You don’t have to - just gives people some context.

I never had any vehicle with Head-up Display, is it worth it or just another gadget? Does it get you distracted looking at it when driving?

Interior Assistant is what recognizes driver vs. passenger hand & arm gestures. See video link in post #1005.
Have head up display on my M4 and love it - opposite of a distraction. You don’t have to look down at the instruments to get all relative info. One on my car is tough to see with polarized sunglasses, though.

Inside job, ha ha.

The current embargo on full driving reviews of the 2020 GLE is to be lifted this Wednesday, November 21 so in addition to numerous reviews, we should soon know base pricing and get an updated US DOG.

Even though the 22" wheels don't appear in the initial US DOG, does anyone think there's a chance M.B. will offer them in the next revision of the US DOG? Why can German buyers order this wheel on a GLE 450 but not here in the US where it's built? Very odd decision.

And why can't we select the MBUX Technology Package along with the Burmester® High-End 3D Surround Sound System? I'm not willing to give up the MBUX Technology Package but I would love to option both.

Some of these restrictions are real head-scratchers.

Can't wait!

My guess is it is a way to differentiate the forthcoming GLE 53 & 63 from the lesser. The AMG Sport Line package will make the 450 virtually indistinguishable from the 53. Marketing, baby. ROW is just different, like be able to order vehicle debadged.
And why can't we select the MBUX Technology Package along with the Burmester® High-End 3D Surround Sound System? I'm not willing to give up the MBUX Technology Package but I would love to option both. Some of these restrictions are real head-scratchers.
Only thing I can think is space constraints. The extra speakers and equipment for the 25-speaker system may conflict with items in the Technology Package; e.g., speaker units in the headliner conflict with the sensors for the Interior Assistant.

Those are nice! Beautiful car, infinite95. Is that a wrap or custom paint?

As usual Greg, you're the voice of reason on the forum. Just wanted to vent some frustration (I'm known for that.)

I'm sure there will be several out Wednesday to be the "first." You might even see some middle of the night because in Europe Wednesday comes sooner!

Just got off the phone with my dealer. I called to ask if my order was allocated. At first he said he couldn't find any change in the order status but after searching for any possible allocations throughout the country, he said my order updated and now shows a first decade February build. Did anyone else get bumped up to the first decade of February?

BTW, I wanted to order the R77 21" wheels but they're not available with the AMG Line Exterior package. I selected the RZV 20” AMG Twin 5-Spoke Wheels instead. I'll try to purchase the 22" AMG wheels down the road for my summer tires.

As long as they're ready to post and just waiting for the embargo lift, we should see some early tonight. Embargo lifts at 12:01 am CET, which is 6:01 pm EST.

GLE at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show 11/30-12/9

Daimler 11/20 press release:

"The new Mercedes-Benz GLE will celebrate its public premiere in the USA (at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show). With its innovative 48 V suspension and the fully variable MATIC (sic) all-wheel drive available for the first time (from six cylinder variants upwards), it is as comfortable as a luxury saloon on the road and more assertive than ever when off-road."

I'm guessing US pricing and website update may be waiting for this debut.

Mid-afternoon for me! I bet they scheduled this knowing many people are off work the next few days and will have time to see the articles.

TBD
Production scheduled for first decade in February!

Also I'm back to contemplating on adding the Night Package to my black car. Hmm....options.

I'm being told that I probably have a couple of weeks before the order gets locked from any additional changes....FYI for others in the first Feb decade build.

Hopefully they'll have a US version of the amg exterior package and we'll be able to see what functional sport exhausts means.
