Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 than in the Jeep Grand Cherokee, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.

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 GLE 350, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Grand Cherokee will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350. 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.

Dimensions
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Jeep Grand Cherokee doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.

Handling
The Jeep Grand Cherokee has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Grand Cherokee greatly out-muscles the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.

Utility
The Jeep Grand Cherokee has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, making the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Grand Cherokee is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.
