G as is cheap, and the auto industry is booming again. One of the biggest beneficiaries of this return to bubble-inducing growth spurts? The SUV. You build SUV-like objects in as many flavors as possible. Objects like the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe , a swollen, bulbous appendage to the Mercedes lineup, built off the new E-sized range until recently known as the ML-Class but with swoopier lines and cartoon-huge wheels.
This makes a good deal of business sense, as there is a fairly massive gap in prices between even more well-appointed trims of the mainstream GLE version and the lower 63 AMG trim. But it does fill a hole in the lineup in that way that German automakers love to do.

There is a set of special inch black wheels that come standard, and there is also an optional set of inch wheels.

A Mercedes-AMG engine only starts with the state of the art.
