The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class ranked #12 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 46 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Lots of powerful engine choices

Lengthy features list

Cons
Less athletic than many competitors

Performance, plug-in, or pedestrian: there’s a 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE for almost every luxury-SUV buyer.

Pros
Wide palette of body styles, powertrains, trims
GLE Coupe, for the well-to-do contrarian
Powertrain choice abounds
Composed, quiet ride

Cons
AMG = $$$
Not so fuel-efficient
Addled infotainment interface
Odd feature availability
Coupe body costs money, space

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The AMG GLE 43 is slightly more powerful, increasing engine output from 362 horsepower to 385 hp. Otherwise, the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class is unchanged for 2018.

PROS
Multiple available powertrains make each model distinct
Interior is quiet, upscale and roomy
Abundant list of standard safety, tech and luxury features
AMG variants are seriously quick

CONS
Not many places to store small personal items
Punishing ride on AMG models, with little benefit to handling
Ride quality with the standard suspension isn't as comfy as we expect
Base V6's acceleration is merely adequate

By:

Not much. Mechanically the Tahoe remains unchanged, as does the interior. New items are limited to the wheels: Chevy offers new 22-inch gloss-black aluminum wheels with custom silver accents and 22-inch machined-aluminum wheels with a bright silver finish.

Pros
Rugged construction, 8600-pound max tow rating, quiet cabin.

Cons
Cramped third row, high load floor, not fuel efficient.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe comes with four wheel drive, and rear wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed shiftable automatic.Minor revisions to optional feature availability.

Pros
Seating for up to nine people
Standard V8 offers impressive towing capability
Interior is well-trimmed and quiet
Optional 6.2-liter V8 adds performance and capability

Cons
Sluggish engine and brake responses
High trunk floor makes loading difficult and reduces cargo space
Maneuvering in tight spaces is a challenge

By: 
edmunds.com

In its last year before a redesign, the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe offers old-school SUV chops with a heaping helping of additional options and features.

Pros
Strong V-8 engines
Easy infotainment system
Plenty of options
Big, luxurious cabin
Massive towing capacity

Cons
Truck-like ride and handling
Subpar efficiency
High cargo floor
Tiny storage behind third row
Crossovers and minivans offer more space
