As far as I know the dealers will only know the day it is updated. Iím guessing (hoping) that one will be out soon since the last two prelims were the first of the month, 7th & 4th.

My dealer is showing 53 Ď18 & Ď19s in stock, including 8 Coupes.

Hi all,

I havebt been on this thread much but I'm narrowing my search down to 2019 X5 and new gle.

Has anyone discussed pricing? Id be interested in the 450. Will third row be avialable from the start? Do we have expected dates it'll arrive or aany idea when configurator will be up online?

X7 numbers came out. Spoke to two dealers. Wanted full MSRP. Base car no option 76.5 was 1163 with over 6k due at signing on a 8 percent tax 36/15. Ouch.
X5 there are reports of dealers going under invoice which is appealing to me as I don't want to spend more than 1k. My wife wants the big GLS but it'll be replaced soon

Anyone secure a good price on the upcoming gle? Thanks!

Pricing is out for everything but a few options. It seems pretty comparable to the X5. Base 450 w/ 3rd row is $64.2k. I have attached the last Dealer Order Guide, which is not 100% final yet. Those of us that ordered in November have early February builds, so should see cars in early March. Ordering now would push those dates out. Configurator should be up soon, but nothing definite from MBUSA.

A few have reported getting some deals, but in general deals much below MSRP will be hard to come by for a while after release.

I didnít count the Coupes or AMG models that arenít being replaced. My thought was that the timing of the release might depend on carry over numbers. If inventory is getting low then MB may decide to move a few weeks sooner. But since itís a slower time of the sales season maybe that wonít be a factor. Also checked a few more dealers and got 0, 1, 3 & 4 non AMG or Coupes.

Greg your dealer has more than the six I checked combined. Mercedes Beverly Hills has one 350, MB San Diego has Six 400’s....no 350’s. Since some of these are probably Service Loaner vehicles the “for sale” numbers are even lower.

And here is the pricing spreadsheet I put together. Option U38 was recently added.

I'm willing to place a wager on that


Actually the reviewers are getting 28 mixed driving with the GLE450 4 Matic.

EPA fuel economy ratings aren’t out yet, but I saw around 28 mpg in mixed driving in both GLEs according to their trip computer.

https://www.thecarconnection.com/ove...gle-class_2020



The GLE450’s 48-volt electric system provides some assist and allows the crossover SUV’s gas engine to turn off under light load cruising situations, which should help fuel economy

On our initial preview drive, we saw an indicated 30 mpg in mostly highway driving in the GLE350 and 27 mpg on a similar route in the GLE450.

https://www.motorauthority.com/news/...ning-dinosaurs






The GLE450’s turbocharged inline-6 is paired to a 48-volt mild hybrid system that adds power and should save fuel. EPA fuel-economy ratings aren’t yet available, but the trip computer said that my test car averaged nearly 30 mpg in mixed driving. A similar drive in a GLE350 returned roughly the same number.

That surprises me but itís a good sign. Hopefully weíll know official numbers soon.

Just got a call from my dealer, Mercedes-Germany confirmed they added (DC7) E-Active Body Control to my build. Now I can hop my way out of the showroom and curve my way home.

I have to give a huge shout-out to Cheryl in Distribution. She called Germany several times over the past 2 weeks in my behalf. Thanks also to MB Germany for the great customer service!

My updated build:

My Cayenne has about that level of extras so spot on there.

Am waiting for the new GLE63 but dreading the cost!!

You can't have leather dash/doors with the technology package. You can have it without, last I heard.

Scheduled to be built the beginning of February (1st decade) so less than a month to go for several of us on this forum.

No, MB-Tex is standard.

Standalone option U38 gives you leather on dash and doors; U09 is MB-Tex.

No. Depends on the color. In Joe’s post above it’s 204. See the spreadsheet I posted in #1859.

For the record a base GLE 450 with Premium 1 and MBUX Technology Package would be less than $66k. Many buyers avoid costly options but I've always wanted them and have been willing to pay to play. But I'm certain a base 350 or 450 will be a very fine SUV.

Cool Base or not

Well, some of us (me), keep going through the Order Guide to see if there's a way to trim down options and keep the GLE cost closer to the amount paid for the previous (2018) version. Not much luck so far...

Pretty tough when MSRP goes up $5k. Previous increases were incremental, but itís right in the ballpark with the competition.
