Rocking all the same quality bits as the standard GLE but with a more stylish rear end, the GLE53 Coupe offers some serious performance, albeit one tick below the top-tier AMG 63 variant.

But it's not alone; the straight-six mates to a 48-volt electrical system and an electric motor that can produce an additional 21 hp and 184 lb-ft.
