For instance, Mercedes points out that despite having a larger cabin than the EQE sedan, the EQE SUV is smaller.
In fact, it has a wheelbase that is 3.5 inches (9 centimeters) shorter. As per the report, the “EQE SUV is 191.5 inches (4.86 meters) long, 76.4 inches (1.94 meters) wide and 66.4 inches (1.68 meters) tall.”
It resembles the EQS SUV almost exactly from a design perspective, but the EQE sedan’s front fascia appears much more like it due to the design of the headlights.
The German automaker adds that the EQE SUV is more maneuverable than the three-box vehicle due to its shorter wheelbase. It was also emphasized that “specifying rear-axle steering reduces the turning radius from 40.4 meters to 34.4 meters.”
Remarkably, the ride height can be increased by 1 inch with the addition of air suspension. When all-wheel drive instances are switched to the Off-Road function, it occurs automatically. However, it is not available on rear-wheel drive vehicles.
In addition, EQE SUV offers a unique powertrain, suspension, brake, suspension, and ESP settings. The automaker claims that these features will be remarkable when driving off-road.
It also features the same 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and 12.8-inch center display as EQS SUV. The three-screen, 56-inch Hyperscreen array is an option that significantly changes the way the dashboard looks.
Meanwhile, the report indicated that there would be four versions available:
- The base model EQE 350+ SUV with 288 horsepower and rear-wheel drive
- The EQE 350 4Matic SUV all-wheel drive
- The EQE 500 4Matic SUV with 536 horsepower
- The AMG 53 model at the top of the range
Motor Authority highlighted that the 350+ version would have a single motor at the back with a maximum of 288 horsepower. The dual-motor, all-wheel-drive powertrain for the 350 4Matic version will have the same 288 horsepower rating as the 350+ but with higher torque. On the other hand, the dual-motor, all-wheel-drive powertrain for the 500 4Matic will have 536 horsepower.
Mercedes anticipates that the rear-wheel drive variant will have a range that exceeds 5
