The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has standard Active Head Restraints, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. During a rear-end collision, the Active Head Restraints system moves the headrests forward to prevent neck and spine injuries. The AMG E-Class Wagon doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

When descending a steep, off-road slope, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk’s optional Hill-descent Control allows you to creep down safely. The AMG E-Class Wagon doesn’t offer Hill-descent Control.

Both the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and the AMG E-Class Wagon have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, driver knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, height adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, all wheel drive, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, blind spot warning systems, rearview cameras and rear cross-path warning.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk weighs 631 pounds more than the Mercedes AMG E-Class Wagon. The NHTSA advises that heavier vehicles are much safer in collisions than their significantly lighter counterparts.

Jeep’s powertrain warranty covers the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk 1 year and 10,000 miles longer than Mercedes covers the AMG E-Class Wagon. Any repair needed on the engine, transmission, axles, joints or driveshafts is fully covered for 5 years or 60,000 miles. Coverage on the AMG E-Class Wagon ends after only 4 years or 50,000 miles.

There are over 6 times as many Jeep dealers as there are Mercedes dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk’s warranty.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk’s engine uses a cast iron block for durability, while the AMG E-Class Wagon’s engine uses an aluminum block. Aluminum engine blocks are much more prone to warp and crack at high temperatures than cast iron.

To reliably power the ignition and other systems and to recharge the battery, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has a standard 220-amp alternator. The AMG E-Class Wagon’s 180-amp alternator isn’t as powerful.

The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk’s 6.2 supercharged V8 produces 104 more horsepower (707 vs. 603) and 18 lbs.-ft. more torque (645 vs. 627) than the AMG E-Class Wagon’s 4.0 turbo V8.

The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has 3.5 gallons more fuel capacity than the AMG E-Class Wagon (24.6 vs. 21.1 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has a standard cap-less fueling system. The fuel filler is automatically opened when the fuel nozzle is inserted and automatically closed when it’s removed. This eliminates the need to unscrew and replace the cap and it reduces fuel evaporation, which causes pollution. The AMG E-Class Wagon doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system.

For better traction, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has larger tires than the AMG E-Class Wagon (295/45R20 vs. 265/35R20).

Changing a flat tire near traffic can be dangerous and inconvenient. The run-flat tires standard on the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk can be driven up to 50 miles without any air pressure, allowing you to drive to a service station for a repair. The AMG E-Class Wagon doesn’t offer run-flat tires.

The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk offers an optional space-saver spare tire so you can replace a flat tire and drive to have the flat repaired or replaced. A spare tire isn’t available on the AMG E-Class Wagon; it requires you to depend on roadside assistance and your vehicle will have to be towed.

The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is 7.3 inches shorter than the AMG E-Class Wagon, making the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

For enhanced passenger comfort on long trips the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk’s rear seats recline. The AMG E-Class Wagon’s middle row seats don’t recline.

The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk’s instruments include an oil pressure gauge and a temperature gauge - which could save your engine! Often ‘idiot lights’ don’t warn you until damage has been done. The AMG E-Class Wagon does not have an oil pressure gauge.

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has a standard rear fixed intermittent wiper with a full on position. The rear wiper standard on the AMG E-Class Wagon only has an intermittent setting, so in a hard rain visibility isn’t as good.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has standard headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The AMG E-Class Wagon doesn’t offer headlight washers.

To shield the driver and front passenger’s vision over a larger portion of the windshield and side windows, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has standard extendable sun visors. The AMG E-Class Wagon doesn’t offer extendable visors.

The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has a standard heated steering wheel to take the chill out of steering on extremely cold winter days before the vehicle heater warms up. A heated steering wheel costs extra on the AMG E-Class Wagon.
