Comparison Review

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

Convenience

Cost

When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Wagoneer will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz GLS 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 GLS 450.

If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jeep Wagoneer, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450.

Powertrain
