Performance is the name of the game for the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350. It comes powered by a 3.5L V6 engine that churns out 302 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, which allows it to tow a maximum of 6,600 pounds. Meanwhile, the 2017 Lexus RX 350 runs on a similar 3.5L V6 engine, yet it musters just 295 hp and 268 lb-ft of torque.
