Chrysler Canada compares Jeep to Mercedes ML

by David Zatz on

A dealer announcement for Chrysler Canada compared the Jeep Grand Cherokee to, among other competitors, the Mercedes ML 350. The two vehicles were jointly developed in the DaimlerChrysler days, with Mercedes reportedly benefitting from Jeep 4×4 technologies.

The Pentastar 3.6 V6 in the Jeep is rated at 290 hp and a Canadian-standard highway gas mileage of 32 mpg; the Mercedes 3.5 V6 is rated at 268 hp and 28 mpg highway. (Canadian rating systems are different from those in the US; simply converting to US mpg does not solve discrepancies.)

The ML350 starts at C$57,400, compared with the Grand Cherokee Limited at C$46,995, but the Mercedes adds $4,500 for a power liftgate, heated rear seats, telescoping steering wheel, and seat memory, which are standard on the Jeep. Mercedes buyers, to match Jeep standard features, would have to add $975 for keyless starter, $900 for rear view camera (assuming Jeep buyers bought the $925 nav system), and $375 for iPod connection.
