Cost, Performance Specs, and Customizability

Sure, the base model of the Mercedes-Benz GLE doesn’t offer the BMW X5’s V8 567 hp engine. However, the base model of the GLE still delivers plenty of pep at a significantly lower cost. The MSRP of the base Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV starts at $40,050, but you’ll still find a massive turbocharged 2.0-Liter, I4 engine. The MSRP of the BMW X5, however, starts at a whopping $101,700.

If you’re looking for more muscle, however, then you’ll find that engine upgrades on the Mercedes-Benz GLE outclass the BMW X5:
