After changing the name of the M-Class, the SUV GLE appeared only the last year, but Mercedes-Benz is already working on a new generation of model. Despite the heavy camouflage, we can see that under the disguise there is hiding completely different shape of the body and larger wheel arches. The headlights and tail lights on the prototype are temporary, later they will be replaced by production versions.

It is difficult to determine by sight, but it seems that the car received smaller dimensions than the current GLE, what is a bit strange, because usually the new models are bigger than their predecessors.

The new Mercedes-Benz GLE, which received a code-name W167, will be built on a modular platform MHA. Due to this fact the car will lose weight and will get more powerful and efficient power trains. Rumor say that the Mercedes is working on a new family of in-line 6-cylinder engines for the new E-Class and GLE SUV will also get these motors. It is expected that the official premiere of the novelty will take place in 2018 as a car of 2019 model year.
