Introduction

What Car? says...

The Mercedes GLE is not the first of the German brand’s models to be born in the USA – it’s the latest in a long line of luxury SUVs that the famous three-pointed star has built in America.

Starting with the M-Class when Tony Blair was still in power, big Mercedes SUVs have been rolling off the production line in Tuscaloosa, Alabama for generations. The name may have been changed to GLE but the recipe remains the same: take a tall, generously proportioned body (for a family and all its clutter), mix in a wide range of petrol and diesel engines, then season it with a generous sprinkling of luxuries.
