The Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is making a comeback in a batch of very revealing spy images.
BMW better watch out as Mercedes-Benz is just about ready to come out with an X6 rival which will likely be commercialized with the "GLE Coupe" moniker. Basically a production version of the Concept Coupe SUV, the crossover will adopt a more sloped roofline compared to the ML upon which is based to create what some consider as being a sleeker look but with a significantly smaller trunk as seen in previous spy shots.
The latest batch of photos provides us with the best look so far at the GLE Coupe as only the front and rear fascias remain covered under a thin sheet of camouflage. It looks a lot sportier than the ML but given the nature of this relatively new body style, it will certainly receive a lot of criticism just like the X6.
In two of the attached photos you will also notice the AMG version featuring a peculiar orange camouflage and carrying a beefier body to match the V8 twin-turbo 5.5-liter engine from the ML 63 AMG where it develops 525 HP (386 kW).
The GLE Coupe will be manufactured in United States at Mercedes-Benz's Tuscaloosa, Alabama factory. Sales of the standard model will begin in the third quarter of 2015 while the AMG variant will probably arrive around six months later.
