Serving Milwaukee, WI

Refinement and exceptional performance are within reach with the latest Mercedes-Benz SUVs, including the enhanced GLE and GLS models. While both are engineered for smooth on-road cruising, they also excel in more demanding driving scenarios. With updates to both models and notable distinctions, a comprehensive assessment with our knowledgeable team at Mercedes-Benz of Milwaukee North is the logical next step.


The 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLE is ingeniously crafted with a variety of available powertrains. The initial option is a four-cylinder turbocharged 255-horsepower engine, which can be paired with front-wheel or optional 4MATIC® all-wheel drive and an automatic nine-speed transmission. Additionally, a 362-horsepower V6 engine is also on offer. Both of these systems incorporate mild-hybrid technology. For those seeking peak power, the GLE offers a turbocharged four-cylinder plug-in hybrid engine, generating a total of 381 horsepower. Conversely, the GLS is available with two hybrid powerplant options: a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 delivering 375 horsepower and a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 producing an exhilarating 510 horsepower. These units come equipped with e-Active Body Control and an air suspension system.


The 2024 GLE exudes confidence and elegance through its premium exterior design. While the sides feature subtle contours, the elongated hood boasts crisp defining lines. At the front, the grille stands tall with a stardust mesh pattern and large angled air vents featuring horizontal accents. The premium headlights include an upper LED bar and upper and lower LED dashes, framing the sophisticated bar-style grille and accentuating the powerful air intakes. On the other hand, the 2024 GLS commands attention with its taller stance, more pronounced side accents, and muscular hood. The grille and air vents showcase horizontal bars, while a black element outlines the air vents. The headlights proudly display vertical LED bars and a larger encompassing LED ribbon on top.


Whether you opt for the 2024 GLE or GLS, both are lavishly appointed with an array of comparable features. These include a voice-activated assistant, seamless wireless smart device connectivity, a 360-degree camera, a navigation system enhanced with augmented reality, a digital driver’s gauge cluster, sumptuous leather upholstery, a striking 64-color ambient lighting system, heated and ventilated seats equipped with massage functions, and a premium sound system, among other amenities. Notably, the GLS elevates the experience with an enhanced sound system, a fragrance system, wireless chargers in both rows, a tablet controller for second-row passengers, an upgraded climate control system, and several additional premium features.
