Alabama-made Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé to battle ‘Jurassic World’ dinosaurs

TUSCALOOSA, Alabama — Mercedes-Benz’s newest Alabama-made vehicle, the GLE Coupé, will race through the jungles of “Jurassic World,” the highly anticipated next installment of the blockbuster dinosaur movie series that previously featured the automaker’s first Alabama-made automobile.

The GLE Coupé, which will enter mass production at the company’s Tuscaloosa County plant this year, is among several Mercedes vehicles appearing in “Jurassic World,” a Universal Pictures film that debuts June 12. Mercedes has promoted its connection to the movie on its social media channels and displayed action clips of the GLE Coupé in the film during January’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

“We are delighted to have been able to support this epic action-adventure with our vehicles,” said Dr. Jens Thiemer, head of marketing communications for Mercedes-Benz Cars. “Our wide range of SUVs in particular fit perfectly with ‘Jurassic World’s’ requirements, with the focus on our new trendsetter, the GLE Coupé.”
