Mercedes-Benz's all-new GLE Coupe is aimed at buyers looking for a nimble, sporty crossover. The derivative of the four-door M-class crossover has four doors and a coupelike roofline, and will compete primarily with BMW's X6. It will be introduced next month at the Detroit auto show and will be produced at Mercedes' factory near Tuscaloosa, Ala. It is expected to be priced higher than the M class, which starts at $49,225, including shipping. Initially, the U.S. will get the GLE 450 AMG 4Matic Coupe with all-wheel drive. The engine is a bi-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 that generates 362 hp.
