GLE Weight?

Curious to know what the weight of the new GLE 350 and 450 are? Also does MB give weight distribution between front and real wheels? If so, what are they for these two vehicles? Thanks and appreciate replies.

Interestingly, MB hasn't yet released the 350 or 450 Curb Weights.

Mercedes Germany listed GLE450's curb weight as 2,220kg.
GLE350 is not listed as it is not sold in Germany.
And no weight distribution numbers.

That would make it 4960 lbs.

Curb weight in US includes added weight for normal passenger load - so let's not get too crazed yet.

YES - 2020 GLE and 2020 GLS will be "weight eligible" for Section 179 Bonus Deduction

Here’s Mercedes description of the GLE weight....Curb weight by definition doesn’t include passengers or load. Are you sure that the GLE weight is overstated?
Weights
Curb Weight (lbs). 4,991
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (lbs) 6,614
Towing (lbs) 7,700 est.
Max. total payload (lbs). 1,623

That sounds about right. My '12 ML was 4,753. The '19 X5 is listed at 4,831 (50.1/49.9). The GLE is no lightweight like the Cayenne (4,377). And that is probably the lightest configuration; things like E-ABC, panorama roof, 21" wheels, etc. undoubtedly add weight.
