Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Tahoe offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450, with comparable head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Tahoe will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Chevrolet Tahoe, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Tahoe will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Chevrolet Tahoe is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.

Dimensions
If you go with the Chevrolet Tahoe, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Tahoe transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.

Handling
The Chevrolet Tahoe has the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Chevrolet Tahoe will do just as well as the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Chevrolet Tahoe and the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.

Utility
The Chevrolet Tahoe offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Tahoe is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.
