2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE350 vs 2017 Lexus RX 350 near Panama City, FL

When it comes to the luxury midsize SUV segment, you have your fair share of options. But, which vehicle is the better equipped one? Here at ZT Motors of Fort Walton Beach, we can help you with your search! We gathered all the details and put together a comparison of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE350 vs 2017 Lexus RX 350 near Panama City, FL, to see which one comes out on top!

In terms of strength, the GLE350 effortlessly takes the cake this head-to-head battle. Underneath its hood, it houses the 3.5L V6 powertrain that is capable of 302 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque. Although the RX 350 also boasts a 3.5L V6 engine as standard, it’s power output pales in comparison to that of the GLE350, cranking out just 295 horsepower and 267 lb.-ft. of torque.

In conjunction with this, the components that make the 2017 GLE350 truly worth your while, and the Lexus RX 350 only subpar, may surprise you. While the RX 350 does achieve a slightly higher 20 MPG city1 rating, it only features a 19.2-gallon fuel tank. The GLE350, on the other hand, reaches a maximum 18 MPG city2 fuel economy on a massive 24.6-gallon fuel tank. Furthermore, the Mercedes-Benz GLE350 truly astounds with its maximum 7,200-lb. towing capacity3; the RX 350 falls short with just offering a maximum 3,500-lb. towing capability4.

This comparison of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE350 vs 2017 Lexus RX 350 near Panama City, FL, continues with how much each SUV offers inside. While both come equipped with 5-passenger seating, only the GLE350 comes out on top when it comes to cargo space. Behind the rear seat, you’ll have a roomy 38.2 cubic ft. of trunk volume5. In the 2017 RX 350, however, there is only 18.4 cubic ft. of cargo space in the back. For your convenience, both SUVs come standard with a split-folding second-row seat. Once again, though, the RX 350 struggles to keep up. Its 56.3 cubic ft. of maximum cargo room is just no match for the GLE350’s maximum 80.3 cubic ft. of volume5.

That is all for now with this battle of midsize luxury SUVs. Here at ZT Motors of Fort Walton Beach, you can take a ride in the winning GLE350 from this matchup of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE350 vs 2017 Lexus RX 350 near Panama City, FL, today!
