Upfront, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE's face appears to have taken inspiration from the X-Class pickup truck, featuring an octagonal grille above the chrome-plated skid plate followed by power dome-like character line on the bonnet. While the profile appears to be very similar, GLE gets new ORVMs and an 80 mm longer wheelbase now. The SUV will be offered with wheel size options ranging from 18-22 inches. The rear section, on the other hand, has been extensively tweaked, and now features a pair of new LED taillamps, revised tailgate, and a new rear bumper with the horizontal chrome-tipped exhaust on either end.
