The seven DYNAMIC SELECT drive programs “Comfort”, “Sport”, “Sport+”, “Individual”, “RACE” (exclusive to the S variant of the GLE 63 Coupé), “Trail” and “Sand” allow a very varied driving experience with a wide spread between maximum comfort and agile sportiness. The modes modify key parameters, such as the response of the engine, transmission, suspension and steering.
The drive programmes are linked to the AMG DYNAMICS agility control, which means that the handling characteristics can be even more closely matched with different requirements and driving conditions. Behind the umbrella term “AMG DYNAMICS” are the agility functions “Basic”, “Advanced”, “Pro” and “Master”, whose functions are automatically selected by the respective drive programme. The further “Traction” and “Slide” levels come into effect in the Off-Road “Trail” and “Sand” drive programmes when the ESP® is deactivated.
Parameters relevant to driving, such as the response of the engine and suspension or the control thresholds of the completely redeveloped ESP®, are intelligently adapted according to the drive programme. The spectrum ranges from extremely safety-oriented to highly dynamic. The “Master” mode stored in the RACE drive programme ensures optimum agility and brings out the high driving dynamics potential to optimum effect – for example through higher yaw rates and a faster response from the accelerator pedal, gearshift system, electronically controlled rear axle locking differential or brake force distribution of the all-wheel drive system.
