AIRMATIC package (optional)
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.
AIRMATIC package incl. ADS PLUS
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.
designo Exclusive package (optional)
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.
Not available for Mercedes-AMG Performance models.
Anti-theft protection package (optional)
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.
Active Blind Spot Assist (optional)
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.
Particularly in town driving, the BAS PLUS with Cross-Traffic Assist brake assistant and the PRE-SAFE® Brake can reduce the risk of collisions at junctions and rear-end collisions as well as accidents involving pedestrians.
Active Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist help prevent the driver inadvertently drifting out of the lane and from changing lane if there is a risk of a collision. Through selective brake actuation they can help to steer the vehicle back into lane.
PRE-SAFE® PLUS expands the PRE-SAFE® preventive occupant protection system to include protective measures in the event of an imminent rear impact.
DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist and Stop&Go Pilot helps the driver to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front and stay in the centre of the lane.
Comfort package (optional)
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.
Memory package (optional)
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.
When reverse gear is engaged, the passenger-side exterior mirror automatically lowers to provide the driver a better overview. When reverse gear is disengaged again, the mirror pivots back to its original position.
If you are into black, sporty and expressive, you'll love this package. Because it allows you to further customise your vehicle with exclusive, high-quality details. The package is based on the AMG Line Exterior.
Striking design elements in black underscore the sporty, expressive character of the vehicle – from the two louvres on the radiator trim to the exterior mirror and roof rails, to the AMG 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels.
Further black elements include: the underguard and the beltlines. The heat-insulating tinted glass in rear doors and rear window for privacy and sun protection underscore the vehicle's sporty presence.
Only available in conjunction with the optional AMG Line design and equipment line (exterior).
Off-road engineering package
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.
A total of six programmes are available to choose from via DYNAMIC SELECT – two programmes assist the driver when driving on a difficult surface. Depending on the programme, various characteristics such as those for ESP®, 4ETS, ASR, steering, ground clearance, air suspension and damping can be automatically adjusted.
The drive mode selected is displayed in the instrument cluster and shown in the head unit through animation, e.g. showing incline and the angle of ascent. For off-road driving, there are the options "Off-road" for sand and light terrain and "Off-road+" for difficult terrain. The most recently selected setting will be stored for up to four hours after switching off the ignition.
Only available for the GLE 250 d 4MATIC, GLE 350 d 4MATIC, GLE 400 4MATIC and GLE 500 4MATIC.
Parking package with 360-degree camera (optional)
Parking as if by magic: All you need to do is operate the accelerator, the vehicle does the rest. It doesn't get much easier. This is provided by the two central components in this extraordinary package.
Active Parking Assist with PARKTRONIC makes finding a parking space easier, as well as parking and exiting both parallel spaces or car park spaces. It automatically steers the vehicle into parking spaces and frees the driver from having to steer and brake.
The 360° camera provides you with a realistic all-round view thanks to the interaction of four cameras. A bird's-eye view of the vehicle and its surroundings is then displayed on the COMAND Online screen. This makes obstacles below the level of the windowlines visible. The system is automatically activated when you engage reverse. Or you can also activate the camera manually.
Smartphone Integration package (optional)
This package allows compatible smartphones running iOS or Android operating systems to be integrated into the vehicle via Apple CarPlay™ and MirrorLink™ and to be controlled by voice commands, for example. The system supports the major applications and selected apps including navigation.
Apple CarPlay™, for example, supports telephony, navigation, audio, receiving and sending text messages and e-mails, as well as Siri voice control. The selected third-party apps likewise supported include Stitcher Radio and Spotify (the right to make changes to the integrated mercedes-Benz apps is reserved).
To prevent driver distraction while on the move, there is no complete duplication of smartphone content.
A data connection via the mobile phone is necessary for certain functions. Charges may be incurred, depending on the mobile phone contract. The supported functions also depend on the smartphone and market. The information provided by the smartphone manufacturer will also indicate the compatible devices and functions.
Mirror package (optional)
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.
Both exterior mirrors can be power-adjusted and -folded at the push of a button to protect the mirror housing against damage, for instance when parking. For improved vision and visibility the exterior mirror on the driver's side and the interior mirror automatically dim steplessly.
The logo lamps integrated into the door mirrors project the Mercedes star onto the ground.
Lane Tracking package (optional)
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.
The combination of Blind Spot Assist and Lane Keeping Assist bears a two-fold safety benefit. The systems can warn drivers visually and audibly of vehicles in the blind spot and use pulsating steering-wheel vibrations to warn of inadvertent lane departures.
If a vehicle is detected in the blind spot area, a red triangle appears in the relevant exterior mirror. If the driver fails to notice the warning and indicates to signal a lane change, the warning light starts to flash and an audible warning is sounded.
Lane Keeping Assist can identify an unintentional drifting out of lane, send a tactile warning (steering-wheel vibrations) to the driver.
