Tricky tech jacks up GLE

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

Mercedes-benz re­vealed its next-gen GLE SUV ahead of the Paris Mo­tor Show, built on the com­pany’s MHA (Mod­u­lar High Ar­chi­tec­ture) that will also un­der­pin the sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion GLS SUV that’s due to be un­veiled at the LA show in Novem­ber. Head­lin­ing the new-gen­er­a­tion GLE’S fea­tures list is the 48-volt air dampers, which take Benz’s ac­tive sus­pen­sion tech and adds the ca­pa­bil­ity to con­trol pitch and squat move­ments as well as roll. The 2020 GLE will be pow­ered by a fam­ily of 2.9-litre turbo diesels, and a 3.0-litre tur­bocharged petrol in­line-six.
