Beauty, as the saying goes, is in the eye of the beholder. And this certainly holds true for the brand-new 2020 Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupé, which made its grand entrance in Jamaica, during a digital launch, at the Mercedes-Benz Showroom on Wednesday, June 24.

The new Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupé uniquely combines sporty design with exhilarating performance and strong off-road capabilities. Its impressive dynamics are enhanced by the 429hp 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine with 48-volt technology, fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive, and AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9-speed automatic transmission.

Driving dynamics are further enhanced by the AMG drive programmes and the AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension based on AIRMATIC. The front grille visually reinforces its membership in the AMG family. In addition, the new GLE 53 Coupé offers all the advantages of a Mercedes SUV: ample space for passengers and luggage, extensive safety features, and superior traction on a variety of surfaces and road conditions.


The newly designed front-end boasts the AMG-specific radiator grille with vertical bars in high-gloss chrome and signature Mercedes-Benz star, which is testament to its outstanding sportiness - a theme that continues all the way to the rear of the vehicle. In addition there are, muscular shoulders and an expressive contour design for the front and taillights with optional multibeam LED headlamps, which include 84 individually controllable high-performance LEDs. Redesigned features include an AMG rear apron with sporty diffuser and an AMG exhaust system with high-gloss chrome-plated twin tailpipe trim elements.


New features that welcome you in the interior include the widescreen cockpit, with two large displays as standard: an all-digital instrument display with four selectable display styles, such as Modern Classic, Sport, Subtle and Supersport; and media display operated via touch control. The standard Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupé interior is recognisable at first glance thanks to characteristic red highlights: red contrasting topstitching on the upholstery elements and red seat belts. A feel-good highlight is the generous rear compartment in which passengers now have even more space and can enjoy a high level of seating comfort.

“The new GLE Coupé adds even more style and elegance to the Mercedes SUV family, together with hallmark AMG features,” said Amanda Lechler, brand manager for Mercedes-Benz Jamaica. “It guarantees a thrilling driving experience with sophisticated suspension technology and powerful, efficient six-cylinder in-line engine with 48-volt technology,” Lechler continued.
