2023 Mercedes-Benz GLE 63: what is it?

In what could be the smallest update we’ve ever seen, this is Merc’s monstrously big and monstrously powerful performance SUV, the GLE 63. Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised – the current model has only been on sale for two years.

The main changes in store concern the headlights, which appear to be going slimmer, and the chrome strip on the boot might be disappearing. These areas are still shrouded in camo, but otherwise everything else seems to be staying as it is. 

We got a glimpse of the interior and there it’s a similar story. The steering wheel appears to have changed, it’s now the same wheel used in the new C-Class. But as far as we can tell that’s as far as the update goes.

2023 Mercedes-Benz GLE 63: what is it powered by?

There is no expectation Mercedes will change the recipe underneath the bonnet, which means the GLE 63 will still be powered by a 48v mild hybrid 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine producing 612hp and 850Nm of torque. The current model is good for a 3.8-second 0-62mph sprint and 174mph top speed.
