The New Mercedes-Benz GLE and GLE Coupé are Here!

Welcome to the second edition of our ZIMOCO Newsletter which includes some very interesting articles on the new product ranges being introduced or updated by our leading suppliers.

However, firstly, it is with great sadness that we say goodbye to a long serving member of the ZIMOCO family. Colin Mann worked for ZIMOCO for the past 19 years as the Body Repair Centre Manager and was well known for his excellence in his field and his passion for cars. Colin passed away after a long struggle with illness. He will be sorely missed and remembered by us all for his sharp wit and dedication to his work. Our sincere condolences go to his daughter Trish, son Peter, his family and friends.

Quality and innovation should be high on everyone’s wish list when buying a new car or commercial vehicle. We are pleased as ZIMOCO, to be able to offer this throughout our model portfolio. From Mercedes-Benz we have the new GLE (ML replacement) which is state of the art in terms of technology. It incorporates so many new safety features of which there are too many to mention in my address but come and see this magnificent beast for yourself at our Club Chambers showroom. We also have the new Coupé on display which will set your adrenalin flowing!! The new E Class will also be with us shortly. This, again, sets the bar at a new height against the competition. The technology developments on the new E Class put it in a class of its own and any driver would appreciate this new “Benz”.

It is important to note when purchasing a new Mercedes-Benz car or SUV that the re-sale value in Zimbabwe is very high compared with the competition. It is also enhanced by having it regularly serviced at ZIMOCO where the car is connected online with Germany to ensure optimum running and technology updates - just like your computer software. ZIMOCO are fully equipped to handle all of these high technology models.

On the commercial vehicle side we have stock of Mercedes-Benz buses to suit all needs and applications. If you need a school bus or staff bus that is cost effective and gives reliable long term service then we have the bus in stock for you. They may be more expensive than other makes on the market but you can be rest assured that your children or staff will be transported safely in a Mercedes-Benz bus. Parts and service are available at ZIMOCO Douglas Road for these buses.

Please contact our sales teams for more information on the exciting new range of products available from ZIMOCO to suit very pocket.

The Mercedes Benz GLE - making the best of every ground

Mercedes-Benz has thoroughly revised its best seller, formerly known as the M Class (ML), in the SUV segment to bring you the new GLE. High efficiency and outstanding handling both on and off road are among its strengths.

The new GLE has considerably more appealing front and tail ends. New headlamps with the daytime driving lights forming the brand’s hallmark eyebrows, catch the eye. The tail end of the GLE is likewise matched to the current design idiom with new LED tail lamps which flow in the brand’s hallmark night design. Furthermore, front and rear bumpers are fitted with the 3D chrome-look underride guard and new light alloy wheels boost the superior appearance of the new GLE.

Outstanding safety and a high level of driving dynamics both on the road and in terrain are also one of the other strengths of the premium SUV. The GLE also impresses with ground breaking assistance systems. For example, the 9 speed 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission and the innovative DYNAMIC SELECT dynamic handling control system which offers up to six drive programmes are already in basic specification.

We have a variety of efficient and powerful engines available to choose from. Most notably, the new Mercedes-Benz GLE 63 4MATIC is now stronger and more appealing than ever with an expanded model line-up and even more power. Following the introduction of the new naming logic, the successor of the successful Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG is now called the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 and the AMG 5.5 litre twin-turbo V8 engine is even more powerful than before.

For an even sportier choice, Mercedes-Benz has introduced the GLE Coupé. The sporty nature of a coupe dominates, imbued with the striking characteristics of a robust SUV. This is an SUV with the heart and soul of a sports car. Come to our ZIMOCO Club Chambers Showroom and take a look at the exciting new GLE and GLE Coupé and make the best of every ground.

The Jeep Summit

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit is the most luxurious vehicle in its class. It is the most impressive representation of how top-end luxury and extreme capability can be combined in an unforgettable way.

The sophisticated Summit model features a sumptuous and inviting interior with premium Natura Plus leather-trimmed heated seats with edge welting, a refined suede like premium headliner and exotic open-pore world accents with distinct copper trim or chrome trim accents. Our commitment to excellence carries over to the leather-trimmed instrument panel door, centre console, gear stick and armrest. A confident and elegant exterior design exudes strength from every angle. The Summit features premium styling treatments including a modern front grille and fascia, daytime running headlamps, projector fog lamps and capless fuel filters.

The Summit also comes with over 70 available safety and security features. Most notable is the Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) system which employs dual radar sensors to check driver blind spots and constantly monitor the space between your Grand Cherokee and other vehicles. When the BSM system detects a vehicle that’s too close, the driver is notified with an audible chime and illuminated icons that appear on the exterior mirrors.

Furthermore, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit carries the Jeep brand tradition of providing legendary Selec-Terrain Traction Control System, ground clearance, manoeuvrability, exceptional fuel economy and a smooth and efficient eight-speed transmission. As the Most Awarded SUV Ever - The Jeep Grand Cherokee has received more awards over its lifetime than any other SUV. Come and see this vehicle for yourself at our ZIMOCO Borrowdale Showroom.
