Mercedes-Benz M-Class will change name into GLE-Class starting next year

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 26, 2014

As you may know already, BMW started to overhaul its naming scheme last year when the 3-Series Coupe became the 4-Series Coupe and when the 1-Series Coupe became the 2-Series Coupe. It appears that another German car manufacturer, Mercedes-Benz, will follow BMW. After it changed the CL-Class into S-Class Coupe, Mercedes-Benz decided to rename one of its most popular SUVs.

The latest reports indicate that the M-Class will change its name because the German carmaker wants a new naming structure where its SUVs and CUVs will start with G. As a result, the M-Class will become GLE-Class, while the production version of the Concept Coupe SUV will arrive as the GLE Coupe.

And the news continues because the GLK-Class will become GLC-Class because it will be based on the C-Class. In addition, the coupe version of the GLC-Class will be called GLC Coupe.

So, next year when you want to order a brand new M-Class and you will not know why the salesman is looking at you strange, make sure you ask for a GLE-Class SUV.
