2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Grand Cherokee than in the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Grand Cherokee as you will with the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Jeep Grand Cherokee is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Jeep Grand Cherokee will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Grand Cherokee is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Drivetrain
The Jeep Grand Cherokee has much lower torque than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Jeep Grand Cherokee has the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is clearly the choice over the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Grand Cherokee greatly out-muscles the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. The Jeep Grand Cherokee has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Grand Cherokee is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.
