In combination with the ADS Adaptive Damping System, the air suspension delivers excellent road roar and tyre vibration characteristics and outstanding driving dynamics to the road or the track. The damping at each wheel is adapted to the current driving situation.
The settings "Comfort", "Sport" and "Sport" allow the driver to choose between the AIRMATIC package's more comfortable and sportier settings. At high speeds, the vehicle lowers itself by up to 15 millimetres to reduce wind resistance and further increase stability.
The pneumatic all-round self-levelling system keeps the vehicle body level constant, independently of the load it is carrying. In order to increase its off-road capability the body can be raised by up to 60 millimetres, and with the optional Off-Road Engineering package by as much as 90 millimetres.
Standard equipment for the GLE 500 4MATIC. Not available for the GLE 450 AMG 4MATIC or Mercedes-AMG Performance vehicles.
The damping system adjusts to the actual driving and road conditions at each wheel. The fully-variable adjustable damping system effectively reduces rolling and pitching movements.
The settings "Comfort", "Sport" and "Sport" allow the driver to choose between the AIRMATIC package's more comfortable and sportier settings. In the "Sport" drive mode the vehicle body is lowered by 15 millimetres, in the "Sport+" setting it is lowered by 25 millimetres.
The pneumatic all-round self-levelling system ensures a constant vehicle level independently of its load. Automatic lowering to sports level takes place at speeds above 80 km/h in the "Comfort" ride mode.
Only available for the GLE 450 AMG 4MATIC or Mercedes-AMG Performance vehicles.
The designo Exclusive package underscores the exclusivity of the vehicle interior with high-quality details and attractive colour combinations. The seats with their exclusive diamond-pattern quilting, fine designo nappa leather and "designo" badges, communicate a high-value character.
A combination of various security features help to effectively warn of break-ins, theft and being towed away. An alarm is triggered upon unauthorised intrusions or changes in the vehicle's attitude.
The anti-theft protection package provides audible and visual warnings if the vehicle is broken into or stolen; for example in the event of unauthorised opening of the vehicle doors, tailgate or bonnet. The system is activated automatically when the vehicle is locked using the remote control.
Tow-away protection reacts to changes in the vehicle's position. This function can be deactivated if necessary, for instance, in order to load the vehicle onto a transport, or if the vehicle has to be towed.
Driving Assistance Plus package (optional)
This combination of complementary safety and assistance systems helps to relieve driver stress, reduces the risk of accidents and improves protection for both the occupants and other road users.
While the EASY-PACK liftgate facilitates loading and unloading, the power closing function ensures that the doors are securely locked. The reversing camera enlarges the visible area behind the vehicle and thus makes manoeuvring in tight parking spaces more relaxed.
If the vehicle is used by several persons, this package offers particular convenience. Up to three different positions for the power-adjustable front seats, steering column and exterior mirrors can be stored at the touch of a button and retrieved. The package also assists when parking.
The Off-Road Engineering package offers even better off-road capability. The modified characteristics of the drive system optimise traction in particular on loose terrain.
Whether on or off-road, on easy or difficult terrain, on fast bends or in snow – the Off-Road Engineering package makes it possible to adjust handling to suit the situation at hand to perfection, just by turning the DYNAMIC SELECT rotary switch.
City traffic is full of problems. Narrow streets, lack of parking spaces, these things are daily challenges – for every driver. It can thus be very helpful if a vehicle can make itself narrower.
We keep you on track. And warn you if another vehicle gets too close to you. Or you to the other vehicle. An intelligent system that the driver will soon come to appreciate.
