Comparing the Design Features of the 2022 GLE and the 2022 X5

Beauty comes in many forms, two of which are captured by the GLE and the X5. Both vehicles are stunning in their own right, but the one for you will depend on how you want to complement your style. For the BMW X5, aggressive styling conveys a vehicle that is plenty brawny to put the power down when needed and can easily turn heads as it’s driven down the road. The 2022 GLE, on the other hand, doesn’t need to take such drastic measures. Its sophistication is evident without reaching to appear as such; it just comes naturally. Smooth body lines over a stout stance help the GLE to stand proud. It’s elegant, not arrogant. See a 2022 GLE in our showroom at Mercedes-Benz of Orland Park today.

There are six unique engine configurations available, each of which is well-equipped for general purpose uses but has unique specific strengths. The entry-level engine for the 2022 GLE is turbocharged with a displacement of 2.0L, and while it may not be as powerful as the X5’s entry-level engine (a 3.0L turbo), it is more fuel-efficient with up to 27 mpg on the highway.
