Post edited. :-)

EDIT: I seem to be all turned around this morning. I mistakenly thought you were quoting my post.
Sorry.

I think you're still messed up! That's not what your edit says, which is what I think you meant.

Designo color Hyacinth Red Metallic not available until 3/19 production per Canadian info. Looks like 21" multi-spoke AMG wheels on that car.
No, have not seen complete specs anywhere yet. Will be in DOG. GLE is still not on the German site.

Thanks that’s a great color! Any speculation on the GLE 53 release? Early 2020 or later in the year?

I don’t know the history of the AMG variant releases, but it seems ready to go so may be more of a marketing decision. Given that more profits are involved I don’t think it will bee too long after the 450.

A start, but need interior dimensions, cargo capacity, curb weight, GVW, towing capacity, fuel tank size, etc.

Some of the information is in the German catalog. Take a look page 57 - catalog

I don’t think so - we’ll have the clunkier but more flexible and adaptable receiver type.

TopSpeed comparison article 9.30.18

Fairly lame article. They talk about the GLE's six-cylinder with EQ Boost then the data panel has the four.

Yeah, probably not. i also read that the neat folding one cuts down on the towing capacity considerably. But it does look cool.

I've been SUV shopping and it feels like there are many models being refreshed / redesigned between now and the next 12-18 months.

I've been hesitant to pull the trigger on the Audi Q7 even though it drives great because it already feels dated somewhat on the interior (poor seats, tiny upholders, no front seat center console storage, and there is no option for a spare tire whatsoever - just a compressor and a can of fix a flat). Also I've been driving Audis for nearly 20 years and I wouldn't mind a change into a different and better ownership experience; is the grass really greener on the other side I wonder?

New BMW X5 (G05) drives well, has an option for a spare OR an emergency 3rd row seat, but my better half was not a fan of the front seats (thigh support in particular).

I visited my local MB dealer yesterday and drove several cars; We ruled out the GLS 450 because it is more vehicle size than we need. The W166 2018 GLE 350 (3.5l + 7 spd) was underwhelming. 2019 GLE 400 with the 3.0l twin turbo + 9 speed was a much better combination, torque application was fantastic, but the handling feels a bit more unsettled versus the other Germans. Then I come home last night to read up on the GLE and I find out about the impending arrival of this new W167 model perhaps as soon as January?!? Not sure if I should shoot for a bargain on the W166 (or the Audi for that matter) or wait for the W167. *sigh*

Do we know if the W167 will come equipped with a spare tire?

I've never owned an Audi, but have owned all three generations of the ML/GLE (the very first of each starting in 1997). All have had some issues but I have found Mercedes service and customer care to be excellent. And the vehicles are just right for our needs. I will be ordering a GLE 450 as soon as they drop. Likely US deliveries will not start until at least March, but nothing definitive from MBUSA yet.

Do we know if the W167 will come equipped with a spare tire?
I'm sure standard in the US will be the #690 Mini Spare Wheel and #B12 Tire Change Toolkit; not an option if you opt for the 3rd row seating, then you get the #B51 TireFit compressor/sealant kit. The mini spare is optional in Germany (as are a lot of things that are standard or packaged for us).

Have you looked at the Q8? They are in dealers now and are getting good reviews from buyers and test drivers.! From what I know the GLE may still be the best choice but until they are available for a personal review it’s still just conjecture. There don’t seem to be the usual professional in depth reviews yet. A little early for the GLE but not for the X5 and Q8. Looks like there are 3 good choices-each with the usual +/- depending on our personal preference.

Ron.s, since you recently purchased a 2018 Audi SQ5, are you thinking about trading it on a new GLE or are you more interested in how the new GLE compares with your SQ5? Have you ever owned a Mercedes? Are you happy with your Audi SQ5?
