OrangeArt Edition GLE gets extra exterior, interior goodies from AMG
Mercedes-Benz's midsize crossover will be available soon with sublte hints of orange. Simply called OrangeArt, the special edition GLE can come in a variety of dark and bright hues, and will also be fitted with extra goodies from AMG.
Available paint finishes for the GLE OrangeArt Edition include a choice of Black, Obsidian Black, Selenite Gray, Polar White and Designo Diamond Bright. From its namesake, both the front apron and 21-inch AMG lightweight alloys are painted in high gloss black and come with orange higlights. Also fitted as standard on the GLE OrangeArt is the Intelligent Light System which gives the headlights a black LED ring.
Inside, more subtle hints of the color orange make their way throughout the cabin of the special edition GLE. Both the black nappa leather sport seats and door center panels come with Dinamica microfiber and feature orange piping and gray stitching. The floor mats come with AMG lettering and piping in orange as well while brushed stainless steel sport pedals come with rubber studs and aluminum trim.
A total of four engine choices are available for the GLE OrangeArt Edition. The sole turbo-diesel model in the lineup is the GLE 350 d4MATIC. It's propelled by a 3.0-liter V6 that puts out 258 PS and 620 Nm of torque.
Next up are the two 3.0-liter gasoline biturbo V6s, the GLE 400 4MATIC and the AMG GLE 43 4MATIC. The former generates 333 PS with 480 Nm of torque while the latter cranks out 390 PS with 520 Nm of torque.
At the top of the range is the GLE 500 4MATIC which is powered by a 4.7-liter biturbo V8. It is capable of producing 455 PS along with healthy 700 Nm of torque.
The special edition OrangeArt GLEs will be available in European showrooms come August.
