This is the 2017 Mercedes-AMG GLE43 which will be debuting later this month at the LA Auto Show. For those keeping count, this is model number 9 in the AMG 43 family.

The GLE43 takes the place of the GLE400 and features the same twin-turbo 3.0L V6. But for the GLE43, power has increased by 33 horsepower and 30 pound-feet of torque for a total output of 362 hp and 384 lb-ft. This is paired with a nine-speed automatic and a tweaked version of the 4Matic all-wheel drive system. AMG has also added beefier brakes, revised steering, and a sportier suspension.

The exterior features an agressive body kit and a set of 20-inch wheels. Inside are a set of sport seats and unique trim finishes.

Mercedes will launch the GLE43 early next year. Pricing hasn't been announced at this time.
