Mercedes-Benz GLE Class – 2016-Present
Mercedes M Class – 2012-2015
Mercedes-Benz GLE Class History
When Mercedes created its new nomenclature for the 2016 model year there was no M-Class in sight. Luckily, that wasn’t the end of the automaker’s mid-size SUV. One of the first SUVs in Mercedes’ lineup when it debuted in 1997 it’s now in its third generation. It’s been around since 2011 so there’s a good chance a fourth generation is around the corner. Another sign of a next-generation GLE-Class SUV is the introduction of a GLE-Class Coupe for 2016.
