Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wagoneer than in the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450. The Jeep Wagoneer offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Wagoneer as you will with the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450, 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 Wagoneer is somewhat more expensive 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 Jeep Wagoneer is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Wagoneer is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Jeep Wagoneer, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.

Handling
The Jeep Wagoneer has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Wagoneer is clearly the choice over the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 for pulling heavy loads. The Jeep Wagoneer has a little more horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Jeep Wagoneer transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Wagoneer and the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.

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