Question Mercedes 3.0L vs. VW 3.0L

Looking at purchasing either a Jeep Grand Cherokee with the Mercedes or the VW Touareg. Love the Touareg except for the price. Jeep much better price not quite as nice, probably not as capable off road.

Anybody driving either out there? Any experience with these two engines? What kind of mileage are ya gettin from them? Any help is greatly appreciated!

I have had a couple Grand Cherokee's in the past. They are very capeable vehicles. I cannot speak of the Mercedes diesel though I do have a VW 1.9 PD BRM. It's a little fuel sipper, with a fair amount of power. I would venture to say that the Jeep is a better offroad vehicle, at least in my opinion. Good luck with your decision.

The numbers on the diesels are so close, this will likely be preference over aesthetics.
