & the 63 comes out, so no choice.
